Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Aliens: Colonial Marines: Limited Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
I have, as many of the other reviewers have said, waited literary years for this game to come out and pre-ordered it as soon as I could. I am a huge Alien fan and love all the movies, well maybe not resurrection, and I could not wait for this to be released. I was concerned that Gearbox were making it as I have yet to be impressed with anything they have done but figured since 20th Century Fox were involved then it would be decent. I'm sorry, no gutted, to say Gearbox have not done a good job yet again. This was delayed time after time and I ask what the hell have they been doing???????? I bought this with the full intention of it being a keep forever job but I don't think it will be. The AI is really poor and the Aliens are just really dumb. They certainly don't hunt or act like they do in the films.
Some people are going on about there is no acid splash burns etc, well let's be realistic, you would be dead in about 4 seconds if that were the case! It would be like the troops in COD being incapacitated with one bullet, now how guff would that be?
To sum up, if you like the films and fancy a go at blasting some Aliens then give it a shot. If you are looking for COD in space then leave it on the shelf.
One thing though, it certainly ain't a classic like the movie
