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 »

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.

Better Than You'd Expect
18 September 2015 | by jackbradlywilsonSee all my reviews

Despite the negative reviews, this game is actually pretty good and worth playing if your a fan of the Alien movies. It takes place just after Aliens (the second movie) but has a new set of characters on a different mission, however Hicks and Bishop from the second movie both appear as supporting characters and they are both voiced by the actors that play them in the movie (Michael Biehn and Lance Henriksen) which is pretty awesome. The plot is above average, but it is really just there so that the action has reason to play out. The action is great however and the gameplay and controls are good (despite what some users have said about messed up controls). The aliens in the game are well done and there are a good variety of them. The graphics are good but they could easily have come from a game made ten years ago. On the downside, there are one or two glitches every so often (however they don't prevent you from moving forward in the game) and sometimes the AI is a little buggy and it occasionally affects the gameplay in a negative way. Also the game just suddenly comes to a halt and just ends unexpectedly, in a weak and uninteresting way and it may make you angry. Overall, I would recommend this game because, despite its flaws, it is a lot of fun and the multiplayer is well thought out and very enjoyable. 6.5/10. (Additionally, the game does a good job of being scary; particularly when you get to use the Alien radar machine which detects Aliens closing in on you and makes a beeping noise which gets faster and faster the closer they get).
