Honestly.. that people actually pre-ordered this game let alone bought it after release is beyond me. All the available media before the release basically painted it on your monitor "This. Game. Will. SUCK!".

and yet it still made money


A lot of people who play games but aren't online everyday checking out everything about games...

I go fishing but I couldn't tell you what piece of kit is good value for money or trash. As long as it's got a hook at the right end I'm good.

It I were a layperson with a console, seeing an Alien game would be a no brainer for me, I'm a huge fan of the franchise. As an informed gamer who sees an AUD price tag of 79.99 (that's ~81 USD) and reads a couple of previews/reviews that say nothing good, the choice is easy to completely ignore it.
