The ultimate Alien is Isolation's H.R Giger interpretation.

Counter argument: no. His square jaw is ridiculous and makes him look blocky and lumpy, totally spoiling the sleeker, gaunt lines of Giger's Alien's face. And the digitigrade legs make it look gangly and awkwardly stretched

The face is a cliche monster face, yes- agreed. The H.R Giger's original "face" is superior.

I believe the "gangly" aspect's good though and the proportions, it's the perfect uncanny-valley
between the obvious man-in-a-suit and the unbelievable digital Alien.

Not unlike the AR version, on both counts.

I also dislike the perpetually hunched-over look, which is again typical monster fare.

The two jointed/chicken legs were unecessary.

I would've preferred a straight up recreation of big chap. But I can live with stompy.

Same. Despite some complains, it still looks great, at least on the games the aliens usually maintain their biomechanical details. Even on AVP2010 where they copied the predator design from the avp movies, they decided to follow the Cameron aliens instead of the ADI version.

Regardless Stompy is on the top of the aliens's portayal on videogames. But the AVP2 alien with a Giger skin mod looks pretty good as well:

Stompy is at the pit of the Uncanny Valley of Alien designs. Close enough to the original to feel related, but with so many little tweaks that really, really f**k with the feel of the design.

The two jointed/chicken legs were unecessary.
I've never agreed with you more about anything.

A true, agree to disagree then. lol

The appendage alterations <3
Especially the back appendages (& positions), shoulder areas, the wrists and hands.

There is something to what Sil is saying.  Stompy is not a bad design, but there is something oddly over-square about the chin.  Too wide maybe.  Definitely missing the lips.  There is something that breaks the illusion of the creature.  Maybe it needs more crazy drool..
