Feels smooth as opposed to pounce 20 times to eventually get where you want.
Agreed, I got a bit sick of Aliens flying all over the map in AVP2.
AVP2 pounce attack was indeed horrible.
Too quick, too far, too quake/doom like.
But AVP 2010 is no way an improvement either.
The fact you can't freely choose where you wanna pounce makes you feel weak.
It's probably one of the first thing to be changed if there is mod support with the melee system.
Let's pray now SEGA will send us the SDK before the end of the year otherwise I fear there won't be enough players on AVP3 (PC) anymore and so SDK will be more or less pointless with the hype A:CM will do.
