Aliens vs. Predator

Publisher: SEGA
Systems: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3

Sci-Fi fans have long yearned for a standout product from the Aliens/Predator canon. While the last few movies fell short, the franchise remains. The latest attempt is Aliens vs. Predator, the game. You can play as an Alien, Predator or colonial marine. Each path is very different: Predators are all about stealth, using invisibility and heights; Aliens are super fast and deadly up-close; marines are armed to the teeth in the classic third-person perspective. The sounds and character effects are ripped straight from the movies, and add an immersive feel to the action. Unfortunately, the melee attacks for all classes aren't as smooth as they should be and the game is sometimes muddy looking and uninspired in level design. On the positive side the multiplayer action is fun though not very deep.

Score: 7/10
