Potentially quite good, but flawed
(I might have found a bug, I can't buy a second upgrade for my rifle, even though I have enough money)
Not much I can say that others haven't. Yes, the general idea has been used many times before, but that doesn't mean it's a BAD idea. I had a real sense of horror in the dark parts, and the aliens were definitely creepy. I love the idea of hive/collective minds and truly ALIEN aliens.
However, slow pacing does indeed drag this game down. The game would be much better if movement was faster, smoother and freer, both for enemies, and moreso, the PC. I suggest nailing the objects down so I'm not pushing them with my face when an enemy is attacking, or least make them destructible.
- And this suggestion may be a bit out there, but the game might be improved by a 'fog of war' feature. If areas were only made visible once you get to them, it could improve feelings of horror, claustrophobia and tension. As it is, I'm not really scared by aliens since I know exactly where they are and I'm warned ahead of time, giving me time to reload and prepare myself. -
But otherwise a game with good potential, that needs polishing and modifications to the gameplay.
