I liked the differing RTSesque styles between Marines and Aliens...
I agree completely. Its a shame they are doing it this way.
But I guess it was due to balancing issues. The last versions of NS1 were horribly balanced.
On the other hand I doubt highly that they are going back to the game style that caused games to last for hours and marines really had to wait quite a while before they got upgrades and started to plow through aliens.
They are prolly getting upgrades very soon and start owning aliens right away, like in the later versions.
That would suck.
However, its nice to see that they stay close to the old art style. It was perfect already. Felt a bit like youre in the Alien universe, and still was very funny without taking away parts of the atmosphere.This comment was edited on Aug 21, 2009, 04:31.
I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
