After the events depicted in Aliens and Aliens: Fire and Stone. Aliens colonial marines is absolute crap. I bought my version on the xbox and what I saw when I played it for the first time was complete garbage. The budget is low, and the online multi-player and the campaign is littered with game breaking bugs and glitches. The AI artificial intelligence is absolutely terrible.
I regret purchasing this game.

At the time of writing, Bungie are “in talks” to add a matchmaking system reminding about the dissonance between Aliens: Colonial Marines’s.
I have fond memories of Aliens vs Predator 2 multiplayer, in which I most often played the part of a terrified marine, a coward really who should never have signed up, abandoning my team and shooting wildly at shadows whenever anything resembling an alien jittered across the screen. Four marines must escape, booking it through a level while player-controlled aliens, some with special abilities, attempt to eviscerate them.

Aliens: Colonial Marines review for Xbox 360, PS3, PC
Developed at Rebellion by the team responsible for the original PC classic, the all-new Aliens vs. Predator allows players to take the role of three infamous species: Colonial Marines, Predators and Aliens. The game features a unique three-way online multiplayer experience, allowing gamers to battle for survival and the right to be crowned the deadliest species in the galaxy. Each race will also have its own distinct action-packed single-player campaign mode, with a storyline that cleverly interweaves with the other two species’ paths.
Set on planet BG; a human colonist mining group discovers an ancient pyramid containing a dark and horrible secret. Across the galaxy, a race of warriors is alerted to the discovery of their pyramid and a hunting party is dispatched to ensure that it remains sealed at all costs.
Aliens: Colonial Marines hurt me in a way no other game has before. GTFO has no in-game voice chat or matchmaking system in place.

It’s clear that Gearbox wanted to achieve some of the tense situations that have become a staple of Aliens. The motion tracker’s ping plays a huge part in the gameplay, at anytime you can bring it up and see where the next horde of aliens are coming from. There’s a constant ebb and flow of silence followed by the ping of the motion tracker and then the chaotic onslaught. It’s fun at first, but eventually just becomes predictable.
The early levels of the game feature combat with cookie cutter enemy soldiers – it’s uninspired, the character models all look identical, and it’s not why I am playing a game with “Aliens” in the title. It isn’t until midway through the campaign that Colonial Marines starts to hit its stride with enemies and layout. Co-Op changes Aliens: Colonial Marines and how you play it.
While playing solo I found myself back pedaling quite often, the co-op made combat a more aggressive push. This is aided by a revive mechanic, while in single player you’ll die and restart, co-op allows a teammate to revive you, helping the difficulty factor. It’s interesting to see Gearbox’s influence in the design of co-op, with the main menu being a party system similar to Borderlands 2. Unfortunately things aren’t quite a seamless as we’ve come to expect. You can only start off at level beginnings, though you can jump into a game in progress.

The game debuted last month to reasonably positive reviews, but has been accused of lacking content. Really, this feature should have been in the game from the start. It should also be noted that the game has two pieces of planned downloadable content. A lot of money to bet on a game being good. This is the problem of the practice of pre-ordering. It is important, however, to point out that it is not the only game to have issues.

Sulaco-operation: Aliens – Colonial Marines Multiplayer
I am just going to come right out and say that this game is plain awful! I am a huge fan of the Alien movies, and words cannot express the joy that I felt when I found out that they were making this game. The best I feel is the old Aliens Vs Predator computer game.

Things To Do During The Infinite Matchmaking.
With this game, be prepared to deal with arguably one of the worst matchmaking systems on the planet. You can be the only people searching, but if the game doesn’t want to put you together, it won’t put you together. It is, therefore, important to find two people who can find each other easily, and have them as the party leaders.
