Aliens: Colonial Marines: Lament For a Bad Game and A Bad Situation

Aliens: Colonial Marines was shaping up to be a good game. The only problem it faced was itself and it wasn’t strong enough to defeat itself. Allan Muir of VGU laments the game and the situation the game and company(ies) were in. (Aliens: Colonial Marines, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

If you read the article, he isn't letting them off the hook at all. I think he hit the nail on the head in basically saying Gearbox took on too many projects and Aliens suffered for it. Aliens became an afterthought to devote more company resources to BL2. That is exactly what happened. Gearbox deserves all the criticism its got for this, however I do firmly believe that if they had made Aliens a priority, it would have been the epic game that we all knew it could have been.
