Aliens: Colonial Marines
this game is really bad and wont recommend it
i'm a big fan of the Aliens and Marines and all i gotta say is that this game , i'm very dissappointed in it. the creators should've takin longer to make it better. i mean everything on it needed more work on it. AVP is better than this game. the game is sellin for 39.99 well should be more like 10.00 or less thats all that game is about worth.
If thisgame were a movie the MPAA rating would be.
R- very strong bloody and gory violence throughout, explicit language, very bloody intense sequences of disturbing violence, some viewers might find violence to be too much, viewer and parent discresion is strongly advised
I thought this would be like Aliens vs. Predator, which was a pretty good game, but it failed to even measure up to it. The aliens theme seems a little tired, so you have to cut this version some slack. The graphics were okay, but the characters didn't seem that believable, and the sound effects were somewhat substandard. The most frustrating part was when the game glitched and wouldn't let me do a basic command to move forward in the plot. The same error continued to pop up, even after restarting the last checkpoint a couple times. Needless to say, I never got to finish the game.
I wish that the game creators had made an alien character to play. That would have made up for some of this game's issues. My advice is save your money for a better Aliens game in the future, or get Aliens vs Predator.
Not great but not bad
ok this game is getting a lot of hate and I understand its a disappointment, over all the game isn't bad as its being made out to be, yes it was waaay delayed and it was over hyped but what game isn't over hyped, I found it to be very challenging and desent shooter, its not perfect but its not horrible, im enjoying it, wish multiplayer was better though
what have you done to aliens!
Aliens is 1 of my favorite movies. then Gearbox and Sega had to screw it up. The graphics could power a calculator. The guns suck and the upgrades do not help. The sound in this game is great the aliens sound like they did in the movies, they totally nailed the pulse rifle. Oh yeah this game has the WORST ENDING EVER!!!!!!!!. If you are a really really big fan of aliens i'm sorry to say but this game is really bad!!!!!
A God Awful Disappointment
This game is awful. Let me start with the story. The characters aren't likable and you never learn anything about them. Once you finish the game you won't be able to describe any of the characters. The ending is so terrible it makes me mad just to think about it. i wouldn't even consider it an ending. The graphics are even worse. I would literally walk in to a room and stare at the floor for a minute waiting for it to texturize. The graphics themselves look like an early PS2 game. The combat also sucks. The guns felt like be be guns and whenever I shot something I felt like I was shooting air. You can't shoot dead bodies or face huggers off of people like in AvP 3. The only emotion I felt while playing was disappointment and anger. There was never a part that made me scared. You barely even feel like you're fighting aliens and you fight Wey-yu mercenaries for like three fourths of the game. The xenomorphs are brain dead and don't go on the walls or ceiling at all! They just walk right up to you. I hate this game and Gearbox Software. They made so many promises and said how awesome the game would be. I think that if any other studio made this game besides gearbox it would have been good. This game is an insult to the movie. This is easily the worst game I have ever played.
The most amazing perfect alien game EVER!!!
aliens is the perfect game, online, long challenging campaign, and co-op, who in the right mind could say no to that? it is so amazing, i would recomemd it to ANYONE, ignore all the hating reviews this game is incredible! i love it, perfect price, perfect game, perfection is written all over this video game
This game looks real real good and i would play until the end of the game and then keep playing it!!
pretty good game
This game is a great game. The graphics are ok but not bad. The aliens aren't scary and the weyland yutani corporation soldiers are a pain.They drain your health easily.I don't like the health system three bars seperated. If your bar is not completely empty it can regenerate. But when a bar is completely empty you have to waste your time looking for a health pack. Other than that its a good game:)
love this game i have beaten it on all difficultys and i love the mulitplayer i love playing as hicks in multiplayer.
