+Shooting is solid
+Xenomorphs are fun to fight
+RPG-like progression in campaign is a nice touch
+One level that takes away your guns is particularly good
+Playing as marines in multiplayer has its moments
+Sound effects and music gets the job done
-One of the ugliest games I've ever played this gen
-Textures take forever to load in almost every area
-Awful frame rate
-Visual and gameplay glitches abound
-Animation is garbage
-All graphical effects are hugely unimpressive and some look like they were ripped from N64 games
-You know that effect when water or another liquid slides down the screen? You know, it's in, a thousand games? Somehow, Colonial Marines manages to **** that up
-AI partners range from room-clearing murdering machines to being stuck on walls
-AI partners magically teleport ahead of you
-Characters are boring cliches and it's impossible to care about any of them
-Cruz, Winter, and another soldier later in the game look almost identical
-Story is uninteresting and downright boring
-Enemy AI can't see you if you just stand completely still in multiple areas
-Multiplayer is painfully generic
-Playing as Xenomorphs is not fun at all
-Maps are uninspired
-Takes "Follow Me simulator" to a whole new level
-Voice acting is terrible and the voices don't even fit with the characters
-Conker's Bad Fur Day features a more powerful Powerloader
-Last boss fight is pathetic (CBFD did that better, too)

Verdict:

F*** it

Thanks, horror_spooky.

Always thought this was a neat idea for a reoccurring thread, and I was interested in hearing about what exactly went wrong with Aliens: Colonial Marines. I mean, other than obvious. There's some hilarious **** posted on Youtube.

I have to disagree with at least a third of what TC wrote here (I already posted specifics on the mirror post on the PS3 board), and am very suspect as to whether he/she has actually played it or if he's going off heresay alone.

Some of the things posted here are simply not true or isolated incidents.

horror_spooky has been doing mini-reviews like this for a long while as his previous entries have shown. It's just his mini-review from playing the game, nothing more.

With all due respect sir, I have beaten the game, have spent extensive time with the multiplayer, and even wrote the guide that should pop up on this site tomorrow.

I played this game. I played this game a lot more than can possibly be healthy for any one human being.
