it's probably because the supermarkets are selling it for a fiver, well, Tesco and Asda are.
it's the same limited edition version too.

maybe Sega offloaded a container full of copies cheap.
trying to recoup some of the money gearbox stole, i mean the money they paid gearbox to make the game. >_>

That's exactly right - the game has been on promotion for quite a few weeks now with the price dropping to £5 and below, so it's probably worth it as a curiosity and piece of gaming history.

God I will never touch this game again. I struggled through all 3 hours of that game with my brother. That game was a true horror not in a good way. T-T

Good to see Forza Motorsport 5 up there but suppressed its higher than GT6 but good to see racing games in the top 20. Bored of the top 20 yoy seeing Fifa, COD, BF, AC, NFS ect each year need some new IP's.

In spite of the articles title, you mentioned Alien CM like zero times. Forza 5 has nothing to do with a mediocre FPS.

Stay on topic :)

"UK Software Chart: Aliens: Colonial Marines shifts into the Top Ten during week of January 11th"

So is this not about the UK software sold? If you click on the link you will see the top 20 games and you will also see Forza and GT in there.

Well, I don't believe my sale actually factors in, but I did grab a Steam code for Colonial Marines off Amazon from back when they were offering them for two bucks.
Honestly, the game, I feel, is better than what many make it out to be . . . but it's not very good. It's a serviceable B-rate shooter that's oozes missed opportunity.
That's about it.

I thought the UK's standards were higher than that!

Just kidding, my friends across the pond!!

We love sh!t games here in the UK, but we like low priced sh!t games even more.
CorndogBurglar  +   535d ago
Haha, gotcha.

I don't care how much ppl don't like Aliens CM. At a paltry £5.98 @PSN right now! It's worth playing, if only for the lore ;/

It's actually decent when it's completely patched but I prefer its predecessor.
