Games.TM reviews Aliens Colonial Marines. It's disappointing.

That review seems pretty graphics-whoreish.

From what I've read, the game is more like Duke Nukem Forever, in mechanics and design.
Heck it seems like the aliens don't react to bullets when you shoot and are complete idiots, like DNF.

Nintendo fans were actually hyping the game and it sucks?! Damn, Nintendo can't catch a break. Karma must have a vendetta out on Nintendo because nothing is going right for them. It's sad honestly.

this is inaccurate. the aliens will retreat after being shot and go into the walls, under floors, etc. and attempt to attack from another angle.

Whenever it pops up on the U I'll buy it and I'll probably enjoy it.

I was watching a video on Youtube.
The aliens run straight at the player when he's shooting them and they just scream.
They don't show any reaction at all. All they do is run straight into bullets.

Even the review said their AI is sloppy.

I think we're arguing over different things. You're talking about when the aliens attack. It seems there are long attack animations, so if they get shot during the attack they just keep going.

I'm talking about shooting them as they approach, or leaving one alive without killing it. Then they go another route.

I'll link you to a video where I saw them acting like that:

Looked like crap to begin with, do not know why you needed a review to confirm this.
