Even though people might review it as a bad game it's because they expected another AvP.
Loving it and I'm looking forward to pre-ordering more games.
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.
The folks who made it conned us! This is a Call of Duty clone with Aliens in it. You spend most of the game fighting human mercs of the Corporation.
AI is shot to hell. The Xeno's just charge you. Your AI partners are worthless. They can't shoot for toffee and always get in the way. None of them are memorable in any way.
The multi-player is fun but get's old fast.
Gearbox promised us a true successor to the Aliens movie. This game looks NOTHING like the trailer that blew our minds. I'm not buying anythings of theirs again unless it is recommended by someone I trust.
It was with some regret then that I noticed that most online reviews had provided almost universally negative reviews of the game (respected website IGN for example only rated it at 3.5/10), but is it really that bad? The answer is no...but sometimes yes.....but mostly no.
The premise of the game is that it is set 17 weeks after the events of the Aliens movie. A Marine unit has been sent to locate the Sulaco (on which Ripley, Hicks and Newt had escaped LV426), locating it not where it was expected to be, but back in orbit above LV426...
You play Marine Corporal Winter sent into the Sulaco after the first two rescue squads had come under attack by an unknown force, and upon entering the stricken ship you find it infested with the xenomorphs.
It transpires that the nefarious Weyland-Yutani corperation, in attempting to resurrect their attempts to turn the alien into a weapon they can control, had discovered the drifting Sulaco before the Marines, captured, bred and genetically engineered surviving aliens and created a nest within the bowels of the space craft. The aliens - as is their habit - had escaped, and thats where you pick up the plot.
On the positive side gamers will explore the depths of the craft as well as visiting other familiar locations such as the Hadleys Hope colony and the downed space craft on the surface of LV426 which had lead to the original infestation. There are many tips of the hat to the Aliens franchise to be found.Read more ›
Starting with the story (something Sony and Gearbox have both been bigging up for the past year and a half) , claimed to be a true sequel of the Aliens, you join a group of marines aboard the U.S.S Sulaco sent in to investigate LV-426 after the rescue call from the victims of the film. What transpires is an attack by the aliens, and all in all a short and dull campaign.
I really tried to like the campaign, and at times I did. But for the most part, it is an uninspired, dull and lifeless story, with one dimensional characters you feel absolutely nothing for. The story fails to build up tension, bombarding players with enemies until there is no atmosphere left. There are a few pluses though, collecting Dog tags and movie memorabilia is fun, and ranking up whilst playing the campaign is useful for multi-player.
The graphics are, well, pretty bad for a game of 2013. The textures are at times awful, and it often feels like dim lighting is used to hide the fact the game looks like it was released four years ago. However saying that, the lighting is extremely effective in building atmosphere at the start of the game. Unlike the graphics, the sound/audio is good (except for the voice acting), the aliens sound brilliant, as do the pulse rifle sounds, which are just like that of the alien franchise.Read more ›
