There is a bit of a learning curve as it it a strategy game in the first person perspective (as Hunter) or 3rd person (as Monster). It is not a typical Rambo style run and gun FPS.
Hunters must communicate and work as a team. Utilizing their current characters strengths to cover their teammates weaknesses. Monsters must use stealth and hit and run tactics as they see fit. Bring the fight to the Hunters where and when you want it, and on your terms.
Most of the negative reviews are not a fault of the game. They are the confusion of the customer not knowing how to read, or how to play a strategy game vs a COD style arena shooter.
Also don't worry about getting the DLC. Just get the base game. You won't miss out on any game types, maps or fun! This game differs from COD and Battlefield, and most other games with DLC that end up dividing the user base. Wait for the Monster add on, or Hunter add on to go on sale. No point in getting them now as they are not even out yet.… Expand

The Graphics are not the best and the AI for both aliens and friendly npc is wonky most of the time. But I enjoyed the atmosphere created by the lighting, sounds. and the levels. I'm playing on "Ultimate Bad-Ass" difficulty so I have no HUD at all. I jumped into some 4 player coop and had a really good time. Lots of aliens from all directions, one player on the motion tracker calling out locations and distances. Felt like Hudson in the movie. "We got movement, Can't lock in..." Granted its not the game I think we were all hoping for. Nor does it live up to the hype or what Gearbox promised. But it was fun. Not worth $60, more of a $30 budget title I think. Play it in co-op with a bunch of serious adult gamers and you will have fun. Role-play it up and it will be a blast, especially in "Bad-Ass" mode. You will have to use team work and share the ammo and health. Adds more tension to the game.… Expand
