Initial thoughts on AVP

Posted by krazy_kyle (716 posts) -

So I rented Aliens Vs Predator, a fps that looks quite dodgy and a game which most people were skeptical about just before purchasing it. I have to say I'm glad I rented it as it definitely doesn't live up to the fact that its worthy at buying at full price. That doesn't mean it's a BAD game however as it keeps me compelled, not throught the mediocre story that you get in this game but through the fact that I find it quite fun besides  the alien taking a while to get used to control-wise, your fellow marines being EXTREMELY stereotypical jarheads and Rebellion struggling with finding something for the predator to do. That what I've wondered as In the marine or alien campaign you rarely see the predator. I blame interspecies racisim... Anyway moving on! 
 
By far I've realised that the marine campaign is much more entertaining than the other two campaigns with predator's being the least enjoyable. Partially because I like blasting xenomorphs heads off with the shotty or picking off face huggers with my pistol, which is crap for pretty much anything else btw. The alien is still quite fun to play, as i get some sort of satisfaction biting off the faces of scared humans with the least satisfying voice acting, running around aimlessly missing me when im just two metres in front of them on a pretty low ceiling. 
 
Anyway initial thoughts out of the way I shall go to play some more of this game and enjoy more human brains, nom nom.

I found the Predator to me the only enjoyable experience, but then I'm a fan of stealth games and the whole Predator campaign is based around taking out your targets efficiently without being shot up, more-or-less.
 
Playing a marine is boring as it's just like every other Sci-fi marine game, and the aliens control like crap.
