Yep, this game is bland as f**k. AI is also terrible in this game. Aliens standing still for multiple seconds when they come into the room at times, or your coop AI ignoring enemies at times and vice versa. It feels like a poor mans COD in the alien universe. The f**k yeah brofist attitude is forgiven in this case seeing as the marines were like this in the actual movie.
Yup, I'm on that boat too. Discouraging, but not surprising.
This in the quote ^ could see it coming a mile away. Even from the earliest gameplay footage, it was clear that the AI comrades joining you will do nothing to advance the terrible NPC counterparts in most games. Awful pathing, no reaction to enemies, the environment, etc...
Most games suffer from this same problem, heavy-hitters like CoD included. I just got through about 8 hours of eye-rolling over Black Ops 2's sometimes-terrible NPCs. The game wants you to be this badass soldier when you can't even count on your teammates to perform basic combat maneuvers like covering you while you move or looking a different direction than everyone else. It's par for the course with shooters these days, but just damn discouraging.
Sad that with all of the work that's gone into this, the game still seems to suffer from these most fixable (and non-Alien related) issues.
