    I love Alien.
    I love RPG's.

    This could have been done well, but as always FPS's are usually what rake the money in.

    I imagine it would have been a FPRPG along the lines of Deus Ex, which is a shame cos I love games like that.

    Damn shame, this could have been really quite something. Fingers crossed the others don't end up the same way.

    This could have been great, but I don't blame them. Alien is a big brand, but not so big as so you can just slap any old genre on it and expect it to sell. The big-budget shooter gameplay is much safer and, to be honest, much flashier and has more potential for tension and horror. Obsidian are not exactly known for their technical excellence, and the Alien films are arguably successful because of technical excellence. They simply may not have been able to deliver the same kind of experience within the confines of an RPG (though to be fair, I would expect Obsidian to be able to, if anyone could).

    maybe we can build a campfire sing a couple of songs? how about that!

    on a more serious note it is rather bad but mind you no-one has yet to do a good aliens franchise game which is a load of rubbish as the whole aliens has plenty of potental.
