Sponsored: Aliens: Colonial Marines 'Kick Ass' trailer

Those waiting for evidence of just how far Aliens: Colonial Marines intends to go in regards to securing Private Hudson’s title of Ultimate Badass should certainly find it in this new trailer. Be in no doubt; the working day of a Colonial Marine trapped on a harsh planet teeming with Xenomorphs does not look to be an easy one. What it does look to be however, is a riot of gunfire, strobe lights and the enforced bodily detonation of a whole legion of unpleasant teeth-gnashing things that really do require a good dose of detonating.

The trailer has the whole gamut of Colonial Marine firepower – from pulse rifles to flamethrowers to Smartguns to auto-sentry turrets - being use with extreme and very messy prejudice. Also, power loaders. Turns out they break an Alien neck most effectively.

    I always find these "sponsored" posts darkly comical; they're written by the people who make the games, trying to pass them off as being written by GR, like this is the review they want for the game. In this case the unreferenced "kick ass" quote is doubly funny. The trailer itself is terrible; loud, obnoxious and moronic lines delivered cornily by someone who sounds like they're from the Duke Nukem Forever universe. Graphics look dated, gameplay is too run-n-gun; Aliens should be creepy and scary, not "hoo-rah"! I can't wait for the full review, I'm predicting 2-3/5, which falls a little shy of "kick ass".

    Remove the sound and the trailer's great - keep in the terrible "made for this trailer" badly-acted-and-written voiceover and the oh-god-not-more dubstep and the trailer gets unbearable halfway through.

    Hmm simple enough orders and hell no I am not in the right mind I like to shoot at stuff I should be running from. At least we get tons of ammo.
