@graf1k: i would say its a little different...Aliens was a deviation from the first movie, and was only the second film in the series. I think because of that there is definitely some room for changes. Especially when the second film is handed off to an entirely new director. With something like Resident Evil 5/6 they are already at their fifth and sixth iterations of a franchise that had been well established to be a horror genre. While 4 changed it up some there was still definitely some great horror undertones. While I really enjoyed my time with RE 5, I can totally understand why people would hate it, but I will never understand why people don't like Aliens.
@Cubidog1: yeah, I'm really excited for this too...hopefully it'll be like lego batman 2 in the sense that different costumes grant you different abilities (the under cover portion of the title would imply that a 'criminal' costume would let you play portions of the game as a criminal for instance) I already have my wii u pre-ordered so hopefully this game deliverers.
