The Gaming Vault Hands-On: Aliens Colonial Marines PC

Early on, the lay of the land in regards to the single-player campaign for Aliens: Colonial Marines became all too painfully clear. Seemingly destined to be a set-piece driven affair based on a popular IP that while likely not skipping out on the atmospherics, does very little else to meaningfully add to the genre, it doesn’t stand to deliver much in the way of fresh surprises.

The unlikely shattering of expectations for that portion of the game will have to wait sadly, as the playable code on offer at the Eurogamer Expo was for the team deathmatch multiplayer game mode, which while not staggeringly original or inspired, nevertheless throws in a few welcome wrinkles to what is otherwise a well-trodden formula.
