First, the single player campaign:-
"That... could have gone better."

The pulse-rifle sound effect is a sound clip that plays, but doesn't match the gun animation - it's basically a sound-bite from Aliens applied like an amateur mod. You'd be less phased if you pulled the trigger and it clucked like a chicken!

The xenomorph A.I. is terrible - they run in circles or just stand around. When attacking they walk (yep walk) up to you and stand up in front of you and swipe repeatedly at your face, at which point you are prompted (every time) to "Press V" to knock them back. When killed they fade to smoke.
That's nothing compared to the dire state of the Non-Player Character A.I. - I've seen three Aliens standing next to my NPC "squad mate" who switches to his motion tracker and turns his back on them. The aliens then danced the funky chicken next to him for a bit before one peeled off and attacked me, once, then walked away. Huh? They didn't attack him, he ignored them.
At one point my NPC got stuck in a doorway and I couldn't proceed because he was required to open a door. Start level again!

As has been said elsewhere, the Non Player Characters randomly teleport from place to place and the motion tracker only picks up aliens that have spawned, so an empty room (according to the tracker) spouts a dozen aliens from thin air as you walk into the room. That renders the motion tracker useless, a prop and nothing more. Also the xeno don't crawl or climb into a room, for the most part, they teleport - appearing half-out of a vent or doorway. The motion tracker measures in metres. But metres in what universe I have no idea! It detects movement in front of you 3M away when clearly nothing is there (that's inside the room!).

This game is like an express elevator to hell, going down! Game over man, game over! They promised so much with this game, now what we going to do now? Maybe we can build a camp fire, sing a couple of songs, maybe we can try that?

1.0 out of 5 stars When Out Sourcing goes Wrong 16 Feb 2013
By Larkin

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Having Played the first few hours of Aliens colonial marine I've come too a couple of conclusions. The AI is terrible, both friendly and hostile (so bad in fact that the dev's had to turn off friendly fire damage otherwise you'd waste your squad in about 5 minutes as they can't help walking in front of you.) Aliens will obediently run straight at you and only become a threat in large numbers, while Hostile humans will actually stand frozen into position until they receive a que to act, like you moving to a certain point in the room or shooting them. The Graphics are conflictingly rushed and beautifully over produced. Weapon textures and movements are perfect as are the locations but the level design, HUD and character movements are all atrocious. Oh and all those cool kill moves we saw in the trailer, inner jaw strikes, tail impalement, only happen in rare per-rendered sections the Aliens themselves will always come up to you and slash with their hands.

The implementation of Bellas character is clearly a late add on, in fact she almost looks like she was ported from Alien's vs Predator the game, the only Marines who look like the ones from the film are the main protagonist and the occasional Red shirt... what happened to all the realistic equipment direct from the Aliens technical manual we were promised? Oddly the plot also seems to be ported from Aliens vs Predator marine campaign too, so no use of imagination there either.

The Simple fact is it doesn't play like a Gearbox game, level design is to clumsy, AI too stupid and I don't think an Alien made by Gearbox would clip through the flaw just by standing in front of me.

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm pretty easy-going when it comes to the Alien franchise. Much as some people hated it, I found a lot to enjoy with Rebellions Aliens Vs Predator game in 2010, and was happy to cut this the same kind of slack.
To give it credit, the initial atmosphere promises a great deal, with evocative music that imitates the great Aliens movie score, authentic sounding pulse rifles, motion trackers and Alien squeals. The gameplay image even comes with a faint blue grain like the movie itself. The hairs on the back of my neck started to go up and I found myself grinning like a child.
Unfortunately, the great first impression is squandered in the most staggering and indescribable way.
Given the huge gestation time of the project from initial inception to final release, we should have been looking at a meaty plot that was fine-tuned like a racehorse - they'd had so much time to get it right. Instead, we get a breathtakingly weak excuse for shoe-horning the Sulaco back into the story despite the fact that the characters actually acknowledge the events of the movie Alien 3 and dismiss the ships reappearance with the verbal equivalent of a shrug and a 'who knows?' when asked how it's miraculously back over LV426.
From that point I started to get a sinking feeling about the quality of the game. Unfortunately the sinking feeling should have been my heart going into my mouth as I went off a drop-slide. The graphics can only be described as peaking at a level bettered in 2008. The animation - of both humans and Aliens - is distractingly atrocious and destroys any immersion in the story: it's the kind of jerky side-stepping in squares and graphically clipping furniture that used to be common in 2001, but was thought long gone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great/
Not as bad now, due to heavy post-release patches, but still not a fantastic game. If you're an Alien fan (such as myself) I recommend getting it, but making sure you get it cheap.
