    This is one of the poorest expansion packs for any game in recent memory. It’s so bad, in fact, that I want my money back.

    Middling level design along with an over-reliance on mobbing the player with nearly impossible situations make Hunt a disappointing release.
  3. Offering no new gameplay styles, limited map enhancements, and unorthodox NPC AI, Aliens vs Predator 2: Primal Hunt seems to be just that, a primal update to an excellent storyline driven series.

    Primal Hunt is a collection of annoying "Quickload" moments resulting in a thoroughly annoying game. [Nov 2002, p.84]
  5. First off the Solo Missions, suck. There is no suspense like in the first, and just jumps into BORING action.

    When a studio that has nothing to do with original game's success desperately tries to expand a universe, such bad games as "Primal Hunt"When a studio that has nothing to do with original game's success desperately tries to expand a universe, such bad games as "Primal Hunt" happen. This expansion in any way can't be called a good pack. AVP 2 by Monolith was a perfect game that introduced various original scenarios that years since walkthrough leave good memories. Thing I do remember about "Primal Hunt" is that it was extremely short (only 3 levels for each species), boring and not original. Yes, there could be some more story told about events that took place in AVP 2, but this pack does not achieve this goal. Full Review »
