The popularity of the movie “Prometheus” led to a resurgence in the interest of the “Alien” franchise. While that movie is not a direct prequel to the movie franchise, it does take place in the same fictional world. Fans who are eager to learn more about that fictional world can pick up a copy of Aliens Colonial Marines game
, which gives fans an inside look at that world.
This will easily be one of the best first-person shooter games in history excluding Call of Duty Black Ops 2 (we all know that the Call of Duty Black Ops 2 release will most probably be listed as one of the best first-person shooters) . The game lets players pick one of four characters to play: Cpl. Hicks, Sgt. Apone, Pvt. Hudson or Pvt. Drake. Each of the characters had major roles in “Aliens,” the second movie in the franchise. As you work your way through the game, you get access to new weapons. One of the weapons that is most exciting to fans is the flamethrower used by Ripley, the iconic character played by Sigourney Weaver in four movies. The game also comes with a customization pack, which lets you change the look of your character. You can change almost anything about the character, including hair, body type, clothing and weaponry.
The game starts at the end of “Alien 3” with Corporal Christopher Winter leading a group of military personnel on a hunt for Ripley. Several locations in the game come directly from the movies, including the ships. You can pick up different weapons hidden inside the game, including a pulse rifle, RPGs, shotguns, robotic sentry turrets, smartguns and pistols. There are also torches hidden around the game, which you can use to close off doorways.
One of the best features of the game is the multiplayer option because you can play online or play with others in the same room. You can play with up to four players online as long as you have an Internet connection and any account required by your game system provider. The two-player live option lets you play the game on a split screen with another player in the same room.
The Aliens Colonial Marines game is a must have game for anyone who enjoys the movies. Like many other shooter games, you start out with basic weaponry and skill levels. As you kill aliens and work your way through the game, you earn points that you can exchange for new weapons and upgrades to your character. With hours of gameplay, it’s challenging enough for advanced players and beginners.
