Aliens: Colonial Marines is now available to buy on all major platforms, so Gearbox (the developers of Brothers In Arms) have unveiled a fantastic new launch trailer for the spin-off of the beloved James Cameron helmed movie, Aliens. Check it out!

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.

Aliens: Colonial Marines is scheduled for release on February 12th, 2013 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Crappy graphics. I tell ya!

Poorly reviewed. Utterly pedestrian fps. The review embargo obviously there to prop up pre-orders.

Woeful game.

Got this yesterday,it is quite bad.

However the good news is that the ending of the game completely negates the beginning of Alien 3 (the obviously worst film in the franchise)and the game is officaly part of the film series canon, so...yeah

1. Glad this site was up and running.

2. I pre-ordered this game. And judging by the negative buzz, I've got some business to take care of today. Especially since that trailer was beyond lazy.

Started playing yesterday. Could be better.

Reminds me of the updated version of Doom 3.

It's not that great really :( - as a massive aliens fan I'm dissapointed! Love the motion tracker though
BIGBMH - 2/12/2013, 5:03 AM
It looked so good a few months ago.
jessepostal - 2/12/2013, 5:14 AM
Thats a let down :( I had a feeling the graphics were gonna be a let down when it didn't come out when it was suppose to, years ago
ATrueHero1987 - 2/12/2013, 5:41 AM
smh, this is why I'm real hesitant about preordering games.
ABLEE337 - 2/12/2013, 5:58 AM
That's too bad. I was hoping it would be great. Love the whole Colonial Marines thing.
jessepostal - 2/12/2013, 6:06 AM
@marvel, ya i learned my lesson with resi 6 :(
Rothwilder - 2/12/2013, 6:08 AM
It is supposed to follow the movie Aliens yet,

1) How did so many Xenomorphs get on the Sulaco?
2) Hadley's Hope was vaporized in a nuclear explosion.

3) I got a preview copy (thankfully for free)

They had SOOOOOO long to get this game right and they didn't. Yet another chapter of fail in this game series.
ATrueHero1987 - 2/12/2013, 6:31 AM
Got a 4.5 at both IGN & Gamespot. There is no excuse for that. From what I read, people have been trying to make this game since 2001...I was in the 8th grade around the time they started!lol

This just like Duke Nukem Forever.smh
jessepostal - 2/12/2013, 6:44 AM
Gamespot just announced a new arkham game this year!!!!
jj2112 - 2/12/2013, 7:44 AM
I'm sure it won't be as good as the first AvP game.
TheDude - 2/12/2013, 7:56 AM
Seems to me they are just trying to cash in on the new Dead Space release. Looks like a crappy knock off
Paragon79 - 2/12/2013, 7:56 AM
Anyone know if they're going to release a demo for this?
IIIAdamantiumIII - 2/12/2013, 8:08 AM
How about you play the game ?
kappakappashred - 2/12/2013, 8:58 AM
they will never beat AvP 2 for PC, looks like this is just a rip off of the marine campaign
MrYurMomm - 2/12/2013, 9:25 AM
Only game I play is Battlefield 3, I'm just waiting for Star Wars 1313, that looks badass
IIIAdamantiumIII - 2/12/2013, 1:59 PM
I'm having fun with it! play on the hardest mode. People who play games on easy or normal act like they are " 1337 kr3w " and complain about how easy the game was.
but put on a more difficult setting they rage quit and bitch about the game being "hard". I'm more of a sony/pc/nintendo gamer not much of xbox guy but when ever i play cod on a friends xbox live.. its like ultra easy mode compared to ps3/pc players. If I were you I would Get the PC Version .
