My final score is a 9.5 for the following reasons:
Human gameplay is hard and boring
Predator gameplay is confusing
High learning curves for the alien species gameplay
Game is too short
Other that those it's definitely in my top 3 favorite Xbox games, I don't care about the average graphics, the gameplay is awesome, my fav was the alien storyline, it just seemed a lot funner than the rest, AND IT WAS! It was too short, I beat the alien mode in only 2 hours, but that was one of the funnest 2 hours of my life! I definitely recommend this game to any fan of the series or player of Xbox!
I have enjoyed this game. Yes, its not the most polished, the graphics are average. however, the sound is very atmospheric as you would expect with Alien type connections. the gameplay is different providing a different slant on the first person shooter. Playing and the predator and alien is a real gameplay stroke. it makes the gameplay refreshingly different abd a change from the current alternatives on the market. The alien is incredibly difficult to control properly, not because of awkward controls but due to the games and changes in orientation to move on walls and ceiling. It takes a while for you brain to truely be at ease in this format. the game play is frustrating, because death can occur very often, particularly on the marine missions. I await a further game, but with expanded campaigns and a bit more faith in the game to generate sales. I believe with the predator and alien name, they are on to a potential blockbuster game, great game, clearly undervalued by the expert critics. it has the X Factor in a game, could have been a truely great game with a bigger buget and a bit more faith. Graphics 7.5 - average but the alien movement is excellent, Predator visual excellent,
Sound 9.5 - just like the film, great
gameplay - 8.0, short but the gameplay varied and different, Which is a good thing, yes. I believe gameplay is hard, which may deter some game fans,
presentation 7.0, could have had a afew more option, video etc
online N/A - dont play online
The survivor mode is like the game itself in a microcosm. It's rote and uninspired, a desultory thoughtless collage of bits and pieces surgically removed from the movies and dropped lifelessly into a dated engine.
3 campaigns who are all quite enjoyable. Visuals are decent, story is decent, and the gameplay is good. If you are looking for a good singeplayer shooter, this may be for you. If you are looking for a good multiplayer shooter, this may also be yours. Multiplayer is pretty good and a lot of fun.
The human campaign isn't anything special, but the Predator and Xenomorph campaign's are fun and one of a kind. Challenging and interesting, this game definitely pleases me and sticks out of the crowd. Worth a go.
After years of waiting a new game in AvP universe was released and there had been a reason to expect this game, because it was developed by the team that years earlier had given us first AvP for PC.
Commonly to the other games in the series singleplayer campaign is divided into three separate parts. Each one gives unique gameplay and original story. The game provides us with much gore and very good animations that make you want to get more into the game (the one I remember most is alien holding a marine so that facehugger could jump on his face).
Storyline provides us with some new stuff that had never been shown in either movies or games.
At release date the game looked very good, sound effects were true to the genre.
I never tried multiplayer, so after completing singleplayer part there was nothing else for me. Unfortunately, singleplayer left nothing that could make a solid game worth replaying. "Aliens vs. Predator" is not original in any way, but somehow I would recommend it to anyone who likes games and AvP universe. If you don't expect much originality, you will not be disapointed.
When it comes in entertainment AvP takes the absurdity of boring action, to the broken gameplay . I never thought that being a Predator could be so frustrating, the gameplay is broken and fractured . Don't even ask how the Alien part plays , it's just , bad. Meanwhile the Marine version could be a passable terror in the corridors , but after all thats good in short heigh . This game , turned off me in being a believer of the series .
