Opened this up last night and the statue is pretty cool looking. Not bad for $10. And Best Buy is offering $8 trade in for the game now, so for $2 it's worth it.

I bought one. I know everyone says it's crap but I hear the sound design is spot on.

Cool. I just ordered this for the statue (closer to $15 after shipping and taxes).

Me too. The game is terrible, but that's about the max I would pay for the loader figure. Will look cool on my collectables shelf.

This is the greatest game I've ever played!

OK. I only got it for the statue. It looks good. Well painted. I wouldn't have paid the original price for it, but I'm happy with it.

I'll probably play the game eventually, just to see it.

Looking through this thread reminded me about how when I was playing it during a rental, I shot an AI guy repeatedly until one of his legs popped off like the Black Knight in Holy Grail and he toppled over like a redwood. Timber!

Playing now... I might have thought this game was decent 12 years ago.

De-crapified! By someone who is probably a masochist with too much time on his hands. Still, I have had this on Steam for a while but might actually give it a shot now.

Damn, I was hoping the bump was for a remastered release

Replayed it by myself on Ultimate Badass difficulty. I figured it would get frustrating and I lower the difficulty, but no it wasn't that difficult. I remember back when game came out, I played it coop (don't remember difficulty) and was way way more difficult. It had more aliens, cause I remember the queen boss had her minions attacking us. By myself even on the hardest, there was no aliens at all trying to stop me, so I beat the queen easily and other difficult part and bosses were not to difficult to beat. Anyway yes I'm going to say it, I enjoyed the replay and liked it that I bought the Single player DLC. Played it twice, once on easiest then on ultimate badass. On to replay of Alien Isolation.
