All these bad reviews. I have the game but havent played it yet. The good news..possibly? Reading all these bad reviews has really lowered my expectations for this game to the lowest it can be, so when I get up and play it, I'll be like 'oh its not as bad as I expected' :D
I think that's exactly how you'll feel. All these reviews made me nervous about a full price purchase, but my love of Alien 1, 2, and 3 made me buy it anyway. It has flaws to be sure, but I think this has finally cured me of looking at reviews. They are worthless.
Being only 2 hours into the game I love it so far. The game score is the MVP though. Cranking it through my system brings chills, and heart pumping tension to new heights. The game may or may not deliver through the long haul, but the music is king! But, so for it delivers exactly what I expect.
You mean AI standing still not attacking you on the hardest difficulty? http://www.youtube.com/watc... There is no defending this game, its a rare case that opinions go out the window but the AI is horrible, the textures are horrible, the animations are tragic. It deserves a flat out 0/10 as it is not a game, its an unfinished product boxed up and released.
I agree with the man above, save for the part about it being "unfinished" unpolished turd perhaps, but they had plenty of time to "finish it" Mass Effect 3 and Dead Space 3 had far shorter cycles and turned out great. The vision on this one was great, but the polish on the GAMEPLAY seems to be missing. I'm still gonna play it, but not for 60 bucks.
