Well it's out and i've been playing it and despite every review i've read it's pretty decent.
It's not ground breaking, it's not original ( how can it be, it's a follow on from a film ffs) and it's not pushing the boundries. What it is, is a competent enough FPS that seems to be LESS buggy than it's console counterparts (/yay/).
I've not done much online but from what i have played it seems ok, generally its 4v4 or 5v5 with half playing USCM and the others Aliens. There is Co-op but i've not tried it yet.

In a nut shell - if your a fan of the franchise and you enjoyed the previous games - then you'll enjoy this. Granted there's no Predator - but that's just a plus imo.

On the Fishy 'Victory' scale, i give it 7 out of 10 fists.

I had been keeping an eye on this pre release being a fan of the films myself (that and PC Gamer did a spread on it).

Going by the last attempts at Alien games I'm waiting for some solid reviews, not that I have any cash to pick it up atm lol.

Impressive 'fist' score though. Cool

On the subject of Aliens, seems KF is cashing in too.

Killing Floor: Aliens mod lets your friends hear you scream

We’ve now faced so many zombie apocalypses that it’s amazing the shambling menace can elicit even the mildest increase in heartbeat. So while Killing Floor remains an enjoyable co-op FPS, any change to its morbid monsters is welcome. Especially when that change is in the form of in the form of H.R. Giger’s face-smothering, acid-dripping, chest-bursting beasties.

That’s what you get in Killing Floor: Aliens, an extensive mod that swaps out the game’s setting, weapons and, most importantly, enemies for those from James Cameron’s action sequel. Nearly two years in development, the mod’s team say of the project, “AKF is one of the most comprehensive mods to date released for Killing Floor. The aim of this mod was to bring the feel and scope of James Cameron’s Aliens to Killing Floor while in one hand remaining true to the franchise and in the other ensuring that it still retains the feel of Killing Floor.”

There’s a whole zoo full of Xenomorphs, from the tiny facehuggers to the giant Alien Queen, along with new weapons, maps and perks. You also get a full roster of characters from the movie – including Ripley – who the mod’s makers claim now play and sound like their cinematic counterparts.

Download and installation instructions are available from the mod’s website, or you can go here and install through the Steam Workshop.
