2.0 out of 5 stars Aliens: Incompotent Design 16 Aug. 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played a fair few games that have been given a critical panning over the years and I often find that they only really suffer from being distinctly average. Few of them could be described as truly poor or unplayable, but I have to say that `Aliens: Colonial Marines' takes a stab at just this. The universe of `Aliens' is an extremely rich one; it blends all out action with scares and great world building. How on LV-426 could you mess things up?

Lacking ambition is one way and this can be said of Gearbox with this game. They have made the brilliant `Borderlands' games, but they are also prone to stuff like `Duke Nukem Forever'. `Colonial Marines' most obvious flaw is its blandness. You are dropped off on planet LV-426 and asked to explore the Alien invested buildings. Graphically, things look pretty poor with brown being the colour of the day. Even Gearbox could not totally mess up the gameplay; the pinging motion detectors are excellent and ramp up the tension. That is until you start despatching aliens left, right and centre. They become as scary as a room full of kitten (deadly kittens?)

The aliens are totally undermined by awful Artificial Intelligence. The xenomorphs should glide across the walls and ceiling, using their hive mind to catch their prey. In some cases the `Colonial Marines' aliens walk right into you. One particularly poor level has you hiding from blind Aliens - so bad, it is almost funny. The game may have been saved if there had been some sort of innovation somewhere, but there is not. The guns feel a little light in the hand and the levels are repetitive and dull. If it were not for the tense motion detector sections the game would be a complete bust. Fans of the `Aliens' films will be angered by how their franchise has been treated, fans of games will be angry about how their pastime has been treated.

3.0 out of 5 stars Aliens Colonial Marines 12 Feb. 2013
By T. W. Marshall TOP 500 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
**NO SPOILERS**

We've been waiting for what seems like an age for this to arrive, constant delays and rescheduled releases, after playing it for 4-5 hours I think its time to write a review....

The quality of this pack for £70 is on par with other 'Special Editions'. Inside the pack you get a limited Xenomorph box, the game, an Alien and Powerloader model with base, USCM Dossier, Mission Brief, USS Sephora Schematic, Recruitment Card, LV-426 Recon Photos, Iron on USCM badges and a Graduation Certificate from the US Marine Training Academy. You get the DLC codes as well but these are digital products not physical.

The quality and detail on the Powerloader model is good, if sold separately I'd put a £20 price on it. I collect Aliens merchandise and the Powerloader is something that has surprisingly not been miniaturised that much. There is the Halcyon self assemble, Konami series, Kubrick and the Kenner toy, unless you have a pro painted custom Halcyon this is by far the best quality and it's in a really good pose with the alien. The model is very sturdy and it wont break easily I believe its a die-cast resin. I would say that the quality is better than the Neca series and on par if not better than McFarlane's Movie Maniacs.

I've read reviews that the single player can be completed in less than 2 hours... I've started on the Hardened difficulty and am on the 2nd mission after 1.5 hours so I think 2 hours is a bit optimistic. I like the gunplay, the movement and shooting feels a lot like Halo but you still have to LT aim to get accurate shots. Levels are so far claustrophobic which coupled with a reworked version of James Horner's classic soundtrack add to the atmosphere, but not by much. They are gracelessly designed.

2.0 out of 5 stars 5 star rating , i dont think so ! 16 Nov. 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
People giving this 5 star have no sense of gaming, 5 star games are like metal gear, Batman, halo 2 etc. . If you think it's up their with award winning games so be it. The game is bad the hype leading up to it was outrageous. I remember the alien trilogy for ps it had scare factor this falls on so many levels too many to count. Tho the statute is a nice touch to it but shouldn't merit a 5 star rating. Sega fail at so many games. It's hard to believe that Sega were at once a top company.

2.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing waste of a massive licence. 28 April 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
ALIENS: COLONIAL MARINES is a spiritual sequel to the smash-hit sci-fi horror movie ALIENS. That film is a classic of the genre and time has robbed it of none of its power to thrill and scare, not to mention having some truly memorable characters. Gamers who are themselves fans of the Alien franchise were probably excited at the prospect of stepping into the shoes of a marine and blowing away malevolent xenomorphs, especially with the number of times that the release date was pushed back, and now this game has finally arrived. The question is: "Was it worth the wait?"

Sadly, I am sorry to report that "No" is the simple answer to that question. Let me go into just a selection of points that really stop this game from being the one that Alien fans have been waiting for.

Let's start with the graphics. While they are not awful, they are a far cry from what XBox 360 users have now become accustomed to and, given the aforementioned release date push-backs and the fact that this console's successor is on the horizon, we did expect something far more impressive than this. What we instead get is uninspiring textures and dull-looking flames and other effects that look like they have stepped off a PC from about ten years earlier. While admittedly good graphics on their own are not as important as gameplay, the comparative crudity of those in Aliens: Colonial Marines does detract from the overall atmosphere, even though portions of familiar settings such as Operations on LV-426 and the Sulaco have been painstakingly recreated in the game. (Look at the graphics on the first Gears Of War, which came out in 2006; even those are better than this!)

The new characters themselves are not particularly interesting, nor are the voices of the actors playing their parts.
