reason why this game gets hate is...

it's not an awful game by any means. it's far from great, but it suffers from two main things:

1. the bar was set really, really high. people have extremely high expectations that were not met.

2. the final product was very, very different from what was advertised in gameplay videos, tech demos, and actual words

i think that more than anything people are pissed about being lied to or misled.

Indeed, the demo and promo vids were what made me think I'd get an awesome aliens pc game that would finally get things right. Unfortunately it seems the game got downgraded :(

Gearbox was greedy and postponed the game taking their best people to work on Borderlands 2. Twentieth Century Fox put the squeeze on Sega that GET THE GAME OUT. Sega forces Gear Box (who was irresponsible with the license) to release the game before it was finished.

Has anyone ever played a good game that came with a 20th Century Fox logo? Nope.

i don't think it was greed, i think it was just poor planning. also, too many cooks spoil the broth or something (i think that's the cliche), failures to communicate, that kind of stuff.

having more than one developer developing a single game has, to my knowledge, never turned out well.

Don't mind the quality I just wanted to get it on video just in case it went away.

These are 2 instances of many BTW. Really should be no excuse for this stuff on a game with a 6 year dev cycle.

Yeah, if they wouldn't have showed us that awesome demo footage of what "could have been", i wouldn't have been so disappointed to begin with, but they lied to us all the way until release, and even after all of this, if they actually had downscaled the game's graphics to make room for more content, awesome gameplay and AI, i wouldn't have even mind the sub par graphics, but the whole thing just isn't good at all...

#2. I didn't see any of that early footage and only have this game because I won it.

It's fun especially in multiplayer, but after seeing the footage I can see where all the hate came from. I can't believe they made that tech demo and pushed it as the real game. It is seriously scary to see this done and I don't know what made them do any of this.
