Review embargo ends at 1AM 2/12 PST. However some reviews and tweets from reviewers are starting to leak out. If you're excited for the game, you might want to hold off and hear the reception first. After all, It's the only way to be sure.

"I think – when stacked against technically superior shooters out there – a lot of people will feel like they’ve time travelled to 2008. Even then, there were better shooters knocking about. Aliens: Colonial Marines simply should have been better, and I’m genuinely intrigued to learn more about how the game ended up this way."

Been waiting for this thread... It's going to be an entertaining 48 hours.

The IGN video was the PC version, but people are saying that the 360 version is one of the worst looking 360 games this gen. I'd love to see video of it... and the PS3 version obviously. I'm sure that they are hiding behind the PC version for now.

I wonder what version most sites will use to review it? I'm thinking the performance difference may create a 1-2 point gap for many sites.

Still can't believe that after over six years in development (probably not continuously, but still) this is the best they can do.

I might consider buying it anyway
during the inevitable $5 Steam sale
.

Pretty much got my review ready to go, just need to double check a few things in the game first.

I'm guessing it's going to be reviewed pretty consistently, but we'll see.

The fanboy in me is holding out hope that the co-op and mulitplayer will make this worth while as my Collector's Edition has already shipped. I think I'll like it and not love it. Then again Dead Space 3 got panned by some and it's one most fun co-op games I've played this gen. We shall see. But again, I think this thread is going to be HILARIOUS!

well, writing was on the wall with this one... it never looked any good imo. makes you wonder what they've been doing over the half a decade this game was in development,

and to think Sega considers Alien one of their pillar franchises post restructure.

using the money sega gave them to finance this game on creating their own ip in borderlands, i'd imagine.

Give me proper Wii FPS controls with the Wii U version (meaning Wii Remote and Nunchuck support on par with Black Ops Wii, Goldeneye Wii, Conduit 2, etc.) and I'll buy it regardless of any middling reviews.
