Aliens: Colonial Marines | The Game Scouts

Tin Salamunic: It’s 2013 and the current generation is coming to an end. By now, there is a certain level of polish we expect from AAA titles, particularly from a developer responsible for one of last year’s best shooters. Unfortunately, Aliens Colonial Marines fares a similar fate to Activision’s recent 007 Legends, a great license that’s marred by poor production values and watered down gameplay. As a fan of the franchise, you might appreciate the numerous movie references, but the game completely misses the mark in terms of atmosphere and tension. The run and gun approach doesn’t work here and the inclusion of co-op makes the embarrassingly short 5-6 hour journey even less exciting. (Aliens: Colonial Marines, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 4.5/10
