Not hating on the Alien fans here, I'm just being rational. There hasn't been a good movie tie in game since Goldeneye.

Agreed. However, the Ghostbusters game that came out a few years ago was simply stellar and basically what anyone could have asked for in a Ghostbusters 3 movie.

Agreed it's one of my favorite games of this generation.

I've actually been wanting to pick that one up for a while.

Chronicles Of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay was shockingly good. One of those super rare occourances where they took a shitty movie, and made a great game out of it.

That's about all I can think of though. Never played the Ghostbusters game.

Yup, that was a good game. I only played it for the first time about a year ago. I actually really like the Riddick character. Pitch Black was great but Chronicles was bad. I hope the new one doesn't suck.

Honestly, from what I've seen of the game (videos and all) it never really looked all that impressive to me.

I wouldn't be surprised if it sucks.

I couldn't care less about graphics. I'd rather a shitty looking game that was fun and well done, to a game that looks stunning but is ass water.

Gameplay isn't really that bad, I mean, it just feels 'limited'. I for one love pretty much everything about it, nor have I had any bugs or glitches apart from a WY Solider teleporting a whole inch. I'm having a blast playing it.

Just beat it tonight.
Spoiler Below
The Good:
  • Sound effects were pretty good.
  • Always great to return to Hadley's Hope/ LV-426
  • Legendary Weapons are a nice touch.
  • Love the various nods to Aliens.
  • Killing Xeno's is damn good fun.
The Bad:
  • Dragged on a bit at times.
  • Terrible dialogue/voice acting. O'Neal & Bella are just ugh..
  • WAY TOO MANY Yutani Soldiers, whole levels were dedicated to them at times it seemed.
  • Idiotic A.I., two boiler Xeno's saw me running around and chased me but never exploded but followed me around.
  • Ultimate Bad-Ass? Should have been called Ultimate Pain-in-the-Ass. Yutani soldiers have the accuracy of Hawkeye. At times I exploded seemingly out of nowhere when the Mercs were in cover not shooting.
  • One of the worst final boss fights you'll ever play in a video game.
  • Facehuggers are incredibly annoying in the Derelict ship.
  • Not a graphics hound guy by any means necessary but it did look pretty rough at times.
  • I've never noticed screen tearing before until I played this, it's everywhere. Audio didn't match up with the characters lips at times either and was off by half a second.

Wish this game had flares like AVP '10, would have preferred them over the flashlight. It's not the worst game ever but it really could have been better, I don't know but maybe a bit more polish and time would have helped a lot. I'd give it a 5/10.
