Aliens: Colonial Marines Review

IGN
2 April 2013
  • Excerpt: If James Cameron ever built his own theme park, Aliens: Colonial Marines would be its haunted house. You’d visit it after you’d taken a spin on the Titanic Teacups and stopped in at the Termin-Eater burger stall for a bowl of greasy Schwarzenuggets, served to you by a guy who looked a lot like...

  • Excerpt: Every major sci-fi and action series has that one chapter that they would take back. Star Wars has Return of the Jedi , Indiana Jones has his Crystal Skull and James Cameron's much loved Alien saga has Alien 3 .  Now, over ten years later Sega and Gearbox Software have teamed up to rewrite history...

  • Conclusion: After six years, mountains of hype and some suspiciously deceptive demos that are nothing like the final game, Gearbox’s reputation as a “ Borderlands and crap games that take far too long” studio is now assured.

  • Conclusion: If there is one thing Colonial Marines should be applauded for, it's the faithful recreation of the Sulaco, Hadley's Hope, and LV426. PC players get the best visual experience the game has to offer and it can be tweaked in ways we have come to expect from faithful PC ports.

Aliens: Colonial Marines

ActionTrip
15 February 2013
  • Conclusion: This game is going to stand out as one the most disappointing titles in recent memory. Veteran FPS players won’t waste more than an hour on it. Everyone else should scream in contempt at the developers; rightfully so.
  • Pros: There are many references to the Aliens movie and some memorable set-pieces have also made it into the game, multiplayer is fun for a while;
  • Cons: Doesn't elevate the franchise in any way whatsoever, scarcity of features, unbalanced weaponry, tragic AI, a bug-riddled mess of a game that offers little entertainment.

  • Excerpt: Right from the opening cutscene of Aliens: Colonial Marines, I was geeking out. The game’s James Horner-inspired soundtrack sets a moody, heady tone and I was very excited to take on this would-be sequel to the 1986 film, “Aliens”.

Review: Aliens: Colonial Marines (PC)

Diehard GameFAN
14 February 2013
  • Summary: Aliens: Colonial Marines isn’t the worst game of the year, but it’s far from the best. It’s an ok use of the Aliens license built off what most would deem a generic first-person shooter with some decent window dressing and a halfway decent Xenomorph playability tacked on for multiplayer.
