Aliens: Colonial Marines (A:CM) is a videogame that received mostly poor reviews when it was released on February 12, 2013. Star Trek is a videogame that received mostly poor reviews when it was released last week. As they’re both based on science fiction movies and they both have co-op play, they compare well to each other. And having spent time with both, I find that A:CM is the better game.
I’m going to be writing a review of Star Trek the videogame for the PS3. But while waiting for my copy to arrive, I was graciously given a Steam code so I could get a head start on joining the fabulous co-op fray. That was the theory, anyway. In practice, I’m playing solo.
