ive gotten about 7 hours total in this game, ranging from survivor mode, marine campaign, and predator hunt, mixed species DM
i played it on 360 at a friends house, with another TV, 360, and a copy to boot.
survival is very bare bones from what i can tell, the aliens really dont do much differently in terms of attacking etc, just the same thing over and imo...theres no welding doors, auto turrets, and the map is pull straight form the campaign we played. keep in mind thats only about 30min-45min with that mode, but it felt very bland.
predator hunt was decent, we played online against 5 others on jungle...seems the pred is fairly hard to spot, could have been the lcd is was playing on, but the only way i could find him was waiting for the laser and rushing him.. once you get the pred it is loads of fun,but that map was just too small imo. i placed second.
the marine sp is alright from what i played and saw, not anything that you wouldnt expect imo...some fairly good atmosphere, seems like it drops off in intensity farily quickly though
i see alot of what the reviewers were saying about level design and AI..it never really offers up a good variety imo...kill some xenos, haul a power node, hold off a wave, rinse and repeat. the game really does feel older in terms of development
based on what i played, id give it a 7/10 from fan's perspective...keep in mind, i havent played all of the online modes or much of the alien/pred campaign
true to the series character, models look great.
aliens movement is fluid...for the most part. their are some awkward animations, like the tranisition from crawling to standing.
far too linear
online seems rather bland and uninspired, but fun to me
AI isn't bright at all
opening fight scene should haven been playable imo, it sounded just like aliens..i would have loved to have just been somewhat involved with entering the complex and building the tension, but no.
i think rebellion is a talented dev, and this game shows, but they need much more to fully flesh out a game like this...it feels rather small of me to be a critic, but my opinion is just me being honest.
sega should wake up and supply rebellion with whatever they require next time around, FULLY fund this product imo for the sequel. they shown what they can do, and i hope it sells well. great attempt
