Most notable in the changes is that the AI has been tweaked to be a lot more aggressive. Now you're likely to be frightened by the nimble and contentious creatures as they swarm you and overwhelm you and your forces.
The Xenomorphs, will now strafe out of danger to avoid pain. They will perform jumping attacks, in two variations. Some will jump attack diagonally; also serving as a group flanking tactic against the player. Now the enemy horde will surround you, with jumping melee attacks. The acid ball has been omitted from every xenomorph except the Flying xeno.--Game-balancing and New enemy spawning rates-Many New Gibs have been added, and blood decals now work properly.
Sure the graphics a obviously a bit dated, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun, exciting and worth a look. Especially at the good price of free. Also, it's likely a better game than Destiny.
