TheHDRoom: "Aliens: Colonial Marines is not a great game. Actually, it's a stretch to call it a good game. I'm most comfortable in labeling it a "decent" game. Sure, it has it's moments, but taken as a whole, it is very evident that the developers, Gearbox Software and Time Gate Studios, either didn't care, or were too rushed to create what could have been a masterpiece of a licensed Sci-Fi shooter. Now, with seven years since the announcement, and five years since the first screenshots, it is really hard to say that Aliens: Colonial Marines was a "rushed game." So, questions arise as to what went wrong, and why?"
