4.0 out of 5 stars day in the corps, 24 Sep 2013
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Aliens Colonial Marines - Limited Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Okay there's a lot of poor reviews out there ,a lot seem related to disappointments from the early hype and the graphics.Im a massive fan of the film and was eagerly waiting to finally see an amazing game based on it.I was initially disheartened by poor reviews so only bought it pre owned(though new is cheap now).Okay, the graphics are not modern state of the art, BUT Im a gamer who believes atmosphere and gameplay trump pixel perfect every time and this game does have atmosphere!.Use of lighting is excellent,all the guns sound,and act like you feel they should with a good balance of styles.The voice acting works well, the marines are grunts through and through ,but with surprising depths at times (more so than say recent COD).The plot has a fair few twists,it pulls you along well,the co op is very good and works well in single player. Also ,while not having the graphics of say GOW ,it has a campaign that seems to last a heck of a lot longer.
I wasnt expecting to like this but found it addictive and atmospheric. I would have preferred fewer,more powerful enemies and a more suspense/survival horror feel but this game really kept my interest. Not perfect, much room for improvement but you can say that about any game IMHO.
