Aliens: Colonial Marines was announced a while ago and the buzz had begun to circulate after its trailer was released and after we gave you the extended trailer to see, which featured some clips of gameplay. We then saw the game appear at E3 where the demo was shown.

The first impressions from the folks at Gouki are that the look and feel for the game in terms of its likeness to the surroundings in the film are great. They say that any fans of the film will be able to easily recognise the blueprints of the buildings.

The E3 demo shows that there will be 4 player online co-op mode which Gouki say looks very good. They also managed to sneak a peak at some custom designs on the armour for some of the other co-op players which suggests that there may be custom armour designs for different players to choose and use.

The demo showed various features of the game from firefights to simple gameplay and the impression we get from Gouki is that the game looks exciting. For any fans of the film series this may be one to add to the collection, in fact even people who haven’t watched the films should enjoy the game. For full details check out Gouki.
