- The Bottom Line:
I am not sure why this game is getting bashed so bad. It is like de ja vu of the Resident Evil 6 release last October. One bad review from a website with terrible writers and bad reviews go viral. Die hard Aliens Universe fans will love this game. Much better presentation and attention to details than the Aliens Vs. Predator XBOX 360 game. I agree the graphics are inconsistent in some areas of the game, but what game is perfect. This game is truly atmospheric in the xenomorph infested areas. I personally love when you have to use the motion tracker to detect the xenos and the classic movie blips lead to all hell breaking loose as the Aliens bust through grates in the floor and the ceiling to take you out. I had to turn the lights back on because the surprise alien ambushes made me jump a few times. The sound of the pulse rifles and smart guns are true to the franchise and the Easter Eggs throughout the game are rewarding. It was cool to pick up Corporal Hick's shotgun to use against "Close Encounters". The plot isn't original, but what Alien movie has one. You can easily predict when things are about to go "south", but the game does an excellent job building up the intensity. In a nutshell, if you are an Aliens fan, buy this game and ignore the terrible reviews.
