First, who gives a crap? The game isn't called Aliens Vs. Predator Vs. Marines, so you shut your mouth.
Second, it still looked like crap, and I have seen better looking 360 games, so your excuse is gone.
Third, I don't give a crap what the other AVP games had, iron sights are a thing we need to move to seeing more often. This is one of the reasons I hated L4D so much. We really need iron sights in FPS games from here on out.

Considering the Marine campaign will most likely be close combat in dark corridors with the player being swarmed by Aliens, I don't think iron sights are really necessary for this type of game.

Looks like they are following the footsteps of AvP2, where the first level didn't have any Aliens or Predators at all, in an effort to establish a tense atmosphere before throwing you into the thick of battle.

I broke down and watched it, I think they succeeded in setting that atmosphere.

Looks absolutely wicked.

I'm still not gonna' watch it- want to hold out until game is released.

However, it's encouraging to see that you approve- gives me hope that this game will be worth while. Although, you did think HL2 was garbage...

I really hope the radar isn't permanent, that would seriously suck.

I don't think the game is that bad graphically speaking, in fact it's great, maybe... you're expecting PC graphics quality for a console title?

That has no sense at all... That's good for something like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin and the like, but what's the exact use of iron sights in AvP? The action is supposed to be focused on close-combat and corridor fight, so taking into account the speed at which aliens will attack you, what are the chances you survive long enough using iron sights if they could be making you go slower?

Of course, it's a very respectable wish, but... I don't think it will be useful (set aside the fact it would be very-difficult-to-impossible to correctly aim in the darkness)

Just watched the Predator video... definitely looks more fun in that video, and they actually showed Aliens... WTFZ? Anyway... still need a demo because something about it just isn't sitting right with me. And also, I wonder if it is possible to have more stuff onscreen than this game has, because in the Predator video... there was so much bullcrap that doesn't look necessary.
