played the demo already.....i recommend it, never thought i play a demo with only one map over and over and still cant get tired,it must be well worth...they balanced each very well, alien is a real beast, can leap to a high ceiling and jump down on enemies without them looking...deadly
Ca_Kal_Oh I'm talking about the Movie itself,not the game released in 1993 nor 1999 , and like somebody else said, Halo producers said themselves that they took ideas from Alien to make the game. Glad to see there's someone who can argue with me without insulting "the mom", if you know what I mean :)
@AdaptorLive yes the predator attacks do look bad dont they? but i suppose if we want all the cloaking and moving on walls and the other new things they probably make up for it, well they do to me.
This actually looks pretty well balanced, Marines have the motion sensor and long range weapons to avoid being snuck up upon but they still cant see in the dark and are very agile. Aliens can see anywhere and are fast and have powerful close range attacks And predator just owns but he looks a bit slower basically teamwork for marines and aliens will own while predators have the ability to go off on their own.
Can't wait to find out if this game is actually any good. It has a lot going for it but things like the predator attack animation looked pretty crappy to be honest... People will either love this game or be very dissapointed with it. With great franchises comes great responsibilty!
Why dont they say anything about the original alien vs preditor PC game, this is just an updated version off it, the old one was amazing so i hope the grafix are a higher res than this video, The older pc game rock so much, still good today, single player is impossible, 56k arhhhh, you all should look it up would run on crappy laptops these days:)
if this game is anything like the PC version years ago, this will be great.. it pretty much looks the same just different scenarios. I loved being the alien in multiplayer against my friends cause your vision sees all even cloaked predators... you just have to get close.. its an even battle because predator is slow and accurate and stealth and marine has motion sensor with good starting weapon so they cant be flanked unless someone is waiting in one spot and alien has amazing agility with see all vision and only melee attacks
Let me correct ALL of you on this. AvP came out on Jaguar before ANYTHING. This was like in 1990. Halo doesnt compare AT ALL. And Halo designers have even SAID they took ideas FROM Aliens...... ALiens was the shapping of soooo many movies and games. DEAL WITH IT
Nazi zombies with aliens HELL YEAH!!! Yes I know AvP was out way before waw but never got to play those regardless this games gonna be insane.
@xMaverick0x about the dragonballz thing your 100% right budokai 3 was awesome but they could do so much more with it.......
I'm not sure why everyone is judging the graphics based on these videos. I will wait till I see it on a high def TV to pass verdict. Besides, the only thing I saw that looked poor was the flamethrower, imo of course
Oh i just read in SEGA website "GET THE DEMO: Available soon on Playstation®3 via Playstation® Network, Xbox®360 via Xbox Live and Games for Windows™ via STEAM."
All i ask is a singleplayer demo before deciding if i should buy or not I hope PC graphs will be a bit better... alien in predator vision is very poor designed when it's close to the predator Perhaps 1 more month wait for PC would be better to sharpen the graphs (Even though i hate delays)
I was exited about this game but i have to say.. marketing has done a terrible job, the presentation is horrible!! i was expecting so much MORE about this game... its like a great idea stripped from such great potential i fear it could become a DBZ tittle... potentially good but screwed up by companies over and over again
I agree with "Johnny9ball" because that was the first thing that acually struck my mind. The game in over all seems pretty worth playing. But the graphics really seems outdated in a way and it feels like they could have developed the engine a bit further. I mean even games such as Doom 3 managed to keep the graphics good enough. Tho I am not saying this game will be bad just because of the graphics issue. But still feels like it could have been a bit sharper :)
oh man i hope this game is good.i been waiting ages for it. but i have to agree some bits looked average in video lets hope eh.
@NervoZa Running around and clawing things may seem lame - (well if it seems repetitive, maybe so is shooting then eh?) maybe not, the melee attacks are supposed to be timed, eg slower but more effective, so it won't be a button mash all the while. Timing and attack placement will make a huge difference in combat here, its all about adapting to the melee attack timing for each species. This is similar to shooting different weapons - using them for proper situations and timing your shots for maximum effect. There in it itself is depth for gameplay. The Aliens' appeal probably lies in being able to physically creep up on your enemy, lurking in the shadows and pouncing with claws and tail. And head-chomping with your inner maw. The Predator is appealing because of the pure invisibility offered by the species' technology. They also have a wide and deadly variety of ranged killing devices (shoulder-mounted Plasmacaster, throwable Disk) and Wrist Claws/Blades! The Plasma caster is definitely in-game didn't you see? Didn't you see? :) This game may not be absolutely special because the game modes (as far as we can tell right now) have mostly been altered (or done before) to fit the AvP theme - BUT I believe its appeal lies in the social experience of the gameplay - working together to Survive or Hunt or simply destroy the enemy. As long as its polished and most of all FUN it will be great. Comments?
So much to say after watching this video....dont really know where to start.First of all the different modes seem ok but are nothing that special,nothing we havent done before.Also the challenge here I think will be making the alien and the predator appealing to the players,and by that I mean making them interesting to play with.It just feels kinda lame to run around and claw things...dont see much depth in the combat.The predator is the ultimate hunter so where are the spears the disks and las cannon?!Another thing I noticed were the sound each marine makes when he dies....totally identical no matter how you kill them.So far this game i nothing special.
they had the "infestation mode" in AVP 2, was like the best multiplayer mode in the whole game, should be good if you can have lots of players in a single match, and like he said in the video is true, if you die it's not the end of the round because it's very rewarding to lead a successful infestation and kill the rest of the human players, but nothing beats being able to work together to survive the match survival mode sounds good too, like "horde" mode I imaging, should also be fun I'm thinking
@gstealer I dont know much about Halo, but if you really know something about the alien and predator franchise, then you would know that in 1990 there was no AvP game made yet. The first-ever AvP was made in 1993 for the SNES. If you were reffering to the 1999 AvP, then I must remind you that it didnt contain any extra multiplayer modes, other than DM, SDM, and coop. The first "extra" multiplayer modes were released in AvP 2, released in 2001 only two weeks before Halo. So it looks that it is you who needs to learn some "video games history" before you attack others.
after comparing to other vids and screenshots i really feel like its the video quality that is making the graphics seem less than they are. i guess well know for sure feb 16... and this looks like sooo much fun regardless.
Infestation mode sounds like the zombie mod in Counter Strike: Source. Just saying, And this game looks great so far and I can't wait to play this. Hope there is demo. [:
