Aliens: Colonial Marines - extended CGI trailer spits acid

Postby c97dem » 07 Feb 2013, 17:03

This is an old trailer (albeit slightly longer), from last year, I remember the movie "Moon" theme being used for it.

But still no word of a review, even just a time or date of when the embargo from Sega get's lifted! Not that I am not buying it (it's already been posted), just want to read about it and how it plays.

Moon was excellent sci-fi.
It's a decent trailer but the physics is wrong in places and neither aliens nor marines move fast enough, disregarding the slow-motion.
It's unfortunate the gameplay is completely standard moronic FPS and they didn't try anything really interesting. The aliens move at the predictable, now standard, slow and obvious, easily targetable. The predator prey aspect is lost, no pun intended, the exploration aspect is lost, and that was the real hope for the game standing out.
You and your team are not supposed to survive. Basic theme missed.
Sigh... oh well. Jump in a shoot things. Again. Pass.

Moon! That was it, it was on recently wasn't it? I couldn't remember where I heard it from :wink:

Anyway, can this possibly live up to the hype? Probably not, it'll be a half decent game but I don't think it'll blow my socks off. Hope I'm wrong, though I won't be buying it day one.
No need to be careful what you wish for, you probably won't get it.

I concur- Moon is a fantastic film.

As for Colonial Marines? It's going to be a case of wait and see- the premise and nostalgia factor have got me reaching for my wallet, the gameplay videos have me putting it away again.

There isnt actually an "embargo" so to speak, had a discussion with someone who works for a games website on the CM official forums last night....

Most places only received there review copies yesterday from Sega, so while no official "embargo"...Sega have been quite slow in getting review copies out to magazines and sites for review.

Still have been waiting years for this game, it has my money already, mates are getting it....so rock on! Even if it sucks the big one, I will still say I love it, cause i have just been so freakin hyped for this game (if i admit it sucks, will get ribbed for freakin ages over that lol)
