Vaughn from TheGamersHub writes: "It’s hard to deny it, Aliens: Colonial Marines isn’t the greatest movie tie-in title ever made – even though it really should have been. It had everything in the right place during the early development scenes and splashes we got a chance to see. For one it was being published by Sega, who tend to release some pretty decent titles when they throw some money behind them. Secondly it was in the hands of Gearbox Software, a developer who has churned out some pretty stellar titles like Borderlands and Brothers in Arms. It was also based around the rather fantastic Alien universe – focusing rather squarely upon perhaps James Cameron’s best film: Aliens. Yet, after having gone through the game development digestive system, in the end all that appeared was a little bit of a turd."
