It's a comparison video of what it looked like before and what it looks like now.

Yeesh, that's quite horrendous.
It's a good way of describing to someone how you can improve graphics without improving polygon counts. It seems the levels themselves are nearly identical to the original demo, but the graphic effects, particle layers, lighting effects and such were all changed or removed as well as things like the skybox.

Is there a demo available for this? I'd like to try it out.

Unless they're scared of a demo lol

Reviews have not been kind either. It's a shame really.

I wanted to like this game so bad. I thought the original avp's on the PC were masterpieces. I don't care about graphics at all, but the robotic animations killed it for me.

The Alien game on the Playstation 1 seemed better in the end.

Loved that game. Well, both of them, really. 1gotp1nk8cidbootson =)
