Summary: This is the 2nd best game i've ever played.Like the other reviews,it could be better with 2 player.I found the master cheat so I just check out the maps and watch the enemy[p.s. the master cheat is,while playing mash R1,R1,L1,R1,L1,L1,R1,L1,R1,R1,L1,R1,L1,L1,R1,L1].Another thing is the aliens.I tried the predators but it wasn't that fun.One thing that annoyed me is the upgrades.The more games you complete the more upgrades you get to use.You don't have to worry about...
Summary: As a Predator fan, this game was highly disapointing. For one it was too short. It needed more missions and environments. For two in most games like this u are able to build some kind of a base and/or defense. The most u could do here was place a few mobile guns around. And that was only for the Preds and Marines. Third of all, it should not have been a strategy game, not for the PS2 console anyway. It should have been a third person game.
Summary: I am a big fan of the Alien movies, (...). I did not play the two earlier M rated computer games, so I don't know if they are better. This one is cool because you can be aliens, predators, or humans(I don't think that should have been in the game because it's so point less). This can be hard at times but still very fun. Any fan of the movies would enjoy this game.
Summary: This is a great RTS game for the PS2. The graphics are great, the sound is great, and the game play is great. But for $40 I want more in a game(I rented the game). A two player would be really nice and online play would be a lot better. Or a skirmish mode. You can play as either the Aliens, Predators, and the weak little humans. Aliens: I play as the Aliens most of the time because they are well rounded, and I like attacking in numbers (Predator is also very fun).
Summary: First off I'd like to say the AI really is not that bad if you keep half an eye on your troop movement. Yes units do take unexpected turns and do some stupid things but I think all the criticism about the AI is overdone. Second, what the heck do you expect from a RTS console game? Common folks, get real. There is no way a console RTS can EVER come close to a PC RTS (i.e. "Conflict Zone") so lets be realistic in our expectations of this game.
Summary: First of all i dont think people should rate this game to warcraft. Extinction was the first try of a RTS on playstation2. And i think they did a pretty good job on their first RTS. Its really cool to play with each of the three races and try to hunt down the others while trying to complete other objectives. A couple of things that i thought brought this game down was the graphics and the pretty bad AI.
Summary: This game is very flawed, but is tons of fun if you can be patient with the AI. There are plenty of different types of soldiers, and the three races are very diverse. 21 Missions total will probably be around a week, unless you play all day. Later missions usually take about an hour. Buy it at a local store, like GameStop or EB, beat it within the 7 days, return it. Voila!
