They botched this game up good. I have NO IDEA what went wrong since seeing the E3 2011 demo. Two years later and weâ€™re given this bastardized version of what was shaping up to be one of the greatest games ever. Every aspect was changed, the gameplay, the physics, the graphics. Huge sections that were shown in pre-release footage were changed and quite literally â€œf****d upâ€. Itâ€™s almost as though whoever built the final version decided to troll the world. There were a few days after release where I honestly thought the final version was an elaborate joke. Unfortunately, I was wrong, and this game flopped big time.
Words cannot express my disappointment in Aliens: Colonial Marines. Despite some great level design and an authentic Aliens atmosphere, it still falls so short of what it could have been. This is the biggest disappointment Iâ€™ve had in gaming, ever.
