About the product
- As the Marine, you'll experience a claustrophobic and terrifying experience where light is your friend, but there's never enough; however, the United States Marine Corps are humanity's last line of defense, and as such they are armed to the teeth with the very latest in high explosive and automatic weaponry
- As the Predator, you will stalk from the shadows and from above, passing athletically through the treetops to ambush your victims; although equipped with an array of powerful, exotic weapons and tracking equipment, honor ultimately dictates that you must get in close and take your trophies face to face
- As the most deadly species in the universe, the Alien offers you the chance to play as the very stuff of nightmares, the monster in the dark swarming forward with countless others, jaws like a steel trap and claws like blades
- Play all sides off against each other in a series of unique 3-way online modes and go tooth-to-claw-to-pulse rifle in the reinvention of one of multiplayer gaming's defining moments

As a marine this comes across as a pretty standard first person shooter though the atmosphere is great, especially the sound effects, quite consistent with the Alien movies were people are peering into the darkness when all of a sudden BOOM there's an alien right in your face or worse, right behind you! They literately are coming out of the god&$*# walls! I recommend playing as the marine's first until you get a feel for the game. Playing as the alien first, as I did, then going back to the marine makes you feel incredibly ponderous.
As a predator you specialize in stealth, leaping from tree to tree getting close enough to ambush your prey, or blast them to bits from a distance with your shoulder mounted energy weapon. Again the sound effects are spot on. Although, of the three, I prefer the predators the least. Maybe I just need more practice but they seem least effective at actually killing anything, especially aliens. Probably because their melee attacks are more complex. Given time, I might change my attitude a bit, but for me, they are least fun so far.
Playing as the alien is the most fun I've had so far with this game. These guys are totally ambushed-based and require a fair amount of patience not only to master controlling the alien but in quieting waiting unseen in the shadows for just the right time to pounce and not get riddled with machine gun fire. Indeed, the darkness is your friend. Seems more tactical/puzzle solving in a way and that appeals to me. The transition between floor, wall, and ceiling is usually pretty smooth but can be disorientating sometimes, even after you get used to it, especially considering the alien's blinding speed. It can get a bit repetitive though if you play long enough, especially seeing as how the marine A.I. are kinda dumb/easy to trick and predictable some times.
It's better than I expected. Graphics are okay and obviously, given the subject, very gory. The sounds are great and very consistent with the movies. The story is good enough and told from three different perspectives. Voice acting was a little bland, I'd also call it good enough for this kind of game but most of the marines and civilians don't really seem quite terrified enough given their about to be beheaded or, worse, have a intimate encounter with a facehugger. With a bit more money behind it, more polish, smarter AI's, a longer, more complex story and campaigns it could have been better. But, given some of the movies its based off of, it also could have been A LOT worse so 4/5 stars.
Not bad, guys. Not bad.
I chose to play through the Colonial Marine campaign first, as I figured that it would be the most challenging and provide glimpses into the other two campaigns along the way. Although all three campaigns begin with the same cutscene (Weyland setting fire to a big bag of steaming trouble for every living thing for the rest of the game), they diverge into their own stories and wildly different gameplay.
As the Colonial Marine, you quickly begin to value the creeping sense of paranoia that builds whenever you enter one of the many dark areas in the game, because it is that sense that keeps you checking every corner and vent for the unmistakable hiss and sneer of the xenomorph. The sounds reproduced from the movies are dead-on - everything from the screech of a wounded alien, to the digital ping of the proximity sensor that quickens as unseen monsters close-in on you in the darkness. As a human, you have about as many special abilities as you have right now reading this, only with a couple of different guns and ALL THE FLARES HUMANITY CAN BUY. Flares can be helpful, and they do add another touch of authenticity to the Colonial Marine campaign, but...c'mon. They don't even temporarily blind your enemies; they just seem to add one more reason why humans are considered the most annoying prey. Compared to the special abilities of the other species, it's just embarassing. On the bright side, your weapons work well enough when you get a better sense of how your enemies tend to move. I found that the "burst fire, face punch, reload, burst fire," method works well against packs of aliens, who are all startlingly agile and can easily clamber along the ceiling to get the drop on you.
As the Yautja warrior (that's the Predator for any of you who aren't total nerds for some reason), you are tasked with a rite of passage; basically, kill everything. If you can remember that, you're golden. You can start having some real fun here, as you bound cartoonishly in stealth mode from one spot to another, spotting your prey with thermal vision and luring them into isolated areas with mimicked human voices so you can sneak up behind them and tear their heads off. Remember, kids, it's not a murder simulator if there are lasers and aliens involved. Unfortunately, your shoulder-mounted pulse cannon only gives you a few shots before it needs to be recharged, and in order to do that, you have to find one of a few one-time-use-only interactive spots on the map. This was disappointing, but it did add challenge to the Yautja gameplay. When in doubt, get slashy with the blades and use them to block incoming attacks from clawing aliens.
The xenomorph (alien) gameplay focuses far more on stealth, even going so far as to encourage you to destroy environmental lights to darken rooms, making it more difficult for those gun-toting humans to see you. Pheromones allow you to detect humans through walls and other obstacles, so you often see them as human-shaped outlines first. From there, you can charge them viciously, or lure them off to their separate doom one-by-one. Hide in vents, hiss to draw their attention, then pounce on the straggler. The biggest drawback to the xenomorph campaign is that it can quickly get ridiculous when moving quickly around enemies in dark corridors because you can walk on the ceiling, and transitioning from the floor, to the wall, to the ceiling is an easy way to lose your orientation and become another dead bug for Bill Paxton to brag about. Sneaking up on humans allows you to deploy a "face-hugger" and saddle the victim with some inevitably severe chest pain. It's a bit repetitive, but if you've always wanted to do it, wait no more.
If you're a big fan of the Alien Trilogy, the Predator movies, the Alien vs. Predator movies, or just really into sci-fi action, pick up a copy and make sure your volume is up...because hearing an unseen Yautja warrior mimick a human laugh just to make you crap yourself is worth the money.
I really liked the simple story. & enjoyed the history of the Predators they show.
The atmosphere was really really good. there is NOTHING like hearing the sounds of the Marine guns or
Predator in his hunting vision or hearing an Alien scream as you shoot them.
executions as Aliens or Predator were always hilarious & gorey.
weapons are nice!!! ohhhh that smart gun !!!!
Aliens are very sneaky & fast !!!!
music gets you right in the mood! you think you're AHNOLD!!
The bad is:
graphics are pretty good but could have been better.
wish the game had more enemies & better a.i.
(sometimes the bots autolock but hey it just makes it tougher)
in the end...
i paid like $16 for this game, & i had a blast!!!
GET IT !
if you're an Aliens or Predator fan, it's a must!
AND PLAY THIS WITH THE LIGHTS OF!!!!
