A great map pack!FreeMan85 | June 17, 2013 | See all FreeMan85's reviews »
The newest DLC for Aliens: Colonial Marines is a maps only DLC. Contains for 4 maps which inspired by Alien, Aliens and Alien 3 movies. The fourth map sets on Sulaco which more like a game inspired map, then a movie inspired. Anyway, the new maps are good and huge. Nostromo map is a Survivor mode only map. We can see the major places of the ship like the main hall, the dark corridors where Ripley runs from the Alien, the dark and spooky cargohold. Also it has many vents for Alien layers, so you must stay frosty and weld the doors! Processor map is from Aliens and sets inside the atmosphere processor. It's very dark and big map, Alien players again feel the advance of this map. Sadly, you can only see the APC and a few familiar corridor, but no Queens lair or cocooned soldier/colonists. Fury 161 mostly mix the many elements of Alien 3, feels hot and dark. Even the color scheme is different then the game used colors, more red or rusty feeling. Has multiple levels, tight corridors and dark places for Alien ambushes. The only flaw in this map is the Alien nest, we never saw anything like that in the movie. Both maps Processor and Fury 161 can be played in Team Deathmatch and Extermination game modes. The final map is an Espace map, sets on Sulaco. You must escape through the classic ship corridors, engine room and tubes. Even, if the map mostly remap from the game it feels unique and cool. This map pack is a bit better then Reconnaissance Pack, especially for the movie fans. And if you have enough friends from Steam groups and forums you will no problem to play these maps. My favorite is the Nostromo map, has a lot of fun!
If you own the Season Pass you will get his DLC anyway, enjoy it, maybe the second best DLC after Bug Hunt. If you consider to buy this DLC alone, well go for it! Just make sure you gather enough friends who owns and plays these maps.
