Rated 10 out of 10 by urikoss The most Intense Game out
I started off with the demo and knew right away that this was going to be an amazing game. The fact the everyone that I played with could only handle playing for an hour or two because it demanded one to be so alert was another give away that this was a winning sleeper. Playing the actual game and getting 3 good stories that pulls you in is rare but this game manages to do just that. When you actually play as a specific species you feel the instinct to kill as they would... whether that be creeping as an alien and going in for the head puncture, or hunting down your prey as the predator and taking them out with the plasma cannon. This game does an amazing job of really putting you in the role of your chosen species... The most intense is the human and when the game makes reference to him being the survivor, it couldn't have been more accurate. You're shooting and hoping against hope to keep at range whatever you encounter because in close quarters there's little hope for survival.
Rated 10 out of 10 by GrizzlyUSMC Truly a great game.
I would say that this game is a must buy for any FPS lover and especially for any lover of the Aliens and Predator universe. The story line is highly immersive, the AI is really good and the controls are laid out great, keep in mind that playing the alien can get a bit disorienting just because you can move so fast and transition surfaces with ease. The graphics are great and the sound is phenominal. Multiplayer is definitely a fun challenge, though matchmaking does seem to take a bit long at some times, but its completely worth it when you get into a match. It's truly a great feeling to outmaneuver another player or sneak up on them as an alien. While you're performing finishing moves on another player you become vulnerable to attacks from flanking opponents, but that's perfectly fine. As I said before, this game is truly great, it's a nice break from the Call of Duty and Halo grinds. Definitely play least the beginning parts of each campaign for the three species before you go on multiplayer.

I really wasn't concerned with AvP, there's other titles that I'm impatiently watching the calendar for. So to pass the time I did some browsing and checked out some demos for a game that would hold me over till 3/9/10. Dante's Inferno was alright, but I think I can wait till GofWIII comes out, which is what it was like. Then AvP. Now I mind you, I'm a new fan to FPS so I was gone try it out for a couple of minutes then jump back on ModernWII. This demo had me going for several hours. It was challenging at first, but gets easier, which is what I think makes a game good. Knowledge is power, experience is key. Each of the three species has their strengths and weaknesses, and seeing your kills go from 2 kills per game to 20 something a game is addictive. Can't wait, a hour into it I almost gathered up some old games to take to Game Stop to make a trade for it. Got 4 more days. Loved the graphics, sounds, movements, and possibilities of the real game. This IS GOING to be my first Aliens vs Predator.
Rated 10 out of 10 by avp3 all the way i need nother pair of pants XD
all i can say is wow the whole game is amazing i just cant beileve it the best story line is got to be in my opinion is predator just becuase i enjoy playing with his tech. alien was still awesome even though you dont have visions like a predator you can still easily see in the dark......all i have to say about marine is that it was dissapointing i know its part of the game but i could not see woth crap even though they have flashlights it was impossible but very scary extreme suspence. all in all it was a pretty good game if your a fan of avp or any of the movies i think you shoul buy it i dont think youll be dissapointed.i really enjoyed it although i thought it was weird about the controls but i mean once your used to it its no big deal and i have played the demo and while i dont have online yet im excited i think the online gameplay just like modern warfare 2 will be the best part of the game just to be able to do your own thing and not follow the guidlines of a mission.

Most people that downloaded the demo I think can read its not the finished product, but with the demo being released a couple weeks before the actual game doesnt give much hope either, if it was released a month ago or two months ago id give this demo-game a better chance. I played it and wasnt impressed at all. The map reminded me of the old DOOM game, dark, graphics need alot of work, the human character is WAY underpowered compared to the other two and this game simply didnt do anything for me and a few others I know that tried it. Maybe the full version will bring a more brushed up game, but most demos that are released a week or two before release are right on what the end product is, ill be canceling my pre-order and wait and see for sure on this game. At least with the Battlefield BC2 game that demo was released a month or so before the upcomming actual release and they can really work on some of those issues, but that game is very good no matter what. Sega you better get 2 work on this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Soligna A Must Buy!!!
