[Polygon]Layoffs hit one of the Aliens: Colonial Marines development studios - Page 2

post #11 of 17
The worst part of the whole game was the extremely dumb AI. That, and the COD way of throwing the aliens at you. In the "actual gameplay" Randy was so proud of, the AI was even more intelligent, and looked like it could give an actual challenge. So very disappointing. This was my last straw for the gamin industry. I will not pre-order another game. I will wait until it is fixed, and fully patched, and is on sale.

Angry Reviews did a, um..., review of ACM. One of the clips they showed was an Alien just walking in place up the wall....they then played the "Hello my baby, hello my darling" tune....

I would have laughed if it wasn't so depressing to see.

EDIT:
Found it!!!

Seems like the Aliens series as a whole has basically been bad release after bad release since the original AVP 1/2 games of old. They haven't reviewed well at all, a lot of people keep hoping we see an amazing game only to be let down.

It's to bad because the Aliens and Predator universe is pretty awesome, it just hasn't translated to an excellent game yet.

This sucks. Those guys worked hard on this game and it was management that screwed the game.

If they wouldn't have done a "bait and switch" with the graphics, I'd have thrown some money their way (as would many others). They have only themselves to blame for the layoffs.

I love how Angry Joe is getting credit for that dancing Alien. That video was out a few days before Angry Joe did his and he also cut some of it out of the origninal
