Aliens Colonial Marines review

 

Aliens Colonial Marines is a patchy but addictively fun shooter

Pulse rifles! ; Well-written story ; Fun multiplayer

Rubbish textures ; Stodgy character models ; Alien ‘jazz’ hands

Aliens: Colonial Marines review

 

This latest of oh-so-many embarrassments bearing the much-abused Aliens name was six years in development, but you'd be forgiven for thinking Aliens: Colonial Marines was churned out in six months.

Aliens: Colonial Marines

 

Can the makers of Borderlands deliver the definitive Aliens game?

Authentic locations from the movie ; All the classic Aliens weapons ; Half-decent multiplayer options

Dated graphics ; Mediocre FPS gameplay ; Packed with bugs and glitches

Nor is the shooting all that satisfying. The aliens do all the right things - crawling along the ceilings, popping out from nowhere to attack - but don't they move in quite the right way and make a less convincing menace the more the game goes on....

Aliens: Colonial Marines Review

 

Aliens: Colonial Marines has been some six years in the making. Is this more Borderlands from Gearbox, or more Duke Nukem Forever?

Aliens: Colonial Marines" is a crushing disappointment, but it isn’t the absolute travesty that the media have made it out to be. I’m not sure if this is as a result of the week one patch, but I didn’t experience any of the bugs or glitches that seem...

Aliens: Colonial Marines PC Review

 

It is hard to know where to begin with Aliens: Colonial Marines. This is a game so monumentally disappointing that it has actually managed to taint my feelings towards James Cameron's 1986 classic film. Having been in development for over six years it...

Aliens: Colonial Marines Review

 

A franchise that requires an introduction must not be that great of a franchise, and the same can be said for a franchise that's falling out of grace. Movie-based games almost never impress, but it's hard to believe that a coupling between a...

Aiming is surprisingly authentic ; The way the Aliens look

Glitches throughout ; Graphically/audibly flawed ; Cookie-cutter shooter that cut too much

The biggest achievement in this title is that it works as a shooter, but the gameplay, plot, visuals, and audio don't do it any justice. The multiplayer lessens the experience even further by providing a simplistic experience that only deters players...

Aliens: Colonial Marines review: Or how to waste a great licence

 

Aliens are like Superman. You can't make a game about them without compromising the very thing that makes them so powerful. So the Man of Steel has a health bar and can be beaten up by Sub-Zero, and xenomorphs - described by Ash in Alien as a 'perfect...

Fun multiplayer ; Exploring locations from the films ; Meaty weapons

Flat, repetitive combat ; The aliens aren't even slightly scary ; Weak story, terrible dialogue

Aliens: Colonial Marines Review

 

The dull, unattractive Aliens: Colonial Marines is a functional shooter, but little more.

Online multiplayer offers some fun, anxious moments ; Interesting stealth level brings some suspense to the single-player campaign

Campaign is mostly devoid of tension and challenge ; Static pace and lack of variety lead to boredom ; Tacked-on cooperative play completely negates the narrative ; Dated visuals and assorted bugs

And that's Colonial Marines' biggest problem: enemies come, and you shoot them down easily, again and again. The game is remarkably light on variety. A couple of battles masquerade as boss fights, but they require no strategy and are just as easy and...

Aliens: Colonial Marines review – this time it’s war

 

James Cameron's classic action horror gets an interactive sequel by the creators of Borderlands, but how soon will you want it to be game over, man?

Great attention to detail by a team that clearly loves the original movie. Some effective scares and a welcome range of co-op and competitive multiplayer options

The gunplay is mediocre, the artificial intelligence weak, and the design linear and repetitive. Few gameplay innovations and underneath the atmospheric lighting the graphics aren’t very good

The whole idea was probably doomed from the start but this is a disappointingly slipshod effort, with a story campaign that somehow feels more old-fashioned than the decades-old movie it’s based on.
