I'll probably wait for this to drop down to $20 before I buy it, but I'll waiting with baited breath.

This game has been years in making and dropped few times and even almost cancelled alltogether. Didnt see much in that trailer that would make this to my "must buy" list. We get shooters coming from left and right nowadays and have seen Aliens games many times last 20 years.

I have to say that I just don't understand that at all. I thought that trailer looked awesome myself, far higher in quality than any offering in the Aliens universe that we have seen to date.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

But that is exatcly my point. You talk about quality ie. graphics of trailer. I talk about gameplay.

I think the atmosphere that the game seems to have puts it up a few places.

Yes but even with a trailer that looks good, or bad for that matter, you can't possibly make a judgment on the gameplay yet. A demo is needed for that at the least. And you can't base it on previous games because they are not this game. All the trailer does it show the possible potential of the game, not if it is actually good or not. Now if a demo comes out and is just meh like the rest of the game, I will be the first one to say it is meh. But don't rule out a game before you get to try it at least.

In my mind I think this game will be at its best when in co-op, I'm pretty the NPCs are going to be dumb as hell. My biggest worry is that it ends up being doing the DNF cause this game has seen so many development changes, as said by previous people. *This was actually originally gonna come out on the PS2*

I realy do not know about this one, When Alien v Preadator came out I ran Full pelt to the shop to buy it (not Exactly), I bought it purely from the trailers, it looked amazing!.........................................

Then i played it, completed it far too quick in my opinion. The game had no real depth if you know what i mean.

I'm sorry but this is not at the top of my list but I might get it when the price hits rock bottom you never know
