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."

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.
