It looks like Turok N64!

Demo doesn't look pre-rendered . Just looks like they changed it all or it was built for PC like that and then they baked all the lighting in and dumbed it down for consoles and then decided to use that as the base for PC.

Here may be (legitimate or illegitimate) insight into what happened to this game:

This kind of reminds me of the whole Silent Hill HD Collection debacle, to a lesser degree

 

I'm not done with it yet, but it's not a total train wreck. Actually been having a good time with it after the horrible beginning. Maybe it's because I'm playing on an old LCD monitor at the moment, but graphics are fine. I think people are being a tad harsh, but I guess Gearbox brought that upon themselves to some degree 

 

Well back to it

I just saw this (and was going to post it here as well), it's pretty interesting how these things happen.

Sounds very plausible.

I just think it's ridiculous that given how great a movie Aliens is and how well the concept could work into a video game, the games so far haven't lived up to it. AvsP 2 is decent, but beyond that they all seem pretty bargain-bin to me.

I'm bitter that the Obsidian Alien RPG was cancelled in favor of this...

Of course as soon as I have something nice to say, then it throws a bunch of humans at ya. These sections are god awful, and don't even feel like part of the universe anyways

Alien 3 on the SNES is actually a good, or better than good, game.  It's got the weapons, multiple aliens and missions inspired from Aliens but in the setting of Alien 3.  It's challenging and controls well and though mission types repeat, the new level layouts and enemy patterns keep the challenge escalating.  The atmosphere is excellent.  It had a pretty cool mechanical innovation as well that I'm not sure any other 2D game has done: bullets traveled instantly to the target like in modern 3D shooters.

also good:


albeit not super faithful to the source.

Ah, forgot about Alien 3 on the SNES. I recall it being OK but haven't played it in a really long time. Maybe I'll give it another go.

Been reading consumer reviews of this while at work:

 

The AI is kind of like watching my girlfriend try to play Halo for the first time, but the problem here is I wouldn't ever pay her 60 plus dollars to watch her fumble around the screen running into walls or headlong into intense gunfire.

:lol:

 

I love that people still make games this bad.
