Aliens: Colonial Marines
This game has been getting terrible reviews honestly I think the game is awesome, I have been a huge "Aliens" fan since I watched the movie and I think they nailed it. Some criticized the A.I just charging you and taking hits but the warrior aliens are supposed to do that actually, if you read into the mythology that is their job, get close then just charge and overwhelm. Graphics could be better but they are not bad by any means.
Sound quality is amazing and perfect like the movie, gameplay is smooth and works great. If you are still skeptical don't get the game but if you are an "Aliens" fan get this game by any means necessary.
Can't Wait, Huge fan of the movie
I absolutely love the movie and I try to learn everything I can, It will be awesome to into the shoes of a Colonial Marine, got the Collector's Edition pre-ordered now just waiting.
i have high hopes for this game, even though aliens vs predator wasnt what i thought it was (though i still enjoy it from time to time) i think that if they work their butts off then i have confidence in them, also at this up coming E3 you can expect sega to release more trailers and maybe even some gameplay of this game, even though avp was a let down i think they can do very well with this game. so you should send feedback to sega and gearbox to boost their confedence.
Not a 60 dollar game by a country mile...
Sega and gear box have dropped the ball on this one guys, being an alien franchise fan this is a hurt to me and my wallet. First off the graphics are early Xbox 360 graphics, which by now is unacceptable. Second the choppy frame drop and bland game play is even more of an insult, a game that was in making since 2008 it should have been fantastic and made me feel like part of the movie with the suspense, horror, gore and overall alien awesomeness but sadly NO. Was it a surprise to me that gear box was going to pull off a lazy move, not really. We can see that they didn't even make the dlc for borderlands 2. This is why Gearbox have just taken a back seat with Capcom, EA in my book, you don't hire third party companies to do the work you do it yourself. To bring this review to a wrap, ladies and gentlemen this game is atrocious the online aspect is alright but that's the only part gear box devoted there so called time to. Save your money and go for something else you wont regret it.
5 Year Wait Over
The campaign starts off strong with tons of references from the movie but i feel its lacking the suspense, that being said you basically run around killing aliens and marines. Also the graphics aren't up to date with shooters like call of duty, with texture problems and bad mouth movements. it basically feels like duke nukem forever with xenos.
Rating: 7.5 out of 10
Multiplayer: Ok my favorite part..... This game has epic multiplayer i found myself playing more than 4 hours. With 5 game modes, 4 maps, and awesome customization for your characters. You can play as the marine or the infamous xeno morphs! Controlles can get very frustrating for the xenos but once you get the hang of it youll be a killing machine as for the marine the controlles are quite simple basic FPS point and shoot. A must for left for dead and dead space fans!

Side note the season pass will be $30 and include 4 dlcs that include story mode and multiplayer goodies
Really bad game
honestly i though this was going to be good but it really sucks, the sounds were great but the animation and the graphics are old school ive seen better games than this junk, the multi player is a bit worse, its choppy to even bring up the score screen and to even land a pounce, i went rite over the top of my enemy or the sides when i had a direct hit, you can even fly though the air on the open map multi player lvls its stupid. on single player when u die its not realistic as the marine and alien stare each other in the faces in the starter mission when u meet up with ur partner for the areas, you can even put it on (ulitmate badass) there hardest difficulty which is really not you can sit on butt though most of the areas cause half the time he doesnt even go down and when he gets back up its nearly instant stand up, the least they could of done was let an extensive beta mulitplayer demo to atleast see there flaws before the game was actully released, but thats my opinion.
This game doesnt receive the credit it deserves. While yes, this is not the game promised by Gearbox, it really is still an enjoyable experience. The story to me is engaging, however this does have A LOT of segments where you find yourself fighting other humans. The game probably shouldve been called Call of Aliens: Weyland Yutani, but having human enemies at times feels logical and is understandable. The AI isnt the best, but it gets the job done. The graphics are good, sound is great, and this game is definitely worth the $10
Solo calls out for marco, Co-op responds with polo
Now here's the thing with this game, the missions are stupid, especially the plot. The graphics are just decent, for a 2008 game. The sounds and voice acting are so-so, but for some reason the gameplay I don't find terrible, but somewhat good. Now here me out, this is a mediocre game, but the fun of shooting guns at glitching aliens and the upgrades along the way make the game genuinely stupid fun, just with more stupid than it needs. Of course it's more like a 4/10 alone, and a 6/10 with a friend, since co-op is the only reason I bought this game, not to mention I bought it for $5, which isn't too bad. If you're looking at it when it's on sale and you have a friend who has it or has the money to get it, get it with him and play it, otherwise, don't waste your time.
People don't understand
I know that the demo for this wasn't that great, but that was monthes ago and at the top of the screen it says, WORK IN PROGRESS. The game is not going to be sxactly like demo. That was Act 2 and probably at the very end of a mission. Only ONE, I repeat, ONE part of the game has been shown in the trailer and demo and people are already giving it grief about being "SCRIPTED" or "IT'S STUPID BECAUSE I SAID SO". You haters need to chill down. I think that it is going to be a gret game. And if you don't have gameinformer, it says that NEVER REVEALED STUFF about aliens will be in this. You will venture inside the wierd ship in the original alien and find out more info about the space jockey in Promethius. It is going to be a great game.
Could have been better
I wasn't very hyped for this game like many people were, but I got it and the game isn't bad but isn't good either. It does many things like sound and atmosphere right and it does many things like gameplay and story wrong. Overall, the game is just average and okay.
