Word is: "It’s here – the footage you’ve been waiting for – Aliens: Colonial Marines! We have a true treat for fans who have been waiting so patiently (soooo patiently!) for footage of the upcoming SEGA and Gearbox title. We have an 11 minute video that details a single encounter in the upcoming game, narrated expertly by the one and only Randy Pitchford of Gearbox."

The highly scripted nature of the game is a bit of a turn-off, as it pretty much kills any suspense. It also looks to be very linear, as even the outside scenes didn't seem to offer any real freedom. As for the pacing, the video is taken from Act 2 and so could just be one of the 'peaks' in tension - don't forget that the Aliens movie actually had the most action of all the films, as well as a lot of atmosphere. And the alien blood definitely needs to be a lot more dangerous when fighting close-quarters, as otherwise half the menace is lost.

Still, I'm waiting to see more about the game. I enjoyed previous games they did like Brothers In Arms: Hell's Highway, so I know they can deliver a good story-centric experience.
