Whilst Aliens Colonial Marines proves to be an fun shooter, it is merely nothing more than every other fun shooter.

The story proves to be quite interesting, but typical of the Alien franchise. I haven't completed it yet but so far it seems promising.
Game-play runs well - the guns used in the game, whilst not outstanding, do offer interesting play against the Aliens. It's nice to see that for once in an Alien game that the Humans have SOME sort of a chance! I do feel that sometimes the AI allies can be a bit dimwitted at times however, and sometimes the mass hordes of Xenos can prove a bit too much for my simple companion. Game-play can also be a bit repetitive - enter room, kill Aliens, regroup, enter room, kill Aliens, regroup etc.
The music and sound however are fantastic adding to what little tension there is!
Aliens Colonial Marines is probably worth a go, perhaps rent it first; certainly not worthy of paying the full price for it.
