Aliens : Colonial Marines has finally been released and in space no one can hear you scream unless you too are that angry that it’s taken this long to hit shelves. But now, after months of rabid slobbering from Aliens fans waiting for Gearbox Software to release their interactive homage to the series, the title, which was produced with help from original Alien director, Ridley Scott, is here.
Acid blood, wall crawlers and movie references alike, some critics are still slating the game already but hopefully that won’t put you off, and Gearbox have even released an Aliens : Colonial Marines launch trailer for you to fully decide if you want to play a piece of cult film heaven.

The best thing about these new Aliens : Colonial Marines screenshots? Everything.
Made up of one part wet your pants terror in its many unfamiliar lifeforms (as in games like Resident Evil 6) and 2 parts brilliant lighting effects (which will no doubt add to the intense fear), Aliens Colonial Marines is Gearbox Software’s attempt to rebuild and improve upon the last relatively abysmal video game tie-in that was was also based on the insanely popular Alien film series – Alien Versus Predator.
I really think that Gearbox can pull this one off, the game has had enough delays as it is (current tally is 3 delays) and we don’t want it to become another Duke Nukem Forever, do we? (sidenote – DNF was also a Gearbox Software game).
In space no one can hear you scream, but my neighbours will definitely hear me loud and clear when I wail in terror at what Aliens : Colonial Marines has in store.
