WC: They say originality in gaming is dead, and judging by the slew of sequels and reboots coming in 2013, it’s hard to argue otherwise. But who said it has to be a bad thing? One of the more surprising titles that falls into this category is Sega’s Aliens: Colonial Marines.
Taking place 4 months after the events in James Cameron’s excellent sequel Aliens, a new group of marines return to LV-426 in search of Ellen Ripley and her team. Developer Gearbox has the unenviable task of not just pleasing fans of the Alien franchise, but hardcore first person shooter gamers too. The big question is – can they succeed?
