Considered a true sequel by 20th Century Fox, Aliens Colonial Marines occurs just seventeen weeks after the tragic events at LV-426. As Winter, a search-and-rescue Colonial Marine, you are sent in with a new group of marines to investigate a distress signal sent by the USS Sulaco.
As a game, Aliens: Colonial Marines is an average first-person shooter that tries really hard to recreate the suspense of the movies. If it weren’t for the buggy AI (Artificial Intelligence) and overpowered weapons, this might have been achievable. The occasional bug is certainly forgivable, but it’s disheartening when your marine teammates happen to get caught on walls or run off for no apparent reason when you’re fighting off Xenophobes who are twitching like epileptics and spawning out of nowhere. 2/5
