Aliens: Colonial Marines Review (ITF Gaming)

William Mabin from ITF Gaming writes: Aliens in video games have come a long way. In 1982, the first game based on the popular film franchise was released for the Atari console and appeared as little more than a sci-fi version of Pacman, featuring Ridley Scott’s space monsters instead of ghosts. The film Aliens, directed by James Cameron set the precedence for today’s gaming when a handful of friends watched the film and felt inspired to make a little game called Doom. Since then games have made use of many variations of the themes and creatures that HR Giger designed for the original Alien film. Therefore, in 2013 a lot of pressure has been thrust upon Gearbox to make an Aliens game that can sate the appetite of hardcore fans of the series… as well as gamers themselves. (Aliens: Colonial Marines, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 6.6/10
