No. All he's done is made a new account to bash the game he's never played. Play the game and judge for yourself. What he's doing is spamming every forum or article that says "Aliens: Colonial Marines". He's not doing anything productive, just being a waste of CNET bandwidth and giving false accusations.

I got a bad vibe from the previews I read...ah man I hope this comes up at least half decent... I'm not looking for a jawdropping experience, just something decent... but the fact there aren't any reviews out yet probably means it's under lockdown and games that are under review lockdown until the day of release are usually stinkers...:(

[QUOTE="billlabowski"]ouch.... maybe he is telling the truth and actually trying to warn us? thanks for the belief by the way, i know it's hard not to discount any criticism as some sad idiot with the complainy-pants on, but you are spot on, I played the game and just felt i had to warn people. I'm not bothered by the disbelief, i expected it. I scoured the internet for some kind of review before i bought it, I was picking up xcom, saw it had been released early and just grabbed it as a reflex. i have been regretting it all day. anyway, cheers mate.
Poor kid. Makes an account just to bash one game. I'll just leave this here for you.

No...he's not kidding. The game is actually that bad. If you were to look around the forums here, you'd see that he's not the only one who feels this way after playing the game.
I played the game, and it sucks donkey balls. I even said in my OP that if this game gets above a 6.0, that i'd blow myself.
Go ahead and be a non-believer. When the rapture comes, your gonna be left behind....playing your piece of s**t Aliens game, while the rest of us are saving our money for something better.
Or you could wait a month, and i can almost guarantee the price will be down to $39

I'm sorry to agree with you too bro. We got the game early here in Nz because of what happened in Oz and the game is okay at best. I love the Aliens franchise, but the graphics are old looking, the hit detection is a bit wonky and there are parts where you wonder how the f**k the team mates got into the colonial marines.
It is up to you guys though, but I like this guy warned people on New Zealand gaming websites as well that the game is flawed. Don't get angry, we just provide the other side instead of just listening to Randy Pitchford saying how many times he J****d his pants when he played the game.But what do i know? I'm just a grunt right :P
so the verdict seems to be in, and one of us was right. can you guess which one? funny, you flagged my comments and followed me all around the board, but i haven't heard from you in a while? metacritic score of 3.9 (missed by .1, but pretty close hey?) I would really like to know if you bought the game and what you thought. I got my money back by the way, and i warned a few people off wasting theirs. I'd say i've done my good deed for the week. don't worry about the apology, i'm happy just to have helped.

Sounds like someone is dining on humble pie tonight. Spoiler alert: it's you.
Is it really that hard to believe that someone played the game, realized just how terrible it is, and then came to the forums to warn people so they don't blow their money on it? Regardless of how hyped you were for it, the game is bad; and yes, I got it as well, played it, and completely regret it.
