Aliens: Colonial Marines Comments
Ridley Scott’s Alien is rightfully considered to be one of the most influential films in Hollywood history. Director James Cameron took things to the next level, with the highly coveted sequel, Aliens, which probably influenced more action games than any other movie, barring movies like Star Wars, Star Trek or Blade Runner (and Saving Private Ryan)...

Wow...just wow. This franchise is cursed.

I knew it. I absolutely love Alien and Aliens and I won't be touching this turkey. Thanks for the warning.
  Vader: Touching turkeys is generally a very risky business.
LostPcGamer: Yes you don't know were that turkey has been.
EricHalfBee: I consider myself warned twice over.
Vader: And I'm guess the touching will resume nonetheless?
EricHalfBee: I touched but I did not choke.

These cunt should be sued for false advertising. Have you seen the E3 2011 demo?! It's fucking amazing.

Wow, Gearbox. You really fell flat on your face with this one. Just so you guys know, Vader is squarely in the median with his score of this game. Not at all an outlier. This garbage is being universally panned.

That being said, it seems to me like a tap-dancing hermit crab would actually be extremely entertaining. And at least a helluva lot more entertaining than this game.


edit: There's supposedly a Gearbox dev on Reddit who's come out claiming that "85%" of the game was developed by TimeGate Studios, while Gearbox truly focused on Borderlands 2.

The notion is plausible. It is indeed difficult to understand how the same people that made Borderlands 1/2 could then turn around and make this trash, and it is indeed believable that TimeGate would make a game like this.

However, even if its true, Gearbox still deserves blame for outsourcing to TimeGate in the first place. I've known TimeGate was a crap developer ever since their mediocre FEAR expansion campaigns; what's Gearbox's excuse for ignorance?
  EricHalfBee: I agree that it's hard to see how the same team could…

I think knowing the demo turned off (or pissed off) some people. I'm glad I haven't touched this thing. I'm just starting Dead Space 3. Waiting for Bioshock.

Fuck you Gearbox and your Snorederlands! I expected something close to Brothers In Arms, not DNF 2 !.

As a franchise fan I'm extremely disappointed.

cant complain about free games, i pirate everything anyway
  Cheddar: At least you're honest. Respect.

It's a goddamned shame, because it seems (from all the Developer Diaries) that these guys were true fans of the lore; I was at least expecting something better than the average shooter that was put out in 2010 by Rebellion Studios (/spit). http://www.gametrailers.com/reviews/w5vsrc/al​iens-vs-predator-review

Hard to believe this came out worse.

Well, there's still AvP2, from (the once-great) Monolith Studios. http://www.gamespot.com/aliens-versus-predato​r-2/reviews/aliens-versus-predator-2-review-2​823809/

Now *where* did I put those CDs...? ;)
  Shurj: Does it run on Windows 7?
