AusGamers giving it a 5.5/10.
A representative of Sega told Gamespot that "Sega can confirm that the Wii U sku of Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development," however developer of the Wii U title Demiurge Studios provided a statement saying it is "business-as-usual" at the company.
"We were very sorry to hear about the cancellation of Aliens for Wii U. It's business-as-usual here at Demiurge Studios. We are focused on making Shoot Many Robots for mobile kick ass and we've got another unannounced game in the works that we can't wait to unveil!"With the Wii U version touting integration with the GamePad, it is a tad sad to know that we won't get to at least see what the final version could have been, especially with the slight drought of games that the Wii U console is facing.

Andy "Butters" Bulmer, a self-confessed sci-fi nerd and huge Aliens fan took on review duties for us, and we apologise to him and his family for what he had to deal with. There's a game in here somewhere, but an Aliens tale proper, Colonial Marines certainly is not.

Aliens: Colonial Marines begins with an ostensibly abandoned ship, the U.S.S. Sulaco, recovered in orbit around LV-426. Players lead a group of highly trained United States Colonial Marines as they board the deserted craft to uncover the fate of the crew. They will have to fight to survive unspeakable horrors and their own anxieties as they chase down the truth behind a galaxy-spanning deception that places humanity at the mercy of the most murderous and deadly species in the universe. Aliens: Colonial Marines features authentic environments, such as the surface of LV-426 and Hadley’s Hope, weapons inspired by the film series and is designed to provide an exhilarating and engaging new chapter in the Aliens universe.You can check out the extended CGI trailer "Contact" below, or check out our game page for various screenshots and videos.

Today's clip features some corny drill sergeant-style dialogue, and a rather ill-fitting dubstep backing track, but there are some new gameplay snippets worth catching, a bit more power-loader action to finish with. Check it out below.

In attempting to create the game with an aesthetic and narrative that stays true to Ridley Scott's original Alien film and as an extension of James Cameron's Aliens, the devs mention how their meeting with Ridley about a potential Bladerunner game resulted in Colonial Marines, and how they are trying to capture the same cinematic style of the films.

seen and heard a lot about single-player gameplay in Gearbox Software's Aliens: Colonial Marines, but multiplayer reveals haven't been much more than brief exhibits of co-op and generic deathmatch. Today, however, the PlayStation Blog has crowd-sourced a bunch of questions from PS3 fans all about multiplayer, and while the developer is still stopping far short of full-disclosure, they managed quite a bit of new information in response.
Gearbox Multiplayer Producer Chris Brock reconfirms both four player co-operative with splitscreen as an option on the consoles and competitive multiplayer with several modes, but only mentions death match and won't commit to specifics such like map numbers.
He explains that this is an Aliens game and we definitely won't be seeing any predators, and unlike in the Aliens vs Predator games, players controlling the wall and ceiling-crawling Xenomorphs will do so from a third person perspective to reduce disorientation.
On the topic of customisation for both human and alien characters, Brock doesn't go into specifics but does boast that there will be "a wide amount of customisation in both appearance and abilities".
Aliens: Colonial Marines is due on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in Spring 2012 (US Fall).
