We were discussing this yesterday – Peter’s far more accepting of the direction Gearbox are taking here but I’m of the opinion that the heavy scripting and almost complete linearity spoils what could have been a really nice, intelligent shooter.
I’m not Call of Duty’s biggest fan but I appreciate that it does the job well. Aliens, though?
Hard to say. There’s no acid damage, barely any feedback from the (massive) weapons and it all just looks a tiny bit – well – dull.
Let me know which side of the fence you’re standing on.
