Aliens need to kill the player and npcs in one swing or one hit of their inner mouth otherwise they are not real Aliens.

They better not make Multiplayer like call of duty either.

bro I really hope it comes out great, but I think Gearbox might not have been the best studio to pick this up.  Lets just hope I'm wrong because there's soo much potential here.

I wish you could play in third person.

Sigh...

This doesn't look scary at all, it looks like an action game.

"Needs to be an authentic experience"

"Protect each other"

"... almost works better because there is co-op, you know, because you can share that experience"

 

The ONLY way this could work would be if it was matchmaking with new players each round/map/chapter/stage/whatever, so that you don't know the other guys and feel isolated.

Also, why IS there a melee button anyway? No way in hell you could push a xenomorph away, it would be more scary if the aliens almost killed you in a second in melee.

@theOmegaCloud ummm actually, pulse rifles which appeared in aliens, they killed over 100 aliens no problem. It was the first movie in which it was difficult to kill the xenomorph, mostly because they didn't have weapons. so no, the aliens are not that hard to kill.

Do a good pc game with at least 40 players in multiplayer. That is all I ask and stop deleting my message gamespot.

This looks brilliant, but so did Duke Nukem before it came out. Let's hope they don't stuff this up like they did with Duke Nukem.

It feels like Gearbox is taking away some of the Alines speed, power, intelligence, and damage absorption. In the movies it's way harder to kill them causing a real fear when encountering one.

I think this game will get an 8 as top, cause as far as I have seen, aliens do not react to gun fire but when they die. As the gameplay goes, the guy shoots an enemy and it just keeps going towards to you, an alien like in the movies should jump from one wall to the ceiling or to the other wall. Another things that bothers me is the AI, watch at 6:33 as your teammate simply goes straight to the alien horde with a pistol and gets killed, instead of stepping back where you are. I mean come on it's 2012! things like that shouldn't be there anymore

This game looks like it is in good shape. I know weve waited for a long time for this but I think it was better we waited, would you rather waste money buying a game that sucks horribly on a franchise you love so much and anticipated so highly or would you wait for this game to come ouit and win best game of 2012? I honestly believe they got it right this time. Just a few more fixes and we are ready to "Lock and load people"

go gearbox. please make this as cool, awesome and as meaty and worth every darn penny as borderlands was. i remember having facehugger nightmares for weeks when i watched the first 2 movies as a little kid. i hope the sequel game makes the same impact as the movies did during their time

I like how tough the aliens are, your not just dropping them with a few rounds you have to actually coordinate and concentrate your fire to effectively take a Xeno down which is awesome.

This game is canon? If it is a tremendously awesome game, then yes. If it is anything below that, then no, it will removed from the canon, like a damaged child is removed from its abusive parents.

Looks really good but I don't like the animations, look quite wooden, the Xeno's movement and the melee, the pulse rifle and motion tracker noises are spot on I love those, very iconic. I hope there's some of the classic quotes from the films in the game somewhere aswell like "Game over man, game over, what the f*** are we gonna do now? what are we gonna do?!" and "how do I get outta this chicken s*** outfit?" =P I just hope if there's alot of dialogue it's not over the top and 'cliche'. I'm really glad that old derelict ship from the Alien director's cut is gonna be in the game, I hope it explains it because I always wondered what that ship was and what it's about(was it transporting xeno eggs or was it just taken over or something).

Alien & Aliens were/are amazing films, the third & fourth films were not worthy of the title though. Lets hope that this game does the first two films justice.

This is one game that I think regardless of a review score, I'll be buying, unless it says it's impossible to play the game because there's a nasty bug at the beginning of the game that stops you from progressing. I love Alien/Aliens so much.

Aliens was a classic. I'm hoping this game lives up to that standard.
