When gearbox got too test the game they where about to release they where apparently fuming with what the other Dev company had done with the game.

Just look at what they said the game looked like and what we got.

so glad i avoided this game.

should have been sold for 10-14USD not the 70USD Asking price (For australians).

aside from the sound effects everything else is so bad.

and the story is a joke lol what a stupid ending...and the fact that someone from the previous alien movies survives....makes no sense...

Probably funneling funds from this game into Borderlands 2.

I've lost all respect for Gearbox. So glad I didn't get around to pre-ordering this turd.

Finally beated the game after just 3 days.

Anyway despite all the negative posts and reviews, the game is as good as Aliens VS Predator 2010, great storyline set in middle of Aliens and Alien 3. Surprised to see Hicks alive and the end came with a cliffhanger after Bishop said "We got everything" after downloaded data from a damaged Bishop clone.

It made me wondered why Gearbox changed the graphics artworks and models in the final version. They should leave it alone from the demo and built from here to the final, not build from scratch! The graphics and models from the demo was much better than the final version.

I hope to see a sequel of Colonial Marines in future to take down Weyland-Yutani Corp.

Think I will start the game again with Ultimate Badass difficulity and get every audio logs, dog tags and legendary weapons.

Well modders have already set about this game. I already got a DX11 patch running and somebody has already started work on a high res texture pack.

DX11 Patch >CLICK ME<

Texture Pack >CLICK ME<

For anybody that's interested here's a picture of the ground on the very first hanger you come too, As you can see theirs a massive improvement, Keep in mind this texture pack is in a very early stage.

This game gave me the impression that gearbox put their interns to work on it, and allowed them access to their experienced devs for advice and some coding. Basically a low budget game but becuase it comes out of a good studio with excellent resources it can pass as something more than a basic low budget game. Of course I have no idea but that's how it feels anyway.
