Hey, Just letting everyone know that Aliens Colonial Marines is
$40 for the vanilla copy
$70 for the CE.

For both PS3 and 360.

Im still on the fence with the game, having seen the reviews. This is my first thread creation, so if there is a duplicate, you will have to forgive me.

Even if the reviews don't sway you against buying it, the review score alone is enough to know the game will be $10 in a couple months. Makes no sense in my opinion to pick it up now at $40.

It's actually not a bad game. Not a AAA title for sure, but still okay. It bears similarities to Doom 3 in the mood and control feel.

Game is far from the turd all the reviews paint it as, like preston181 said. Doesn't do anything inherently bad/wrong with the FPS formula, the art direction/graphics are true to the source material, the controls function properly...not sure what else needs to be said.

The story is hamfisted, and glazed with fan-service, which I guess is the games biggest shortcoming. That said, if you're a fan it's a fun romp. I'm glad I did pick it up at release, after seeing the initial reviews I nearly didn't, until I saw it had split-screen co-op for the campaign. Played through it with the GF, and we enjoyed the whole lot of it.

There is ONE just facepalm-worthy level with a "stealth focus", that I'm sure lots of folks have seen animated gifs of in people sigs already. It broke up the gameplay somewhat well, as a nice diversion, and I get what they were going for but...it came off as silly in the end.

I hope Gamestop keeps the habit of dropping new release prices by $20 for a week....I want to get Tomb Raider at this price!

You bought the CE at full price? If it's still sealed, try returning it maybe?

Waiting for the CE to hit 10...maybe 20 because of what it includes.
1 John 1:7,9
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

I'd actually get the CE for $30, because I'm a local co-op whore.

To each there own but this game was so buggy and unfinished and had some good but so much of it was broken and unfinished. The hardest setting was to easy to. I love shooting buggy ai that keeps running against things. Duke sucked some liked most did not why the price took a plunk into the toilet fast. I am not gonna debate this in the end it does not matter. I put 50 or so hours in to 1000 and sell the junk before it spread the buggy virus. I give games a full chance and ignore eviews and find out myself. This game is a bloody green mess.

Ok i had to much sugar now i will go play a real game called life. I sure miss candy land she was so fine.

Muhaha this junk worth 10-20 tops in my eyes.

I played it at my buddy's house and I have to say it is plain awful. He ended up returning it. It's largely unpolished, unfinished, and sometimes unplayable to say the least. And blind aliens. It's so stupid.

This is as good, and as bad, as it gets. Criken also has 2 more videos about it so check those out as well.

I rather have the E3 Demo than Gearbox's Final Product.

I'll be waiting for the eventual price drop to $3-5 at Best Buy and the possible DOTD. And if that happens, I'll go ahead and buy a couple copies for my enjoyment. Gotta love that Box Art though.

Oh right, that opening in the docking tube with the grenade....yeah....

Angry Joe's review actually has some good points. He fucked up saying Sulaco though, lol.

*edit*
Watched the whole thing, and on second thought, his review is on the level. Wasn't convinced he actually knew what the Fuck he was talking about until he mentioned a Red Vs Black Xeno mode should have been included, and such an suggestion could only come from a hard-core fan. The game is overall a lukewarm attempt to capture the film experience, and could actually be summed up as "Aliens: Missed Opportunities Edition". Also holy crap, I had myself on media blackout for the game leading up to its release to avoid spoilers...those awful self-wankery marketing clips from Gearbox Angry Joe had in his review! /vomit

That CE will probably dip to super low levels in the coming months, then sky-rocket like the AVP2010 Hunter Edition did. Will probably buy another one around the 30-40 level.

If you buy it, play with friends, and if possible, on PC.

Angry Joe knows his stuff. :lol: He even made a video on why Aliens: Colonial Marines was going to be badass (before the debacle of course)

Thanks for posting that other video Olengie. I can totally see how the hype machine helped create such a totally disappointing reaction from everyone now.

I'm still in the minority I suppose, because I enjoyed the SP campaign just fine (and Duke Nukem Forever's too, for that matter). Curious what they're going to offer as DLC down the line...aside from the first Horde-Mode pack.

I did manage to run into the SAME bug in both the PS3 & PC versions: during one sequence where you're required to weld doors shut to slow a larger Xeno, the final door popped open after the weld animation finished. The enemy still pounded on the area like the door was still there, but the doors were clearly open. Happened in split screen on PS3, and solo on PC.

Didn't see any of the hilarious/horrendous squad & enemy AI problems people have talked about, actually thought the AI was par for the course in current-gen shooters. Maybe I'm just lucky?

This thing is mine the second it hits $20, I really wanted that Xeno statue, I was very disappointed when I found out how bad it was.
