Aliens: Colonial Marines - Xbox 360

Fight the fear in Aliens: Colonial Marines as you battle Aliens, humans, glitches and boredom in this generic first person shooter based on the movie Aliens. It's a bug hunt.

I actually really liked this game. I got to blow aliens away and the game is full of references. Very cool, especially for fans.

Meh... Generic fps with an Alien skin. Only die hard Alien fans should consider picking it up. It has some cool customization features, but that's about. Terrible AI but enjoyable with coop. If you find it dirt cheap, get it.

Well, we all can only hope that Alien: Isolation will be better, who knows, maybe not.

i was so hyped by the developer diaries and the trailers that were posted, but disappointed when the reviews came out. I thought, "no it can't be. they're lying." well they weren't lying, it is as bad as everyone says. I was very bored of the game, it glitched out on me very frequently with AI that was laughably bad. I'm usually tolerant of glitches because almost all games have them, but this was unexcusable and made me really watch the next game with caution

Aliens colonial marines was bad but it didn't suck i had fun with it but some parts of it seemed like more COD than aliens but it did have a pretty dull story at some points the game had miner glitches it had your classic aliens weapons from the movie but i have a feeling that the new upcoming aliens game is gonna have a rich story and most of the glitches in the last installment will be addressed a 3.5/5

I think it`s a decent shooter but a bit too rushed and they used the wrong franchise but it`s not as bad as people want you to believe. It has nice details but unfortunantly it also has a lot of screen tearing. On the other hand the controls are fairly good,

Is 'Aliens' by James Cameron an action film or a horror film ? How you answer this may determine what you expect from this game. To me 'Aliens' has always been an action film, not a horror film. As ACM is based on Cameron's version I fully expected this to be an action game, not a horror game. With this in mind I found ACM to be a fun game. Does it have the same production quality as Bioshock Infinite or Borderlands? no. However I cannot deny the fact that I enjoyed playing through it.

I just finished the DLC 'Stasis Interrupted', which has a single-player campaign that clarifies what happened to Hicks. The story is told through three different characters on three different locations. Compared to the main game it has a more even mix between horror and plain action. It is unfortunate they did not make the whole game like this as it would have made the gameplay more unique. It took me about 5 hours to complete this DLC.

I really wanted to like this game. I was genuinely excited about it and it was my first ever pre order. God damn it!!! What the hell is this?!?! Shame on you gearbox!!!!! You've taken a massive dump on one of the greatest film franchises of all time. Even Michael Biehn thought it was crap.......and he was on the payroll!!!

The trailers showed an amazing Aliens game but the game was just another piece of crap. WHEN WILL WE GET A GOOD GAME!?!?

The E3 gameplay looked so good but that was gone and replaced with this crap

Avoid this like the plague. Not enough characters to explain how bad this game is but I will try. Teammates and enemy AI is brain dead, most of the game is spent in corridors shooting Weyland Yutani troops instead of Xenomorphs (so much fun!), dated gameplay design, unpolished textures, and underwhelming moments such as using the powerloader. This game was unfortunate enough to be in development for so long and not only one of the most disappointing games of 2013 but also one of the worst.

I really want to recommend this game but for full price I can't. If you find it at around 10-30$ I'd say buy it if you're an alien fan. If not, you're probably better off staying away from this game as the terrible broken AI really ruins the overall experience. But there are still a lot of things in here to like if you're a fan of Alien and Aliens, and the multiplayer is something I enjoy about it. Overall the game is not bad, but it's not good either and falls just above average for me.

I played through it on two different difficulty settings and thought the aliens actually behaved smarter on the more difficult one. Have you experienced something similar or is it just my imagination ?

 Panzer Dragoon - Sega Saturn
""Get out of the way you stupid Dragon! I Can't see!!" Is what I constantly say when playing Panzer Dragoon. That's the biggest issue with this game, half your vision is blocked by your character. If only they made it first person perpective or simple make the character you're controlling a little smaller. I never had these issues with StarFox, Space Harrier, or Panorama Cotton which by the way are twice as good as this game! The visuals are good for it's time and the music is great. Unlimted continues would have been nice since it gets crazy hard when you're half blinded." - Truxton4life

 Loaded - PlayStation
"Can someone give me a comparison between the ps1 and saturn version, i have the saturn version and i quite like it" - saturn185

 Acorn Electron - Electron/BBC
"This little thing actually ran Elite, It also has a vast library of games even more so than the BBC.To be fair most of the games don't stand the test of time but as a child this machine holds a lot of fond memories. Brought for home work used for games take that mum!" - harris77

 Paperboy - Electron/BBC
"The acorn port of paperboy, POO nuff said!" - harris77

 Crash Bandicoot - PlayStation
"One of the best games available for the original PlayStation. The level designs were colorful and quirky and the characters were lovable and silly. The platforming was supremely satisfying and there was a nice variety in the levels. Naughty Dog hit a home run with Crash Bandicoot." - Parker