This game brings an entirely different perspective into the FPS gametype. It is a wonderful break from the Call of Duty and Halo Grinds. The campaigns have depth of story and a very immersive world. The Marine campaign brings to the table a level of suspense only beaten by titles such as Dead Space. At times you find yourself jumping out of your chair from an alien that appears at the perfect time. As well this game keeps the suspense level high while keeping with the genre of FPS games. The Alien and Predator campaigns also bring a very different playstyle and give the game much variance which keeps you interested. The Multiplayer in this game is very fun, the infection, predator hunt, and domination gametypes give players a break from the deathmatch grind and keep you coming for more. Overall this game is a great buy even at full price and will keep you coming back for more and more even after beating the campaigns you will find yourself playing them over again.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Conjee Something to think about
This game was amazing when i first baught it, i was blown away by the sound,the graphics, and of course... all the gore. I really had fun trying out my favorite species the Alien, as well as the Marine and Predator. But once i finished the first campain i realized the missions were way to short. Plus there was no co-op or standard versus like most games which made it hard to love. But i did have the chance to play all the online modes and i loved them expecialy species deathmatch and of course Predator hunt. But in the end this game was a huge hit on my love for the series and in my opinion, the Alien vs Predator franchise had finnaly hit their hot streak. I would definately recomend this to any fan of the franchise or someone just interested in chaos and all out gore. This game just demonstrates what it takes to truly make a game and im happy rebellion and sega were able to work together to make such a great game. This game will surely win E3s game of the year.
Rated 10 out of 10 by AvP master Great Game, but flaws in multiplayer.
This is the second best game that I have ever playe in my entire life. The story line is the best, all three campains connect in some way which is amazing.The fact that you can play all of the species is awsome. The one thing that should be most considered if you have a weak stomach is that its very gory. Other than that its a great game and I would recomend it to anyone I know. One thing but not a big deal is that the matchmaking is really bad and slow. Matchmaking is how the game matches you up with people to play multiplayer with. Which is exclusive to xbox live members. One thing is sometimes when it says "waiting for 0 more players" it will start searching for a different game. Another is that you lose connection with the game or the host is a crybaby or just has to leave and ends the game alot. It also will take along time to search for players. But it is still a great game. getting back to the campains. The marines have the best, but it can be hard and very dark at times. I recommend this to everyone.
Rated 0 out of 10 Demo is pretty good and fun
Just played it with a friend and I thought it was actually fun. For people who whined about they can't do this or not, don't listen to him/she. Apparently that person doesn't know what they're talking about. Controlling the Alien is fun as hell and I seriously get most of my kills as the Alien. As an Alien, it's all about sneaking your opponents from behind because their attacks aren't as strong as the Predator. Predator is strong but slow. The Mercs have a good advantage towards the Aliens but I haven't tried them as of yet but from experience facing them, I usually struggle against them. But the game is about sneaking behind your opponents for instant kills. The demo only has one map, it gets old pretty fast but the action is always there. I was really impressed by demo that I actually will make a purchase. Thought this game was going to suck but not at all. If you're into FPS and want something different besides your casual CODs or whatever, this game is worth a try. Try the demo first, it isn't for everyone.
Rated 0 out of 10 by PudisBumbrshoot Great demo, good balance=very excited!
The demo has been a great insight to what this game has to offer. Although I wish they did come out with a few more levels or something else to do rather than one gametype and one map. The upside to this is that it creates a lot of anticipation for the full game! Balance wise, this game doe a fantastic job! I myself think that the game is very evened out if you have extremely good players at the controls of certain characters. For me the predator is fun, but hard to master all of his skills. As the alien it was extremely easy and fun to master its controls. The marine is by far the easiest to grasp. They are also the easiest to play and dominate as. Ive heard alot of complaints about them being "under powered" which is not true at all! I've played countless games where I've come out on top and I was the marine. People who are complaining about marines just need to get better and learn how to use them. This demo is great. I can't wait for the game!
