SEGA announces that Aliens: Colonial Marines is now available worldwide, offering a new first-person shooter set in the Aliens sci-fi setting for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, with a WiiU edition coming at some future date. Here's the official launch trailer for the game, and here's word:
SEGA® of America, Inc., SEGA® Europe Ltd., Gearbox Software and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products® today announced that its highly buzzed-about blockbuster Aliens™: Colonial Marines video game is now available on store shelves across the globe for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows® PC. A release date for the announced Wii U™ version will be revealed at a later time.
Pitting players against the universe’s deadliest killing machine, the Xenomorph, Aliens: Colonial Marines is the official video game continuation to one of Sci-Fi’s most renowned movie franchises. As the authentic addition to the ALIENS canon, the game’s stunning visuals and adrenaline pumping action will deliver a breathtakingly immersive four-player drop-in drop-out cooperative campaign and four expansive competitive multiplayer modes – Escape, Team Deathmath, Survivor and Extermination.
I LOVED that game. I kept hoping the games after that would be even close to that level of goodness. And I liked it also for the story and how you played each race. For instance how with alien you started out as a little crawler, and worked your way up the lifecycle chain. Edit: I may be thinking about AVP2, not sure.

THATS what we should do...we'll have a game club where you have to play through as much of a game as you can, only we'll pick the worst one possible. Whoever gets the farthest (with screenshot) "wins".
Isn't that kinda what's done at the desert bus fundraiser?

Then this must be a GREAT GAME! RUN OUT AND BUY IT NAO!
(yes I get what you are saying, but you can at least get a general tone out of reviews, and a feel for if its a category you will like. And in this case, the metacritic scores from PLAYERS are actually WORSE than the ones from the all these uncommon bad reviews, if you can believe that)
