The game is amazing at creating the atmosphere and all out fear. My only main issue with the game (mine is a Ps4) are the frame rate drops. Including every cutscene which makes them unwatchable at times. Its not always clear what just happened and takes me out of the moment.

What do you guys think and are you having the same issue with your copy?

I've been playing on PC and haven't even seen the alien yet. Jumped over to the survival mode and nearly crapped my pants I was so scared.

Playing on PC as well. I hadn't even seen the alien until they showed him in a cutscene about two or so hours in. But what's freaking me out is I can't nail the game mechanics yet. Like what attracts the alien, is it random, are there noises I should listen for, stuff like that. Still having fun, when I'm not having a panic attack haha.

I'm playing on the PS3 and I have seen some frame rate drops as well but it was only right after I saw the alien for the first time, it rushed these three or four guys who I was trying to sneak around and the game lagged like crazy but so far the cut scenes have been fine for me, they look amazing. I actually haven't seen the alien in two or three missions and I think that scares me more than running into it every couple minutes.

I've beat the game twice now and I am still enjoying my third playthrough. It is amazing! I just wish I sucked a bit more because I have one last achievement to unlock which is being killed by the alien 100 times. So far, I've died 10 times in all three playthroughs together, and I played the game on hard mode first.

I traded it back to gamestop after 3 days prior to the launch. I didn't really find anything scary in the game. I jumped a few times at random alien pop ups, but nothing that really made the game deserve the title of a horror game. Plus, when the alien would randomly pop out and kill me it wasn't scary, it was frustrating. The campaign was way too drag out, and the story was really boring. The only thing it had going for it was the fact that it was better than the last "Aliens" game, which we won't name.

When I played through the first missions I absolutely loved the game. I loved that there was finally a Penumbra-like game where the "main enemy" kills you instantly instead of just being able to run through the game. I was ready to put the game in my top 10 games list. Then the game gave the player way too many items to use to distract or even damage the alien and the game was no longer fun.

As for the frame rate, I did notice a lot of drops here and there on PS3. The game even became painful to play in a specific mission because the frame rate was around 10-15 and the game ran in slow-mo.
