^^What is this PC fanboy nonsense, dumbed down for consoles? you do realize there's a massive Quake following on PC? I gave up PC gaming long ago, and I'm glad I did, at least I can play the demo on my xbox without it being a bastard. As for the price, the game will be £10 withint 3 months.
No fanboy nonsense, just pure fact. AVP2 knocks this game into a cocked hat, for all the right reasons. AVP2 had a much better representation of the Aliens and Predators than this does, had more authentic 'stuff' for each race than this does and gave the players a more believable environment by allowing them to hide and lower their profile by crouching behind cover.
You know people keep latching onto that stuff, that having no crouch is irrelevant, but if you watch Aliens, the raw material that this is supposedly based off, the biggest shootout between the Marines and Aliens sees the Marines taking positions behind each other to get firing lines in place. Just trying to recreate that here, you'd be shooting the Marines in front of you in the back. Licenses are all about recreating the original material atmosphere, thats why this ability was in AVP and AVP2.
Needless dumbing down of the game and to flip this right back at you, explain to me why this was left out. What reason can you possibly think of that in a FPS, players shouldn't be able to crouch. In fact, name me one successful FPS out there where there isn't a crouch option....
My reasoning has nothing to do with PC elitism. I enjoyed Halo and Killzone, and the rest just as much as any other PC FPS. It's just that in this case, Rebellion had a fucking amazing heritage to live up to and they fucked it
by concentrating on consoles.
