I'm just waiting for a player to set a trap, then wait for the Alien to walk into it from some hiding spot, only for the Alien's head to appear from right beside him. His last words will be "Clever girl"

The Alien was 'voiced' by a bird impressionist in the first movie. People do complain a fair bit.

Music reminds me Alien 4. Legs, jaws..now the music. These guys are definitely Resurrection fans.

The Old Man: Dick, I'm very disappointed.

If you are expecting a game where the Alien appears for 8 mins over 2 hours... This isn't the game you want then.

 :D 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 tape recorder (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

Again, everything you mentioned about the differences between the Alien and the AI Alien can be identified by the fact that in the original movie, the Alien only has a few minutes of screen time. No thumping sounds as the Alien moves? The original didn't move more than 3 steps. No roars or heavy breathing? Most of the time it's sucking on brains or on vacuum. Also, we haven't heard how the Alien sounds like when it suspects prey is near. We need some feedback from those who tried it out if the Alien becomes more stealthy and silent just before the kill, like a lion.

And regarding the authenticity, I think you should read up on more of the articles regarding the AI Alien development, since they distinctively said they could not just blindly follow the original, and instead wanted to create what most people feel the Alien should be like, a giant otherworldly killer in space. They only authentically replicated the environment to match the film, for the atmosphere.

As far as the footsteps go, they weren't loud in the other movies either. Though that probably doesn't really matter after all the emphasis I put on the first movie lol. I don't remember it making noise when it's walking idly in the older videos, seems like that was new in this trailer. When it ambushes the chick at the end, it seemed to be silent though, I suppose maybe it does go into some sneak mode in that type of situation.

Vocals wise, it was pretty much just silent when it was chilling in the wall in Alien, which would seem like a situation where it's just minding its own business. I'm pretty sure there's been a few discussions about whether or not the thing even breathes in the first place. it never made those low pitched noises when it killed people in Alien either. Actually I don't think it does that in any of the movies. Except maybe Resurrection ? ? I can't remember when I even saw it last. So I don't know why they'd feel the need to make it do that now. Nor do I see how it makes it more otherworldly, wasn't it already a giant otherworldly killer in space
