    I recently brought it for £3 from PSN. It's not quite as bad as all that, although it is pretty bad.

    I'd give it a solid 4/10, it just about avoids being a 1,2 or 3 /10 imo, just for the Aliens vibe, as it does have some bits which are actually almost a little bit better than complete arse.

    Just keep your expectations low, and do your best to enjoy almost quite good Aliens set design.

    I've haven't tried the multiplayer yet, probably the best bit. Anyone want to try it on PS3, lets hook up.

    I tried playing multiplayer on this about 6 months ago and it was almost completely dead. Never got into a single game. I'd say you've got fuck all chance there outside of the odd co-op game.

    Was it an Xmas deal? I'd get it for £3. It's £20 again now.

    @itsoldsquarejaw Nah it's three quid used on amazon (well, plus two pound postage so a fiver).

    Few games on Xbox Deal of the Week so I'll wait a bit longer for this one. Still have this near impossible urge to play it though. God knows why. Really.

    I bought it for US$2 from Amazon. It's region-locked, though, so I'll have to wait until the next time I'm in the US on business before I can activate it.

    Oh, whatever will I do with my time until then?! :(

    I still really want to play this :-S

    Watched Aliens on TV last night and this game has actually ruined the film for me. It's all I could bloody think of. I'm not kidding but I think it has just dropped past Resurrection as the Alien film I enjoy the least. Cheers Gearbox.

    I picked it up for 3 quid from Game yesterday too. I actually apologised to the guy on the till when I handed it over.

    Oh and OMFG there is a actual extremely fit girl working in Game in the Oracle in Reading. Think she is half asian perhaps.

    @GiarcYekrub

    It's terribleness was greatly overstated, I think some of it is out of spite for the bait & switch. Rough Shooter and terrible plot but not the worst games ever, not even the worst Aliens game.

    I'd say look at bughunt if it goes cheap. MP is probably dead now but it can be played solo and is brilliant.

    @bad09 I think it's rather because it's so incredibly disappointing that it fucks with 20+ years of established canon. And because it's a poor man's COD with an Aliens skin.

    Take the plastic bag challenge to cure stupidity.

    Just let it die, like the deformed creature in a jar it is.

    BURN IT!

    Yeah, "official sequel" my facehuggers hairy arse it was Aliens for kids. Gotta love that "care" Randy Pitchfraud and his company of conmen took with it.

    As for poor mans COD, true...but isn't every FPS these days? To be honest gameplay wise I didn't think it was that bad, the human bit were beyond crap but up against the aliens it was OK and I quite enjoyed it. Even the rough MP was fun (shame the matchmaking on PC was utterly broken - the one thing they didn't fix you have to join Steam groups and pick out people playing :( ).

    I still think people are down on it more due to the very public bait & switch, it's become a poster child for the lies this industry calls marketing despite the fact lies and bait & switches have been happening forever.
