SystemLink: "The Official Playstation Magazine (UK) had a world exclusive playthrough of Aliens: Colonial Marines, the much delayed Gearbox shooter. Below is all they saw, heard, and shot at."
"OPM were unimpressed with the game thus far - weak shotguns, awkward QTEs, and the lack of a musical shift during chases left them 'a mite cold'" Not surprised really, there hasn't been a good Alien/predator FPS in 10 years
Too bad, I really love Aliens and Predators. Wish somebody could make a great game one day. It's hard to stand up againt comepition as well; BF3, MW3, Uncharted 3, Gears 3... people will be busy playing these sadly.
There are positives as well I suppose but ENOUGH with QTEs.
So OPM wasn't impressed, but they feel Gearbox is passionate enough to make sure they get it right. Take your time Gearbox. Make the WiiU version as sick as the pc version and use the WiiUmote as a motion sensor. Sounds so sick!
A preview that isn't overly positive?! Must be a first!
HOW DAMN HARD IS IT TO MAKE A GREAT VIDEOGAME BASED ON A FRANCHISE!!! jesus christ. do we just need to hand off everything to Rocksteady? this is disappointing.
Why does everyone keep bringing up Predators? This is just Aliens.
IF there's gonna be QTE's then make them hard at least. I wanna fight for my life if a face hugger's trying to give me kiss. Or at least hold it off long enough for my buddies to yank it off me. Too much baby-easy mode qte's around. This makes them boring and repetetive - fast.
I could face hug this game to death... Oh wait a minute. OPM just have LoL. I really hope (just like everybody here) that this franchise gets the absolute best Dev possible. Story sounds a winner, let's hope gameplay follows.
this is the first preview of the game that i have seen that says its only ok. most say its good/great.
