Lets be serious this game is really bad for even a mindless shooter and it should not have been a mindless shooter in the first place. This would have been a passable game when the 360 launched but by even 2010 standards it suffers in every respect. Developer should be ashamed!

With the time in development the original cast members that returned and the hand in hand deal with 20th century fox this game should have been EPIC....alas yet another bad installment for the cursed Alien franchise. This game honestly is comparable to Duke Nukem Forever. I am a HUGE Alien nerd and wanted to believe this was better than the reviews were saying. In the first (yes, the FIRST) opening scene the framerate was causing skipping and jitters...the Characters were losing detail and showing pixelation and were talking like a B-Rate godzilla movie. When I was looking at the table where Bishop did his amazing knife trick I noticed the clutter on the floor was floating about two inches above ground and the shadows reflected this "height". The Scenes are very well put together as far as environment. However when you look closely at a gauge on the wall it lack any detail. The Aliens look cool and the glowing acid blood as you riddle them with bullets is sweet but the Aliens lack ANY "intelligence" (IE. "They killed the lights...") They simply run at you full bore screaming in droves and droves....and when I say "run" I am being generous. They kinda run/float and bump into things. Sometimes they even just stop and stare at you. When they get close to you, you can punch them and stumble them. Seriously...PUNCH an Alien.... The AI for the Marines is clunky as well. They kind of stumble around and get attacked. Gearbox outsourced some development with a company called Timebox studios who has a lackluster past. "The first two Alien films are steeped in mystery and anxiety, qualities all but absent in developer Gearbox's lackluster interpretation. Instead, Aliens: Colonial Marines is a shallow bit of science-fiction fluff with cheap production values and an indifferent attitude. It's forgettable enough to deem unnecessary, which is a grievous sin for a game in a universe brimming with so much potential"

I tried giving SEGA on last chance to redeem themselves and...They dissapointed me like they always have! Please SEGA, stop making games you ruin my gaming experience every time. And please stop making marvel games as well. SEGA just sucks all around.
