Aliens: Colonial Marines Collector's Edition
Its a month and two days away!! :)
I've been waiting and now its almost here the one game I have waited for since it got announced last year. Now its a month and two days away in counting and i will get this game no matter what the cost. god so help me.
Great Idea Executed Poorly
It's not as bad as many of the reviews I've read say it is, but it's a far cry from what we were promised it would be. I had rose colored glasses on when I played through this game the first time and loved it. Mostly for the multiplayer but the sound goes a long way to pull you into the story.
After my second play through I can tell you it's really not worth it unless you've got nothing else to play and are a huge fan of the Alien franchise, like myself.
Also, you should be aware that the DLC included with this special edition version of Colonial Marines expired on 2.12.14. So if you want like half the things offered in the description here get prepared to be disappointed.
Looks amazing! I love all of the movies and the second is one my most loved. its awsome that you get four characters from aliens and the ball buster. plus Ripleys flamethrower is awsome. cannot wait!
I reserved and bought this game when it launched with a few of my friends. We did the co-op play through and it was tedious to say the least. In the end we hunkered down and finished it; not because it was such a good game that we just couldn't wait to see the ending but because we had already spent the money and wanted to finish it up so we could trade it in. The few redeeming qualities were found mostly in the multi player which wasn't the best but had some fun aspects to it. Graphics: were terrible I found them comparable to a first generation Xbox or ps1 game. Some graphics were decent from a distance but when you got up close, it took a while for the details to load and when they finally did, you were left with the thought of "that's it?" Often times it was comical. I'd be looking at one of my team mates and would notice that his gun had disappeared however the character would still appear as if he was holding a gun. Now during a fire fight, still no gun but the muzzle flash could be seen emanating from the characters crotchular region. I had a good laugh about that. I liked the aspects that tied into the movie. However, the storyline as a whole was uninteresting and ill conceived. I cared pretty much nothing for the characters involved. Dialog was pretty lame also. Ending was a major disappointment but the final line in the game has been adopted into my and my group of friend's dialog anytime we see and want to express disappointment or a sarcastic appreciation for something. I recall reading a post release review of this game in a volume of Game Informer and it made me laugh so hard I near fell out of my chair. The best part of the review was that it was so spot on. This game is unfortunately the by product of a company that decided to pull resources from its development for focus on other games (Borderlands) and threw it out on the market in an as-is status. There are so many things wrong with this game, a book could be written. This game had the potential to be a really good game but the development team dropped the ball and did gamers and fans of the Alien franchise an enormous disservice. Now with me being a fan of the Alien franchise, I couldn't pass up picking up a copy of the collectors edition for $10. Getting the statue and the extra stuff makes it worth it. "Its got it, its got it all." Just don't expect to get much out of the game itself.
I'll start by saying anyone who gave this a high score is a "casual" with low standards in gaming. Poor graphics, mediocre gameplay, completely mindless AI, etc... Might as well say what they did right... NOTHING!!! It lacked imagination, lacked replayabilty since it was nothing but a hallway shooter...I'm not going to waste any more of my time of this game even to write this... Took it back with in 48hrs, never done that with any other game. There is a reason the price on this game has gone down so quickly.
GET COLLECTORS ADDITION
If your an aliens fan like I am then there is no other satisfaction in this game unless you get the collectors addition this will be ssssooo awesome!!!!!!!:)
i really enjoy this game!
yes i bet everyone has seen reviews that this game has got and yes they're really bad but it's really not that bad of a game. i am a huge fan of the aliens movie and this game reminds me of it, which is a really good feeling . i played the campaign and yes the graphics could be a ton better but there not that bad. multiplayer is a lot of fun especially when you get too play as the humans!! i do recommend this game to any aliens fan or if you love sci fi shooters
This looks amazing!
Oh I gots to have this. Man the statue looks freaking awesome. Been waiting for this game a long long long time, glad to see it's finally coming out, even if it is next year.
the other alien games that where made by sega where not good at all and when i saw the trailer for this i got realllllly excited for this game because the 2nd movie is one of my favorite all time movies and you also get some of the people from the 2nd movie as dlc with the collector's edition and that's badass!! i recommend getting the CE for anyone who love the series...i pre ordered this right after E3
Aliens Colonial Marines is good for its fans.
I am a big Alien fan, I have been waiting for a long time for Gearbox to release this title. I purchased the collectors edition all its extra content I was vary pleased with. The figure is displayed on my dresser, when I played the game I liked the start and everything but I do think they could have done a little better on the graphics. The multiplayer for me is a little difficult it make take a while for me to get use to its online gameplay. Overall I say its a good game I would only recommend to people who are alien fans if not you may be disappointed.
