Trivia

Publisher SEGA and developer Gearbox were sued due to false advertisement. Released demos and screenshots did not match the final game. Although Gearbox was eventually dropped from the suit, SEGA is still being sued for the false advertising. See more »

Goofs

The developers of the game used the original construction schematics to meticulously recreate the sets of the movie. However the cryogenic compartment on the Sulaco seen here is half the size of the original, and contains half as many cryopods. (Too few, in fact, for the crew of the ship!) When filming Aliens, only half of this set was actually designed and constructed, and a floor-to-ceiling mirror was used to show the "other half of the room" receding into the distance. The developers didn't account for this camera trick. See more »

(sigh)
26 May 2013 | by joeyjoey90See all my reviews

In 2007, Sega announced 2 Alien video games, one was a 3rd person tactical shooter and the other an FPS. Later, Sega canceled the development of the 3rd person shooter and continued development on the FPS. Sadly, they made the wrong choice. A:CM has seen many distractions, delays, and rumor had it that it was canceled, but in 2010 the development continued and eventually a gameplay preview came up. The game showed promise on how it closely resembles the moody atmosphere of Aliens. The game finally released on February 21, 2013, and... well. Its a complete waste of time! This game feels like its still in the beta phase and shouldv'e been released for the PS2. The A.I. is awful, they just run strait at you, completely unaware that you're shooting them! The story is BY GOD TERRIBLE! Weapons are useless and unbalanced! MP... just forget about it. There is absolutely no light in this game! Its a complete embarrassment to the Alien franchise and should be avoided at all times!
