Well the game tries in it's own way. The film was a action/horror work of art were as the game goes for action with alittle suspense. Yes, the graphics aren't amazing but they are a hell of alot better than the "remastered" Doom3 which had more flat surfaces than a stealth bomber. their are some real nice touches in the game, from computer screens in the sulaco showing the original view of lv426 from ALIEN, to the spooky remains of hadleys hope. The NPC characters move alittle stiff but to be honest I was too busy enjoying myself wandering around the sulaco to notice...
The gameplay is standard FPS, but then again what do you expect? this kind of game has been around forever and it's getting harder for developers to find that special something. The enemy AI is ok, think the first F.E.A.R game and you'll be about right. the human bad guys shout to each other and duck/crouch behind stuff, fire blind at you etc... just like in FEAR, and the aliens come from just about every angle possible. the much slated motion tracker has it's uses as several times the aliens/bad guys stop moving and hide in the dark, you can't see them but the motion tracker finds them. another plus, your trusty flash light doesn't need to recharge, when it's on, it stays on!
After reading that the game is too easy I'm playing it on "hardened". the humans take several shots to put down, and are lethal with grenades. The aliens attack in packs and deliver pretty hard punches. if you want a challenge skip "recruit" and "soldier". I'm finding the game just about right for me.Read more ›
The upside is that the Collector's Edition comes with a highly desirable figurine. It's really two - or three - figurines in one, with an Alien attacking a Colonial Marine who's manning a Power Loader - all mounted on a cargo hold display base. The Alien is bluish, but this mirrors the game (Aliens are never bluish in the films, though they are in this game). The figurine is very detailed and accurate, and looks like a premium item. It's worth getting the Collector's Edition for the figurine alone.
It's 4 stars for the figurine and 1 star for the game, and, for those who are really into Alien figures, a quick heads-up: Play Arts Kai is about to release two action figures based on this game, the Aliens Colonial Marines Play Arts Kai Lurker Action Figure and the Aliens Colonial Marines Play Arts Kai Spitter Action Figure.
Let me first deal with the Collector's Edition. The Powerloader is AWESOME!!!!! It is brilliantly detailed and is an excellent Collector's Edition offering. The rest of the extras such as the USS Sephora blueprint and so on are also really nice but come in as a distant second compared to the Powerloader. I do think the extras are worth paying for (the difference now between the standard edition and Collector's Edition offered by Amazon.co.uk is negligible) as they are nice little reminders of the movies and so on, especially the Colonial Marines patches which are also really detailed. The bonus map (the Colonial Marine Academy Firing Range) I found to be poor and boring and only played it for about 10-15 minutes. The four playable characters that are also offered are only for multiplayer as are Ripley's flamethrower and the sonic ball devices and that was rather disappointing but I should have expected that.
Now to the game.......I have yet to finish the game but I must admit I have so far enjoyed playing it. Yes, the graphics are dated (reminded me of the graphics from Resistance: Fall of Man) and yes the AI of your teammates is pathetic to the point that you are seemingly always fighting the Xenomorphs and W-Y Merc's singlehandedly but the game is still fun!!!Read more ›
The game has its flaws but if you are an Aliens fan its worth picking this up although maybe wait when it drops in price.
As for the collectors edition you get a nice powerloader/alien statue, some extra DLC codes for the 4 movie characters, and some nice blue prints for the sephora ship, colonial marines mission briefing and few other weyland yutani items . Would of been nice if they had a steel book case like they did with the 2010 AVP however.
