It's very good. Just nothing like the film.

Agreed - I think Cameron's Aliens is closer in spirit to the source material  than the Verhoeven adaptation.

I remember it having a cool action opening but then it turned into a book about Rico preparing an exam or something.

I love the part when Rico introduces the power suits - it's a crying shame they didn't do them in the film.

It's very different and much more serious than the film as you've probably found out. I like the fact that there is more than one alien species involved and some are on our side

To be honest mate, I've just got up to the point where Zimm is instructing them on the usefullness of knife and hand to hand combat. It is toneally different though and I'm enjoying it.
