Damn it. I knew it. We all knew it. I would've picked extremely well-done Aliens over all of the extra stuff like weapon attachments that look like they were taken straight from a COD game and slapped onto a pulse rifle.
I hear you. It's no fun if the Aliens themselves are so rubbish. Every gameplay vid i've seen so far have them running around like idiots, easy targets. I am literally fed up with having them as dumb canon fodder and not the intelligent, sneaky, scary lethal killers they used to be. This game could have been a step above if they nailed the AI. That's what makes the Aliens so cool. They aren't- and shouldn't- ever be as the generic video-game enemies seen here.
It makes me sad to see them literally running towards you as you shoot them straight on, not doing anything and accepting death like morons. So much for the "perfect organism".
Ahh..well, i won't cancel my pre-order, i'll still play this game, but my expectations/reservations have been severely "demoralized", as Hudson would say.
