  • Summary: In this third-person action-adventure, players assume the role of an elite lone Predator with an arsenal of exotic weaponry and equipment at their disposal. The game gives access to advanced technologies with the Predator's wrist computer including Pred-tech/thermal vision modes and cloaking, to track, stalk and annihilate both humans and Aliens. Both classic and completely new futuristic weapons such as wrist blades, laser trip mines and dual shoulder cannons give players the ability to eradicate all traces of the Alien race. With co-op multiplayer mode players are be able to team up with friends wirelessly to play as the Predator’s comrades, attempting to withstand hordes of attacking Aliens. To add to the game’s challenging features, an honor point system evaluates the player's success based on how closely they adhere to the Predator's value system. The higher the honor achievement, the more weapon and armor upgrades available to the player. [Sierra] Collapse

  1. Concentrates on totally accommodating casual players, at the expense of entertaining fans. [Jan 2008, p.122]
  2. Alien vs. Predator: Requiem is not a bad game, it’s just not the best game in the AvP universe.
  3. The last AvP game was released years ago and put forward a much stronger effort than this. The presentation is good, and at times, it had the makings of an honestly frightening game, but the difficulty level is scaled back so much that it ceases to be fun.
  4. Although Aliens vs Predator: Requiem is pretty straightforward, you’d probably enjoy it if you are just after a mindless shoot out.
  5. Nothing about this game is horrible, but nothing is really that awesome. Alien vs. Predator: Requiem is just a mediocre action title for the PSP.
  6. The hand-holding map, health boosts, and high-powered arsenal sap the fun out of what could have been a decent third-person shooter.
  7. Aliens vs Predator: Requiem is certainly of a lower quality than its predecessors, almost setting new standards for how boring a licensed title can be. Unfortunately this is the worst thing a game can be, and mundane will kill not only enjoyment you may have with the title, but also start to dig away at your appreciation for the franchise.
