I worked on this game (a fact of which I am not proud). Iím not here to defend it; I agree with all these reviews. The Executive Producer for the game, Chris Parker (also an owner of the company), seemed to think he was the worldís greatest designer ever, and created all these absolutely horrible systems and wouldnít listen to any of the real designers or devs about things that just didnít work. And you canít exactly argue with one of the owners of the company when he doesnít want to listen. He basically took over the game and dictated exactly how everything would work (or not work, as the case may be).
Sega also was a factor, because they kept changing the design requirements (yes they had heavy influence there), which never gave the producers and designers time to actually decide on one set of features to make and polish. The execution was absolutely terrible, and it was obvious 2 years ago that this game should have been scrapped. This game was just an absolute failure of production, and itís no wonder that so many of the developers left the company, even after the 40% staff layoffs. Sega should have cancelled AP instead of Aliens.
