Devs get lazy and think multiplayer can save a game. But it doesn't. Not if the entire game is bad to begin with. Give the game about a month, maybe abit, less and the game will be deserted online. Multiplayer can make a game last years if done right. *Cough AVP2* sure COD wasn't a problem then. But if a game has fun adicting multiplayer people are gonna stick around and continue to play it so long as theres reason to. Even something as basic as a leaderboard and 50 or so rank ups give people to keep playing, especially if theres a nice reward at the end of it all.

This game could of been fine without the singleplayer aspect and instead stay a multiplayer player team based shooter ala left 4 dead. Your your simple objective is to get to the other end of the level alive against eight or so alien players. Anyone played that steam game "Swarm" Gameplay like that where you place turrets and wield doors and stuff.

Alien Swarm? That is a great gaming experience.

It's a great free game. Four player coop experience, too. Another example of what could have been done with the official Aliens license.

It's allegedly turned off in 'badass mode', if that's what you've been using?

That game was fun as hell. I'd also say Natural Selection 2 has given a more "alien" experience than any true Alien game in recent years.

No score given, but overly a negative review stating the atmosphere was good but gameplay was lacking.

Quote from: TheSun
Aliens: Colonial Marines has the atmosphere... but not the gameplay
The action is very much a slow-burn — the first few levels are arduous and have you feeling your way through things.

Not that the Sun is a luminary of gaming reviews, the reviewer obviously holds the COD franchise to be the pinnacle of FPS (with all that suggests, he's obviously a f**ktard). and the review barely registers as a preview piece let alone a real review, but there we are, it's still an official review.

It's also about the only review many 'casual' gamers in Britain will see unless they buy gaming mags, The Sun has the biggest readership of any normal paper in the UK I believe.

The Sun's a rag, a joke of a paper. Most people buy it for the tits on page 3 or to make fun of it, I'm sure. At 20-30p it's a cheap giggle.

People were slamming this game last night in the pub. It's got a hell of a reputation.
