Aliens: Colonial Marines (PC), Review | Den of Geek US

We’ve all been looking forward to Aliens: Colonial Marines. After all, it’s based on one of the best sci-fi series of all time, Ridley Scott’s Alien. But, does Sega make a game that lives up to high expectations, or should Aliens: Colonial Marines be lost in space? (Aliens: Colonial Marines, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 2.1/10

It'll be interesting to see what kind of score Game Informer gives this game, since they gave Dead Space 3 a near perfect score.

I never buy games that score a 2 or under, but this baby got a 2.1 so I can get a copy now. Phew!
MysticStrummer  +   615d ago
lol Close one. What I don't understand are the multiple previews in the last few months that made the game look like a 7 at the very worst. Hell the two hour IGN live stream from a week ago had me pretty excited. Online and off it looked like, if not a masterpiece of innovative gaming, at least a solid Aliens game. Just another instance where gaming journalism let us down, because I'm sure people pre-ordered based on those positive previews.

Im not surprised at all. Gearbox is constantly overrated.

At last. Thank you!

Nope they are not overrated,
MysticStrummer  +   615d ago
Constantly? No, but they have put their name on some less than stellar titles whether they actually made the games or not.
Upstate8987  +   615d ago
game informer gave it a 4.0 :-/

Yes, folks, it really is that bad.
DivineAssault  +   615d ago
wow, so many mixed reviews on this game.. Gearbox is great when it comes to borderlands so how can this game suck so bad??? The highest review ive seen from EGMNOW gave it a 9/10 so they mustve got paid off cuz i dont see any other reviews even close to that

Probably because Gearbox makes Borderlands themselves but they outsourced this game to somebody else.

They must have been really blind at how horrible the graphics were. Sometimes they dont even load properly. Not to mention teleporting marines, aliens clipping through walls, walking through walls, random crashes, doors not opening until you reload the game, etc.

I didnt think the graphics were any worse than AC3 or Dishonored....the character models in those games are horrendous.
ThanatosDMC  +   614d ago
That's the problem. I played it on the PC. Max settings.

I have a really hard time taking this "review" seriously. It is full of spelling errors and terrible grammar.

Shouldn't you at least have to pass High School level English class before you can write professional game reviews?

What a joke.

Hey buddy, its Wookie.

Spelling errors? Do tell, as I am the one who wrote the review.
