Popped in Game last night (to buy the Killzone Trilogy, not this) but i did notice that a LOT of copies had been shifted - there were no display cases on the shelf and the cupboard behind the staff only had a few copies left in it.
Joe Public dont read reviews.
Also don't forget it's Aliens, people probably don't care about the reviews, it may be buggy, it may be a bit crap but atmosphere does go a long way look at Alien Trilogy or Resurrection on PS1, not brilliant and very rough but most of us loved 'em. Personal taste and tolerance plays a part to, AvP is a slated game by press and gamers on forums yet even last night I was still sitting there thinking "man I love this game" and many people also enjoyed it.
To be honest now PC footage is coming through on You Tube rather than the console footage that looks like a tearing rough mess of crap we've seen so far, I'm starting to think maybe it's not as bad a reviews are claiming. Not buying yet though, good thing about all the slating is it will sink in price VERY quickly.
