Sega and Gearbox Software look to recreate the exquisite horror that is Aliens, thrusting you into an adrenaline charged nightmare full of acid bleeding monsters, terrifying dark corridors and plenty of slick weaponry.
James Cameron's 1986 film, Aliens is arguably the greatest science fiction film ever made. Not only does it best its predecessor, Alien (a matter of opinion worth discussing), but it launched a plethora of spin-offs. To say it is one of Hollywood's greatest achievements is an enormous understatement, which is why it is of the utmost importance that Sega handles the license with care. Its 2009 project, Aliens: Colonial Marines, will infect the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and the PC, and the publisher hopes to recreate the film's unrivaled intensity with a squad based first person shooter.
