Colonial Marines seems to be shaping up in all the right ways. It’s hard to believe Sega supported the project without wanting to slap the Predator license all over it (xenomorphs haven’t appeared on film without the Predator since 1997).
The rabid fanboy that grew up watching and rewatching Jimmy Cameron’s 1986 classic really wants developer Gearbox to knock this one out of the park. They’ve tried to instill in fans that they are very much enamored with this film saga, Cameron’s Aliens in particular, and Colonial Marines definitely has not experienced a rushed development cycle which always counts in a game’s favor (see: Batman: Arkham Asylum, a game made better thanks to coordinated delays).
We’re allowed our doubts though, Gearbox.
