Alrighty then. Aliens: Colonial Marines. Almost everyone I know spent the best part of last week bitching about how terrible this game was and now it's your turn! I have a feeling that, despite the reviews, a great many of you still bought and played Aliens: Colonial Marines and I'm genuinely keen to hear your thoughts.
A while back I got the chance to play through some of the game and, even back then, I smelled a bit of trouble. Not to say I told you so, but yeah.
My main issue back then was how the Aliens themselves were being handled, but I distinctly remember the AI being especially shonky. I thought I was going crazy considering the positive preview coverage I was seeing on other sites, but I went with my gut regardless. Considering what I played was being hand picked by the publisher and the developer for journalists to play, and that was as good as it got, I didn't have high hopes for the game.
It appears as though I was correct but, despite this, I have heard a couple of my friends claim the game isn't quite as bad as you'd expect. These people are definitely in the minority, but they still exist! What are your thoughts?
