Aliens vs. Predator
im a aliens fan ever sense i saw the movies when i was a kid with my dad, never really liked predator but whatever, anyways, the game is great if your a fan and have some freinds to play with, its on sale right now so go pick it up
It Was so AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!
Marine and Predator are easy Alien is Hard But they are all Fun. I've Beatin Marine,Predator But i'm working hard to beat alien
Perfect for the fans and stealthy players
A lot of people rated this game unfairly. I am going to give it to you straight. This game isn't for everyone, however eat reaches out to the main players. Its a simple fps with surprises that would make you jump out of your seat. I know i did. Its also a stealth game with room to explore different ways to overcome obstacles and enemy's. The game is also a fighting type game with melee being one of the predators main killing tools as well as with the aliens. This game does have a weird press "a button to enter" stuff game play interface but it works and if it wasn't there the game would lose playability do to ease of movement and bugs. the games graphics are awesome. I am playing it on very high graphics with direct x 11 (yes its compatible) with shading and shadows on very high and anti- aliasing is up to times 8. The only problem with the graphics is when transitioning with the wall to wall jumps and movements with the aliens its physics isn't all there, sometimes you'll see through the map. It is not a big issue just one that with a patch can be fixed. The sound now this game is one i say sound is key as a human and predator and the sound with a good surround sound stereo system or with a great headset (Triton's) then the game play gets boosted up even more. All in all this is a great game and for the price its worth it. I do stress it is not for everyone. This isn't a game for fps shooters who are fiends of medal of honor, battlefield bad company 2, and call of duty. if you think its like those games but instead of your friend being a spetsnaz hes an alien then you my friend are going to be disappointed. Don't get me wrong its a great game but for fiends of the game listed it is not a gun and run or camp as most of you do. You are to survive, adapt , change, overcome. The game is fun and addicting i loved the game and i am a big halo, call of duty, and killzone fan and it works. also for whoever loves splinter cell or sly cooper and all the other stealth like games aliens are the race for you and this game will be a must buy for you. If you have got 20 bucks and all ready got your list of games down then its worth the price.
awesome hardcore game not for sqeamish people I have the second avp game
Fun and gorey
My copy for the pc was really glitchy it moved liked a sort of scracthed disk but was still fun espicially as predator who looked slomo with the glitches Overall it was asome w xbox 360 conrollers work with the computer
I have Played this game only a minor amount overall. about halfway into each races storyline. and i must say, im dredfully disapointed. the overall Storyline is great in my opinion. although lacking in some areas. the graphics are superb better then i would expect but after playing the previous game i am not suprised. great Gore and fatalities from all races along with excelent lighting effects and visual effects. The sound is great, you can get full 7.1 surround sound out and it makes an excellent guide for the true FPS player who listens for every noise to get a directional for aiming. the Challenge is rather interesting atleast in some aspects its hard to descern where you need to go and what you need to do but thats just how the last one was. the interface is very similar to the previous in display as far as the Hud goes. but interacting in the game i find rather anoying like how you have to interact with a vent to use it and interact with buttons and key consoles just to destroy them rather then just plain old attacking it. and your unable to Destroy the Bars that block you and things that were destructable in the last game are no longer. but overall what literally killed me about this game was the changes to the controls. the fact that you have to hold the middle mouse button just to climb walls seriously anoyed me. rather then just having no collision when wall walking like in the old one. In Conclusion. if your in it just for the gameplay and to get a decent story play this game. but if you played AVP 2 and primal hunt. i advise staying clear of this game. the last version did the best job ive ever seen in interactive gameplay as each race. there was a major level of difficulty and balance to everything that just made it flow. overall this game only gets a 5/10 and if i had to compare it to the old version id give it a 3/10 overall. whereass teh last version AVP2/primal hunt i give a 10/10. also a big disapointment so far i have not gotten to be a face hugger and chest burster which makes me sad.
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
Many issues - Skip It Until It's Cheaper
Bottom Line: You'll get grabbed or melee'd from 30+ feet away (and that's NOT a lag issue). There are significant balance problems (preds have highest health + highest melee + highest defense + best ranged weapons that, no joke, kill in one hit from easily controlled projectiles). Significant control problems, and to call the game a basic FPS is a borderline understatement. Limited number of multiplayer maps.Preds: Where you can jump is largely arbitrary. There's no reason why you can't jump to the flat space that's clearly in view but you can jump to the flat space above you that requires a curve-ball like jump; that's just the way it is. Will NOT get knocked on their butt from most attacks, but will from some. In single player, the AI controlled Marines randomly become psychic and will know where you are at all times regardless of cloak or your location or your movement (or lack of movement).Aliens: Gets knocked 90 degrees sideways from melee attacks. Gets physically knocked on their butt (which takes forever to get up from) from fierce melee hits and from more than a few types of weapons fire. Weak physical attacks. Extremely slow fierce attack (by far the slowest melee attack in the game unless you're on a wall or ceiling and dealing with the clunky control problems). Wall walking can be frustrating and random. Sometimes the Alien will not run over some small bumps or willl not run over other surfaces while on walls and ceilings when there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to crawl over them (eg; a clean, curved surface becomes an invisible wall). Will occasionally jump to a random surface other than what you're pointing at. Will occasionally "get stuck" on (aka will not drop from) a surface. Easy to kill. Your view will not remain facing in the direction that you are pointing, causing your direction to abruptly (and significantly) change while switching surfaces or crawling over the side of things (basically, the Alien has no neck what-so-ever and probably no back bone, either, in so far as your point of view is concerned).Humans: Can not crouch. Can not take cover. You're basically a doll that's unable to bend at some joints. Enemies in the single player game CAN crouch and CAN take cover and definitely WILL do both against you, leaving you poking above your "cover" while they hide behind theirs. In multiplayer, the marine is at an obvious disadvantage versus the other races, and will shoot team mates due to confined spaces & the inability to crouch for your team mates behind you. The flash light is worse than the low-battery flash light that I have in my house.In single player, the aliens become easier to kill in later levels due to the fact that many begin to spit easily dodged low-damage acid spit instead of attacking with claws and teeth.In multiplayer, the limited number of maps will leave you revisiting the same location numerous times, but with slight differences for different play styles. For example, Refinery (the demo map) is here, but may be significantly darker (but with no other changes) for some game modes.You will get grabbed from 30+ feet away and this is not a lag issue. It looks absurd when you do it (you grab the air and then are suddenly holding your opponent who's way ahead of you) and it's cheap as can be when it happens to you. Melee is the same; you will get knocked on your butt from melee attacks that are several feet away. Again, not lag as everything else is happening lag-free.Can not do some fundamental actions while sprinting, such as reloading your weapon, causing you to become an even easier target than you otherwise are. Controls are not consistent (eg; to block as Pred you hold left + right mouse button, but to block as Marine you hold middle mouse button), causing obvious confusion in hectic fights.Multiplayer can get boring. In Hunter mode there's an unrealistically short time for the predator to attack before the game kicks you back to a Marine & replace
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.
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.
