Not sure why there are so many trolls, but I thought this game was good.

It's being panned across all the review sites because it bait and switched, they basically lied about how the game was going to be.

It's an ok game but it's not great, the lying was the worst part and kills all the status the company created with the BL series.

We agree, Aliens: Colonial Marines is much better than b2.
The level design, pacing, and Xeno's, of course.

Being better than Blands 2 isn't an accomplishment. And I disagree.

Gearbox wasn't alone in making the game, they only got top billing because they were by far the most famous company who touched it. Besides, it's not like they haven't been blamed for releasing a stinker before, if being accused of finally releasing "Duke Nukem Forever" in its final state didn't kill their status this game sure won't.

No, they got top billing because Sega went to Gearbox to make the game. Gearbox then outsourced development for some reason. You notice how Gearbox is trying to shift the blame after the media and fan backlash?

According to the story they've used most of the budget from this game to add funding to BL2 and used the remaining budget to outsource the development to another company.

I wouldn't be surprised if SEGA started suing Gearbox (like breach of conduct) - provided they haven't signed a no suing small type addendum in their stupidity.
