Aliens: Colonial Marines review (HonestGamers)

Mike Suskie writes: "I'll say this about Colonial Marines: had it been released a decade ago, it would have looked passable. The blocky modeling, muddy textures and embarrassing particle effects are all GameCube-quality, and the characters' complete lack of facial expressions would be acceptable in a world in which Half-Life 2 didn't come out over eight years ago." (Aliens: Colonial Marines, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 2/10

Had I known that Timegate Studios....the dev behind 'Section 8'...was ACTUALLY making this game (the SP campaign that is), and not Gearbox , I'd have never wasted 1 minute thinking of or anticipating this game. Gearbox really lost some respect and credibility with their fans on this one, for not being up-front about this. The low review scores I think are largely in line with that thinking, and a big "F U" to Randy Pitchford and Co. Plus, it really does look like an early-gen game, rather than a beautiful "swan song" for this gen of hardware, as it SHOULD have been.

Here's what I just can't figure out. How did the demo go from amazing looking to absolute ugly horrible looking in the retail game? Check the video out and see what I'm talking about.
