I recommend picking up version 5 of TemplarGFX's Overhaul [moddb.com] as well. It improves on pretty much every aspect of the game, from the alien aggressiveness to the graphics to overall balance. Doesn't 100% fix the game, but it definitely is a huge improvement over the base game, and comes with an easy to use installer.

Co-op campaign with up to four players is fun. Solo campaign is not. AI so bad will walk over your cpu teammates, that are blasting them with a smart gun (not that they can hit or kill anything), to just spit acid on your face. Sounds are nostalgic, the tracker, pulse rifle fire, etc. Hidden Easter eggs. literally there is a hidden alien egg painted like an Easter egg, Hick's shotgun, Vasquez' SmartGun, Hudson's Pulse Rifle etc. If you can con your friends into a gaming evening doing a full campaign clear &/or achievement run, it is definitely well worth $2.79. If not? well then I am not going to tell you to add to your back log. Stasis Interrupted and Bug Hunt DLC only ones really worth it, but since all included it doesn't matter. RIP Bill Paxton

I know it's universally hated but for 2.79 it seems like it might be work a shot. I mean the entire campaign is supposedly coop so there's that.

Anyone have it and know how terrible it is?

I tried playing it years ago, and I quit after 15 or 20 minutes. It's terrible. The level design is uninspired, gameplay is boring, the writing is awful. I'm glad I didn't pay for it (I worked at a used bookstore where employees could check out books and games like a library). I'm not sure free would be a good deal for this game.

I'd say skip it and go get Aliens vs Predator instead.

Yeah probably the right idea. Too bad that game isn't 3 bucks. I'd do it. Just looking for something to mess around with and at this price, I'd buy a copy for a friend. Oh well. Thanks for the input.

In for one. The game was never what was expected of it but for $2 and change it's a steal. Definitely worth it for an occasional play - especially if you're in the Aliens nostalgia mood.

Props to Kraken3dfx! Just looking into it and looks awesome. Didn't know about it.

Thanks.
