i waited for this game and was hugely dissapointed upon its release. which felt like slap in the face, after all the promises from Gear Box software. however... despite the bitter taste in my mouth and although alot of people are still slating this game. since its release it has had alot of major patching, and after some months it has started to deliver, i think, an experience any lover of the aliens film would get enjoyment from. It strenght's are the multiplayer modes which can be fantastic, and the fact that it supports a co-op and split screen campaign. there is alot of fun to be had with friends here. you can be laughing at the game on those bits where it comes up short.
The single player campaign's plot is still complete garbage, and someone should still be shot for allowing this joke to become alien cannon. But the recent addition of DLC modes and the excellent DLC campaign 'status interrupted' for me deliver much more the experience promised. so i would say although to get a decent game's worth of content you will have to buy the DLC . it is something worth owning if your a lover of the franchise or just the film aliens. you can still have lot of fun here.. for price it goes for now it would just be silly not to own it :)
