I remember reading that somewhere too.

Also heard James Cameron and Ridley Scott had bad things to say about the game too...

I'm just glad I didn't buy Colonial Marines or well, any Gearbox game after Half-Life Opposing Force. :P

This one and halo PC were the only 2 gearbox games I bought. I'll never buy another though!

“The only other gaming experience that I had was I did a voice [Corporal Hicks] in the Aliens game that they made [Aliens: Colonial Marines],” Biehn says. “That wasn’t fun at all. I just didn’t really have any fun.

“It seemed kind of passionless. I think in movies, television, and the gaming world, you get some people that are really, really passionate, and some people that are just going through the paces. They think that because they have a brand name they’re going to get a hit game or hit movie out of it. That certainly was the situation on [Aliens: Colonial Marines].”

Yep, that was it I believe and I can't say I blame him, why put effort into something that is a failure?

I think Biehn was hopeful that Aliens would leave the door wide open for him to have a starring role in whatever sequel they ended up making.  I can't say I blame him for being salty about the way it all turned out.

I wonder if he's aware of the Gibson script and what might have been if not for the end of the Cold War.  Someone should mention it if they ever get to interview him.  ;D

Wow, that really says it all. So Gearbox were just going through the motions, after all the shit that they were the biggest fans ever. Compare this to how the Alien cast felt about recording lines for Isolation. Urgh f'king Gearbox...
