Were we surprised at these scores ?

No. I am just irritated by people who are saying "OMG its Aliens, I will buy it anyway" ....yeah, great call that. Buying a rubbish product because of the name.

I have a stale loaf of bread that James Cameron possibly looked at - yours for 50 quid ?

My sister looks a bit like a Xenomorph in the morning, the silly sods that are buying a bad game just because it has Aliens in can have her for a good price.

I got my copy for €25, so paid a budget price for a budget game.

The Aliens licence needs to be taken away from SEGA. FOREVER!

Brilliant !

I have read so many comments this morning - my favourite was
"6.2 seems pretty harsh, but I am a fan of the films so would rate it higher anyway"

Moron alert.


Guilty as charged. Just was waiting for this game for years.

I have removed the "moron alert" from my post, was far too harsh

My problem with people attaching themselves to a brand like a randy face hugger is that , especially when a duff product is produced, is that people buy it anyway. Regardless of whether its any good

If I rebranded Shaq Fu into Alien-Fu people would still buy it.

Gotta ask yourself - are the people buying an inferior product actually supporting the brand or degrading it ?

Look at all the toerags that bought Resident Evil 5 and 6

Couldn't agree more tbh. I am less disappointed than I am blinded with rage. F*ck you SEGA for taking advantage of f*cking retards like me didn't want t admit what was obvious a year ago. C*cksuckers.

Give it to guerrilla games, The AI in Killzone is incredible. I can only imagine what they'd be able to do with Aliens.

No I'm buying the game because I have faith that I may actually get some enjoyment out of it. Yes I loved the films, yes the second film was my fave, but CM makes a change, instead of having too shoot soldiers and Zombies we get to shoot Aliens.

Bonus fact: The Pulse rifle in the film is actually a modified tommy gun with a shotgun attached to the bottom of it.

So I'm what you call a "Toe rag" for actually playing RE5 and 6 and actually enjoying them? To me if a game is fun to play then its what I class as a "Good" game.

Any game that has an embargo so close to release is bound to be pants.

I didn't glance at this twice. A shame. NEXT.
Do you want Chilli on that?
