Excellent design and story. Questionable multiplayer mechanics.
17 May 2014
Summary: While the singleplayer campaign of the game is interesting and well designed, the multiplayer portion suffers from one horrid flaw; the abuse of grabs/sync kills really dampens the play value. Also. it's extremely difficult to find an online player base without either knowing enough people that do play it, or sitting in a lobby for hours. A real pity considering that AVP games used to have wonderful multiplayer capabilities.
Summary: The graphics on this game are nice, the controls certainly could be a little better but I had a few problems with it. First it's short. It might take awhile to beat all three campaigns but it seemed like just when I was getting into playing a species it was over. Second the story. It seemed to steal a lot of the scenery from the first and worst alien vs predator movie. The pyramids, The big predator statues, having bishop being the head of the weyland corporation.
Summary: I'm a big time fan of the Aliens series growing up it was a Yearly staple to watch these movies and I always want to play a fun aliens game. Unfortunately this game is only so-so. Playing as all three creatures (alien, predator and colonial Marine) is kind of cool but I really think the survival mode is where you might enjoy this game the most. I do want to point out one thing I think this game is better than Aliens Colonial Marines which was a disaster.
