I'm not gonna defend it until I play it and see how well it's core mechanics, optimization, graphics, animation, and so on holds up. A Proper review needs to be proper.
The main thing I'll look for though, since it's a 4.99 game that is said to be "Pay and Own" is to see if they sneak microtransactions into the game. If it has MTXs, then I'll give that shit a 0/10.
That and wasn't it confirmed to not be a sequel or even a canon/EU extension at all? Thus Mr.H calling it a "Semi-Sequel" made no sense. Thus it's a Spinoff in order to gain money. Logical business move, granted badly marketed in the upcoming days before the announcement video.
And on the "Fans" topic. Not all fans think alike, and there's always subset groups in all communities. The people in the forums are all lovers of Alien/Aliens/AvP/So on; with the given differential. People who play Mobile games and actually want to play this Blackout game are no more or no less than anyone else, they are still gamers.
