Wow - this looks good.

Aliens vs Predator from the 1990's was probably one of my favorite games, but the franchise sort of became monotonous Alien/Predator/Marine frag fests and I haven't played an AVP or Aliens game since AVP2.

This looks VERY interesting - you have no weapons and have to rely on stealth to hide from/escape from the single Alien.

It looks like it draws heavily from Ridley Scott's original vision in the first Alien move (the best Horror movie in film history, btw):

Man, I remember when I was 13 we installed AVP onto all the computers in the school computer lab. Then eight of us stayed overnight and played survival mode until 4 in the morning.

Never had such fun, or screamed so loud. First time I understood the practical applications of weapon mounted lights, and the necessity to activate and de-activate quickly.

My first encounter with AvP(2?) was in the summer of 2001, visiting my brother in toronto before grade 9 started. His friend's computer room was windowless and the PC had a surround sound. That was creepy.
