Aliens: Colonial Marines
better than people say
at first I was also a little fond of this game as other people were until I went to a friends house and played, it was a good experience with two players , its a pretty good game not as bad as people are saying it is, people are really brining this game down with their words when really its a good game. for me this was a great game
AI = Non-Existent
The AI in this game is very bad. Aliens just run straight at you and give you plenty of time to kill them. This game is a breeze even at the hardest difficulty. STAY AWAY AT ALL COST
This is SO MUCH Better than Black Ops 2!!!! :)
This blows black ops 2 off the MAP!!! The movies were awesome enough. The Movies ALONE blew Black ops 2 out of the water, but THIS.... This OBLITERATED BO2 off the FACE OF THE EARTH!!!!!!!!
Better Than Expected
Ok so first off impressions for this were not really good and then i was suprised i rented it for 2.17 from red box and people said there were bugs and ive only found 2! 1 in campaign and 1 in multiplayer but anyway campaign is good and multiplayer is what made this game great!
I had hoped after hearing the interviews we would be treated back to the original two alien movies in suspense and atomosphere. Instead I got one really solid level where I felt suspense and and a sense of urgency, then a lot of poor fps from there on out. I would have rated the game at a 5 but the story line fell short way short, the boss fights were awful, you fight humans more than xenomorphs, and it there was nothing really innovative about the game. The dialog sounded like a poorly written fan fic. I would not suggested getting this game unless it is under 15 and even then I would look to see if something better was around.
Personally have been a fan of Aliens and Aliens vs Predator, but this game has amazing audio and graphics, and makes you jump a bit. the game play is great and i recommend everyone try it at least once.
This game my not have the best graphics. But the multiplayer is awesome. I really recommend this game because of the unique gameplay. all fps games are more or less the same thats what i enjoy about this game you can do more than shoot guns.
A wasted opportunity
For one of the most recognizable franchises in film and pop culture history, you would think a stellar game would be made. How i was mistaken. Hyped up as a dark, squad based survival horror game ended up as a poor shooter with no squad controls, poor AI, and bland, forgettable characters. The campaign can be finished without much difficulty in less than 5 hours, which is typically fine for a shooter because Multiplayer makes up for it. Not in this case, with stiff controls, forgettable maps, and bad spawns, the multiplayer is as aggravating as it is heartbreaking. Since it's release in Feb. I would have hoped the recent updates would have addressed these issues, but have done nothing to make this more than a rental, at best. Very disappointing, and can say i won't waste money on the DLC
very good game based on the movies!!!
aliens:colonial marines is actually a very good game.it might not be a GOTY, but it is still an action packed,fps experience.this game is pretty much like the movies,including planet LV-426 where you and your fellow marines must stop an xeno alien infestation.everywhere you go,there are aliens;climbing up the walls,crawling through vents,running at you,etc.they are pretty fast,so aim and shoot quickly and acuratley so you don't get killed so fast.overall great aliens game.
buggy terrible game that should not be played
this games is awful in the sense its buggy and the boring gameplay makes it suffer. this is way too expensive for any gamer and should be avoided at all costs period
