"Three separate campaigns make for some variety; Close-up kills are wonderfully gross; Multiplayer can be good fun." - GameSp
"Rebellion has built AvP around its multiplayer, which is both well-constructed and surprisingly well-balanced." - StrategyInformer
Bringing the legendary war between two of science-fiction's most popular characters to FPS fans, AvP delivers three outstanding single player campaigns and provides untold hours of unique 3-way multiplayer gaming.
Experience distinctly new and thrilling first person gameplay as you survive, hunt and prey in the deadly jungles and swamps surrounding the damned colony of Freya's Prospect. As the Marine, you'll experience a claustrophobic and terrifying experience where light is your friend, but there's never enough. However, the United States Marine Corps are humanity's last line of defense, and as such they are armed to the teeth with the very latest in high explosive and automatic weaponry.
As the Predator, you will stalk from the shadows and from above, passing athletically through the treetops to ambush your victims. Although equipped with an array of powerful, exotic weapons and tracking equipment, honor ultimately dictates that you must get in close and take your trophies face to face.
As the most deadly species in the universe, the Alien offers you the chance to play as the very stuff of nightmares - the monster in the dark swarming forward with countless others, jaws like a steel trap and claws like blades.
Play all sides off against each other in a series of unique 3-way online modes and go tooth-to-claw-to-pulse rifle in the reinvention of one of multiplayer gaming's defining moments.
I had some funJokin93 | March 30, 2014 | See all Jokin93's reviews »
I’m not sure whether this game is honestly enjoyable or if my expectations going into it were were so low that I was able to enjoy it.
The story is based around 3 campaigns(that may or may not be interlocking, some parts seem that way while others don’t), one for each race and each with their own separate playstyles.
The human campaign started out really creepy, like something taken straight out of Alien, but then quickly became a really fun shooter.
The alien campaign was the least enjoyable of the 3, in theory it should have been really fun because it has you climbing up walls and running on the roof but it is really disorienting.
The predator campaign was also enjoyable but the stealth elements were pretty much useless good thing the melee combat was enjoyable. It flirts with outstaying its welcome and it is almost too tedious but it ends at a good point and it’s not too dragged out.
Overall I feel like this was a fun game, nothing close to amazing but enjoyable.

There are three different single player campaigns, one for Marine, one for Alien and one for Predator. The campaign will help you beef up your skills for these characters when you get to multiplayer where its mayhem. The coolest character to use is the Predator, he's got all the cool gadgets like the shoulder laser blaster, some ninja type throwing stars, a spear and claws. The three characters all have different advantages and disadvantages when playing multiplayer, like Aliens are quick and can jump and climb upside down in areas, while the Marines have radar on there guns to detect nearby enemies and can get a auto tracking gun to shoot enemies down. Disadvantages of the Predator are that he's harder to control moving around since you need to choose where you want to jump before you do it, so its not automatic. The graphics of this game are still good compared to current gen games and this is a much better Aliens game than Colonial Marines. Definite buy if you're a fan of the Alien or Predator movies.
Modern rendition of a classicAkiMatti | March 21, 2014 | See all AkiMatti's reviews »
When I knew only the 1999 version, it was the ultimate Alien game for me. Especially the Marine campaign was very thrilling and scary. I had high hopes for this game, especially since the developer was Rebellion like with the original.
Unfortunately, this game didn't fulfil all my expectations. The aliens are not as fast in this new version, which made the first one so thrilling. I still hate the face-huggers, though. The game can be pretty demanding of you machine which is not good for a fast paced fps.
Still, it is pretty well done, all in all, and the campaigns feel like good takes on the characters. You can get a load of enjoyment out of this if you don't expect too much but take it as it is.
A Fairly Decent FPS Gamerianankaa | Feb. 5, 2014 | See all rianankaa's reviews »
The best part of this game is how you can play as three different species, each with their own uniqueness. The Aliens with their speed and close combat characteristics; The Predator with a more stealhty, cautious approach; and the human as the most "tradiotional" FPS character. It might take a while to master the three species--especially how you can also employ the environment for your advantage. Unfortunately, sometimes the environment design proves to be very challenging and tedious to be utilised. The single player campaign itself can be played in a relatively short duration. Thus, anyone expecting this game to be a single player time-killer will be dissappointed. The strength is in the multiplayer aspect.

This game was developed by Rebellion who made the original Aliens vs Predator. The game is solid and the campaigns are very atmospheric and enjoyable. The multiplayer can be fun but tedious. An example of this is that marines can easily knock back aliens which gives them room to take them out which removes from the atmosphere of the game, aliens can also be difficult to control. I would recommend this game just for the single player campaigns. The multiplayer is pretty much non existent now.
