I found positives and negatives in that IGN vid.|
It looked like they started the gameplay from the beginning of the game, and there didn't seem to be much build up, it started throwing xenos at him very soon after going on board the Sulaco.
There wasn't quite as much dialogue and marines going "wtf is this???" etc, they seemed to just get on with business.
Meleeing a xeno is ridiculous, I hoped that there would have been enough feedback after AvP that they would not have that.
I noticed that the sentry guns identify between friend and foe, the players were running around in front of them, not like the ones in the film!
Looked like it was the Xbox version, and the graphics aren't quite as good as the previous vids, the character models particularly don't look all that detailed.
The positives though, it seems really atmospheric, the overall set design looks very good and lighting and sound effects really are great. I counted 11 levels on the campaign mission select screen, nice length.
The multiplayer really looks great. So much customisation, not appearance and abilities etc. He says near the end of the vid that the voice actor for the Apone mp character is actually Al Matthews, Apone in the film. The different modes look like lots of fun, in fact the mp in general looks excellent.
The fact that there's so much footage released must mean they are confident with it, another good sign. I've been waiting 4 years for this game, and imo it's looking very good, so roll on tuesday!
