Xeno's Review #3 - AvP: Extinction

The good:

AvP novelty is cool, playing as Aliens rules, ExoSuits are awesome

The bad:

Generic units, playing as Marines is bland, sub-par audio quality

Summary:

Let me start out by saying that I'm a huge Alien, Predator, and AvP nut. That instantly makes me biased in favor of this game. I held out on buying it for a very long time, but I ultimately broke down and bought a new copy of the game recently. While AvP: Extinction could have been an absolutely stellar game, it ultimately comes across as a reasonably mediocre real-time strategy game.

The plot is pretty basic. It all takes place on the planet LV-742, a Weyland-Yutani mining colony. Predators have been hunting Aliens for a long time, humans show up and have an Alien infestation problem, all t...

Hey! Its finally out! And its great!

The good:

+ graphics are sweet
+ units are awsome and diverse
+ follows the FPS, avp for the pc, very well
+ long story mode
+ diffrent races are balanced
+ mouse and keyboard support!

The bad:

- no multiplayer
- no mapmaker
- complicated

Summary:

To start off, this game is very similar to starcraft (Thats a complement). It is actually somewhat easy to use and if you dont like the controler then use a keyboard and mouse instead because it supports both!
Of corse where starcraft and this differ is that the graphics in this are sweet and I have never seen it run jaged!

As I said above, the units in this are ingenious! Name anything in the old version (motion sensor, pred vision mode, marine weapons, etc...) and its is included in this! There are lots of units and they make use of EVERYTHING in the pc version of AvP. You really have to tr...

Do not even think of trying this game.

The good:

Makes a Good Paperweight.

The bad:

Boring gameplay.
Graphics aren't so great.
Combat System is really really bad and not fun.
Very short Due to the Lack of Missions.
Lack of Multiplayer.

Summary:

Like the title says, please do not try this game. It is very boring and is not even worth looking at. It is not an action game it seems like more of an RTS style game. I love RTS, but console version RTS style games never seem to be all that great. It is also too short.
There are only a few missions for each species(Predators, Aliens, and Humans). I wish it were a better game. I liked the concept Aliens vs. the Predators vs. the Humans, but it doesn't make up for the poor gameplay. As a first or third person shooter the Aliens vs. the Predators vs. the Humans concept would have been very fun...
