In a new wave of motion, thousands of gamers are saying they feel ‘cheated’ after they paid their R500 for Aliens Colonial Marines. The games demo, premiering at E3 along with some pieces of gameplay and a multiplayer death-match rig, showed off a beautiful polished finish, bragging about next level dynamic lighting (key to any Aliens game) along with stunning AI and beautiful graphics. The finished product? Not so similar.
Aliens Colonial Marines has been panned with almost universally negative reviews, many citing the graphics as one of the big, if not the biggest issue, along with the brain-dead AI and unfinished multiplayer. Many gamers believe they have the right to feel cheated and they deserve a refund on their game. Gearbox has yet to comment on their game, but many people are attacking them through emails and complaints.
In a recent statement, Randy Pitchford, CEO of Gearbox, the developers, said that “I did not lie, at E3 I showed off the game that was in development” he also went on to say that development was rerouted through many other smaller developers, leaving the game in the pieces that it is at the moment.
