God forbid we have a game where the alien is a credible threat for the first time in over a decade...

It's all about balance. If it's too difficult it becomes boring, frustrating and repetitive. Too easy and it's just a great movie ride through the set of the Nostromo.

Personally I welcome an Alien thinking game with a truly unstoppable creature. How many times can you really outsmart a force born to kill.

Best sign so far that this game will be good is that fact that Creative Assembly has shared the game as a "work-in-progress" at events before it is released.  Gearbox did not have the confidence to do this with Colonial Marines because they were aware that fans would be upset.  From what I've observed, a lot of gamers that got a chance to play this already have been pleased with their experience.

My prediction is that most reviews will be favorable.

8 to 8.5 range. No one has really had many negative things to say about this game really. A few things here and there, but (so far) nothing that might drag a score down into the 6 or so range. GameInformer wrote up an article not to long ago about the editor had played the first 8 or so hours of the game and really enjoyed it etc. My only fear is the story and the way the characters interact with one another, i really want a cinematic type experience but I doubt i'll get that based on what I have seen so far. Crosses fingers.

Why the humans turned against each other btw? If they all team up they can kill the xeno one way or another.

Many gamers played ACM too.

You can't compare the little bits of multiplayer CM shared here and there with the hours of campaign and survivor mode Isolation has. It's obvious that Sega is trying to win us over with how open they've been with inviting people to play it.

I expect reviews to be released much earlier than CM as well.

The fact that the review embargo ends on Friday kind of indicates that Sega and CA have confidence in their product. Maybe it won't get the best reviews, but it sounds like it will be miles better than A:CMs reception.

Exactly. Hardly anyone played ACM. It seems like EVERYONE and their chestburster has played AI.  ;)

As long as it's a 7 or higher, then I'm good.  I expect lower scores due more to a weak story if it's not good, but I have no idea how the story plays out.  The embargo lifting on Friday fills me with a lot of hope.

I'm confident this game will be a solid 8. Did gearbox ever have the A:CM campaign playable to the public or was it always the multiplayer?
