games dont have to do something different always, just do what they do, well.
Not convinced this will do either though
Exactly, well said - but sadly it doesnt seem to do the basics right. The main commander giving it the "Listen up people I am captain blah blah, im badass blah blah speech is tedious" It was only done well in the film as Hudson giving it the badass lines describing the equipment (and the mentioning of a plasma rifle as a reference to The Terminator) was a joke and it was meant to be a bit of fun....even Sgt johnson in the Halo series is tongue in cheek...but it just seems so oddly false in this trailer.....
This looks like it has been done countless times before and done better even more times. I believe this game is trying to live off the licence and the references with little else. How manym ore times will I walk past a yellow power loader and go "wow" or past a facehugger in a tank and think "creepy" - once. After that all of the references will disappear into the background and you will be left with a hollow shell of a shooter.
Warning signs are there - constants delays, little gameplay footage.....
