You and your friends against the deadliest killers in the galaxy. Another glorious day in the corps.

Buckle up, soldier! Welcome to Aliens: Colonial Marines. Created by Gearbox, the critically acclaimed and fan-favorite developers of Borderlands and Brothers In Arms, this first-person shooter is steeped in the eerie, claustrophobic and terrifying atmosphere that made the Aliens films successful worldwide. You and your friends will become the most badass military outfit in the galaxy – the US Colonial Marines. It’s down to you to not just survive but wipe out the Xeno infestation.

Features:

Enlist in the Marine Corps
Bringing you a true sequel to James Cameron’s classic Aliens, get tooled up with classic Marine weapons including pulse rifles, motion trackers and flamethrowers.

The most authentic Aliens experience ever
Using authentic environments inspired by the film series including Hadley’s Hope, the Sulaco and LV-426, you will be immersed in an eerie, atmospheric world where any moment could bring your death.

Drop-in / Drop-out co-operative gameplay
The masters of co-op bring their expertise to the Aliens universe. Xenos getting too tough? Call up your buddies so they can drop in with extra firepower. The whole campaign can be played with a squad of up to four players, dropping in and out as necessary through self-contained missions within an over-arching narrative.

Loadouts and upgrades
Create your perfect killing machine. An extensive upgrade system allows players to customize their characters to play the way they want. Earn experience to get perks, new weapons and new looks for your squad.

I've been looking forward to this game since before I bought my PS3 in 2009. Sadly I doubt I will like it. There are way too many factors going against it for me.
Reasons:
1. Way too long in development, put on a back burner to many times
2. I am a huge Alien/Aliens fan, so the bar is very high.
3. Game is made by Gearbox, as one of the few who hates everything about Borderlands, this is just a bad omen.
4. The graphics I have seen in trailers/gameplay peaks really dont look all that great compared to many other games of this generation.

I hope I'm wrong, I fought with myself hard on pre-ordering, the collector's edition looks really awesome. Even if the game sucks ill still buy the collector's edition for the right price.

unfortunately for you, the 4 point you made about the graphics is indeed true for the console versions. the actual gameplay for the game is already up on youtube with walkthroughs of the actual game. Even the statue/ toy from the collectors edition for the game looks bad/cheap. I cannot believe they are selling it for $99.99
