In Aliens: Colonial Marines, players are part of a United States Colonial Marine squad and must prepare to face an alien assault more intense and horrific than ever before. Driven by a compelling and original story penned by renowned writers Bradley Thompson and David Weddle, Aliens: Colonial Marines will retain the atmospheric look and feel of the original films while leveraging next-generation technology to create an entirely new interactive Aliens experience.

Packing classic Aliens weaponry ranging from pulse rifles to flamethrowers as well as brand-new equipment and skills all within a squad-based combat system, players will become an elite United States Colonial Marine. Featuring claustrophobic environments, a brooding soundtrack, and a multitude of surprises and shocks, players will battle against menacing alien hordes in strikingly detailed levels that include the stark interiors of the abandoned Sulaco and unique environments created specifically for the game.

Aliens: Colonial Marines will feature a story driven single-player mode and an all-new four player co-op mode allowing players to share the chilling experience with three friends. In co-op mode, each player will assume the persona of a Colonial Marine and have a distinct role to play in the completion of every mission. Additionally, more multiplayer modes will be revealed later in the year that will complete the Aliens video game experience.

Storyline:
Aliens: Colonial Marines begins with an ostensibly abandoned ship, the U.S.S. Sulaco, recovered in orbit around LV-426. Players lead a group of highly trained United States Colonial Marines as they board the deserted craft to uncover the fate of the crew. They will have to fight to survive unspeakable horrors and their own anxieties as they chase down the truth behind a galaxy-spanning deception that places humanity at the mercy of the most murderous and deadly species in the universe. Aliens: Colonial Marines features authentic environments, such as the surface of LV-426 and Hadley's Hope, weapons inspired by the film series and is designed to provide an exhilarating and engaging new chapter in the Aliens universe.

 In space no one can hear you cry for what you just paid for!

Purchased on day of release as I am a big fan of the Aliens films. The last Aliens vs Predator game is better graphically. This was originally intended for the PS2 and you can see that! Poor graphics, poor gameplay and way to much money. It should have been released at a budget price.
AVOID!

 Awful. Avoid Like the Plague

My brother received this game today after pre-ordering and waiting many weeks in anticipation. He told me that it wasn't very good so to see for myself I went and tried it out and I have to agree with him, It's shockingly bad. The graphics look like a very early PS3 game and the gameplay is slow. I would have given it 1 star but I will admit on playing I was a bit jumpy, so the original 'Aliens' scare factor feel is there but once the Aliens appear it's just another boring shoot em up game. What a let down.

This is by far the worst game I have ever played! Graphics are similar to a PS2 game, actually cast your mind back to the first RFOM game and that has better graphics. I also lacks any real imagination and to be completely honest is so boring. I was actually so disapointed as the makers had spent a long time developing this and had also promised features that just don't exist. Im actually shocked (and slightly amazed) that the makers of this game actually sat down during the final playthrough and thought to themselves "yes this is fantastic, just what our fans of the Aliens series have been waiting for". Anyway you have been warned, rant over.

 I don't know if your up with current events.................

I recieved the game on Saturday and was pleasently surprised. I bought Alien Vs Predator on day of release a couple of years ago and was disappointed but this game is quite enjoyable. The graphics are quite nice although sometimes the Aliens disappear and the animation is quite juddery in close combat. Music and sound is quite atmospheric and emerses you in the environments. The guns are very satisfying and you unlock them as you go through the game and level up. There are also 6 unique weapons to find from the movies I think with unlimited ammo so it also pushes the nostalgia button hard. Have only been playing through the campaign mode and haven't played online yet but I had played it online at a gaming convention last year and thoroughlt enjoyed the experience.

 Worst Aliens Game.

Poor graphics, poor AI, full of graphical glitches, basically an unfinished game... this might have been an acceptable release 6-8 years ago, but not now.

I'm a huge fan of both the Aliens movie franchise and many of the previous games - AvP, alien trilogy etc. this isn't even as enjoyable as Alien3 on the Megadrive.

Such a disappointment, Gear Box Software did a really good job of misleading customers with various promotional videos and screen shots before the release of this game! what we were promised was not the game that was delivered.
