Doesn't look like it pays much attention to the whole 'acid for blood' part of the Aliens universe, and really... hordes of them running down your team is the wrong way to go about it. Should be less enemies, more deadly and harder to kill. More suspense, less constant action.
That's like, your opinion, man, but I welcome more large-scale depictions of this universe. Just because the original films were low-budget and couldn't depict a lot of xenos does not mean that's the mold that everything else in the franchise has to fit. You got your slow suspense in the last good game, let us have a[nother shot at a] good action game.
They clearly depict in the movies, just killing one Alien release acid that burns holes through multiple decks of a ship. Killing them en mass would dissolve entire buildings. The entire concept of this flies in the face of the actual lore.
As far as 'a good action game', there are countless games in the 4 player co-op mold from the Left 4 Dead series, to the Zombie Army series, World War Z or the upcoming Back 4 Blood. There are, on the other hand very, VERY few co-op games that use suspense or stealth, like GTFO.
