4Player-"There is absolutely no other way to put it other than to say that it was all a lie. The game we saw in the demos and in ads is nowhere to be found on the final disk. There is no 'next generation lighting', the canon has been trashed, and Pavarotti hasn't sung in years. Aliens: Colonial Marines is a sham. It is Snake Oil that might as well be sold from the back of a wagon by a silver tongued swindler with a bad suit and a handlebar mustache."
