Agreed. That's a good summary of the reviews on it. The "in your face" melee combat is a change from you standard shooters out there. I'm actually glad it differs from the other AvP games. If it was just Avp style all over again then I would be bored of it as I know I'd be saying "I wanted an update in game mechanics" not just graphics. I'm glad the game went in this direction.
So fun. "trophy kills!!"
