Excerpt: Alien, successor Aliens, and Predator are movies that have determined my youth. The first is the ultimate sci-fi horror movie, the second one of the the best action movies ever and the third is just a perfectly made pulp with every five minutes a scene that I loved playing myself with my brothers.
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.
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?
Excerpt: As crossovers go, Aliens vs. Predator is a huge brand: first came the comic, and then followed the games and the films. Obviously, though, I’m not here to talk about any of the comics or any of the films, but rather to tell you my thoughts on the newest game: developed by none other than Rebellion,...
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: There's nothing quite like the déjà vu experience generated from an AvP title showing up on shelves parading about like it's the hot new cross-franchise shooter that will fill your deep seeded desires to obliterate an entire race (or two).
Halo-type sci-fi shooter, just with more gore and profanity.

Summary: Parents need to know that Alien vs. Predator has gratuitous violence against aliens and humans alike. It contains more graphic killing than other sci-fi shooters such as Halo, which is somewhat pale in comparison, violence-wise.
Summary: Aliens Vs Predator is not the best FPS out there, but nothing else has come close to replicating the (good) movies in the series. The graphics are strong with some great lighting work, but the sound is flat out awesome.
Excerpt: Is anything scarier than a xenomorph swarm coming at you in a dimly lit corridor? 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: 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.
