Aliens: Colonial Marines
Aliens has rarely had much luck with its video game spin-offs, but I was still hopeful that Colonial Marines could deliver an at least solid experience. How wrong I was. This game fails to uphold any sort of quality experience in every way. And worst of all, absolutely nothing of creative merit was attempted. It shot for nothing and still ended up a disaster. Aside from all but the most token references, nothing from Ridley Scott and James Cameron's incredible films makes the transition. The classics those directors helped create could very well be turned into a terrifying and unforgettable game, but this, sure as hell, is not it.
