I have to be honest here, but there's just no way I can take the storyline of this game at all seriously; it contradicts too much. I mean, come on, Hadley's Hope is still standing after being at ground zero of a thermonuclear explosion? No freaking way. I can just about accept that the Jockey Derelict might have survived, but the colony? Absolutely not, that's just insane.
If Weyland-Yutani personnel were already onboard the Sulaco when it was passing near Fiorina 161 and the EEV containing Ripley, Newt and Bishop was launched, why did it take the Company so long to send a ship there to pick up Ripley?
And then there's Hicks' apparent survival. Are we really expected to believe that it wasn't really his corpse in the EEV in Alien3; that it was some other guy who coincidentally had the same injuries as Hicks, and was conveniently placed inside Hicks' hypersleep chamber by the Company when they boarded the Sulaco? This ain't likely.
