Aliens: Colonial Marines - Destructoid Review

Aliens: Colonial Marines famously considers itself the canonical sequel to Aliens, but the quality of its campaign reduces such a claim to little more than arrogant posturing, as this bumbling fan fiction dares compare itself to one of the most respected science fiction horror films of the 20th century. It barely deserves a comparison with Battlefield Earth.

Wow. As a huge Aliens fan, I really hoped this game would be worth my time. Such a goddamn shame.

Dylila1745d ago

well the game had to be rubbish if the devs were raving about the best verson being on the wii u. how can the superior version be on the worst console this generation with the weakest hardware power.

eight days til ps4 announcement. i cant wait for ps4

LightofDarkness1745d ago

Seriously, did the Wii U not invite you to its birthday party? How are you not banned yet?

Genuine-User1745d ago

Worst console?
What are you even talking about? You're gassing it.

Please, in the nicest way, just STFU. Your constant trolling is getting annoying.

On topic- a friggin shame about this. I really was looking forward to this. I remember the original Aliens fps on pc ages ago; it was absolutely brilliant.

Who remembers playing as the Aliens and starting off as a baby alien are they called necromorphs?) and eating your way out of a human host's stomach? That was brilliant.

Well I guess that's one less game I'll be buying this year. Still, I can't shake the feeling of disappointment. So much potential gone to waste.

Really ps fanboys reached a new high in stupidity.

No it's rubbish because Gearbox didn't make the campaign.

I'm currently playing the game now, i've never been a massive fan of aliens, but I thought I'd give it a go.. the multiplayer is a shambles and single player is dull as fuck. Nice work gearbox..

Makes me sad I have been waiting for a good Aliens game since Aliens Versus Predator back in the day(the good one that rebellion made)

That game was awesome. Despite being really fast paced and all it was still scary as hell and to this day I go back and play it every now and then and it holds up in everything except graphics. Honestly someone should just make a good mod for it to make it look more modern.

HarryMasonHerpderp1745d ago (Edited 1745d ago )

My exact words too.
I hope one day the Alien franchise gets the videogame it deserves instead of developers trying to cash in on the name. I waited a long time for this game and it looked amazing when it first started out and slowly got worse and worse. It looked more mediocre and like every other shooter out there with an Alien skin over it the closer it got to release.

I really enjoyed the AvP Marine campaign I dont get how with 5 years in development they couldnt 1up AvP! Which isnt even focused on the marines!

I was so hyped for this game and the way they advertised it I thought it would be epic. Its not only the reviews theres a general disdain for the game, sad really this game could have been something special...

It's Jim Streling. He does this crap all the time for attention. I'm not saying it's a good or bad game until I play it, but I'm sure as hell not trusting Sterling for a review.

I would still take this over cod, halo, and other recycled shit were always given on a yearly basis.
And besides, it's a liscensed product.

Games made after famous tv shows and movies rarely provide game of the year material.
It's just mainly for fans to play thru the worlds they know and love.

And if if gets other ppl to play it, that's good too.

MizTv1745d ago

yup the same people that give cod 9's and 10's every year are showing all there hate for this game. im going in a hour to get it and i cant fn wait

Septic1745d ago

How is Halo recycled?

RTheRebel1745d ago

playstation logo says it all

Ashunderfire861745d ago

Don't even compare this to Halo 4, a much better game than this atrocity. Alien Vs Predator 2010 was a much better game than this anyway. Randy Pitchford your suspended from your job for a week!!!! Now go in the corner and think about the atrocity you and your team made. You can do better than that man!!!
