Worth Playing: "Aliens: Colonial Marines is both disappointing and sad. The plot plays out like a bad fan-made film with unintentionally bad acting and ties to familiar things because it didn't have any original ideas. The gameplay feels dated and out of step with the evolution of the shooter. Bugs are rampant throughout the title, and the game lacks a level of polish that was expected during the first year of this console generation. There's a sliver of hope in the multiplayer modes, but it's difficult for players to want to give it a shot. While a few gamers will squeeze some fun from this title, most players shouldn't bother with this title unless they've played every other game in every other genre and still have time to kill and a few bucks to spare for a rental."
