If you are expecting a game where the Alien appears for 8 mins over 2 hours... This isn't the game you want then.
Naw I just mean like how they're going on about the authenticity and how they're trying to replicate the movie and all that. Faithful environments, sounds, music, retro technology, "yeah man we like made this video then we played it on a CTR screen and filmed it with a
(edit: ?_? wut) a film camera", everything. Even this sound trailer, look at us trampling watermelons, this is so authentic. Then the alien itself seems to be veering away from that, when it's like the centerpiece. First the legs, for animation purposes, like ok, whatever I guess, no one complained about men in suits in the old games. Then the sounds too, it's gurgling like a crocodile and shit, which reminds me more of the direction they took the aliens in with the later sequels. The giga loud footsteps are kinda silly too, not exactly a master of stealth. Maybe it's meant to make it more imposing, and also easier to track its movement, so whatever.
It's just kinda silly though, like what's the point. The one thing they take creative liberties with is the iconic monster that people actually care about. I thought AVP2 is a solid game, even Alien Trilogy which is pretty much Doom with aliens. There hasn't really been a game that focuses on the first film though. Then this thing comes along and says "this is that game!" And I'm like neat, maybe they'll really capture that vibe of the first monster. And then it's actually a dinosaur that thumps around making generic guttural beast sounds. As long as they're spazzing out about being super deluxe true to the movie, I'll get hung up on the things that aren't. I mean the gameplay itself isn't anything groundbreaking, they're just riding on the presentation
