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.
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.
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.
This game has not only been approved by the owners of the Alien franchise but also all the movie directors who worked with the game developers to make this a fully cannon game that fits directly in between movies 1 and 2. Most Alien games feel like video games but the developers of Aliens: Colonial Marines have worked very hard to make this game feel more like an interactive movie which explains why it has been delayed again and again for a few years. This game is worth the wait.
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
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
fully cannon into universe
This game has not only been approved by the owners of the franchise but also all the directors and they worked with game delevopers to make a fully cannon game which fits directly in between movies 2 and 3. Alot of the other alien games feel like a video game but the developers worked really hard to make this seem like an interactive movie which is why it has been delayed again and again. This game is worth the wait.
Blood, Gore, and Much Much More!!!!
This game is far better than anyone would expect. This game has an engaging campaign and has a very addictive, bloody, and fun multiplayer. This game mostly goes with the plot of the second alien movie, and shares similar weapons to it. In addition, you can customize characters and weapons. Its worth the money, if you don't mind gore (which is what makes the game great)!
I was so hyped when i first heard about this game, i had thought "Finally a true sequel to aliens." Put what i got in return was so much less. I didnt even have high hopes for it anyway, but it still was less than my expectations. Its almost like gearbox software took my dream of the perfect aliens sequel, my hype, AND my hope,set them on fire and threw them out the window.
