As a fan of AVP2 I anxiously awaited the release of the Primal Hunt expansion pack. What a disappointment! Apparently Sierra/Fox/Monolith et al were more interested in their upcoming NOLF2 and contracted this project out. The new company's effort seems to be completely clueless as to what made the original game so great. It's atmosphere and plot, guys -- not simply emptying magazines into onrushing hoards of "aliens." More important than actually shooting are the times when you're sure you going to get jumped any second in a darkened passageway. Little things like unexplained explosions, bodies flying through the air, screams from "somewhere", blips on the motion detector add to a whole scary, beautiful atmosphere. A couple new available weapons (dual pistols, energy fleschette) are unnecessary and a little ridiculous. The additional "monsters" (indiginous life on the planet) could have been a good touch to explain how the "bugs" survive without humans and predators to face-hug and chest burst, but they are poorly realized. (Why don't they fight amoung each other or against the bugs who are their real enemy? They only seem to go after humans and Predators). In short, this expansion pack seems designed by people who had little or no feel for the original game. The graphics are a little better but even this is negated when you see a bug running around chasing his tail while you watch. The Predator missions are slightly better, but only slightly. The "Predalien" levels are a waste of time. There's no purpose behind them other than killing humans and solving puzzles in order to move around the halls. One level (the face hugger) even gives you an incorrect objective. It tells you to find a solitary Predator and do the face hug.Read more ›

I loved AVP2 and I enjoyed AVP2:PH.
I give it 3 stars because it's not amazing, but it's not bad either. The graphics, as always with AVP games, are great. The feel of it is eerie and although not as scary as AVP2, you still get nervous. The gameplay is always top-notch with these games, which I love. I often yell out when playing because something scares the bejesus out of me!
However, for an expansion, the feel of it does not seem true to AVP2. It's much more of a firefight kind of situation, especially when you play Dunya, the Corporate Mercenary... because of this, the shortness of the missions seems even more abbreviated.
Still, I liked the new weapons, especially the sniper rifle and I liked being able to take control of the automatic turrets. The Predator's laser was interesting and better for up-close and personal combat, but hunting the indigenous life on LV-1201 could have been left out, IMHO...seemed a little too 'Primal' for me.
Jumping on the mounted machine gun was cool though, and the dual pistols where really handy. Glad they gave the head-bite function to the Predalien, but playing the Alien is always my least favorite because it tends to give me motion sickness!! Too bad since it's fun to crawl on the walls and scare everyone!
Honestly, my favorite thing about PH were the story lines, and how they sort of completed the holes in the AVP2's story lines. That along with the gameplay (even if it is short) made this a winner for me.
Tale of the Tape: If you really like AVP games, buy this product and you'll have fun. If you're curious, see if you can get it used. It's fun, but I'm not sure it's worth the full price. I bought it used, but AVPGold and AVP2 were purchased at full price.

This is, quite simply, the most addictive game available on the PC. The Multiplayer format is particularly intense and a heck of a lot of fun.

Fans of both the Alien and Predator movies should appreciate this game more than most. The single player missions in particular capture the essence of the films; when playing as human do not turn off the lights and remember it's just a game is my advice.

A few minor tweaks have improved upon AvP2, and gameplay overall is better. Graphics are still fairly average, and this often makes people smirk at the apparent poor quality. However, I would say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder; the game may not have as slick graphics as titles such as Halo or Half Life 2 but it means that you don't have to have a top of the range PC to run it! But as I said, the game is generally better; one thing's for sure, and that's that the multiplayer gaming is AWESOME:

This is the addictive aspect of the game; playing online is so enjoyable that you can get lost in the action. I won't go into detail about the different types of match or characters but suffice it to say that there's enough to cater for most FPS fans whatever their flavour:

Like stealth? Be a predator and suck in your stomach as people walk close enough by you to use your claws. Like to get stuck in? Nothing better than surpising your prey from the shadows and ripping them apart as an alien. Want a mean arsenal? Corporates or Marines both carry enough fire power to make a small hole in the moon if they felt the need.
