I love the story because the story explains a lot of stuff that you never knew happened in between the movies Aliens, and Alien 3! I was surprised to find out who the main marine was that I had to save from the mercenaries! It's a great game! Ignore the bad reviews! This game is awesome! Aliens: Colonial Marines has everything that I wanted from the Aliens Universe! Aliens: Colonial Marines is worth every penny!
I bought this in collectors edition form. I can say the statue was cool and the military style documents was awesome. As for the game play, ya the graphics were a little dated but it was a fun game to grind through. You never feel completely safe in the dark spots. The sounds from the motion tracker to the pulse rifle sound authentic. The AI could have been a little smarter but if you really want that you'll play it on hard. Overall a good romp through the world of Aliens.
