Aliens: Colonial Marines: Gameplay Video Tour

Hope is lost

Bagging the Aliens license feels like an open goal. Building a first-person shooter on the endlessly iterated Unreal engine also feels like an open goal. Somehow, with Aliens: Colonial Marines, Gearbox have ballooned the ball past both of those goals and it's currently bouncing around on the fold down seats in row Z of the stadium. Quite how they managed to get it so wrong is beyond us, but join us as we count the ways anyway in this gameplay-stuffed run-around.

So yes, a huge disappointment, but let's all keep our fingers crossed for Creative Assembly's Alien game - now that this is finished, we suspect we'll see more of the survival horror take on the franchise at E3. It probably can't be any worse than Gearbox's effort.
