ok so i just finished the first mission of the campaign, got it on Xbox360. and its pretty bloody awesome. its intense from the get-go, so far the controls and the fluidity of the game is definitely there. i mean it was a console game but didnt have that "console feel", if you PC FPS players get me. was fairly smooth. this game on a harder difficulty on PC, ooh man i cant wait.
the Aliens really do come out of nowhere. i had it on Normal so was pretty easy, like they get right in your face but are fairly easy to take down which is good. like in the movies, the Aliens didnt have God-health, just needed to shoot them enough and they popped. their strength is in numbers.
the game has "epic co-op" written all over it, although i could be getting ahead of myself. lets just say that whole first mission i didnt blink much.
and you HAVE to rely on that motion tracker, it only comes up with a button press as its a separate hand-held device, but it doesnt get in the way at all and adds a bit of realism to the whole thing, as well as increasing the intensity. if you have it up and get rushed just start firing and you will automatically lower it to engage as opposed to the frantic button mash to hide/change to wrong weapon/pull pin on grendade and self kill that happens in some games haha.
will play more soon and write a proper review. but im (clearly) pretty excited right now
