I was pretty disappointed with the game, it seems to be a completely different game than the one they had in the gameplay teaser.
Established cut-scenes that are missing from the final version, sub-par textures, occasionally inane dialog by the in-game AI, AI that often does nothing while you're being attacked and hit detection that is ridiculous.
Having said all that, once my approach to the game changed, I'm still disappointed but still playing.
Being able to walk through scenes such as those found on the Sulaco, Hadley's Hope and the alien derelict made up for some of the problems.
I just wish that after all of the delays and statements made by the devs, that it could have been so much better....it should have been so much better.

Thanks for the FYI Cold Canuck...I don't play video games (because of an addiction, I'll tend to play all the time and lose the wife in the process Wink )...so I stopped playing Very Happy

Did you hear others who were of the same opinion? I noticed that the "trailer" for video games has way much better graphics than the actual game. Marketing tool I guess Confused

Yeah, it's often the case where the trailer is of a better quality graphics-wise, but when you are told that the images you are viewing, are actual gameplay...they should be true to what you will encounter in-game.
Added to that are actual scenes that are completely missing from the game that are in the trailer Shocked Confused
As far as what other opinions are being expressed by the rest of the gaming community, I'd say that the vast majority of gamers use words that I simply won't repeat here :- Very Happy

The difference between the more vocal reviewers and I, is that I enjoyed walking through the alien derelict as well as Hadley's Hope, especially with details from the movie in place... besides, on the highest difficulty settings, it does get...intense Very Happy

I started this thread and I wound up never getting the game!The reviews on Amazon were so consistently against it that I never bothered(since reinforced even further by Cold Canuck and others).I'll get it in the bargain bin.A real shame. Sad

As messed up as this game is, I'd still get it again.
Shooting and scooting through Hadley's Hope, The Sulaco and the Derelict has been fun....fun enough, it seems.

Then I should probably not post the other video, the one where you get to see what caused the derelict to crash land on LV-426, eh?
