  • Summary: On a routine hunt on Planet LV1201 a lone Predator finds a mysterious Artifact with the power to keep the savage Aliens at bay, and as legend has it, even control their minds. The Predator triggers a stasis field, trapping him for 500 years until Dunya, a human Corporate mercenary, unwittingly frees him and escapes with the Artifact. Meanwhile, a lone PredAlien seeks to destroy the Artifact to preserve the sanctity of the Hive. Now the hunt is on to retrieve the mystical Artifact before Dunya escapes back to safety.

  1. This iteration is good enough to make Matt holler with delight, but the action seems to have been turned up to a frantic pace. [Oct 2002, p.93]
  2. The story's perplexing, the AI is unimaginative, and the Predator and Predalien missions just aren't that interesting. [Nov 2002, p.146]
  3. If you found the first game to be very challenging, this expansion has the potential to frustrate you to no end. It also lacks the elements that made the first game suspenseful and packed with atmosphere.
  4. 58
    This expansion seems to ignore most of what was good in the original and instead concentrate on fast-paced, frustrating, and nearly mindless action.
  5. Primal Hunt is going to take the Best Blueballs award for not delivering on what could have been a great expansion. [Nov 2002, p.118]
  6. 40
    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.
  7. First off the Solo Missions, suck. There is no suspense like in the first, and just jumps into BORING action.

    Aliens franchise is strong enough to beat things like this expansion pack and sequels like Alien versus predator and colonial marines; in fact only the first 2 games are worth it...let's see what's going to happen with Alien it gonna be a classic or another expendable adventure? Let's see... Expand

    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. Expand

    Get the game, don't get the expansion. Had to resort to cheats to get past the turret part where you're waiting for Dimitri. So badly done, first off, even if you carefully spend your ammo. It's bugged, after a while your rounds stop hitting the aliens, leading to death. If you go ape and spray everywhere, you'll run out of ammo and blam dead. There's no health and no ammo pickups, so there's no effective way forward for me now other then to cheat or to restart the entire fucking game. Pathetic sh*t really. Expand
