I think the fundamental flaw of all the aliens games so far, from a Marines perspective, has been this: You're always on some brown-assed world, rummaging through "abandoned bases" that aren't really spooky when you are on your 5th or 6th game of abandoned bases, and you know that every open grate is going to have an alien come busting out of it. Just one. Maybe two.
If you see a scene where there are 3, 4, 5 aliens attacking you, guaranteed your movement options will be limited, so you just dancce around trying not to get pounced-on and spray and pray.
Now after like 6 games...that gets a little stale.
3rd person power loader - Should be a must-have.
Multiple paths should be a must have, not just one way through everything.
The ability to be attacked by WAVES of aliens while backtracking and closing doors to slow them down
And ideally a squad you could reposition, with simple commands, and if you let them die your ability to complete the level should be *almost* but not completely impossible.
It would also be nice to not just hunt Aliens....lets face it.....they don't shoot back, they pounce....give us some other enemies.
