Not Demo but good
9 June 2013
Summary: The single player story is not that impressive, and has a "need to know" vibe that goes with the rank of the character. Your a grunt and no one tells you anything. Not bad but not Sci Fi where things are explained.
Pros: To fully appreciate the PC game it must be purchased for under $30.
Cons: Difficulty is still odd, with soldier and hardened being almost the same.
Summary: I can see why this game would not be appealing to non Aliens fans, you don't know whats going on. But as a fan, you'll love it. The graphics are fair, if you have a good gaming PC like i do. The AI is pretty solid. I wasn't a big fan of the sound it would cut out alot, mostly do to the fact that if you would get in range of the character speaking it would cut to the character instead of through the headpiece.
Summary: This game is great for the Older Adult who nostalgically remember and appreciate the movie . Aliens is a 1986 science fiction action film directed by James Cameron and starring Sigourney Weaver with back then she was the only reason i wanted to see it but this game is in one word "awesome" ! Not only does this game bring the movie to life but actual game play and choices in guns makes it much more fun.
Summary: This game is getting horrible reviews. Honestly the game does not deserve the ratings it is getting. True, graphics are not cutting edge, and the game play is a pretty standard FPS format. Again, nothing new or exciting. But with that said, the game is still a solid FPS with much to offer the average player. Maybe a rating of 6 - 7 for the non Alien fan would be fair.
Conclusion: Look i have Alein v Predetor and that is a great game. Aliens: Colonial Marines well to the players that have put it down in the reviews what do you want Aliens coming out of the screen, Every Game will not be perfect. The game has a story line which follows on from 2nd film but has the licence to go were it wants to go, it mixes it up for the player between fighting other humans as well as Aliens, you dont know who you fighting at any corner which is good it mixies it.
Summary: As an alien fan I did enjoy this short game with less than an average story line. Did not play the original v1.0 which everyone hated, but the latest patched version is quite okay for the fans of the franchise. I would replay the story mode a second time if i had a co-op friend and using a higher difficulty which is saying a lot for this game.
Excerpt: Se ha lanzado para la Xbox, para la Play y para el ordenador. A pocos meses de lanzamiento sigue estando caro pero el alquiler es una acción muy buena para estos casos. Su nombre ya dice de que va el argumento, de marines y de aliens en plena guerra, y de estos últimos conocerás muchas clases, ya que estaremos en una misión en el planeta LV-426.
