Aliens: Colonial Marines Review (PC)

Softpedia
7 February 2013
  • Conclusion: Aliens: Colonial Marines is a good effort that takes the core of the movie series and translates it into the first-person shooter space, but a poor story and a distinct lack of actual scares make the result less than impressive. Many fans of the franchise will hate the game for its inconsistencies and for the liberties it takes with its narrative. Others will criticize it for lack of dedicated servers on the PC and the limited alien experience in multiplayer.
  • Pros: + Solid shooter mechanics, + Fun multiplayer
  • Cons: - Limited story appeal, - Some animation glitches, - Lack of scares

Aliens: Colonial Marines Review (PC)

13 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Now all we need is a deck of cards…. Man, I’ve waited a long time for this. And as is often the case with something you wait so long for, it’s all too easy to expect too much. As a canon sequel to one of the greatest action films ever made, Aliens: Colonial Marines was always going to struggle to keep up with the expectations, and by and large, to be honest, it was a bit of a failure. Or at least, failed to keep up.
  • Pros: Is a decent love letter to the franchise, with tons of stuff for the Alien fan, weapons, vehicles, locations and more are all very accurate to the canon, location and character models are mostly pretty good, standard but fun FPS gameplay, playing as an Alien is good fun too, voices and sounds are great, as is the music, not too bad a story, which stays within canon, smartguns and turrets are epic, level quality keeps improving as the game goes on, is best played on Ha...
  • Cons: Limited gameplay, and quite short singleplayer, very dated, final boss and ending are very naff, alien animation is rubbish (although the darkness and/or swarms hide this well, multiplayer is forgettable, occasional annoying glitch, although not as bad as often reported on consoles

Análisis de Aliens: Colonial Marines

Juegos db
14 February 2013
  • Summary: Aliens: Colonial Marines es un juego poco equilibrado que falla en la manera de abordar la acción y el miedo Alien. Su mayor problema reside en presentarnos a los bichos como meros acompañantes dispuestos a morir para aumentar la moral de los marines. A más Aliens no quiere decir más satisfacción, pues en las ocasiones en las que el juego presenta situaciones más individualizadas sí se siente un aumento de la morbosidad y el miedo a estos extraterrestres.
  • Pros: - Su multijugador., - La cantidad de referencias y detalles tomadas del filme de Cameron.
  • Cons: - Desfasado a nivel técnico., - Gearbox no aprovecha el material original., - No genera terror más que en contadas ocasiones.
