Decent action horror titleGmen | Jan. 4, 2014 | See all Gmen's reviews »
Very few games based on the epic Aliens series have ever been good, and the same can be said about the -- very limited by comparison -- games based on the Predator franchise.
Each species in the game has its strengths and weaknesses, forcing you do adopt different playstyles. Very few FPS titles can boast this, even today.
The most fun is to be had in the Alien campaign, which is a bit of a cakewalk, frankly. You have unmatched agility, and have no problem taking on the far inferior colonial marines using sheer stealth and speed to outwit them, although you are best off picking them off one by one. The Colonial Marine campaign is no doubt the hardest and most atmospheric, and if you want to experience what Jim Cameron’s Aliens is like, with a bunch of killer Xenomorphs hunting you down, then this is the challenge for you. The predator campaign is much like the alien campaign – it’s not going to be much of a challenge, unless you come up against a lot of resistance.
Graphically the game hasn’t aged that well, but to play the game and listen to sounds that are taken straight from the films and be absorbed into the lore of the AVP franchise is worth the price of admission.
I would say that this is the ultimate AVP title to own, but the lack of multiplayer, something the original version of the game was noted for, is absent.

Desplite the lack of multiplayer, the game is very fun. The graphics while dated they still get the job done, and the enviroments really immerse you into the game (specially in the marine campain.)
I really wish the multiplayer was still included with this release, but as it stands AVP2000 is still worth your coin and gameplaywise it still has what it takes to entertain.

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.
