Why all the hate?
28 September 2018 | by loudog-69437See all my reviews

I picked this game up having aliens being one of my favorite movies of all time. A few days later I read reviews that say this game was crap. And I was honestly confused. This game is great! I've played it with many friends who think it's great. So I really don't get all of the hate for this game. It has a decent story, great gameplay, is scary in some places and is one of those games where you look at your watch and you realize you just spent six hours of your day playing it. If a game can get me to do that, that's a good game. So don't take the bad reviews to heart. Please read this, play it yourself and see what you think.
