It was looking good. It must have played like a turd though for it to get canned so late in development

Yeah, the art looks lovely.
It captures the films style.

But RPG?

Seriously?

A proper RPG allows for conversation with the opposition, you can bribe, bully, seduce, lie to or trick them...or as a last resort use violence (like 99% of video gamers :lol: )

I'm thinking about the RPG elements when you meet the first Alien...."can we talk about this?"....Dead.
So much for Role Playing.

I think that's why it got the can, it took them X amount of years to realise there is no Role Playing in a franchise that consists of shooting and biting. It was probably deemed not worth doing as a basic shooter with the other Aliens and Aliens style games on the market.

I wonder what next, an RPG version of FIFA 12?

For the record, I love the Aliens film franchise and Role Playing Games too....I just cannot believe someone got the greenlight to combine the two only for the execs to finally wake up and realise it won't work.
What a waste of time :cry:
To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.

Instead of wasting time making and then cancelling what could have been a perfectly good game, how about you make shenmue 3 SEGA??

I liked Alpha Protocol and i actually think that it did things better in some areas than both Mass Effect 2 and Deus Ex.

...just saying... :wink:

Alpha Protocol was fantastic, I'd consider the gaming opinions of anyone who thinks it was bad to be essentially worthless.
