What Went Wrong With Aliens: Colonial Marines?!

The warning signs were there, our motion trackers should have picked up on it, but we chose to ignore the fact that there hadn't been any pre-release reviews. We shouldn't have ignored the odd release date or the ridiculous amount of pre-release hype being pushed. But we did, and we bought it, and it was rubbish. Game-Modo are talking of course, about the years biggest disappointment so far: Aliens: Colonial Marines.

So what went wrong? (Aliens: Colonial Marines, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

The false advertising and using the funds SEGA gave them for Aliens on Borderlands 2 (which SEGA will likely sue for due to it BL2 being a 2K published game). seems to be the main things; also explains why Borderlands 2 was such an uncharacteristically large leap forward in quality for Gearbox.

They took a wrong turn at the pitchford. They should have turned left but they zoolander'd it.

Everything. I will not be surprised if the Wii U is now cancelled.

I wouldn't bet on that. It was slated for release in the Wii U's launch window. I have to assume it's at least near completion. They may as well release it and see if they can make some money back from it.

What!!! "They may as well release it and see if they can make some money back from it." Who in their right mind will buy that hot turd of a game??? Its is now known the game is a disgrace to the Alien brand. I know I will not waste my $60 on it.

I don't really listen to reviews; I've been itching to try it myself and I also want to know if Deimurge managed to do anything differently with the Wii U port while Gearbox and Timegate goofed up the other versions.

And like I said, the game may as well be nearly finished. They ought to just get it out there and see if they can get some revenue for the time spent developing it.

From the ammount of complaints about the game the better question would be what didnt go wrong :) i havent played it yet but im sure ill get around to it in a couple weeks. Games like this is why i love gamefly hell ill play it & if it as bad as everyone says (which isnt always the case) then ill just send it back!

After comparing the Need For Speed screenshots for the X360 and the Wii U versions I believe Wii U's version has a high chance to be like the demo(as stated by a rumor a couple of days ago), that's why they haven't cancelled it yet, it would be just really dumb to release the same game that went that bad, it still in development by Demiurge Studios though, hopefully they won't screw up like Gearbox. Only time can tell.
