It looks better than I first anticipated, but still it's cover based, auto-health recovery, agents-revivable, console minded game... Console minded means that it works in large chunks instead of small, detailed parts. Sure, the graphics, the animations, the environment and the eye-candy stuff is quite fine, but notice when "ultimate war machine" shoots aliens; all the cover-line of aliens, even the one out of blast radius is killed, because the stuff doesn't work range-based, but target-zone based. And the target zone is "behind these covers", not "just that spot."
Anyway, at least the retro-style is in place... But will definately need better scripting and voice acting. At least some original quotes to make it more personal. My hernandez was special for me not because of her abilities, but because of how she played out, and without even saying a word she became the center of all my attention... and then she died and we cried. Hope it will work out like that in the game too.
