It doesn't look like anyone can make a good Aliens game these days.  At least this one has the excuse of being unfinished though.

I agree that SEGA should release it anyway as downloadable title.

Even early, unfinished, and without the player character doing much in the action, I felt more tension in that than the entirety of A:CM. I wish I was joking.

Ehhh... I feel as if they would've fallen into the same trap as most modern alien games by making their aliens rather non-threatening. Granted, that was early development footage but the aliens didn't seem particularly deadly. I guess it would be harder to balance aliens up against a squad that was perishable (otherwise, if you go too far in the other direction, the squad just becomes a huge hindrance, even moreso than your invulnerable buddies that get in the way in A:CM). The action seemed a bit rigid but I suppose that could be down to it being alpha/beta/whatever footage.

On the plus side, the customization looked very diverse and even although it was just a little taster, the characters seemed to have more personality than most alien/predator games.

Weren't they going to have Facehuggers infect a bunch of wildlife, and we'd get some new aliens?
