Eskimo Press: The Alien universe enjoys a large and devoted fan base around the world. Of course there are a lot of gamers that are into Alien, and hopes are always high when a new Alien game is announced. Sadly, the past years have not been kind to those of us that look forward to new games based on our favorite extraterrestrial creature.
The latest Aliens vs Predator (2010) offered some fun, but suffered from several flaws that doomed it to fps mediocrity. I don’t even have to go into how disappointing the recent Aliens: Colonial Marines was. There have been some good games in the recent years, like the underrated Aliens: Infestation on the Nintendo DS, but the best “big” games were the Aliens vs Predator PC games from ’99 and ’01.
Many of us would love to see a new awesome game based on the franchise, and we want something fresh rather than the rehashed ideas that have defined Alien games of late.
