Aliens was a beloved franchise that spanned two decades. But when it released a new game, the fans just wanted to kill it with a flamethrower.
The original gameplay demo promised some pretty nifty visuals and excitement, but as this comparison video shows, the final version didn’t pan out. Visuals were lackluster, and the enemy AI was laughable—certainly not a thrilling, edge-of-your-seat kind of experience.
Hyped fans were crushed, and rage ensued. The blame was passed around from developer to publisher, and the whole thing became a finger-pointing catastrophe with one clear consensus: The game was crap.
