Truly awful controls, plus the absolute worst save-game system ever devised
16 June 2019 | by robertmaybethSee all my reviews

...and by that I mean, it doesn't. Save that is. Everything's copascetic when you start playing fdor a while, until you go to quit game and find out, you can't. No, you can't quit the game, because it won't let you. I'm not kidding. It's impossible to do a normal save and quit, or even to just quit, you have to restart your computer to stop playing. If you can find a work-around for that, you might have fun playing this game - I searched seemingly everywhere, couldn't find any mod or code that would allow me to quit and just gave up.

I downloaded the steam updates later, thinking somebody MUST have fixed the save system by now, with the update...? Only to find out nope, that glitch is still there. Since this game's a steaming heap of dung, a better choice for an Alien-based game is "Alien Vs Predator (2010), this one lets you play as Alien, Predator or Marine (plus map packs). Also the first "AVP" game from 2000, is very fun too, if you can get it to play on your computer. ANY Alien game but this one!
