We’ve waited seven years for this. First announced by Gearbox back in 2006, Aliens: Colonial Marines has been through something of a development hell, suffering delay after delay. But now it's finally emerged from the shadows like a sneaky Xenomorph, it’s bound to be a surefire hit, right?
Look, we’re not gonna tease you. As we’re sure you’re already aware, Aliens: Colonial Marines is crap. Following on from James Cameron’s classic 1986 sci-fi action horror, and developed at least in part by the people that brought us Borderlands 2, it should have been great. But instead it squanders every ounce of its potential.
But what makes it so bad and just how awful is it?
