Yeah, I saw an interview about this on Gametrailers. Apparently they had to work with the folks who produced the movie to get this story integrated properly.

Of course, actually playing it will tell us everything. Looks better than Sega's AvP game, that's for sure.

I don't think it looks better than Sega's one. Aliens don't even react to being shot in this one.(problem is...they haven't put much effort into the actual gunplay I think and how Aliens react to being shot which is basically, they don't. Pump bullets and they will drop, even a shotgun gets no reaction from them)

Although the scripted events look miles better.

@ Fei hung, http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... recommend these two games. Avp 1 and 2. They are the best games that have anything to do with Aliens or predators

Oh since they're pretty old...They'll run on any Pc these days basically

AvP2 was amazing. Great single-player, even better multiplayer. Sucks that Activision shut down the multiplayer master server.

I'm hoping Aliens Colonial Marines will be as fun as AVP cause that game was fun as hell just had alot of glitches and matchmaking basically sucked but i don't expect this one to be like it.

I'd have to say that AvP on the PS3 was an honerable attempt. Definately better than most over the years.

I really liked the humans vs. aliens gametype for AVP. It scared the hell out of me playing as human. Hopefully this game does the same.
WeskerChildReborned  +   738d ago
Yea the most fun i had was playing infestation mode which i really do hope will be back in Alien's colonial marines cause the mode was one of the best modes on AVP.

I hope its one of those games that you didn't expect much from it, but totally blow you away when it released.
Yangus  +   739d ago
Aliens: Colonial Marines coming WiiU.Ok.

RE6 why not?
Yodagamer  +   739d ago
Maybe capcom doesn't like extra money.
dark-hollow  +   739d ago
Because RE6 announced after wii u so my guess is they will announce a wii u version in E3.

Yeah, Capcom isn't greedy at all.

Wonder if this can go down as the real successor to AVP on the Atari Jaguar. I bought that console just to play AVP and boy was it good!
ACEMANWISE  +   738d ago
All I can say is that this is the only game based straight off of the Aliens movie in gaming history. The first was on the Commodore 64. I'm suprised they haven't done games based on that movie a hundred times by now.,,,especially considering how much influence that movie had on the movie and game industry.

The Wii U controller as the radar the Marines use would be sick! Seeing dots on the radar coming at you while the controller keeps beeping faster n faster
Arnon  +   738d ago
That... is pretty sick.

R1CAN617  +   738d ago

Either way, this game is looking good, can't wait.
ACEMANWISE  +   738d ago
I did. Wrote down every airduct on paper and made maps. Still have the game too.
Ness-Psi  +   738d ago
The game is looking excellent and scary.
ninjahunter  +   738d ago
Bad ports are exclusively developed for pc ,Duh! (/S)
legend911  +   738d ago
The simple controller "gimmicks" can be very fun alongside the tablet and app craze, Nintendo first party such as Mario craze, and then the CoD and BF craze, coupled with an array for third party games. Please market it properly Nintendo...
