Five Reasons Why Aliens vs. Predator (2010) Beats Colonial Marines

Eskimo Press: "Aliens: Colonial Marines has managed to piss of scores of people. People are shaking their pitchforks at Gearbox Studios, and rightly so. That definitive Aliens experience that we've all been promised and have been anxiously waiting for never came. There is, however, an alternative and—even though it pains me to say this, it's called Aliens vs. Predator." (Aliens vs. Predator, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Gearbox, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

It's an inconvenient truth. Aliens vs Predator is much closer to being a finished product... Aliens: Colonial Marines is sadly just a disaster.

Gearbox should have just called upon Rebellion Studios to develop Colonial Marines. Sure they would have done better the second time around.

Like choosing the lesser of two evils. Haha. I remember the original on PC was super fun. Played in on 56k dialup and everything. On a bit of a side note, I kind of have a feeling that Terminal Reality's "The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct" is going to end up in the same pile as Colonial Marines. But I hope not. =/

I don't think anyone thinks otherwise. Activision is simply trying to cash in on the show and nothing more with TWD

Definitely choosing lesser of two evils. If done probably, an Aliens first person shooter game could trump most other shooters.

All they had to do is remake AVP 2010 in HD dirext X11 and they would have brought the house down!! They tried instead to reinvent the wheel and it fell off!

AVP 2010 was actually a great little title, I found the multiplayer fun and addictive and fairly skill based.

It actually innovated unlike colonial marines with a unique melee system and a fairly gratifying way to finish your enemies with awesome finishing moves.

The gearbox abomination does not hold a candle to it.

Thinking about going out and picking up this title. I'm sure MP has died off for most but from the videos I have seen this one seems miles better than A:CM
