Aliens Vs. Predator 2
(hx) 09:34 PM EST - Nov,07 2001

Aliens Versus Predator 2 (AvP2) is a 3D action sci-fi shooter, sequel to the popular 1999 action game Aliens Versus Predator, which was inspired by the Aliens and Predator movies. Similarly to the original game, you can play through three separate scenarios - one as a Colonial Marine, another as a Predator, and also as an acid-imbued Alien. In all the game includes three different single-player campaigns, each with seven missions.
Unlike the original game, AvP2 uses a lot of scripted events, best compared to the ones in Half-Life. You will play the classic - repeatedly move from point A to point B, anything in your way, riding on elevators, pushing buttons etc. In the Marine episode you will enjoy your heavy armament of guns (pulse rifle, pistol, shotgun, smart gun, rocket launcher, mini-gun), your hacking device and light amplification goggles. The Predator has also improved over the original, though he is much more vulnerable (both Marine and Alien can kill you very easy now) than before, so must play much more stealthy game than the Marine campaign and use your cloaking ability. The Alien campaign is very interesting, because it's a combination of both stealth and claw&tooth action. As an Alien you will be able to run of the floors, walls, and ceilings. Honestly I had a bit nausea to play Alien first time, but it need some time to get in :)
What about multiplayer? Although the single player feature alone is impressive, even more so is the multiplayer aspect. AvP2 includes all the standard multiplayer options, plus several unique variations There's six different modes to choose from which are deathmatch, team deathmatch, hunt, survivor, overrun, and evac.
What to say more? AvP2 doesn't break out of the standard FPS mold, but it's definitely well good game with great atmosphere focused on terrifying you. If you liked the original game, buy it :) If you prefer more bloody action, wait for Soldier Of Fortune II. However don't expect the game will run smoothly on some old Celeron with Voodoo2. Download single Player / multiplayer demo. For these who already bought it, don't forget to leech AvP2 Retail Patch (v1.0.9.2).


snd: 5/5 - excellent, Predator roar is terrific, great soundtrack that changes with the action
gfx: 4/5 - impressive, prettiest Lithtech-powered game, well-detailed bump-mapped textures, excellent lighting effects, some clipping problems, too dark
playability: 4/5 - excellent atmosphere, good tension building, an intriguing storyline, over 20-30 hours of fun, six different multiplayer modes, laggy servers, some bugs
genre: sci-fi FPS
platform: PC 2CD
release: November 2001
developer: Monolith
publisher: Fox Interactive&Sierra
Very_good
Overall: 81%

As a marine, wow much do you get to interact with your AI-controlled team mates? Do they fight alongside you very much?

Mr. Hitmanposted - Nov, 08 2001 - 22:38
To # 1: As the marine, you're basically on your own like in the original. That's a shame, but still all three campains are equally appealing. Get this game, you will love it.

Ivankoposted - Nov, 09 2001 - 11:44
THIS GAME REALLU ROCKS !!! TERRIFYING ADRENALINE SUPERIOR !!! GO BUY IT ! IT' HIT !

gordhoposted - Nov, 09 2001 - 14:59
only think i dont like about this version is that there are no bots in a multiplayer game. i did hear someone was working on that though.

CS manposted - Nov, 09 2001 - 15:15
just another piece of crap....

Bullyposted - Nov, 09 2001 - 16:37
Great Game !

anonymousposted - Nov, 09 2001 - 16:59
this is da bomb. the graphics are great!!! the game should have given me a little more of a challenge though. it took me 3 hours to beat the game. nonetheless this game is a great game for multiplayer! if you have surround sound, you are going to be scared shi*less!!!!!! A+++++++++++

giannilvposted - Nov, 19 2001 - 02:03

@t0m[Xt]posted - Nov, 24 2001 - 09:29
Great game! Aliens campaing is the best. Great multyplayer, but requeres CD-KEY!

Peteposted - Dec, 01 2001 - 17:58
Played the marine demo and was disappointed of the lighting, or the lack of it, i could not see where i was going or what i was doing, i had to fire bullets from my gun in order to see what is around me. Tried the marine demo, dont thibk i would want to try the full version of the game.

Gaticposted - Dec, 09 2001 - 15:48
For those who never played the origional. This game (IMHO) is more or less based on darkness. If you can't see whats going on, switch view modes, everyone has a "see-in-the-dark" mode :)

FXposted - Dec, 10 2001 - 16:19
Best action of the year.

Lookyposted - Dec, 27 2001 - 17:27
Need a key gen!!!! Did somebody know where i can get one???

Stinkyposted - Dec, 30 2001 - 13:08
This is one great game. Th alien life cycle is a nice touch. The facehugger is pretty neat. The multiplayer can be addictive, and there's always about a hundred servers. If you like te movies or just good shooters, buy this game.

Gonjahposted - Dec, 31 2001 - 00:01
Luv it, but "CD--KEY" feature is a pain; anyone figured how to get around this. & dont say go buy it...... Long live the Pirate Nation. :)

bossposted - Jan, 04 2002 - 08:41
It`s a super game!!! I need a cd key. Please help me. Please.

Rambolokoposted - Jan, 07 2002 - 17:27
The only think i can write from this game is, that is the Best Game I can Play in my whole life. It require much hardware, I recomend : Athlon or Pentium III 800, 256MB and a 32mb Video.

GOD ( cimathel)posted - Jan, 08 2002 - 12:32
Damn Cd-key !! But game is great, i love it ! Alien has the best campaign. Lifecycle rulz!! Marines succks! Ps - Has anyone got key gen ? :))

This games off the hizzy foe shizzy, who ever thinks this games a piece of crap should stick with there monopoly games.

ThunderZtormposted - Mar, 15 2002 - 12:10
Pretty much a standard game, with some nice touches imo. Much like Red Faction had its "youcanblowupeverything" and Max payne had Bullettime, AvP2 has it's 3 campaigns with special abilities. But in overall, the game's nice.. so, excuse me while I go eat some cats to get big... :P

ryoposted - Aug, 12 2002 - 11:36
This game is gritty and hardcore but very rewarding much like Halo on Xbox but with a movie like twist the levels are confusing and at timeís frustrating but cheatís can help in times like this.

kyleposted - Mar, 18 2003 - 01:29
