There's usually enough information to judge a game before it comes out. Previews, walkthroughs, interviews, screenshots, trailers, videos, etc. Pay enough attention and you can make accurate predictions about any game.

That aside, the game is inherently flawed already because it's recycling the same game that's been made several times already. Alien Trilogy, AVP Jaguar, AVP PC, AVP2, AVP 2010... the Marine experience is the same in every one. To make yet another game like that is just dumb. If you're going to make an Aliens game, you need to do something new and interesting with the license.

Pretty sure none of those games listed had four player co-op, they're also all pretty outdated. Some of them I enjoyed even though they were "recycled" from the previous games. AVP 1 and 2. They did get some of the original cast involved this time, for a fan of Aliens that's pretty big. Not sure why the obsidian alien game was canceled, perhaps it just didn't come across that well for consoles. I would have bought it too.

Tech demos like Crysis 3 er I mean games has us all pretty spoiled with knowing what's capable graphics wise. Just too bad that we can't have a blending of the two into one game.


This marine experience doesn't look like the original AvPs.
AvP was somewhat open ended, still linear but you could wander quite a bit, and it was just you. Quite, desolate, lonesome.

This doesn't seem that way. To its detriment.
