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: The campaigns are diverse, new, unique, and very fun, but the multiplayer nowadays is full of old veterans and they make it impossible to play without dying every encounter, the multiplayer is fun but too competitive and full of arrogant kids.
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.
Summary: Playing as the alien and the marine is a waste of time. You replay the same five or six levels which each of the three campaigns, but they play quite different with each character. The marine is average FPS, while the alien and the predator control alot like the 2 "condemned" games, very Melee heavy, with projectiles there for the predator as well. The game overall feels very bare bones and bland.
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.
