Played it and completed it.
Co-Op online is interesting, especially in Ultimate Bad Ass mode. The fact you dont know how much health you have, what your armour condition is, you rely on your ammo counter on the side and the fact friendly fire is on.
Visuals are... dated.

I would give the Game a 5 out of 10. Nothing special, very generic shooter. Had so much potential but missed the expected target. They have brought nothing new to the scene. Although there is now a rather unexpected twist to the Aliens "Canon".

Unfortunately i agree it was over hyped, but what games developer would ever actually say "HEY! BUY THIS GAME! ITS RATHER GENERIC!"

But i must agree with someone who posted on IGN - "It seems these days that unless you follow COD or Halo in gameplay people will slate the game".

The game works fine. Assuming you're capable of doing some basic google skills to fix the problems.

I'm honestly shocked anybody was surprised by his failure. The commericals alone screamed failure to me.

Another bad game, I was suspicious the moment they didn't release a extensive demo. Its generic and lacks polish, if it was released 5-7 years ago it would have been considered a good game, but it gets a solid meh these days.

Name one game that isn't COD battlefield starcraft for the PC that did well.

I'll give you a hint. there isn't any why? because 99% of the fan base is to stupid to understand what the golden age of PC gaming was. If the original quake or doom was released today instead of the 90's people would be slamming it saying that it should be more like COD.

ACM is a great game it's what aliens 3 should have been.

I want another remake of Alien vs Predator, but with good combat mechanics and not the rock, paper, scissors style combat.

Or ... maybe 99% of the fan base isn't stupid. Maybe its their goddamn money and they'll spend it however they damn well please. And because they want something like COD or Battlefield or Starcraft -- thats why the corporations focus on these game types.

People aren't stupid just because they don't conform to your idea of how a game should be.
