I actually like this game

I do, really. I am from the 80's though. The way I see it, all these type of games are the same bland thing, so this one, having sound and sights from one of the best movies of all time, works for me. There is plenty of awesome aliens action. And the story- well, at least its better than what was created for aliens 3 and beyond...

So yeah, If you too were shaped by Aliens movies as a kid, this game should work out OK for you. If you just want another AAA shooter, wait for like a month and another COD will be out.

Oh remember the Aliens arcade game? that was cool too.

Sadly, the way things are those of us that like this game either get called trolls or "fanboys" because the majority like to spread their hate.

I enjoyed my time with the game as well, but it is by no means "Good"
It feels like a first gen 360 game with it's graphical glitches and problems, like the people didn't know how to optimize the game.

Couldn't agree more, I look at it as fan service rather than a AAA title.

I love the multiplayer. When you have a good team it really feels like a genuine aliens experience.

I'm a huge Aliens fan and I really disliked this game. Played 11 hours of the game with maybe thirty minutes dedicated to the story. I even re-installed it after uninstalling it, after getting stuck on marines or in the walls. While I was able to tolerate most of the bugs, two things drove me away.

One was the very poor climbing controls of the Aliens. When I would be climbing immediately after jumping to the wall, the Aliens would start to climb at an angle, not upwards. This lead to many deaths that I did not deserve.

The second, which started to happen within the last three days, the immense lag I experienced each game. Players with 200 pings would cause some problems. Nothing compares to the last day of playing. Most matches were completely unplayable due to ping that was as high as 768.

I want to like this game so bad seeing as I've been a fan of the movies since I first saw them as a child but even I cannot put this aside.

I agree with this. The few times I was able to get a stable game and a good team I thought the game was spot on with what I wanted.

Because there's just not enough time in the day to play the game and post on here, right?
