Comment: Ohh.. now i’m gonna have a field day.
This game was insanely hyped up because of it’s pax demo that showcased an amazing fps experience. But it turned out that none of that is even in the final game.
The demo shows us smart alien AI, the game shows us brain dead abominations. The graphics mysteriously got worse at release than they were in the demo. The most easily noticed change is that corpses disappear in the main game where as before they didn’t.
Alright enough about the demo, let’s get to the game.
One of the biggest surprises is that you actually fight humans allot of the game. Which makes half the game a “call of duty with a alien sticker on it”
I know i mentioned the Ai before but seriously it was a disaster at launch. Aliens getting stuck in walls, unable too climb, moving incredibly slow while in the open.. etc.
The graphics are okay, the’re nothing special. Just average fps graphics with a few non textured holes here and there.
The gun play is call of duty. I’ll just leave it at that.
The only interesting section where i actually felt threat was a stealth one. Running through claustrophobic corridors from an aliens while you’re totally defenceless.
But this game gets executed for me at the end, with a shameful boss fight that isn’t even a fight.
Gearbox, what the hell happened with this?
