It has 4 player co op, But If the take up Is slack here then I'll just go with the 360 version instead.

Ive said no, but I will definitely be getting this game at some point. I love the Aliens franchise, and I quite liked Alien Vs Predator game too.

Highly likely I'll get it on the 360 too, unless its a runaway success over here and people cant stop playing it.

That's probably the only reason i'd go out of my way to get this at any point soon.

I'll probably pick this up at some point once it's dirt cheap, I've really enjoyed the aliens games of the past, loved the last one where you could play as an alien and walk on the ceilings!

As tempted as I am - I can't afford any day 1 purchases this year.

I'm still waiting for Far Cry 3 Ni No Kuni(!) to drop in price first...

Aliens games are like Star wars games, one in ten is great, the rest are often stinkers so will wait and see.

Just read a few reviews on this, and it's not looking good. There was a demo at game shows which was supposedly fantastic. The game itself is apparently a total let down, too arcady and graphically lax. These are not my words and I haven't played it but on the basis of the reviews will not be getting this.

I think IGN gave it 3 / 10 so not good.

Yeah I wont be getting this unless very very cheap. I remember the Alien Vs Predator game getting a similar slating, yet I thought it was really good. I still think its a bloody good game too. But some of the Youtube videos have been absolutely scathing too, and the AI just looks plain idiotic at times. But Im a sucker for the Aliens franchise, hence why I'll buy it for £10/£15. :oops: :lol:

I'm glad I held off getting It, Really disappointed though.
I loved the co op In AVP, But lent It out after a couple of weeks and never got It back.

I'm like that with RDR Undead Nightmare & Dead Island. I'm surprised the HoPE girls don't have perforated hearing with all my screaming :oops:

Me too... I bought this from a shop in Maidstone about 9 years ago, saw it and I just had to have it. Its made from scrap bits of metal,bolts,screws, old motorbike chain etc. Picture dont do it justice really.
