Oh, man, that amazon bundle...picked up the remaining Sam and Max games I was missing so far but, oh, man...
Anyone think Aliens: Colonial Marines is worth it at $6? The number one review on the amazon page is quite helpful since the author updated it every time there was a major patch for the game and he suggests that it's probably worth it now. Any second opinions? A little wary since it was so poorly received by everyone.
The games is not THAT bad. I can enjoy it. The gunplay and ambient is actually great. What you get is lots of stupid errors of the scripted Alien AI, some bad scene animation scripting and some missing textures like in vent shafts, under grid floors etc.
Like Aliens attacking you and suddenly stuck freeze waiting to be killed and the story, well...
But then there are some scary as shit parts in it, too.
Yes, you can have fun with it, yes, there are better games and yes, if you can live with supporting a publisher with such marketing practices.
For now I can say Red Faction 2 is much worse, because this games get nothing right.
