A:I's game engine is absolutely superb, but I wish to God they'd correct the lip-synch issue and add player reflections and shadows. :-\

I second that.

It's great because it looks awesome and runs on older systems still on high settings.

The issues were adressed well already, but those are minor issues.

Yeah, that is one thing I noticed and could not help be slightly disappointed about, Amanda casts no reflection, this would not be so bad if it wasn't for the fact that Amanda frequently picks up space helmets and holds it in front of her, then there is the fact she has no shadow, this could have been a good mechanic, having to hide your shadow as well yourself. However, I still loved the game and since its CA's first time, I can't hold it against them. It beats both A:CM and AVP2010 easily. I love this game a lot.
