I like this series overall, so it's interesting to see this... Hopefully graphics aren't the only thing they're updating, as the interface could use some love.
My only problem with the series is when someone claimed they loved Crisis, up until the aliens were introduced, because, if they were paying attention, that happens in like, the first mission heh.
I also liked both environments, and ducking under tiny bushes making myself invisible until they wandered within half a foot. And standing still invis to not drain energy, then toggling it off, silenced headshot, toggle on, rinse and repeat.
People are clearly complaining not about the alien plot points, but how the game shifted. You went from being an unstoppable killing machine that largely controlled the pace of the fights, to being hunted in zero gravity against Z-axis enemies that moved quickly.
I still really enjoyed the game, and defended it, but thinking back, I would guess that I'd probably stop playing the remake when the ice bomb hit. The game shifts from something excellent to something much less excellent.
It still lacks the frustration that the mutants created in Far Cry, though. I just remember the part where you have to run out and go through like 8 rocket launcher bullet sponges in a volcano. Easily the most I've ever reloaded in my life. That single moment almost ruined the game for me.
