First announced in 2006, briefly back in 2008 with a title, it is truly in 2011 that Aliens: Colonial Marines started its long and slow journey to get to our consoles and PC. After playing the first 5 missions of the game, we can say that it is pretty disappointing in most areas, even when you are a big fan. Visually dated, plagued with clunky controls (auto-aim can't be turned off and it's still almost impossible to aim correctly when using iron sight) and very poor weapon feedback, the list goes on and on. That being said, it's not the kind of game you'll stop playing once you've started it, well if you're not the demanding type that is. All in all, it is a rather mediocre title you should only play if you don't pay it full price.
