It has been awhile since I read the second Aliens, but in the book I believe that Burke had all the info from the Nostromo, but had hidden it to turn a profit. How else would Burke of known to send them, and the right place on LV-426. I will give it a try..I have played them all from the first one on the PS1...it will be interesting. Its a first only having one enemy, and having to rely smarts rather than fire power in this type of game. I am looking forward to it.
