    @Maturin

    Very true, the buck should stop with them. The more likely scenario is that Randy Pitchfork will do the same thing he did when Duke Nukem Forever got bad reviews :

    ďFirst of all it is great, itís very, very entertaining, itís very fun. Itís also Aliens frickiní Colonial frickiní Marines!. One could not be a gamer in this world without consuming that and having that experience.Ē

    Interestingly, i've just realised EG also gave Duke Nukem Forever 3/10.....

    I don't understand the score though. The game is clearly shit. Why give it 3 rather than zero. Shows what nonsense scores are.

    Trying MP before I bike this down to CEX

    Isn't 3 shit though? A game that gets that score means surely to be avoided like the plague. To be honest, anything below 6 I avoid. An average game is never a 5 any day of the week.

    Presumably the 3 points were for the GIF posted earlier.

    Given the hype and sheer weight of expectation, Gearbox and Randy "Molyneux 2.0" Pitchford have no excuses.

    It doesn't make me angry, just sad because it feels as though nobody cared enough.

    I really wanted this to be good against all odds. Sad now =/

    As for scores, I'd reserve zeros for those half-broken flash games you see for sale in a twirly display unit in the supermarket, branded as educational PC games.

    So we continue the wait for a good Aliens game. Shame.

    If it couldn't be done with five years and presumably lots of money from Fox and Sega it's safe to say it's never going to happen.

    Still holding out hope for a Breakfast Club platformer though.

    the "broken game engine" he's on about... does this affect PC too? Or just console versions?

    The Guardian review is one of the most shameful pieces of shit games journalism I've read in a while. Note the grovelling shite at the beginning trying to justify the nonsense that is to follow. I know opinions differ - but Nick Cowen's description of the game flies in the face of all the other reviews. He either didn't play it, is reviewing some footage or is mad as a box of frogs.

    I think I've decided I can't justify 40 quid on this.† I think I'm going to get Far Cry 3 today instead and get a secondhand copy of AvP, to scratch that itch.† Or maybe Dead Space 2 and 3.† Or maybe that Port Royale 3 that I saw Mr Lutz playing.† So many excellent games I haven't played I can spend my money on.

    I think it's time I dug my AvP CD out again. Wonder how well it copes with Win7 - or rather, how well Win7 copes with it.

    cant say i am suprised, as its been mentioned before a dead space style game would be ideal but think this is a nail in the coffin for the alien franchise for a while.

    need something fresh. i am getting very bored of FPS's

    I just remembered I have a copy of AvP2 at my parents. Might have to pick it up next time I visit.

    I can't believe they cancelled the Obsidian Aliens RPG, but kept this around. Damn shame.

    I'm sure there's a parallel universe where the RPG was released and was terrible, and we were wishing that the amazing looking Gearbox FPS hadn't been cancelled.

    Tragic really, when this is arguably the best aliens game around.

    You'd think *someone* would be able to create a decent alien game, surely?

    How the hell can the quality team look at this and go "Yup, that looks fine"?

    It's technically fine on the PC, some of the textures are rather low res but it's only UE3 and that runs pretty well on any gaming PC these days, even things that needed upgrading ages ago like my old box.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    @Whizzo Cheers mate. I have it preloaded on Steam for when I get home, was just wondering whether the review was based purely on the xbox version, which it seems it is.

    Most reviews hated Dead Island, I see a lot of people on various forums saying they're enjoying it. It is what you make of it I suppose.
