1.0 out of 5 stars Felonious Marines! February 13, 2013
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Releasing this game at $59 / $49 price point should be a crime because:

1) Great graphics.... if it was 2003! I have games that are almost 10 years old that have better graphics

2) AI's are AWESOME ... sorry, i mean AWFUL! They seem stoned/confused half of the time, spinning in place or getting stuck.

3) Gameplay extremely linear... you get to play on the Sulaco and LV-426, but are confined to predetermined paths... should have been an open environment.

4) Most of the time, the Aliens don't sneak up on you.... they appear in front of you and rush at you open-armed.

5) LAME scripting.... conversations seemed forced as they try to simulate (and fail) ALIENS.

6) Inclusion of a usable powerloader should have been awesome, but the controls are horrible and you get ejected as soon as the intended fight finishes

7)NONE of the creepy ambience that made the Aliens movie so awesome is present.

8) I ordered this game 2 years ago, and THIS is what Gearbox delivers? This piece of garbage is on par with Duke Nukem: Forever (Duke actually had much superior graphics)

9) Just listing the previous 8 fails has depressed me.... i could go on and on, but my will to type (and live) have been drained by this piece of gos se!

The ONLY thing good about this game was that Lance Henriksen does a few lines for Bishop....

Do yourself a favor: pick this game up if you find it on the side of the road (It is probably my copy i threw out of a window in my rage). Do NOT pay for this horrible game (get Dead Space 3 instead... you can thank me later).

Thanks for making me feel violated, Randy Pitchford.

Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
When you think Aliens, it brings you feelings of shadowy corridors while being chased by a horde of silent killers who pick one by one your companions, or being swarmed by silent waves of enemies while your ammo is running low.
These concepts have become so popular that they form the basis of almost all modern shooters and even survival games (like RE used to be...but that is for another discussion) but somehow its well used formula has missed the point completely on this new game. It has all the nostalgia tingling elements, like the spot on movie sound effects and epic music, but it somehow lacks soul.
For example, the titular Colonial marines have almost no personality; there is no character that stands up or even holds a candle to the characters of Aliens, hell they could be substituted for tough sounding red shirts from Star Trek for all intents and purposes; they are there to serve as cannon fodder and you will be hard pressed to remember any of them when the main campaign is done. Speaking of the main campaign the game is really brief, with some on rails scripted events but nothing as cinematic as the CoD series. The game basically goes from corridor shooter, where the Aliens mindlessly jump in front of you (even the monster closet scares of Doom 3 where better done almost 10 years ago) or try to swarm you in wide open corridors while you switch from 8 fully loaded weapons and coolly pick them off.
Is it fun? Yeah in a mindless sort of way but this game could have been so much more, they could have given you limited ammo and weapons to carry, so you would actually feel some tension as the Alien swarms attack, or made the corridor shooter scenes actually scary with the enemies popping out all over (once again Doom 3 does it better).

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid let down with some redeeming qualities February 14, 2013
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I pre-purchased on steam purely for the SHARP Stick otherwise I probably would have purchased it here. I am a huge fan of GearBox and of the Alien franchise. I watched all the demo videos, and followed the words of Randy Pitchford like a sweet siren's call. Now I see that the basket of warm delicious bread I thought I was getting is in fact a basket of cold door knobs and I've followed that voice to just get lost in the woods.

To get my rig specs out of the way, everything stock:

AMD A-8120 - Asus Sabertooth 990FX - 16 Gb Corsair DDR3 @ 1800 - Evga GTX 670 - 2 Intel 520 SSDs non raid OS on one, programs on the other - Windows 8 Pro 64 bit

I've played through most of the campaign single player and co-op only on the highest difficulty (Ultimate Badass). I can't speak to the other difficulties. This is where the bulk of criticism is due. When I heard that the IP was licensed from Fox and the game was supposed to be a canon direct sequel to the Aliens movie (my favorite by far) I about joy puked. What follows is why the game is such a disappointment.

SIGHTS:
The maps are fairly true to the movie environments and mostly everything is relatively pretty. Compared to notable releases in the past 6 months the graphics of A:CM are dated. However there is a glaring disconnect in the level of quality and detail in the demo that has been stripped bare for commercial release. You won't get the product in the screen shots or the old teaser videos because sadly that product no longer exists. Textures are good but models and animations are lacking. Get ready for lots of fog.

SOUNDS:
They were able to get all of the original Foley assets from Fox Studios and use them in the game and you can tell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aliens : Colonial Marines is a pretty good game.
They are still making updates to it and it is fun to play. The graphics are good, the action and story keep you playing. I would recommend buying it if you liked the movies.

Meh - it's alright. It makes an effort to pay homage to the Aliens movie and it's fairly cinematic, trying to give the player what they need to be fully engrossed. Read more
