The Alien Breed reboot trilogy didn't really capture the essence of the originals, I thought. Too much emphasis on fetch quests and running from point A to B C then to A again, then D, then B... etc. There were also too many scripted events and not enough random encounters.
One of the things I loved most about the originals was the element of exploration and discovery. It really sucked that those things didn't make it into the reboot.
