Quoting Andy Hall :
An FPS. Shocking. When are developers gonna move away from first-person? It's not as groundbreaking as it was in the days of Wolfenstein and Doom. It's cumbersome, limiting and there's a distinct lack of peripheral vision. Aliens could have made an awesome third-person action game along the lines of Gears Of War or Vanquish. Shame.


Hey, if its as good as AvP 1 and 2 or the arcade version? I'm fine with it.
