Still no reviews or any word out. If they hold back reviews for this game, usually a tall tail sign than it will be bad. Ugh.

Some comparisons are saying it is like a "Left 4 Dead co-op". Hmm, now that is pretty awesome...and would be cool to play, had I known someone who would be purchasing this.

I have read some consumer reviews. Pretty much validating everything I thought about the gameplay. The graphics are not great, but it creates a fun L4D2 experience. Apparently the Aliens do adapt to your gameplay style (much like L4D). The story mode is fun and co-op is awesome. All I need is a solid rating from IGN and I'm set to buy it. I'm guessing a review will be up either Sunday or Monday at the earliest.

lol i got it and wrote it down....

Looking forward to adding another gamer on my list.

If you guys are saying this is close to L4D2... i might have to pick it up i only had L4D but never played much of it.

The fact it has a season pass and 4 DLC's planned has me excited as hell it wont just be a release and forget title.

I found two others but this is the first one I could find. He gives it a pretty decent review, pretty much points out what I think about the game. He suggests rent first, then buy if you like it. States the game is kinda slow until the third mission when it really picks up. No K/D online though? Hmm. Not sure how I feel about that.

Fans won't have to wait long for more Aliens: Colonial Marines, as the February 12 release of the game on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC is only the beginning!
Four downloadable add-ons are currently in development, spanning new campaign and multiplayer content. The first add-on, Bug Hunt, is a new cooperative multiplayer mode in which players take on waves of increasingly difficult enemies across three brand new maps based on environments from the ALIENS film. Bug Hunt is currently planned to arrive in March, with the remaining three add-ons scheduled to be available by the end of August 2013.
These four add-ons will be available for individual purchase or as part of the Aliens: Colonial Marines Season Pass, a $29.99 / 2400 Microsoft Point bundle that offers a savings of almost 40% over buying the content individually*. The Aliens: Colonial Marines Season Pass is currently available for purchase on Steam and will soon be available on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.
Bug Hunt is currently planned to arrive in March, with the remaining three add-ons scheduled to be available by the end of August 2013.
For the latest updates on Aliens: Colonial Marines and details about post-launch downloadable content, keep an eye on GearboxSoftware.com as well as our Facebook and Twitter.

I watched a gameplay walk through of the game. I tell you what, it looks pretty damn sharp. That's all I'm going to say for now. I expect an IGN review and critical reviews by tomorrow.

Consumer reviews, ugh:


"ok...just got the game tonight. Started playing, hoping to recreate the feeling i got when I went to go see Aliens at the movie theater (yeah, I'm 41 ).

Let me just say....take whatever popcorn you bought, get your *** up, and walk out the theater. Its bad folks. Real bad.

Take it from a guy who has been playing games since the Atari 2600 came out, through the Commadore 64 days, onto the Amiga 500, and then nthe glorous PC days.

Your going to be ****** if you pre-ordered this or bought ANY type of "edition". The graphics are bad, the voice acting is bad, the banter between you and the A.I. player is bad, your missions are bad, the aliens are bad, and to top it all off, you just paid $65 for a bad game.



Cancel what you got, take the money and run. If this game gets above a 6.0, i'll blow myself. Pictures will be posted !!



You've been warned."




Another review:


"I have just played this game and I am as angry as I have ever been. I have signed up just to be able to warn people about this game. It is unplayable, don't believe any trailer or marketing **** The graphics are pure 2003, the story and writing are pain inducing and the gameplay mechanics are so absolutely terrible it actually takes a while for it to sink in; you're playing thinking "a game cannot possibly be this bad, I must be having a stroke or an acid flashback" then you realise, to your horror, that it's that bad, and worse. Then the anger builds. How could they manipulate this into okay-looking trailers, how can they charge top level price for what is below-bargain-bin gameplay? And how could I fall for it? I hate everyone who is involved in the making and selling of this perversion of technology, and I hate myself for buying it. My mommy always said there were no monsters, no real ones, but there are, and this is one of them."





Ugh.

That's depressing since I preordered it AND paid it off fully.
