Trivia

The story of the game is somewhat based off of the original concept story of Alien³ (1992) where Cpl. Hicks and another team of Colonial Marines discover a top secret research facility by Weyland-Yutani that is focused on using the Aliens as Bio-Weapons. See more »

Goofs

Captain Cruz continually refers to himself as "Sephora Actual," and later "Sulaco Actual," however this is incorrect for a number of reasons. Commanders are referred to by their unit's designation followed by the numeral 6. The company he is in command of seems to be designated "Rhino," so CPT Cruz should be "Rhino 6." Assuming there is no Navy crew manning the ship and Captain Cruz is the commanding officer of this ship as well as the company, he could conceivably be "Sephora 6." The term "actual" is only used in radio communication to inform the other end that the person speaking is that person, and not a radio operator relaying the message. Captain Cruz would refer to himself as "6 Actual," while his radio operator would refer to himself as "6 Romeo." See more »

Quotes

Cpt. Jeremy Cruz: Clp. Winter, I'm sending in Rhino 2-1 to reinforce 2-3. How you feeling kid?
Cpl. Christopher Winter: I'm feeling good, Captain. But I'm worried about 2-3
Cpt. Jeremy Cruz: That's good, because I'm sending you in to catch up with Rhino 2-1 so you can get the flight recorder and see who cause this.
Cpl. Christopher Winter: Sir, what happened in there?
Cpt. Jeremy Cruz: We shipped them to bed.

Cpt. Jeremy Cruz: Attention chicks and dicks of the USS Sephora, as of right this second Rhino 2-1 and Rhino 2-3 are fighting to get hold of of the situation we're in. We don't ...

I'll be brief...
13 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Once upon a time the awesome Alien franchise was born... When i switched on my Xbox 360 earlier this week and played this game i quickly realised that the franchise, specifically in respect of video gaming, is dead and buried. The graphics are too sharp yet ill detailed and not at all Alien-esque... The titles are also juvenile attempts at mimicking the movies and are awful. The levels belong on an original xbox or PS2 release and are dreary, tiresome, repetitive and ill conceived. The interface isn't innovative in any way and must have been designed on the back of the blank cheque that Sega wrote Gearbox to bring this high school project to fruition.

I've been playing video games for 30 years and not ever has a publisher spent so much dollar on promotion for such a bland, weightless, empty shell of a concept that has not materialised into any semblance of a 21st century hi-def title.

In conclusion its like playing a several year old platinum title that has no place being in the modern era of video gaming. A poor poor title that'll keep you happy (in anticipation only) for about 10 minutes (if you're a die-hard Alien fan) before the disc is on its way to trade in for store credit.

What were 20th Century Fox thinking?! PS. Give the trailer director credit for clever editing, tricking us all into believing that we were actually buying something of substance.
