PlayDevil: Aliens Colonial Marines Review

Is Colonial Marines really as bad as they say?

Here is a snippet:

The core combat can be pretty fun, despite all of the glaring flaws, however. The blast of the pulse rifles, and the fact that you sometimes face pretty overwhelming odds give the game a Dead Space-esque vibe, albeit with tighter controls and more powerful weaponry. This doesn’t take away from the terror though, as the Aliens come thick and fast, hide in the corners, and can use the walls and ceilings as methods to attack. Whilst these sections never really seem to replicate the sense of hopelessness that faces the Marines in the film, they are still relatively satisfying." (Aliens: Colonial Marines, Xbox 360) 65/100
