    I know it is not great when I am sitrting here with it a day 1 game about an hour in and I am thinking about playing something else...

    That is always my barometer on how good a game is

    I think this thread has been more entertaining than the game probably will be. Interested to see the reviews hit tomorrow and then the initial defense by Sega/Gearbox followed by the truth of a protracted dev cycle a month or so .

    What's this Creative Assembly game then?

    There we are, a decent video review

    do you know what, it suddenly dawned on me what it reminds me off..

    Ghostbusters, my son still plays that and it has the constant problem of you do something then your AI buddies just stand there like fucking statues until you do something that the game requires you to do...

    It feels linear like that as well

    Youtube videos haven't buffered for me since about 1954. I'll take his word for it.

    Fuck me. Given that the film has only 2 types of enemy & a boss, a modern FPS is always gonna have to add to that somewhat, but that's what they came up with?

    Blind Aliens that have clearly shit themselves.

    What a fucking shambles.

    That video review is really quite positive.

    Am I the only one that thinks those Aliens look miniature? How tall are they supposed to be?

    When will Liverpool beat a top half team?

    Never, apparently.

    Just saw this elsewhere


    [QUOTE="tysonstorm;14436952"]I got this game early through 2game.com and if arrived yesterday. I must say I've never played such a woeful, pitiful game in my entire gaming life. If I could take it to CeX tomorrow and trade it in I would, however I'm having to wait until Tuesday until the official release to try and claw some of my money back. I'm gobsmacked how this game was approved for release. I mean what happened to the game they showcased at E3 2011? that was epic. :evil:

    No wonder there has been a media review embargo, this game is bad, real bad, I mean Duke Nukem Forever bad, if not worse. :-(

    2/10[/QUOTE]

    Bet you there are still 9/10 reviews. Then we'll know never to go near site again.

    Ign will probably give it a 7 or 8. Avp2 2010 got an 8.5 score if I remember right

    I've been reading the feedback thread on the Gearbox forums. Everyone who has played it says it's bad, not just a bad game, but also full of bugs and overall sloppiness such a screen tearing, texture pop-in (no surprise for anyone who has played Borderlands) and horrible AI.

    Kills an Alien. What does it spill? Blood. Red blood. Am I seeing things here?

    I just watched that video review and it really doesn't play too well does it? Just looks like a load of badly animated marines and aliens kind of just, well, walking around each other and getting a bit confused. The human opponents he fought towards the end (did I need to spoiler that? surely not but not sure!) just stood there and took it! Even as he was saying the game was worth the money that didn't tally up with what I saw on screen.

    Also, I quite enoyed the 2010 AvP. Think I'll just run through the marine campaign of that again instead. Well, until Gearbox issue a patch that deletes 99% of the game, makes it good, then reinstalls it.

    /finally lost faith

    Aliens V Predator was actually pretty solid, I picked it up for 7, and finished all 3 of the single player campaign which was great, the story lines were very well done and the singleplayer graphics were great. But it was linear and the multiplayer was a let down. But being the predator felt great especially in Jungle areas.

    Don't worry, it's appreciated here too hah!

    Anyway, yes that video review was a bit more positive - I've gone from no chance to Steam sale in a few hours. I am fickle!

    Well, I so wanted to love it - despite the rumours of it being less than stellar.

    But. It's shit. Really.

    Chronic.

    Seriously. Do. Not. Buy. It. AIien AI is pitiful. Ambience is the best bit and it constantly tramples it by sending 30 jerky aliens, who then stand around unless they are attacking you.

    It'll be 20 quid in a few weeks tops. Or less.

    What a stellar waste of cash, which I should have kept for Crysis....

    Got my copy from Shopto today. Just playing it now after arriving back from work. It's looking pretty bad from the title screen onwards. There is lots of tearing and graphical glitches and I'm barely through the opening level. This is bad....and I enjoyed Prometheus.

    Yeah even the title screen seems low res. Pretend your playing on a ps2. You'll feel better:-)
