    The multiplayer makes this game.

    Rated on February 12, 2013 by mrephunk

    Few glitches aside(and gone once patched) the MP feels like a true aliens game. You have to really work as a team, both as Xenos and Marines. The human controlled aliens can be really scarey and if pl...

    Aliens: Colonial Marines is just a pitiful shell of what it could have been in this rich and immersive universe.

    Rated on February 12, 2013 by Ledah

    Aliens: Colonial Marines is a shooter like every other, with glimpses of suspense and some sense of darkness flowing in the environment almost resembling what it could have been. The Aliens are ba...

    Aliens: Colonial Marines is like a blind Internet date gone horribly wrong. She looked good in the photos and from what you could tell from your brief chats, showed promise that she could be something...

    Rated on February 12, 2013 by Fruitymachete

    The graphics look outdated and the story could have been better but i really liked the atmosphere. Sure the A.I. wasn't that smart but it had some good scares. Like on the map The RAVEN. I didn't actu...

    Ok guys, a lot of people have been pohooing this game based on a couple of minute details that are easily changed. First of all, the review was not impressed with how easy the game was. However, if ...

    It's a fun game for those who want to be dropped on LV426 for a good shoot out!

    Rated on February 12, 2013 by amtifosi

    If you a fan of the Movie ALIENS, and want to be dropped on LV426 for a good firefight, you will like this game. Although seeing the movie makes the game somewhat predictable, as in, you already know ...

    Boring and a big letdown

    Rated on February 12, 2013 by Sid

    I expected more from Gearbox this game does not even seem fit to have been produced by the same people that make Borderlands. Things I can not stand: 1. Lack of NPC's you care about 2. Aliens are...

    I've waited for this game since I was a child but no, instead I get the harsh reality of growing up playing this garbage

    Rated on February 13, 2013 by juniperlll

    I don't think I've ever been so mad and disappointed at a game in my life. I am not exaggerating. This is HORRIBLE. Ever since I was a kid and saw Aliens I have loved it, quoted it, and bought it on e...
