Summary: This is a terrible game; let me state that from the outset! I think the shame of this game is that the design concept was brilliant. Someone, somewhere, had a great idea for a game which would appeal massively to the Alien(s) fanbase. The Alien franchise had the potential to be one of the best film franchises in movie history, but we got the tepid Alien 3 and the absolutely awful Alien Resurrection. Aliens has been done as a game, many times over.
Summary: Was optimistic even though the reviews were poor. I could of lived with the poor quality game play it is entertaining if your a fan but the grain effect! Why spoil the graphics by making the whole think look like your looking through a mysty fogged up dirty glass. And the video setting are very limited and with the grain effect you can't turn off really spoils the games shiny graphics your pc is trying hard to show off but just can't quite see it .
Summary: The visuals in this game are very good - but that's all that's good about it. Apart from the fact it takes an hour for most people to install there are no quicksaves - only checkpoint saves which can rapidly get tedious, frustrating and annoying. This is just lazy programming at it's very worst. For a corporation as large as this I really expected more. If you need serious dental work done then choose that as your best option, but avoid this game like the plague!
Summary: Straight off I will have to mention that I picked this game up cheap and that I am playing it in its heavily patched current state. I like the aliens franchise and have played most of the aliens/predator games that have been released. ACM is no worse and indeed better than some of those in my opinion. Does ACM set the FPS genre alight? No, it doesn't. If you like the franchise is it entertaining, albeit generically? Yes, it is.
Summary: you obviously don't know what aaa means glitchy as hell terrible gameplay This Game is terrible but at least it reaches bin material I also get a disk to record my coronation street with so that's a bonus
Summary: Aliens: Colonial Marines for the PC is not as bad as some people say. You have to be a real Aliens fan to like this game it's not a classic but it's okay. But much better than Acclaim's Alien Trilogy, now that was a very awful Aliens game. Good things about the game, this is the nearest you will get to feel of the Aliens films, the soundeffects of the guns are excellent and I like the skins you can put on your guns, it's got good action and you can use all the Aliens...
