WHY DID YOU DO THIS REBELION???!!!
You had the greatest Aliens game ever made, all you had to do was improve visuals: Not dumb it down for 8 year olds to play!!
In case you're wondering, Aliens Vs Predator (3), because they were too stupid to add that in, even though Aliens Vs Predator 2 came out before this) is a First Person Shooter, being the 3rd title in the AVP series & is a dumbed down piece of horse-manure in comparison to the other AVP games.
I had High hopes for this, but it is VERY dissapointing. The Combat is just "RUN UP TO ENEIMY & FAIL YOUR CLAWS IN HIS DIRECTION UNTIL S/HE/IT DIES!!!" Theres no combos or different attack styles, like in the previous games, it's just punch-punch-punch until you or they die. The environments despite looking pretty (like THAT matters) are stupid because the campaign reuses THE SAME ENVIRONMENTS 3 times over.
The Marine campaign has suffured the worst, because Rebellion was spending too much budget into not being discriminatory to make a better gameplay.
Case in point: you can block xeno's attacks.
In Aliens law (& the other games) you could barley kill a xeno with a gun, but YOUR FISTS???? Were they on drugs?
Also, alot of things don't work:
The Pulse rifle (apart from looking like cr*p) takes FOREVER to kill xenos. In the past games, they took some punishment, but not too much.
Also: YOU CAN'T CROUCH. Just let that sink in.
The Alien has REGENERATING HEALTH (when in AVP2 you had to eat to survive) & that alone is stupid enough, but Dumbing down the combat to button mashing & pressing a button for an unsatisfying kill move that takes 10 to finish & let enemies get the drop on you is the nail in the cofin.
The Predator, however, I WILL say in it's defence has SOME improvment:
Although the melee combat is dumbed down, the Weapons have some refinment to how they're layed out:
There's no fumbling through your inventory to get 1 of 17 weapons: it's now just 4 easy to use & access weapons: Your Wrist blades, Throwing Disk, Plasma Caster & Spear-gun. & your cloaking & vision modes.
I must say I DO like how they made it simpler & not as complicated. It's not dumbing down if it was originally so hard to understand.
but overall it's just not a worthy AVP game.
BY ITSELF when Compared with the dreaded C*ck of Duty Recycled ♥♥♥♥ fare it is a 2.5/5 to a 3/5 stars.
But in comparison to the other AVP games (& if you are a fan of those)
*sound of gunshots*
