Rated 0 out of 10 It's about time!
Yeah we have been waiting since 2003 for another installment in this series. The title is misleading in a way since on PC this is actually the third in a series of excellent FPS games. The previous two were both quite fun and could also be scary too. The Marine campaigns in particular while the most standard were also very exciting since lets face it stuck in the dark with noting but your crappy flashlight an some flares with Aliens all over the place is intense. Fortunately you can take a break from that by playing the monster instead stalking people as the Alien or hunting them both as the Predator. And this isn't even mentioning the multiplayer which was always a blast an keeps you coming back for more. Everything I have seen indicates this game will be as good or better as those previous games so I highly recommend it. If you need more convincing consider Dedicated Server support has been confirmed which is of course excellent news for buyers of the PC version.
Rated 10 out of 10 by john1574 Well done! very fun
I did play and loved the 2 olders AVP games. I finished the marine side of this 1 and I can say its very fun and the game run very very smoothly... never had graphic bug or any glitch. I also play game in 3d and it didnt worked at start but after fixing it, this is 1 of my best 3d game up to date. The marine side was easy at normal difficulty, the marine you play can melee and push back aliens then shoot kill them, the checkpoints are close so you never need to play an hour to reach next checkpoint. You cannot duck but i never had the reflex to try ducking while fighting aliens. Player got pistol with infinite ammo, infinite lightstick and there a bunch of ammos/heathpacks everywhere, also the flashlight never run out of battery. The thing I loved in previous version was the ambience of the game... stressfull bip-bip-bip radar, deadly aliens walking on walls and the sounds of aliens drooling over me, all those are well rendered in that game. My only complaint is the melee attack of the marine is too powerfull and make it too easy, so i suggest playing marine at hard for casual player like me.
Rated 2 out of 10 by kevin1991 Control lag makes the game annoying.
The game is well overpriced as it feels way undeveloped. First off it doesnt support 96 khz bitrate, after having FRAPS confirm my FPS was well over 30 i concluded the controls to be laggy and unresponsive which makes the game unenjoyable. On easy, the game poses a challenge at least on the humans side which became a big let down and made it exremely hard pared with the hoaky laggy controls. I soon switched to aliens side, which had even worse controls. To put it blankly you dont feel like an agile alien you feel like a robot. The graphics however are quite impressive and i can best relate them to modern warfare 2. Taking into consideration the excessive difficulty level on the Humans side and the bad controls i would not reccomend this game. I have not tested multiplayer yet but so far it was not worth the purchase.
Rated 1 out of 10 by AVP Disappointed Non-Traditional
I bought this game to play with my family, and I must say; If you are interested in an AVP style game, get the older edition. This game is the simplest form of FPS there is. The predator insta-kill any marine or alien (and can see both), the Marine with drop an Alien and Predator in about 5 shots (Motion Sensor), the Alien will die instantly. But hey, if you like having a tail while you're dead, go for it.Over-all, it was a major disappointment. Every Alien, Marine and Predator are the same (except for the skins, which only affect appearance) as opposed to the traditional AVP with various Alien Types, Predator Types and Marine Specialists.The only reason I would even remotely recommend this game is because it looks fairly good.There are much better uses of $**.
Rated 8 out of 10 by THE GAMERz Great game for some people but not for other people
This game in my opinion, is great. The graphics i would have to agree that they are a bit dated but still its not like you have to cover your eyes or anything. The single player campaigns are bit short but they have a pretty good storyline. (honestly, i only have played the aliens campaign) But people are forgetting that this game's main component is the multiplayer. And while some people might find it boring, some will find it very fun. I don't get people complaining about the controls. I find them easy. It's just awkward from some other shooting games out there right now. Now back to the multiplayer, there are 7 gameplay modes. Deathmatch, Species TD, Mixed Species TD, Domination, infestation, predator hunt, and survivor. These variety types of gameplay will draw some people in but being only able to unlock new skins after ranking up might disappoint some people. Now the Sounds part. THe devs have done a great job making the sounds for this game, from the aliens hissing, to predator's variety of weapon sounds, its all here. Some people will learn that there are combos in this game for Aliens and Pred. (not sure about the marines.) Anyways i ll say that this game is worth the money with the new DLCs coming with more maps and stuff. They are also releasing Dedicated Servers soon which should fix a LOT of things. :D

SEGA has decided to take the reigns of a classic game franchise and by the looks of it has created a monster. The graphics are crisp and fluid to complement todays technology. If you try to go back to AvP1 and AvP2 on PC you will see that the potential is there for an amazing game. At least they werent as bad as Terminator 3 for PC. Anyway, I'm super excited for this because I love Aliens and Predator and SEGA knows how to amp up games and gore so I trust this will be one of the best shooters in 2010.

I have owned and played every avp game that has come out and am especially fond of the computer versions they may not have the greatest graphics or an in depth control sceem but they are good old fashioned death match fun or you can play the single player mode with its very nice story and plot although it is rather disappointing that in either game you never encounter both an alien and a predator in the same instance My BIG HOPE is that they do that in this game

I am a HUGE fan of the AVP in every sense, I have watched all movies, read all comics, and played all the games... This game is a dream come true for me. I am really anticipating this release! From what i have seen already from the trailers, the graphics are superb and the game play looks awesome. I can't wait for this game!! I love AVP!!!

AvP is a legendary PC series, but developer Rebellion hasn't made a good game in 10 years. Either they'll return to their roots and make another great game in the series, or their bad game streak will catch up to them. I'm really interested in seeing how this game turns out.
