Not the Alien you were looking for..XenoSilence | Feb. 8, 2014 | See all XenoSilence's reviews »
But it is the Aliens game they said it was.
Many expected a horror survival title but Aliens (2nd movie) wasn't exactly a horror movie. This game scratches the itch to kill the most iconic sci-fi bad guy ever made and it does it well -- dead aliens by the droves.
Multiplayer is awesome, its only flaw being p2p hosting being very unreliable making it hard to find a decent game but when you do it is great fun and definitely more terrifying than campaign.
Over all it is an enjoyable singleplayer and multiplayer experience if you enjoy blowing up aliens and never asking questions -- before or after.
Above average game!iFLIP07 | Oct. 16, 2013 | See all iFLIP07's reviews »
This game is great when it comes to online multiplayer. Though the singleplayer didn't make me as happy as the multiplayer did. The singleplayer can be fun with friends (coop) it makes you forget about its poor story. Didn't enjoy the story at all. The gameplay is a bit weird, from the way friendly NPC do things to the alien's movements; its almost like a glitch but yet I don't think it is. Graphics is 4 out of 5 which is good but could've been better. SFX and Music gets a 4.5... made the game more suspense and intense.
Multiplayer is my where I got my best experience from. You can play as a human and as an alien and really enjoyed playing as one too. Always funny whenever I kill a human friend.
Game is hard for both single and multiplayer. If you like a challenge, get this game!
Decent After PatchesiDangl3z | Sept. 30, 2013 | See all iDangl3z's reviews »
Before the patch, I thought this game was garbage. Some of the graphics were horrendous, and it just didn't feel like a finished game. Now that it has been patched, the game looks much better and modes like survival are really fun to play! Story is okay and so is multiplayer, but this game is definitely worth playing at least once
Keeps Getting BetterPlagueofMidgets | Aug. 28, 2013 | See all PlagueofMidgets's reviews »
I would say it is worth it now after the patches. The game is not nearly as bad as people say it is. The console versions maybe but the PC version has gotten increasingly better over time. The bug hunt DLC is a fun co-op experience as well. I purchased the game with the season pass bundled for $8 and I am very happy with my purchase. I grew up with the Alien franchise so perhaps I can appreciate it a bit more. It isn't an award winning game but it's no Bad Rats or Secret of the Magic Crystals and people still purchase those. Hope this helps!
It had bad impression however in some sense, it ain't bad also.Cronoblade | Aug. 12, 2013 | See all Cronoblade's reviews »
The 1st time I played this game, it gave me an bad impression. The texture ain't great, the sound for the pulse rifle has loop and a pause in the middle, the flow of the game gets boring.
The graphics isn't as good as AvP. The worse is that it doesn't look as good as they demo last time. You can see the character movement is stiff. Some textures, you will noticed it low quality. However, it was fixed with patch and it is alot better than last time. It used to have bad performance due to bug but it is fixed now. Whatever they demo, you ain't gonna find it here.
The sounds for the pulse isn't good. The shotgun is generic, so no issue. Others are fine. I ain't gonna complain on the voice acting. The aliens hissing and death scream is fine. Nothing much to talk about it. It had 1 good atmosphere during the sewer level. The story is between the aliens 2 and alien 3. It talks about the event after aliens 2 movie. It has memorable event and easter eggs in the game. If you're a fan of aliens, you will be happy to see them. However, in terms of how they do the story telling. There are alot of plot holes and sometimes it doesn't flow together well with the previous aliens 2 movie. No spoiler here but you will know when you play it.
Now for the gameplay. When you play alone, it's ok. When you play with coop, it's fun after using the highest difficulty. This game is dirt easy. The good part is that you can to fight alot of aliens. Maybe 5 on the screen compared to AvP. However, this game doesn't have the tension or atmosphere that would creep you out. It is more like an action game. In way, it's good but old alien fans will not be happy about it. The combat is fine when fighting aliens but i felt that the close quarter feels buggy. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. Aliens AI are fixed, they don't get stuck that often. The AI sometimes gets stuck and you can't progress the game until you restart. Now the AI doesn't block you anymore like last time, you can go through them. They fixed this so you get stuck when the AI doesn't move. When you play SP/Coop, you gain level to upgrade your weapons.
The demo overhyped the game badly. You won't experience the same event in the demo. Even when you killed the aliens, they just dissolve compared to demo, which it stays. Although the levels is there but it doesn't have the same epic event it supposed to give to you. Even the introduction of the demo is better than the actual game.
The game isn't as bad as most people said. It is playable but forgettable. The multiplayer online is kinda dead since nobody is playing now. Get this if you have enough friends to play with for cooperative.
