''The Alien franchise has gone through so many sticky periods that it’s a wonder it’s still profitable. From the production hell that was Alien 3, the comedy styling of Reconstruction, and the god-awful AvP flicks, you’d think that would be enough to kill the brand. The franchise hasn’t done all that great in video game form either. There hasn’t been a truly great game featuring the humble Xenomorph since Alien Vs Predator 2. There have been many attempts to capture the tone of the films, mostly of Aliens, but the majority have failed.''
