Re: Aliens: Colonial Marines.

Hm, I see the game is out, gonna watch some reviews to see what's cookin'.

Edit: Holy fuck, I knew this game wasn't meant to be great, nor good, but I wasn't expecting such low ratings. Metacritic score of 45-50/100, that's pretty bad. What I got from the reviews is that the campaign is short, repetitive and extremely easy, plus it's no visual marvel either. Think I'm gonna pass on this, wouldn't really have time to play it anyway.

Re: Aliens: Colonial Marines.

Well, at least we have a contender for worst game of the year.

And how come the PC version has the lowest ratings? The reviewers clearly said that the PC version is the best, since the console versions look a lot worse and have a lot of low res textures and screen tearing?

Re: Aliens: Colonial Marines.

If a big release doesn't get at least a 70 on Metacritic nowadays you know it isn't worth buying.

Different reviewers probably. They take into account PC gaming sites or PC exclusive reviewers that do PC and someone else does console so they're probably been harder on it than console reviews

Re: Aliens: Colonial Marines.

Gearbox should have a cut-off date for development. If something is delayed X amount of times, it gets chucked in the bin. This should only apply to GB though. We don't want to lose Bioshock and Last Guardian in this hypothetical of mine.

Seriously though, it's a shame that GB have tried to salvage two great franchises only for it to bite them in the ass both times. The Wii U version of A:CM sounded really promising.

Seph should make a GOTY thread like his movie one. Aliens straight into number 1 of his worst 10. See if he can play over 100 before the year is out

Re: Aliens: Colonial Marines.

I cant see how anyone is shocked. Playing the MP months ago it was so generic feeling, sure its just a MP mode which are usually tacked on but my eyebrow was raised by the fact we werent allowed to play as the aliens only dev testers were and you were told which classes to use during the MP.

Then nothing but trailers showing cinematics, no demo and a world wide release with no reviews or barely any previews appearing shows Sega knew it was going to be wank and so hoped to sell as many day 1 copies as possible before word got out

Re: Aliens: Colonial Marines.

I just hope Crysis 3 won't suffer a fate similar to this one. I know that Crysis 3 won't score under 7, no matter how much EA fucks it up and I know they will go for the hat trick after ruining the 3rd editions of Mass Effect and Dead Space.
