NZGamer: "It’s a double-miss for Gearbox after the awful Duke Nukem Forever. Aliens: Colonial Marines might be best jettisoned into space alongside it."
Why am I not surprised? SEGA never seemed right to me as the Publisher 1st off, pushing this game out so far into 2013 was a HUGE error in judgement, striking while the iron was hot, taking advantage of hype that was built up last year with trailers etc meant it should have been released no later than Fall/Christmas 2012. The attention span of the casual gamer is very short, but despite the reviews, would have made a great Christmas gift in 2012 & sold more if release then. What a shame after such a long period between its original release date & now that this game still lacks polish, like what were they doing this whole time then ??? This game most likely will still appeal to core Alien fans but not much else, will be at bargain prices ($19.99 or lower) b4 you can blink on Amazon.com, Bad for Publisher/Developer Good for Consumer. I'll pick it up at the right price in a few months.
