    Seemingly how bad and off the final product is from the demo at an event, I'm with Sega & Gearbox on this one. The thing is, it was a "demo" NOT listed as a "final product."

    It is pretty ridiculous just how much negative press this game has gotten. And I was not joking when I posted about this a month or so back. While in a local GameStop shopping another customer walked up to the counter wanting to purchase a copy of this game and the manager of that location, who was behind the counter at the time, told the fellow that the game was so bad that he was compelled to not allow anyone to purchase it. I was shocked to say the least, for one thing what one person hates someone else is always bound to like, so this crazy manager declaring that a newly released game is so bad that no one could possibly like it is absolutely absurd.

    Wow, that's counter productive for a working position. Doubt he'd still be working if GameStop supervisors higher up caught wind of him. He could advise customers that it has gotten bad reviews and isn't so well but never to dictate what products can be sold. I'll eventually buy the latest aliens game, on the cheap though.
