Aliens Colonial Marines - Reviews finally leaked, it's total crap

#21StarGoyPosted 2/11/2013 9:31:13 AM
Like most, early footage invoked medium-sized hope. And then actual gameplay emerged. Since then it always looked like overly-scripted junk.

I'll still watch youtube walkthroughs, though.

no surprises

looks like a PS2 game too tbh


I find this comment amusing... Mostly because:

http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps2/480908-aliens-colonial-marines/images

It started out as a PS2 game.

>_>

Still getting it day 1. The Aliens fan in me won't let me pass up on it.


I still plan on getting it day 1 as well, but I cannot lie all this negative talk has me a bit worried. I have wanted this game for far too long and I need more peoples reactions, and I need to read more pros and cons.

That's what i was expecting. Wait'll you see a face hugger up close in the final version....... Gearbox did a Duke Nukem Forever with this one.

And the last boss fight is abysmal.

Still, gotta get it.

I've never seen an Alien movie, have the mouths of the facehuggers always looked like a lady's downstairs?

I came here to chew bubblegum and kick ass. And I'm all out of ass. I'm out of gum too. I guess I'll just sit here.

I don't think that is it's mouth. It is probalby more related to a "lady's downstairs" than a mouth.

A friend of mine is going through it (got an early copy; lucky bastard) and he says despite it's flaws in visuals, the game itself is really fun. At least according to him, the gameplay hasn't suffered at all, which is good news to me.

Yep. At least, since the Aliens design. The one in that picture is pretty much identical to the ones seen in the movie.

They are designed that way, look up any HR Giger stuff and you will see why the Aliens look the way they do. That tube also gets jammed down your throat and it drops an egg inside of you.

@Raycon - Good to hear, this talk of a 5 hour campaign, horrible boss fights, bad AI, lack of replay value in the SP, and apparently its easy even on the harder settings has me worried. I really don't want to be swayed against this game, but damn. I wish GT would get their video review up, or I would hope Angry Joe would have gotten the game early as I really want to hear his opinion on it. I cannot lie, I am a bit worried.

Sega games seems always get average/awful score, but end up being great. (Yakuza, Binary Domain).
