The sequal we all wanted...

I personally waited two years to get my hands on a copy of this game. As a huge fan of the Aliens franchise, there was no questions that this was a definite purchase for me. I think the game is satisfying for those who were curious to see what Gearbox had to offer in respect to a follow up to 1986's Aliens; the sequel we all wanted. The graphics are very 90's; using the unreal engine, a little dated I must say. There are also quiet a few glitches in the game, like trying to scuttle through a vent as a Xenomorph and not being able to turn the corner, quiet annoying! All in all though; as a die hard fan of this franchise, pleasantly satisfying!
