Good review. Kinda makes me think of a more pronounced version of the difference between The Suffering and Ties That Bind. Both were action-shooter games with survival horror influence, but the first did a great job of creating a creepy Silent Hill-like vibe. While the second one concentrated more on big battles and forcing you into monster mode, as some monsters only could be beat by you as a monster, and had much less awesome imagery.

Overall, it was more adrenalizing combat-wise, but the end result was a lesser game.

Hey, great review. It's interesting how this one stacks up to its predacessor, and how you still think it's playable, even if not as good.

Also, I'm most pleased you seemed to actually proof it. In fact, the only thing I found might not be an error at all.

becomes what Ridely Scott’s Aliens

Is that how the name is spelled ir is ot Ridley? Or even Ripley? (I ask about Ripley because you cite that name towards the end of the review, and I'm not sure whether you were referring to this guy or someone else)

By the way, nice review. I had heard that this game was too in-your-face to be much fun, and you communicate that fact very well.

The error is that Ridley Scott didn't direct Aliens ;) ... James Cameron did.

That's embarrassing as hell.

Now to edit and pretend it never happened!
