I had bought this game knowing nothing about it, but after playing it with low expectations, I can tell you that you can go into this game knowing it's fantastic. The game is a bit similar to Doom or Quake. So if you like an old school shooter, you should do yourself a favor and buy this game without even thinking about it. The graphics are a bit like Half Life's, so if you don't get a headache from Half Life's graphics then this game's visuals shouldn't bother you at all. I recommend playing the marine's campaign first, as it gives you the best experience.
Great Game - NO MULTIPLAYERBrandeX | Nov. 10, 2013 | See all BrandeX's reviews »
The rest of the comments from other users are correct, but several people posted the reviews without actually buying this game here on GMG.
This version on AvP 2000 does NOT HAVE MULTIPLAYER. Forget the comments regarding how fun or exciting the multi-player is, you will not be getting it with this version. This is a single player game only! Only the version released on Steam has multiplayer. I own the GMG version and can confirm, you have been warned.( I mean it - no LAN either, so no tunngle, hamachi, etc. as well.) If you want this game for the multiplayer, this is not the version you are looking for, only the one directly sold on Steam has that.
Rating 75/100 only because the multiplayer has been removed form this version.
One of the best of 2000imasquare | Nov. 9, 2013 | See all imasquare's reviews »
This is one of my favourite old school FPS shooters that I purchased many years ago. It's a well balanced, well thought out game with moments of greatness that surpass it's successors. The alien campaign was probably my favourite of the three, starting out life as a chest burster you eat your way out of a poor saps chest one bite at a time then work your way up.
The marine campaign was excellent, fun and at times making me jump from my chair and fire wildly.
The predator campaign is deliciously fun but still challenging with an array of dominating weapons to slice, dice, electrocute and detonate your foes.
I really enjoyed all three campaigns, the way they weave through each other is smart and interesting.
Although the graphics are dated by today's standards, it has volumetric explosions that I have not seen in many other games since it was released and is eye opening when you see it in the right situation.
Then there is multiplayer which is fast paced and more fun than some produced in 2013!
Put this on your list of games you MUST buy.

From the verity 'game for games sake' Aliens vs Predator 2 is one of the best, it has it all, 3 species, many, many weapons and lethal ways to kill, an attractive story line, somewhat straight forward but very entertaining missions and for the first time a game which scared the hell out of me! But Aliens vs Predator 2 is not just a game for me, the reason i hold it in such high esteem is because it has stayed so faithful to the films. The movement of aliens, predators and marines is all very well structured, the graphics are impeccable, and the sound is incredible. All sound in the game, across all 3 species are EXACTLY the same as off the films, the pulse rifle, motion sensor, hissing of the alien and the strange sounds of the predators machinery have been mastered perfectly to fit the game.
The single player is great, the marine is incredible, its like your thrown straight into the film, from beginning to end you will catch yourself hugging the walls and topping your clip up in the (frequent) event that the corridors will fill with Xenomorphs and predators, it is simply thrilling and is an experience which is truly great, especially if you are a film lover.
The aliens single player is interesting as much as entertaining, be an alien, from face hugger to chest burster to a fully grown perfect killing machine! You can run at super human speed, leap across the screen to an innocent marines throat, and scale the walls and ceilings of the game to find the perfect alien behaviour, something which has kept youths pondering through and since the alien trilogy (+ resurection). Finally the predators single player mode is very fun, his main weapon is that he can cloak and attack with surprise, he battles against his former foe Rykov, a mad ex marine and his army of corporates to retrieve his lost mask, and ultimately to claim his bare skull, into his collection.
The multiplayer truly is a great experience, barricade tunnels with marines equipped with mini guns and flame throwers or patrol the overhanging air vents with a xenomorph, there is so much scope for creativity when playing with 3 species and up to 20 players across many multi player maps that it is made the best game currently for the PC. Not as scary as the single player but way more entertaining, make friends and fight to see which is the superior of the three species.
All in all a GREAT game, my favourite for the past year, the choice of three species across single and multiplayer gaming will keep you entertained for a long, long time, i guarantee, for game lovers a must, for the film lovers it is epic.
Awesome Action Horror Which Aged Wellnightrunner227 | Aug. 8, 2013 | See all nightrunner227's reviews »
Forget the graphics. They may be outdated, but they do the job well enough. What makes this game shine is everything else. The atmosphere is great. Everywhere is super dark, forcing you to use your fuzzy night-vision half the time. Combine that with enemies that literally come out of nowhere, and you've got a game that keeps you on edge while you blast anything that moves. Really the only downside to this game is the lack of a story, but compared to some really botched story-based horror games, that may not be a real downside.
