Summary: Why Purchase?: I purchased the game simply because I am a casual gamer. Bored with the games currently, this game was just to pass some time. Needed something simple but fun to play. Like/Dislike: What stood out was the 3 campagins; campagins are enjoyable and the multiplayer adds a nice touch to the game. The controls are easy to learn(May vary in multiplayer)and have a unique play style both online and offline.
Summary: What made this special edition (the Hunter Edition) really nice was the extras it came with. I will review each piece separately that way you can get a decent review of everything it came with. The game: Very dark & gritty and it really captured the Aliens universe very very well. It was very much like Doom 3 as far as the eery factor.
Summary: There are few things more satisfying than getting a trophy kill as a Predator or an Alien. The graphics are pretty good, the gameplay is ok, not good though. The story is short, and to be honest, I couldn't care less about it. The characters suck. I really don't have sympathy for them. As an Alien, the campaign was the most bare-boned. Go here, kill here, Go there... Not much going on.
If you're an A or P or AVP fan, definately get this, but don't pay too much

Summary: Singleplayer is too short but the graphics are great, they did some sweet lighting. Multiplayer is fun, the leveling up is nice. Marine campaign is a remake of the second avp for pc, kinda lame. ONLY TWO BLOODY MAPS FOR SINGLEPLAYER SURVIVAL!! Preds, the cloak once again deactivates when u use certain weapons, unlike the movies. -_- Campaign makes me feel like such a badass tho. :3 Alien campaign is SWEET! Your character is different, special, extra badass.
Summary: This game could have a better online. When i played the online it's cool the game modes. The graphics and all that made the game intense along with the gore. But the game had lots of glitches and bugs in it. That need major work on. Even to this day they still haven't been fixed. The game has huge amounts of lag on the server and the heavy attack is spammed way to much. Making it way to over powerd. The lunge is annoying and the range is way to far.
Summary: the game is good but the map pack that comes with it expired 3/31/11 and I got my copy on 4/3/11 and contacted sega and they are no help also the face hugger was broken and sega has not responded to me yet
Summary: Ok, I have officially purchased my last special edition for gaming, that is unless the companies start taking these editions far more seriously. Its a shame really as these special editions are really a great opportunity to offer something special to the really hard core fans. I would actually be willing to pay more if I knew what I was getting was actually more than just some cheap figure made in some misc Chinese factory.
Excerpt: Remember the bit in Aliens where Hicks is attacked by an alien which he blocks with his bare hands and then counters with a good old pistol whip? No? That's good because it didn't happen. There is no way you could hold off an aliens attack by sticking your forearms up in the air. Rebellion seems to think you can, and it spends the entirety of the Marine campaign in AvP reminding you how to do so. It's such a bizarre misstep and one of many in this ill thought out game.
