Excerpt: Aliens and Predators are fighting to the death and you're a marine who's stuck in the middle. Or rather, you're an Alien trying to survive against those who would hunt you and use you as a test subject. Maybe that's not your cup of tea?
Conclusion: Any reasons to play this game is for the lacking Marine campaign and Survival and Infestation modes (though Infestation opens the door to use the special kill if you become an Alien), all of which aren't even reason enough. Game over, man. Game over.

Excerpt: The DS is a popular console for RPG conversions thanks to its dual screen, stylus and layout. There’s something to suit everyone, regardless of taste or preference. But tracking down an experience that feels distinctly ‘grown up’ is perhaps not the easiest of tasks.

With only a crummy torch and a few flares to light your way, the sight of these man-sized nasties, leaping about from wall to wall and slamming into your horrified face is one reserved for the very worst nightmares.
Excerpt: Pulse rifles, xenomorphs and shimmering stealth cloaks; all things that have long passed into gaming cliché since their debut on the silver screen, but in Aliens vs. Predator - the first-person shooter that sees Rebellion return to the universe it helped establish over fifteen years ago – the Oxford...
Excerpt: In many ways, it works, but in even more ways it fails miserably. Most of my problems can be attributed to Rebellion being the developer behind this game. I never want to attack companies directly, and I'm not doing that here, I just don't think Rebellion was the correct choice to make AvP.
Excerpt: Aliens vs Predator transports you to a futurist universe where three irreconcilable species converge, and is based on the two well known film monsters from the sci-fi terror sagas that have also crossed paths on the big screen.
