Aliens: Colonial Marines Should Have Followed The Example Of Sports’ Gaming’s Elite

Owen Good: ''Inside a publisher or a studio, there are few surprises when a video game bombs in its reviews. Before it goes from gold master to warehouse to retailer, the focus groups are empaneled, the "mock reviewers" are contracted, and their verdicts are in. Everyone knows roughly where the game will land in the all-controlling 100-point scale of Metacritic. It takes hubris and delusion on the scale of Too Human or Kane & Lynch to be blindsided by a bad review score these days.'' (Aliens: Colonial Marines, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)
