    Not much strategy here, build as many units as you can before the other guys do. Would have been a lot better with multiplayer.

    After beating this game only two words come to mind. Half @$$ed. The sound is hideous and so are the graphics. Even the kills are boring; just a few lazer shots and a bunch of green goup or blood. The poor level designs and lack of strategy will bore you to tears after a couple of days. However, the first half (10 hours of gameing) is entertaining enough to be worthy of a rental.

    A well thought-out game which would have benefited from a month of 2 more in production. EA has to make a sequel! Just overhaul the graphics, incorporate a solid multiplayer mode and tweak the balance for the three races. AVP is a killer license and this is a pretty decent attempt.

    This is a great game hands-down. Having control of three different races is cool. (PREDS RULE!) Cool new types of aliens and preds and awesome upgrades. Now the bad news. Level design take a hard punch in the stomach. There are too many tall mountains and trick paths. When you tell troops to go past a mountain they break apart.(Which normally gets one group massacred) The last marine This is a great game hands-down. Having control of three different races is cool.

When you tell troops to go past a mountain they break apart.(Which normally gets one group massacred) The last marine level and the last predator level are unrealistically difficult.Some balancing issues.Other then all of that it is a great game. Not worth $50. More like $40. Expand

    A really fun enjoyable, challenging game. I think is't cool how you breed and call for reinforcements when you want. Graphics aren't that flash it could be better by you actually fighting not it doing itself. Still pretty good game.

    The game mechanics are so badly crippled that it probably doesn't even deserve to be called a strategy game.
  2. This game has the basics down with good gameplay and excellent controls. What it's missing is the icing; the graphics and sound to back up that gameplay.

    By taking two killer licenses and placing them in a real-time strategy setting, Zono Inc. has crafted a compelling, addictive, and challenging-as-hell game.
