How Aliens: Colonial Marines became one of the biggest trainwrecks in gaming history

Despite promising to offer one of the best sci-fi experiences yet, Aliens: Colonial Marines fails as a licensed game. What went wrong? (Aliens: Colonial Marines, PS3, Xbox 360)

Bigger than Duke Nukem?? However this game was very bad.

Oh, it's not that bad...The game is serviceable & has plenty of fan service, it just goes to show that these developers aren't the bees knees that everyone thought they were. There fans laid most of the blame for Duke Nukem, on the development team that started it, but we all know they were responsible for the game as soon as they took it over, so Gearbox were the ones responsible (now personally I have Duke on PS3, & although nowhere near earth shattering, I enjoyed the thing), and now Aliens:CM proves that Gearbox are are tad overated.....I mean, even the much praised Borderlands is a somewhat painful experience, with highly annoying, repetitive enemies.

I also bought Aliens:CM, even after I had read several bad reviews.....but, I did see a some good reviews amongst the bad ones, & that was enough for me to buy the game from EB's with the option to return it within there 7 day return policy timeframe, if I didn't like it.....but, I decided to keep the thing, as there are no other Aliens games available, as good as this....simple as that...put some of the old ones on & you'll see my point.

agree totally, me and the bro enjoyed the co-op campaign for the laughs and scares we got, yeah some places are rough, and MP could be better, but overall it was not bad game, not as bad as some these people would like to make out, i hope they make the co-op survivor mode, me bro are looking forward to it

Its not even that serious. The game wasnt gonna sell well regardless if it was good or not. Alien games have always sucked. When i first heard about this game the first thing that came to mind was "this game is gonna suck, why are there even people gettin hyped about it".
