Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem PSP review
30 May 2010
Excerpt: Like Spider-Man and many more, Predator seems to have been born to star in a game. who’d pass by the chance to play as an alien with dreadlocks who can turn partially invisible anyway? Certainly not me. With such a great character, how could you possibly go wrong? Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem answers this very question with a rather underwhelming and mediocre game.
Excerpt: I remember a time when playing an Alien / Predator title was a joy. My first experience with the series was on the PC many years ago. Walking through the halls of an abandoned military station playing as a human was tremendously frightening and made me wonder at the possibilities of the same match-up in the cinema. Two horrible theater schlockfests later and a gaming series has dilapidated into nothing more than a shell of its former self.
Excerpt: Over the course of recent years, last generation consoles were bombarded with some of the blandest and most mediocre gaming experiences to be had in the shape of film licensed games. Most of these consisted of flicking switches and hitting the same enemies with the same attacks for six hours, whilst the developers stuck in a timely clip from the movie every now and then to keep their employers happy.
Excerpt: Another movie adaptation… Now as a general unwritten rule of the video game world, adaptations of movies don’t generally work, they’re always flawed and most seem rushed. In fact I can only think of one that has worked? no I can’t. I would also like to point out that I have not as yet seen the movie Alien vs Predator Requiem mainly because the first one was terrible; one of the worst films I have ever seen, I would have rather watched paint dry.
Pros: Presentation isn’t bad., Graphics aren’t too shabby.
Excerpt: Regardless of my absolute hatred of the AVP films I am more than happy to put my distain aside when there is a good game behind the angst ridden name. However, for Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem – which is a game based on the current movie of the same name – no amount of averting ones eyes is enough to look past the limitations of the game at hand.
Conclusion: La lutte entre les races extraterrestres les plus terrifiantes de l'histoire du cinéma manque singulièrement d'attrait sur PSP. Poussif et classique, le titre de Rebellion ne pèse pas bien lourd face à la concurrence. A éviter, à moins d'avoir des tendances masochistes ou de vouer une adoration sans limite à tout ce qui est gluant et qui couine lorsqu'on appuie dessus.
Conclusion: AvP Requiem est un jeu particulièrement bourrin. Qui plus est, le fait ne pouvoir incarner que le Prédator a quelque chose de frustrant pour le fan. Pas vraiment une daube, Aliens vs. Predator Requiem présente tout un tas de petits bugs et de petits oublis qui font qu'on en a vite raz le bol. Dommage, il y avait matière à faire un jeu plutôt intéressant.
Pros: Seule adaptation du film, tous les gadgets du predator
Cons: Trop facile, trop linéaire, trop de bugs, on ne peut pas jouer un alien ou un humain
