If however you have any experience with the genre this game will be a complete let down. I've been playing this game for about the last twelve hours with a few days previous where I played it on and off but it wasn't until I read some of these reviews that it jumped out at me. 'It feels off'. The way the previous games sucked you in was with the immersion, the dialogue, the story, the sound effects, even the combat. None of these are present in this game. There is no sound effect when changing vision modes as a predator. The AI is so bad that standing on a 1 foot tall box causes aliens to circle around you, trying to figure out how to get up there so they can attack you.
Meanwhile the dialogue breaks the mood every time. As a Marine your superiors (A 19 year old girl with a New England accent that emphasizes her own name 'Tequila' like she is Latino or something. I kept imagining a native Mexican slapping her every time she said it.) Anyway, she'll call you up on the radio and tell you to abandon the barricade where all the automated turrets are at (Because it's not safe) and go stand on the other side of the building, alone, by an elevator that simply won't open while she desperately tries to remotely fix it. Apparently you need to stand there until something scary happens or until you find a box to stand on. If you get attacked by aliens, don't worry, they'll circle around you hissing like cats for a while before one of them decides to approach and duel you in scripted combat.
Bored yet? Why not sift through the audio diaries that are littered about the complex.Read more ›
Honestly, the single player is a waste of time apart from using it to learn the control scheme :(
But if you're like me and you prefer to compete online, AvP is fantastic. Each race feels authentic and fun to play, yet they are very well balanced. It is strategy, rather than reflexes that will give you an edge in multiplayer.
Marines- their physical abilities are lacking- they cannot sprint or jump very well. But they make up for it with a motion sensing radar and a decent selection of weaponry. The winning strategy is to stick together and engage other races at range.
Alien- Exceptionally fast, can jump and climb and crawl on walls etc. They have a "sixth sense" which lets them see enemies through walls at a certain range, and their melee attacks are exceptionally quick and potent. To win as an alien, you have to make use of your speed and agility to get close enough/behind other races in order to kill them.
Predator- Predators can cloak themselves to hide from humans, can jump around a little better than aliens, have solid melee, and a wide variety of equipment and vision modes. To win, you have to stay cloaked and jump around in order to avoid detection by marines, and stay in high and/or well lit places to avoid getting killed by an alien. Also, it's all about knowing what equipment to use against your prey:
-marines are best killed with the spear and mines, heat vision
-aliens are best killed with mines, disc, and plasma caster, alien vision
The graphics may be just OK and the single player may be lame, but AvP is a pleasure to play online.
The 2010 version is, I'm quite sad to say, an utter disappointment to this long-time fan of the franchise.
I will point out the good things about this game first.
The environment is beautiful and perfect. Everything looks like it is supposed to look.
The story line is pretty good.
The sound is great. Everything sounds like it was sampled from the movies.
Cut scenes are great.
I LIKE that Marines can only carry 2 weapons plus a pistol. I also like that you have to hold a special key to run and the Marine can only run a certain distance before tiring and having wait before running again.
And.... well.... that's the only good things I can say about this game.
To be honest, I have only played about halfway through the Marine campaign. But so far, the gameplay is terrible. There is no crouch. Seriously. Hitting the "Jump" key seems like it causes the Marine to lift the equivalent of about 6 in off the floor. I realize his is armored and carrying a weapon but come on.
It seems the developers tried to get away from the "pickup health and armor" that is the norm for 1st person shooters. I give them credit for TRYING to think outside the box. The Marine has 1 bar for health. It is replenished by using stim-packs. There is no bar for Armor. I understand the devs wanting to do something different. Fine. But the Marines wear armor. There needs to be some way to repair it. As it is, the armor plays no role in your character. That is supposed to be one of the things that differentiates you from the Alien and the Predator.
The environment is entirely too dark.Read more ›

Better than some of the reviews I've read. It's a hard game, true. But once you survive the first few areas, the game gets really interesting. It's scary too.Published 3 months ago by Rob G
