Gonna go the opposite of a lot of reviews here and give a thumbs up to ACM. That being said I did purchase this during holiday sale off Amazon for $1.99 and several months have passed since relase date. Gearbox has patched the game up to eliminate and improve some issues. I can understand people that pre ordered and spent $60 on this game, I would def be ♥♥♥♥ed and upset as it is nowhere near worth that money, but for 2 bucks it surely is.
Being a fan of the Alien franchise and growing up in the late 70's/early 80's I can appreciate the tone of this game and the sense of art style seems to be a throwback to that era. Graphics are terrible by todays standards and what we should be getting, however I thought the Alien models looked really well done and were true to Alien lore. The sound was failry bad to, mostly the dreadful voice work, the ambient sound and alien hisses were good though. Gameplay is really straight forward to the tune of run n gun, with a checkpoint save system.
I have certainly played a lot more trash garbage games than ACM and in my opinion should not be labeled as such, just a game that was falsely advertised and was way below potential on a galactic level - BUT if you can pick it up cheap its worth a run through, which I thought was fun and ok.
