Diehard GameFAN: Aliens: Colonial Marines Review

DHGF: When a property gets licensed, usually the first reaction of gamers everywhere is to groan as our first experience is that the game is going to be almost a total bust, mediocre at best, and on rare occasions we’ll get a gem out of it like Transformers: War For Cyberton or Batman: Arkham City. Sega licensed the Aliens franchise awhile back and Gearbox eventually ended up with the task of developing what would be considered a sequel of sorts to Aliens and Alien 3 but set far before Alien Resurrection. Some of the key things have made it into the game, some of the details they’ve included are indeed amazing, but when it comes to driving a story in the campaign things get glossed over a bit, and the multiplayer, once I got mine working, isn’t as much fun as it could be, but still delivers. So while we didn’t necessarily get a gem, we didn’t get a full on dud either. Let’s take a look. (Aliens: Colonial Marines, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) -
