| Why all the hate?
I picked this game up having aliens being one of my favorite movies of all time. A few days later I read reviews that say this game was crap. And I was honestly confused. This game is great! I've played it with many friends who think it's great. So I really don't get all of the hate for this game. It has a decent story, great gameplay, is scary in some places and is one of those games where you look at your watch and you realize you just spent six hours of your day playing it. If a game can get me to do that, that's a good game. So don't take the bad reviews to heart. Please read this, play it yourself and see what you think.

Did You Know?


In the recent Titan Books EU outing Aliens: Bug Hunt. The M41A Mark 2 Pulse Rifles first featured in this game appears again in the short story "Deep Background". This story deals with the aftermath off the Hadley's Hope incident then continues onto Aliens: Life & Death and Alien: Sea Of Sorrows.


Pvt. Peter O'Neal: You make a fuckin' sound. Your brains are what they find in the garbage tomorrow, not if you understand asshole.
Pvt. Peter O'Neal: Bella, lay down on the table.
Pvt. Peter O'Neal: She had uh, she had one of those Facehuggers, it left a baby one in her chest, how do you get it out?
Weyland-Yutani Scentist: You,...


The developers of the game used the original construction schematics to meticulously recreate the sets of the movie. However the cryogenic compartment on the Sulaco seen here is half the size of the original, and contains half as many cryopods. (Too few, in fact, for the crew of the ship!) When filming Aliens, only half of this set was actually designed and constructed, and a floor-to-ceiling mirror was used to show the "other half of the room" receding into the distance. The developers didn't account for this camera trick.

Crazy Credits

Short written messages were made from Developers during the ending credits.

Alternate Versions

The Overhaul Mod changes up Aliens: Colonial Marines with upgraded level graphics, Xeno balance, weapon balances, surround sounds maximum out and all the Xenos & PMCs bodies remain on the floors.
