    For some reason I keep waiting for the text, "System Shock 2: Special Edition", to flash up on the screen.

    Looks scary to be honest but will the finished product hold up?

    @Chewgumma Thank you very much for pointing out that it is in fact Creative Assembly who are the developer. I managed to miss that in both the OP and the polygon article. [face_beatup]

    I'm very aware of the problems of the most recent Total War. But yeah, I'll choose to go with cautious optimism now too.

    I have faith this won't be a repeat of the Colonial Marines debacle but being cautiously optimistic is the correct logic to follow with this. Looks promising! As Colonial Marines once did....

    Trailer looks really good, and as an A L I E N fan I hope it's a great game. But after A: CM I'm not holding my breath.

    Yes. This has the potential to be the best game set in the Alien universe yet, but considering that there was never a really good one in the first place (I'm not an AvP fan in case someone brings that up) somehow I won't be surprised if we add this one to that sad list.

    I'm being optimistic on this too. It looks very good and it seems to be going for actual horror atmosphere like the first film rather than a shocks type of horror found in Doom 3 for example. It's not that I don't like Doom 3, I just didn't find it to be that scary. Now, if A:I can keep me from turning out the lights at night then I will be very happy.

    I disagree. The Aliens Trilogy game on the PS1 was very good.

    I hope it's good.. i really do. Been wanting a Alien survival horror game for along time. And i waited for Colonial Marines since 2007 >_<
    However, seeing as the makers of this game is Creative Assembly. Who made the unfinished, buggy, unoptimised mess called Rome 2. And that the publisher is Sega, who published Rome 2 and Colonial Marines. My expectations are way down :(

    Something that worries me is how Rome 2 and Colonial Marines looked so good in the demo's and trailers, but the released product was not even close. I really hope this isn't yet another fare trailer :/

    im honestly not a big aliens fan, never have been unfortuantely im a predator fan lol, i thought the Colonial Marines game looked boring honestly and it ended up being bad. im actually excited for this game, i love the premise and it def seems to feel like a REAL ALIEN game and i think aliens fans should be excited for this.

    This looks more like Amnesia: The Dark Descent or Outlast than Colonial Marines. That is a VERY good thing. Those games are terrifying, and Colonial Marines somehow managed to make the Xenomorphs not scary since you kill waves of them with your pulse rifle. I don't think this new game features weapons. When you are completely helpless it is truly scary. Be sure to play it with headphones and in the dark!

    "ur". Really? Is "you're" that hard to write? :rolleyes:

    Any indication why it has to be Ripley's daughter?

    EDIT: In all seriousness, I think its mainly because it a rather unexplored character, that fits in the story.

    Still surprised Mr. Ender hasn't come back to tell me I am wrong in some way.

    I'm a sucker for the Alien franchise (yeah, I even bought ACM and liked it [face_whistling]) and this game will be the next one on my purchase list. I've already got it preordered. So far the videos I've seen of the gameplay make it look very promising.
