Great review Steve, I wasn't remotely interested in the game anyway but still good to know not to touch it.

I agree with Minty the review was very good Steve, it was kind of you to give the game a high enough score that each of the development studios involved would get a claim to one point of the review score :P

Review round-up seems the same across most websites. The Guardian gives it 4/5 but the majority are agreeing with VG. Shame really, I would have liked to have seen this come out great, even if I wasn't planning on buying it.

This was always going to be a poor game. I'm surprised that anybody expected it not to be. Not once during pre-release media-hype did it look any good. Don't be fooled by a franchise. IP's that have been specifically built for videogame platforms will usually be better than trying to shoe-horn existing franchises created for a different medium's into an interactive game environment.

Want to play a cool alien game? Get Dead Space, Halo, Metroid, Half Life 2, etc.. They're ALL great alien games.
