One of the reasons we were initially psyched for Aliens: Colonial Marines is because the developers had secured some solid voice acting talent.
For instance, there was accomplished acting veteran Michael Biehn, who played Corporal Hicks in the 1986 film "Aliens." But, like so many other people who worked on Colonial Marines , Biehn called the project "passionless."
In speaking to Game Informer , Biehn had this to say:
"It seemed kind of passionless. I think in movies, television, and the gaming world, you get some people that are really, really passionate, and some people that are just going through the paces.
They think that because they have a brand name they're going to get a hit game or hit movie out of it. That certainly was the situation on [Aliens: Colonial Marines]."
Yeah, the game turned out like crap but if you want to hear Biehn in a cool performance, play Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon . Not only is the game oodles of fun , but Rex "Power" Colt (Biehn's character) is a total bad-ass, and he does an awesome job.
Colonial Marines , on the other hand, was doomed.
