I have not had the chance to play it much honestly, being a student and working part time. All I've done so far is beat both of the DLCs and then played up to the point in the story where you first have to deal with the androids, the end of which I spent trying to sprint by them to get to a save point.

It's a tense game and I enjoy the gameplay based off of what I've experienced so far, but I don't really feel like I'm in the meat of the story yet.

On the constant dying: The first time I put the game in I played Crew Expendable and died 2 or 3 times in 10 minutes or so. Then I realized there weren't any save points. I loved every second of it.

The whole section in the vents when Lambert starts saying "It's coming towards you" I was so on edge. Really good fun.

The gameplay during that part is actually really well thought out and tense. The vents are a little basic looking, but it works. When you hear that thing in there, and Lambert's voice. They did a good job on that part. Maybe not so much the beginning or the ending.

I'm a little baffled at the reviews of two big magazines in my country. While i was sure it would be a safe 80%, one of them even gave it only 69%.

The Alien would be too unfair, bullets can't hurt it and so on. I don't know, maybe it's because i'm a fan, only played it on medium or they just suck at stealth games, but my frustration always stayed at minimum.
Also there were complaints about androids noticing you, though they turned their backs on you. Never happened to me. Either their test version was flawed yet, or they didn't even notice that they have to sneak - and not to walk. 
Oh well...  ???

edit:
Oh, the other one turned it from 73% to 80% now.
The reviewer admitted that he took a wrong approach on the game, after listening to reader comments and his workmates.
I kinda thought as much. Good for him that he noticed it's not CoD and it's suddenly more fun lol

 Are there any reviews of the game on the X360 or PS3?
