By far the WORST game ever

Summary: Honestly this will be nice and short. We've seen lots of great games this year. Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider, Last of Us, Saints Row 4, and Injustice all seemed to go above and beyond. However this year started off poorly with a game that disappointed me and lots of people. That game is Aliens: Colonial Marines. The story is pretty bad, the marines are way over powered in multiplayer, and it just wasn't interesting. Graphics weren't that great either.
Summary: I wanted it to be good. I played it for two weeks, wanting my Hundred dollars of the Collector's Edition to pay off. And I mean the hype...well it failed. Aliens: Colonial Marines, is terrible. Only if you were the hardest hardcore fan could you possibly retain this game. And I didn't. The graphics look PS2ish, with cardboard character animations that look nothing like the E3 demo.
Summary: I'm going to be honest here. I got this game because my friend got it and loved it. I didn't really want to, but I did. I love the fact you level up by completing the story and it has co-op, but other than that It's fair to say this is the worst game I've played by far. What my friend said was better than Red Dead Redemption and Black Ops 2 wasn't even in their league.
Summary: I thought this would be like Aliens vs. Predator, which was a pretty good game, but it failed to even measure up to it. The aliens theme seems a little tired, so you have to cut this version some slack. The graphics were okay, but the characters didn't seem that believable, and the sound effects were somewhat substandard. The most frustrating part was when the game glitched and wouldn't let me do a basic command to move forward in the plot.
Summary: Aliens: Colonial Marines is tagged as the cannon sequel to Aliens, and is even recognized by 20th Century Fox. This was supposed to be the big seller for the game, but turned out to be a disappointment. The story starts off slow and never pick up. the small scale of the story is disappointing and for half the you don't even care why you are doing what you are told.
Summary: First of all, the story is horrible. Some aspects of it do not make sense with the aliens movie timeline. and the ending is just stupid as well as the final boss fight. If you read comments on the Facebook page there are a lot of player that hate this game. The special weapons that can be found are just stupid. Yeah, we all like easter eggs, but this game does it badly. not only is there not challenge, but the story bores the player.
Summary: The best thing about this game aside from the name is how true to the movie the sounds are. The gameplay is not good, the multiplayer is horrible, coop is decent, overall VERY disappointed in this!!! Rent the game DO NOT buy it!!!
Summary: I had this game paid off in advance and was expecting to pick it up on its release date. Well i got it and it was a total let down. The graphics were about 4-5 years outdated, and the game play was stupid and repetitive. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. If anything, rent it at redbox and see for yourself.
Summary: The whole problem with the game started before it was even released. Due to those reasons the game is less than to be expected/don't get your hopes up for this game. Game play is alright it has the feel of a early 2000 style game. graphics aren't the best and the story line is pretty rough, weapons and ammo are easy to find. Not saying it is a bad game,just not worth anything over 20 dollars.
Summary: This game was Bad. The movements were slow and felt forced not fluid. The sound of the Aliens and the Smart gun were the only thing that was good about this game. The graphics fade in and out and never felt smooth. As for the story it did not feel like the bridge between Aliens and Aliens 3 that it was supposed to be. Throwing in some causal replay moments from the movies was just a bad idea they did not feel like they belong and just come out of nowhere.
