It's really disappointing to see all the horrible reviews for it. I knew it was going to be rough but never expected it to be this bad.

After reading lots of the articles on the game it appears Gearbox at some point handed the game off to a company Timegate and that company scrapped all of Gearboxes work and started over. It slipped so many times that it ended up going back to Gearbox but it was in worse shape than when they handed it off. Sega was threatening legal action if it got held up again so Gearbox chose to fix the major issues and anything that would cause it to fail certification and ship it.

It's sad because they did a comparison of a demo they did a year or so ago to the released version and the game looked great and much more detailed. The version that shipped is watered down and a shell of what it could have been.

Just once I wish someone could make an Aliens game that lives up to the brand. :(

Mods: BBK Intake, BBK LT's and High Flow Cats, Corsa Cat-back exhaust, Hurst short throw shifter, SLP skip-shift eliminator.
