Excerpt: With Aliens: Colonial Marines , developer Gearbox Software and publisher SEGA attempted to revive a classic franchise that has yet to see a video game release that could help propel the series to a new height in popularity with a new generation of gamers.
Conclusion: There's fun to be had in Colonial Marines, even if the wooden characters, who-cares storyline and often feline-like aliens don't deliver the face-hugging depth to the game that they ought.
Pros: Faithful alien character design, original score and sound effects, interior ship levels wonderfully lit, first-person shooting thrills, when the game opens up and explores stealth and exploration mid-campaign it becomes original and engaging, play as aliens in multiplayer
Cons: AI can be dumb, lacks the required scares, repetitive gameplay, levels often based in same landscape, story lacks engagement, some character and checkpoint glitches
Summary: Um es kurz zu machen: "Aliens: Colonial Marines" ist leider eine ziemliche Enttäuschung geworden. Fades Gameplay, praktisch völlig ohne Atmosphäre und
Charakter - da hilft nur noch der Multiplayer-Modus, um das Ganze etwas aus den Miesen zu reißen.
