i absolutely can't wait for this. i'm -still- playing the original 1999 game. unfortunately the mac version of avp 2 didn't really get a good port so i can't speak to that one. but avp1 rocked!
If it's as creepy as the first two, and stays faithful to the 1986 movie........should be good! Looks great in this HD vid anyway.
The original game was great on lan besides some technical issues. Anyone remember lifecycle mode for alliens? till now i haven't found any other fpsgame mode as interesting.
I think I would stay far way from this game. Rebellion has made some crap games lately, real real crappy this game is most likely gonna be a 8.0 or less at the very best. This company doesnt have the means to make anything better than that. Get bioshock 2, dante inferno, promises to be better
cant wait , peopel whove played it have said its awesome [at game events] a fresh FPS ! we need ... need a change from MW2 lol
I hate the fact that you need a very good PC to run these kind of games,and very good PC costs a very good amount of money. So much budget wasted on graphics and stuff,instead they could of used it to develop better graphics engines that don't require so much memory,processing and so on
@Trico34 HAve you actually wtched the video? Yes there is multiplayer on PC, X Box & PS3 versions, up to 16 players I think, this is one of the main features im exited about, 1999 Original PC version was amazing, and to some extent still is as gamers still play it now. This 2009 version the developers have been working constant on upgrading graphics and multiplayer maps & modes, they have taken 10 years to make sure they got it right and they havnt failed. The CGI movies are great, graphically and gameplay, I have 3 saved games on the go, one as Alien, one as Pretator and one as Mercenary (my favourate). The Mercanary is the Typical looking FPS with the Alien/Predetor environments and twists. Aliens rule, walll climbing helps alot and graphically again amazing with great shadow efffects. Last the Predetor, Enjoyable to play, loads of gagets but not so much of a weapon selection compared to the Mercenary's but the 3 visions and cloaking ability works well when stalking your next victim, ready to unleash the beast :). I would wait for the latest release of the PS3 version because it will include all bug fixes, updates and all addons available to date. If on low budget get this 1 a cheap must have game IMO.
I loved these movies as a kid so this game will be a must play. It's sort of "old school" for me, so sadly, not sure if it will be a purchase but definitely a must play.
should i get it or not? too many good games coming out soon!!!!! :(((( vote plz thump up yes thump down no :D
This is going to be great! Im looking forward to just being a Marine and just the whole survival aspect would keep you at attention while playing. It just wouldn't have the same intensity if you playing as the Predator because your already a geared up killing machine. But don't get me wrong its going to be gnarly ripping through Marines as the Alien or Predator :D
God i hope this game delivers the same amount of value for money that the original did. That game kicked some serius ass for quite a couple of years
Any of you remember the Adventure game of Aliens? It was a long long time ago, I believe Dark Horse published it (the same ones that published Steve Perry's Aliens books and Alien Vs Predator books) I pondered for some time about getting the Atari Jaguar just for AVP. But I eventually played it on the Sega Saturn. The PC version would crash on me even on a P4 2.0 with a GeForce Ti 4200. I haven't tried the Steam version, but if it doesn't crash like the old AvP1 PC game, I need to give it a shot. Now if they can make another Bethesda Terminator/Skynet game.. *wishes*
This will be GotY for me in the FPS genre, loved the first game and the second one...and have spent mindless of hours, lurking in the dark as a Queen vs 4 of my marine friends, scared to shiat in the darkness ;)
F***'n SIIIIICK! lol I simply cannot wait for this! I gotta get the original on Steam (my old copy won't work on my new PC), but I hope Monolith's epic sequel get's put on steam, as well. It was my personal favorite of the two.
It'll be interesting to see how this turns out...i'm definitely looking forward to it..if all is done well it should be creepy and atmospheric as well as exciting...can't wait..
It's AvP GE that's on steam my good chum, not Monolith's AvP 2. I must say though, i bought it and it's just as good as i remember, they even threw in a few extra touches. Can't wait for them to patch the Multiplayer component in. This new one looks amazing, building on the solid foundation they layed down ten years ago. @LuckyDenver I don't really know what you mean by cliche shooter, seeing as there is little that is infact cliche about it, unless you are referring to the Marine's more "traditional" FPS gameplay. As far as i know, no one other than Rebellion (with the exception of monolith) has made an FPS quite like the AvP series of games.
for anyone not aware ,,the old game AVP2 is on steam now for $5, the devs have recently patched it for widescreen support as well as other things. i bought it and now im even more hyped fo AVP3 as its great. Respect to the Rebellion for updating this ten year old game recently as well.
Looks like it will at the very least be a solid, if cliche, shooter. I'm anxious to get my hands on it.
i hope they do the survivor modes from the original, where you were camped in a huge open area as marines, and you hear the aliens and alien predator hybrids growling from a distance then bam they're on you inside of 10 seconds, hundreds of em from every direction, then you'd get queens rampage after you and stuff, very much like nazi zombies, only you didn't have any defensible positions, you were given chainguns and hard as hell gameplay and just had to survive.
@HiSaZuL , are u mentally challenged?? seriously.... have u even played an AVP game?? do u even play video games?? or are u just here to troll because u lack recreation and have no job that can get u a few bucks to buy a game. Ur pathetic.
