Found 4th Feb 2010
Anyone played this ? Have to say within 2 minutes I was bored stiff, it was a real struggle to play until the end, just seems soulless.

On the plus side, its not as bad as I was expecting it to be.

ah you just reminded me im off to download it, see if its worth keeping my order

Have they sorted out the matchmaking problems?
I managed to play one game and was impressed.
Looking forward to play Co-op and other modes though.

Ill give it another go later, didnt know how to use the predators weapons other than melee and invisibility, going to try the colonial marines next

I'm indifferent to it. It's good, better than I thought, but I can definitely see it becoming very dull and boring in no time at all. Like OP said, it seems soulless, especially if you compare it to something like Uncharted 2. I did a lot better than I thought too, I came second out of eight. Predators kept on sneaking up on me though, most of the time I didn't even see what killed me!

Me too, i expected to be able to use Predators guns, but i guess you have to upgrade or find them or something.

way too easy to kill the aliens, did they not watch the films before they made the game.

Was thinking that about the Predators.
One marine can kill a Pred in a second.
But an elite team of very highly skilled soldiers couldn't even kill one in the movie.
Should be more strategy involved to be able to kill one.

Definitely getting into it more now, the aliens are good if you sneak up on people and use the grab button, one on one they arent going to stand a chance

Yeah just tried to play the demo, still impossible to play a game on the PS3, surely they must know it's not just the PC.

iNSOMANiAC,

Thread unexpired. You may have expired by accident. If you wish it to be expired/locked, do let us know.

Thought it was quite good but not as good as I thought/hoped!
Will rent it n complete a campaign n try some othe multiplayer modes before I decide whether to buy or not!

Continually getting murdered from behind by the 'one button insta-kill' mechanic grows old really fast.

im guna rent first before deciding I think

the behind kills get so annoying, what doesnt make sense to me is when Im human ,the aliens do a trophy kill from the front

If you do them from the Alien perspective you will see the Aliens usually turn your head to make them look at them while they murder you insome horrific manner.
