Aliens: Colonial Marines Review | says :"Nothing is really working fine in this game: olds visuals to too classic gameplay, silly IA and weird bugs, bad multiplayer and predictable confusion story, everything seem wrong. Hopefully, some points succeed to make this game an horrible nightmare, like the futuristic universe, lots movies references or the gameplay mecanisms of Xenomoprhes on line. To sum up, it's hard to advise this repetitive shooter game, and so boring, except if you are a big fan of the Alien's saga and want to lear more about the series and ready to go through hours of lethargy. For the others, the experience risk to let you stone-faced, or totaly deceive you."

See I had a bad feeling the game was going to come out bad... and everyone flamed me for even suggesting that could happen...

It's a shame too because the Alien franchise would have been an awesome game, if it was in the hands of a quality developer...

well looks like another movie turned video game bits the dust...

It's a shame too, because it didn't look that bad..
First 20 minutes on PS3 -

Ah yes. I remember rebellions avp on the pc. That was amazing all those years ago. Took me days of scrubbing to get the brown out of my pants.

Blacktric2136d ago (Edited 2136d ago )

I watched the part 6 of a walkthrough on YouTube and apparently, they tried to create a scene where you're practically naked (no guns or motion sensor) and are trying to run away from a xeno that's chasing you like the way Queen chased Newt through the small crawlspace under the floor in Aliens. But the thing is, this one just randomly pops out of a hole or destroys a part of the wall, comes out, screeches and then gets back in without doing anything, which immediately killed the feeling of authenticity for me. I mean if it was happening in the movie, the guy would've got ripped to shreds since xenos don't play with their preys that long but just wait for the perfect opportunity to strike. They should've just done what Monolith did with Aliens vs. Predator 2 and used the environmental elements to scare you off (like a small pipe suddenly bursting during a tense moment, etc.). Also the introduction of new Alien types feel tacked on at best. At first it was fine to see new additions like the rammer but the "blind sewer Alien" they introduced with the full game is just pathetic.

Irishguy952135d ago

Yes it does look bad, you can watch a gameplay video and tell it sucks. It also suffers from 'full retard' on all the Ai in the game

It's not that short, there are 5 segments, but the link takes you right to the 5th and last one, which is the conclusion.
Skip the first one which is a short intro, but read 2, 3 and 4 which add some interesting info.

I really hope these reviewers are just being harsh and the game isn't as bad as they say. I've been waiting for it since it was first announced. I love the movies so if this disappoints i will have to light the torch and pull out the pitchfork on Gearbox.

Nitrowolf22136d ago

I am joining you to. To long have I defended Gearbox for the poor performance of Duke Nukem, since they were pratically just handed the game as it was. Seems that this may be right up there with it. Gonna play myself, been waiting to long.

jimbobwahey2136d ago

This was my most anticipated game of 2013 and I can honestly say it is absolutely terrible. I know people are being overly cautious thinking "The reviewers are being too harsh!" but honestly, it's an absolutely terrible game in every single way.

I'm beyond disappointed.

zmack2136d ago

I am with you there as well Nitro and first. I have been waiting for this game for quite sometime. I am a huge fan of the alien universe and I have seen every movie including that pseudo prequel: Prometheus and my favorite movie of the franchise is Aliens.

So, of course I am going to check out what's what for myself, but there is this unsettling feeling that Gearbox may have done something like Duke Nukem again. Well, I'll get my copy sometime later this week and hopefully I will have some fun with the game and a few of my friends *crosses fingers*

finbars752135d ago

I have been waiting to long myself and really wanted this game but once I had seen the first two chapters on youtube I will pass.I cant believe how bad the aliens looked and how they just jump down and pretty much let you shoot them withought any movement.I love this franchise but my god Gearbox needs to stop taking over games that are shit and stamping there name on it to sell it or at least take some time and work on the game more.Now they destroyed Dukenukem and aliens.

omi25p2136d ago (Edited 2136d ago )

From what ive seen of the game play. It looks awful, Just watch the first 20 minutes.

Terrible voice acting, game play and the first alien encounter is just dreadfully anticlimactic.

The worst part is for most of the game you are fighting humans.

HarryMasonHerpderp2136d ago

It seems like they have ticked the box to every cliche in modern shooters at the moment and then put an Alien skin over it and then did a poor job in general.
The Alien franchise deserves better than this and I don't understand why it's so hard to make a good Alien game. I'm a huge fan of the movies and it looks as though this game will just be another disappointment.

Nitrowolf22136d ago

I just got my review copy in the mail, it's bad man. WTF, not buying another Gearbox game after this.

first1NFANTRY> this is the only test i red, but previous previews were very bad, i'm think that Gearbox do a bad game...

first1NFANTRY2136d ago (Edited 2136d ago )

hate to admit it but you may be right my friend. sigh...another one bits the dust

EvilGost2136d ago

hope than one day, another studio will create a game as good than the movies ;)

stubee342136d ago

I finished the game this morning (ps3) and i can confirm this game is a massive letdown i was really looking forward to it being a huge aliens fan.The story is a joke,the AI is pathetic,it has more bugs than EDF:Insect Armageddon! The graphics are extremely average looking only the sound and lighting are any good.You can walk straight through your squad mates which is just bizarre,aliens are not scary all they line up in front of you and pop like balloons,the weapons sound good but have no real "punch" or impact to them.The ending is a mess.
