Yes, it fails miserably as a horror game.
Yes, it is a festival of bugs and Sega and Gearbox QA Teams should not just be fired, but also executed.
Yes, it has too much ammo, you never need to use your pistol, and you always feel too powerful to fell any fear.
Yes, the gibs and amputations are very poor and this is the less gory Aliens game since that platform shooter on Sega Genesis.
Yes, it is a rail shooter. Enemies always come in front of you, I am on the 5th level and I still didn't needed to use motion tracker one single time.
No, it's not a bad game. It has some good points. Some battles are very fun, the scenario is very varied and beautiful, set dressers did a very good job, it has some very good battles on wide open areas, invisible walls are rare, I personally liked the gunplay, I haven't seen an Aliens game with this huge enemy flow since Aliens Trilogy, the ability to customize the weapon in-game is cool, Oh, and the Soundtrack is fucking amazing.
Oh, you need to play this on Hardened difficulty, where a single warrior can easily kill you even if you have a full health bar, and bullets from Weyland Yutani Mercenaries are very fatal, a small burst on the face can kill you. Playing on a lower difficulty allows you to Rambo and it will destroy any tension that the game could have.
Oh, and it's so good to play a modern game that has armor and health bars and the health regeneration is very minimum.
Not finished the game yet, but 6/10 so far. Not as good as we expected, but not nearly as bad as how the critics are saying. At least it's much better than the latest popular games such as Medal of Honor, Warfighter, Modern Warfare 3 or Black Ops 2.
Now, let's just hope they release a patch to fix all the bugs.
