Aliens: Colonial Marines – Review [GamingLives]

GamingLives takes a look at Aliens: Colonial Marines to see whether it is a stand up fight, or just another bug hunt... literally.

"Gearbox really needed to go on a bug hunt of their own. Screen tearing and texture pop-in run riot, characters walk and talk as if they’re articulated action figures, and aliens sometimes spawn out of thin air, because coming out of the walls they certainly are not. Less forgivable is the lazy story that’s been shamefully ham-fisted into the Aliens canon. How is the Sulaco floating above LV-426? Why isn’t Hadley’s Hope a colossal crater? Come the end credits you’ll still be none the wiser, and even Gearbox go so far as to acknowledge even they don’t know what’s going on. When the plot should be explaining how events came to be they ignorantly shrug it off." (Aliens: Colonial Marines, PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360) 5/10
