I rented it the other day, and im enjoying it so far. The first level or so as the marine was fantastic I thought. I love the way they have lifted the sound of the motion tracker straight from Aliens
I was bricking it at some points. I havent had too much trouble with aliens themselves, but im a FPS nut so it seems easy(ish) to me (look, how patronising was that
) The Alien takes a while to get used to, but is great fun when you do, I try to think of it like a racing game (bare with me) trying to get a good line to a Marine and rip his to shreds. The Predator takes an age to get good with (well, a few hours) but agin with the Alien its just a bit of practice, and not acting like a Marine, being stealthy hiding around distracting people then ripping their heads off is great. As for the game itself, I dont think much of the graphics (why, oh why when making a FPS dont Devs use the Unreal engine?!?!?!?!?!?!) but the sound design is pretty good, although i can leave the genero-grunts, in a Universe packed with some great charismatic characters why did they not even give "rookie" a voice. Good game so far i reckon, although im glad I didnt buy it.
