Unlocks in 1 hour for me now. Apparently if you have a G19 keyboard you can have the motion tracker showing on that, cool feature i think.

Wonder if im able too do that with my G15 v2.

Got it running on the triple screens I love it. Love the lighting, the motion tracker suspense and the game so far.

Why so many complaints I wonder? Aliens is my favorite movie and they geared this game towards the fans. Now I need to try it in 3D Surround lol

some people say that Aliens vs Predator 2010 was a better game.

This is the first Alien game ive played, Watched Prometheus, Alien & Aliens over the past few nights to refresh the memory because Colonial Marines carry's on directly from where Aliens left off.

Started the game in Ultimate bad ass mode, No HUD etc.

Don't get me wrong this game aint gonna break any records and yeah ill agree some of the texture are quite low res BUT the game runs really nice for a port, No major bugs yet that ive discovered, The lighting in the game is fantastic, Really adds to the atmosphere.

As ive said if your looking for GOTY then this probably wont win but i cant believe its getting such negative press when its actually a decent game imo ... From what i can work out it seems too be the console gamers that are "dissing" this game AND it seems that 80% of the people giving it bad press when they haven't actually played the game, They seem to be just going on information form somebody else.

All in all its a decent game and definitely aimed at the Alien/s franchise fans.

It is, but if you are a fan of the movies, especially Aliens you'll love this, the movie tie ins are for the most part pretty good. Although coming out the same time as Dead Space 3 wasn't a good idea. Dead Space 3 does horror better than this.

The nailed the motion tracker and the sounds too, that goes a long way in this game.

This looks nothing like the demo they showed. Seems they made the demo from scratch and it's nothing like this game.

First Duke Nukem and now this... If it wasn't for Borderlands, I'd say Gearbox is a terrible developer.

I'll wait for it to hit $10 this summer.

See the thing is gearbox took the game on while they where in the middle of other projects, they gave ACM to a smaller Dev company and this other company made most of the game while gearbox made the demo video we all seen. Gearbox have stated they knew the game was gonna get bad reviews but had to release the game the way it was because Sega where threatening with law suits due too gearbox pushing the title back 3 times already in the past.

When gearbox got too test the game they where about to release they where apparently fuming with what the other Dev company had done with the game.
