Quite a lot of it comprised scripted events by the looks. All the squad NPC deaths - getting pulled into vents and such - were obviously scripted. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing if used well. It's all part of the "cinematic" thing. I'd suggest it might take some of the tension out of subsequent playthroughs though.

I'm not sure I'd go that far. I seem to recall battling hordes of wall-running, vent bursting Aliens as a Marine many moons ago in AVP 1 & 2. AVP2 did the mech thing too, in the final Marine level, so there's nothing really revolutionary in what CM has shown so far.
