Average User Score: 3.8Feb 12, 2013This is going to be one of those "love or hate" type games, which to me is a complete surprise. I will admit I am a huge fan of the Alien universe and I actually think Gearbox have done a good job of making this game. The story is quite enjoyable and even though there is the occasional animation glitch etc overall I think the game is really polished. You can tell that the people who designed this game like the Aliens lore too. There are some nice and subtle throw backs to Aliens. Co-op is good fun and holds up well although the teleporting back together when people split up too much is a bit of a let down. I'm really enjoying the VS multiplayer as there are plenty of decent unlocks and it is done a lot better than AvP's efforts. Controlling the Xenomorphs is now easier thanks to a 3rd person view.
I do think the campaign is pretty short but having split screen 2 player co-op, plus 4 player online co-op and 5 vs 5 VS multiplayer makes up for the short campaign. I think this is a must if you are an Aliens fan and perhaps take a look first before deciding if you are not.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.1Nov 21, 2010This is simply the best arcade racer on current gen consoles for the last few years in my opinion. Everything oozes class and it is a great adrenaline experience. The "Aulolog" feature is dangerously addictive - being told constantly that a friend has just beaten your score means a hell of a lot of replayability. Multiplayer is a blast, despite there being too few modes - hoping some DLC may correct this. My only real complaint is the fact they haven't allow you to use the Kinect sensor to take a photo for your profile - hopefully that will be patched in with future updates. If you like arcade racers - get this now.… Expand
