I guess it isn't exactly fair to call the game complete rubbish… Unfortunately thats what Aliens Colonial Marines is. Given Gearbox Studio's other titles of late (notably Borderlands 2), AMC represents a considerable failing, where Borderlands 2 has its art style for character, AMC suffers from being ugly (poorly animated characters (clipping during cutscenes for example), a bad case of one color palette reigns supreme), boring (Tends to require more extreme difficulty to make the enemies a threat), and cringe worthy dialogue combine to make this an imminently forgettable game. That being said, where a vaguely redeeming feature exists is the games Multiplayer, allowing players to be marines or the Xenomorphs (sadly however the Xeno's only have three “classes” in multi), the game features a vaguely RPG like equipment/skill progression tree allowing for customizable loadouts for both factions, unfortunately it still feels like its trying to be Call of Duty.

I'd give it a one star, but multiplayer and upcoming DLC/patches MAY redeem the game (unlikely but stranger things have happened), though the $39.99US pricetag for the season pass might be a bit too much to swallow after forking out for this.

"If you pay $150 for this, you deserve it."

If this game was released 8 years ago on the original Xbox, it would still be a horrible, unplayable, bug-riddled mess of a game with a plot and dialogue that makes even the worst fanfiction look like classical prose.

Avoid like the plague. Actually, even contracting the plague is probably more fun.

"Everything I hoped it would be"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

There are a few sites on line that are calling this game an overhyped bug-ridden mess.

It isn't.

This game had a big patch update on launch day, which seems to have fixed most issues that people had issues with. I'm running it at maximum settings and my system is jogging along, having a ball with it. The graphics are fine, the enemy AI is nasty (aliens will try and eat your face – a lot). This is what I expected, and matches the movie canon exactly.

The additional content in the collectors edition is great, some cool things to go on your wall, and clothes (the Colonial Marines patches were great!)

The statue that came with it is a great addition to any gamers bling collection.

I can't wait to get into co-op and multiplayer – this game was well worth the purchase and the early moaners on some review sites need to try again.
