Aliens: Colonial Marines

2 September 2013
  • Summary: Aliens: Colonial Marines has been one of my most anticipated games every year for over half a decade. My love of anything distinctly related to Xenomorphs, as well as my general high regard for the majority of Aliens games released over the years, made it a sure winner in my book. At the start of every year, it made my "most wanted" list, but every single year, it was delayed, consistently pushed back for one reason or another. Rebellion's Aliens vs.

Aliens: Colonial Marines (PS3) - Review

4 March 2013
  • Excerpt: A few months ago in a crowded, sweaty hall in London I played the multiplayer mode of a rather promising looking shooter called Aliens: Colonial Marines . In my fleeting moments with the game, I observed a tense and nervous fight between humans and Xenomorph, an exhilarating dance of flash-lights and teeth. It was great. My hopes were thus understandably high for the full release.

Review: Aliens: Colonial Marines

Everyday Gamers
20 February 2013
  • Excerpt: You have been separated from your unit. You have no weapons. As you walk through the sewers, you do your best to not make a sound, as some of the alien husks around you are actually alive and would be attracted to it. The problem is no matter how carefully you tread, it is impossible to not make any noise when traversing ankle-deep water.
  • Pros: Some really great moments in the campaign, Interesting multiplayer
  • Cons: Much of the campaign is lackluster, Few people playing multiplayer, Leaves you wondering what might have been

Aliens: Colonial Marines review

19 February 2013
  • Conclusion: "Fans of the franchise will enjoy being enveloped in the Aliens universe..." "...there's really nothing fun about Colonial Marines." "...scraping the bottom of what you expect from a shooter in 2013.
  • Pros: Occasional strong set piece moments, Ample Aliens lore throughout, Playing as xenomorphs in multiplayer
  • Cons: The incredibly uninteresting story, Wholly uninspired gameplay, Clunky campaign co-op

Review: Game over man, Aliens: Colonial Marines falls flat

19 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Heading into Aliens: Colonial Marines, I was sure of two things: the Alien film franchise is one of the best sci-fi classics and it has never had a proper video game tie-in. Plenty have tried to replicate the experience in the form of a video game, but they have failed countless times. For some reason, developers and publishers can't seem to get it right.

Aliens: Colonial Marines – Review

Games Asylum
16 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Has there ever been a movie license more perfectly suited to a videogame adaptation than Aliens? The movie series has influenced countless games over the years, from its entire arsenal of sci-fi weaponry to the design of H.R. Giger’s Xenomorphs. Heck, a few games are even guilty of copying Aliens’ marine banter word for word.
