It's been like that since the first time we saw it, they've explained why they made it like that and they're not going to change it with less than four months till release.

Yeah, I know, and I... I don't care. :) I do not like the changes, and I don't agree with their conclusions regarding the animation of the creature.

Oh, and, four months? That's about three months more time then it would take to change the legs, and two months more than needed to redo animations.


Also, it was never an issue in AVP 99 or AVP 2 to get the aliens to animate smooth and run fast with biped legs. Never once had I heard anyone remark on the Aliens in 99 being "goofy" when they tore down a haul and ate a marines face off their face.

Back in 79 Giger and Ridley had their problems getting the original Alien suit to run without having it look "silly".

Guys working on Alien Isolation "ran" into this problem again and solved it by giving it digitigrade legs.

I'm getting more used to them. :P Dont mind them, now.
The thing is - in the film the creature was rarely shown in a full shot, and even when it was, then it lasted fractions of seconds. So, creators of Alien: Isolation had a bit of a challenge to overcome here as Alien is bound to be shown in its full animated glory.

I'm not that bothered by the legs, it may not be movie accurate yet in-game it just makes sense, it's a necessary compromise so that the alien can move around without being derpy when it's running around. These "dino legs" as some call them offer a lot more flexibility with what you can do with the alien.

I've never seen them run, personally. They just appeared. :P
