[IGN] Aliens: Colonial Marines Requirements - Page 16

post #151 of 166
I've been around for a good few decades and personally, I think this is one of the worst .. Witch hunts..that I genuinely think is undeserving.. It isn't a great game by any standards and with the decline in PC gaming quality ( Games released in a poor state before being patched ) why is everyone so against this game?

I really don't understand it, my copy runs fine and my partner and I have been having a blast for the first 2 hrs of gameplay. Yet, there are so many bad reviews. Given time this game has potential and it'll only need some balancing / AI improvements to do so.

I'm torn as to how to describe it, in relation to my enjoyment. I liked AVP2010 but only the Xeno campaing, the rest I wasn't too keen on. It's alot better game than that, for sure! ( IMHO ofc tongue.gif )

I want to test it on my C2 9650 but then again I don't want to waste $50.00 dollars with all these bad review I'm hearing....

Good Luck. I hope you enjoy it.

Hang on to that collectors edition. I have a feeling this game is going to be legendary. I think we've only just begun to see the backlash. I'll stop dogging it, since there are people who are genuinely enjoying it and I don't want to be a jerk. Plus who knows, maybe it's brilliant and I just don't get it.

Been watching videos of this game, and it's just boring. The story has no flow, it's just "who are these soldiers and why are they yelling at me?" Oh look now there's aliens.

It's not a 50 dollar game but it's not as bad as people are making it sound. It does have a definite case of consolitis, low res textures, low polly counts and at times that detached and predefined Unreal engine type of feel (my own specific pet peeve) though it does have a nice lighting system, cinematics and stellar sound.

There are some good things about it like being able to play the campaign fully in coop, that and some of the L4D-like multiplayer modes, it's fun at times. My favorite is escape and survival. The game pays a lot of homage to the franchise which is always nice for the purists.
If the price represented the product there would be a lot less hate. The problem is that they are trying to sell this game at an AAA price.

Well I have had time to try some single player and multi-player by now and I can say I believe this is better than Aliens Versus predator,
heck I have already spent more time on this than I have on black opps 2 which I found to be the same old boring thing.

Comparing it to Aliens Versus Predator;
Graphics: AvP better
Single Player: Aliens Colonial Marines better
Multi Player: Aliens Colonial Marines better
Controls:Aliens Colonial Marines better
FUN: Aliens Colonial Marines better.
Overall polish: AvP better.

I have heard that the console versions are buggy as hell, especially the PS3 version. I have been playing the PC version and found no major issues with bugs.

Co-op is cool, Ultimate badass difficulty removes the HUD and 4 player co-op is cool. No dedicated servers is a problem though. The framerate chugs at checkpoints in co-op which needs to be fixed but nothing major.

Multi player is fun, 2 favorite modes so far are escape and one where marines have to destroy egg nests. Controls take getting used to for the aliens but once you pick up the basics you will cause some serious havoc.

Overall I would say the game deserves a 7.5 out of 10.

The Good and bad of the game IMO are as follows;

GOOD

-Up to 4 player co-op
-Xeno 3rd person perspective
-Interesting multi-player modes
-level up system for xenos
-Customization of your guns


BAD

-Graphics are a bit rough
-Alien AI is sketchy
-More action less atmosphere in single player
-Overall Polish
-No dedicated servers?
-It lets you carry too many weapons
-Limited online functions (eg cannot search a game by ping) Matchmaking only
-No real feeling of terror in single player, multi player can make you fear the aliens though playing as a marine.

I don't think any parts of it are terrible (pc version) but there are plenty of things which could be improved. Which is why it was panned so bad I think, it being Alien franchise it has a lot to live up to. It being in development for 6 years is a joke really.
I would describe the game as a pick up and play decent budget game.

I have yet to have my coffee so a bit all over the place.

yep i pretty much agree, although i seem to be the only one who has been realy drawn into the atmosphere of it and even finds it a little freaky when i feel like im being stalked. but as i've already admitted, and im pure Aliens fan and its hard to fault in my eyes anyway tongue.gif

but yeah, im pretty sure all the reviews are done on the console version, the PC version is much better imo.
