Alien vs Predator 2 (AVP2) is the long-awaited sequel to the intense and thrilling spectacle that was Alien vs Predator. If the first game didn't have you jumping with fear, the second is sure to give you that fright. You've just got be strong enough to venture into depths of space once more.
Like the first version, AVP2 plays on the relationships of alien, predator and marine and their very different goals, but unlike the original, it appears there will be an additional three characters to turn your hand to.
The single-player game still looks as fast, scary and merciless. The formula of having three sets of missions from the different species' point of view is still present. While battling through, 21 new single-player levels are still as tough and gruelling as before.
The original was sometimes criticised for its approach to multiplayer gaming. This was only really addressed when the publishers released a gold edition. Here however, there is an abundance of levels--12 to be exact--and they include the usual array of Deathmatch, Species Team Maps and Capture the Flag, as well as the choice of 10 different characters.
With improved weaponry and fighting style--the alien still hasn't got any weapons--the gameplay looks set to be as good as if not better than the original. Couple this with what appears to be impressive graphics and sound--the motion detector bleeps still get you--and you could be in for the one of the biggest games on your PC. --Jason Denwood
Alien vs. Predator 2 is the long awaited sequel to Alien vs. Predator, arguably the most intense and terrifying game of 1999. This new title combines elements, creatures, and settings from the hit movies: Aliens; and Predator, in three unique, interlocking, character-driven stories where aliens, predators, and human marines share one powerful trait-the enduring will to survive. Each story unfolds from the perspective of a young Marine Corporal, a newly emerged Alien, and a Predator on the hunt. Self-preservation is a priority for the characters but each has its own underlying objective-the marine to find other humans, the Alien to save its queen and race, and the Predator to find distinction and honour in the hunt, And only one species can emerge victorious

Alien (Xenomorph) - Eat as many humans and predators as possible in order to keep up your energy to save your queen. The places that you can hide in order to pounce on your prey leave you feeling vulnerable in your own home! Great idea starting as a face hugger; going right through the alien lifecycle.
Predator - You feel near godlike with the powerful weapons and capabilities that you posses.
Marine (Human) - You really have to be brave to play as the marine. I recall having to stop playing late at night because my heart was racing.
The one problem, though, is the excessive loading time. If you are blessed with a DVD drive then use that instead. Initial loading time will be reduced significantly.
A must for any real gamer looking for serious action with a fast PC and 128mb or more memory.
I'm off to play AvP2... Bye!
The story goes: a top-secret research lab on planet LV1211 ceases all communications, so the Marines are sent to investigate. On landing they discover the lab torn to pieces, with no human life remaining. Close-by, they find a second research centre (even more secret than the super top-secret one), dedicated to the experimental research of, you guessed it, our facehugging friends. In fact, it's a natural Alien Hive, and as it happens, the Predators have taken to dropping in for their equivalent of tea and biscuits - hunting down and annihilating Aliens. Surprised to find humans on the planet, some Predators are captured, and the stage is set.
Depending on the side you take, the story develops around a young marine Corporal, a newly-born Alien, and a Predator on the hunt. Interestingly, this time the three stories are interwoven, and rather than separate levels, the same story is played out from the three different sides. The marine's aim is to find survivors from the laboratory's catastrophe; the Alien seeks to save its queen and propagate its race; and the Predator looks only for distinction and honour in the hunt, whilst freeing its captured fellows.
The game will feature a brand spanking new version of the LithTech engine (now a product of a separate development company), which includes 32-bit animated light mapping allowing high-quality dynamic environments. Let's hope they make better use of it than Legends of Might and Magic.Read more ›
AvP was spooky. AvP2 is damn scary. The sounds in this one, particularly the use of human voices chattering nervously over the intercom, create an atmosphere most games would die for. The aliens appear sporadically, with little warning, and always from the last hidey hole you'd expect. These aliens are smart. They're smarter than you. And your ammo is always low. This is a game to play in the dark with the lights off and the volume up.
Everything that could be improved has been, and nothing has been lost in the process. Each and every level of this game feels like a real place you're moving through right out of the movies. It stops being a game, actually, as soon as the motion tracker starts to blip the first time. After that it's an intense, pitched battle for your life, with an integrated plotline that spans each three species, yet never feels too scripted as many such games do.
Everything you saw in the movies is here, from people dying on the walls of alien hives, to eggs hatching when you get too close. Each species is clearly delineated, so you actually feel like you're not merely playing a glorified human when playing as alien or Predator.Read more ›
The Marine has to be the mother of all three species. The levels are crammed with suspense, and like I said- you have to be suicidal or just plain crazy if you run around like a lost tourist. The atmosphere is just so full of suspence, you can't turn a corner without reloading your shotgun. It's the type of levels that you don't go on after dark... I'll give y'all an example...
You walk into a corridor. It's dark. Two doors lie ahead. One reads CLOSED. You press the door open button and it slides open...youre heart suddenly skips- CALM DOWN! you think. Those blips on your radar are just the doors... Ahead it's dark. You toss a flare to the ground and step into the blue light. As you approach the next door, you hear a scream. You freeze as sounds of slashing and gunshot pierce the silent air. The sound dissapeares as you walk through the door. You are now in a storage room. Cupboards and shelves have been thrown to the ground. A pale yellow light flickers accatioally. A fellow Marine is lying dead on the ground. Covered in blood, slashed to bits. Suddenly there is a crash. You look up ahead. A door has been brutally smashed open, and by the looks of it, it was done by something...big. You don't like the look of that fast-approaching dot on your radar...Read more ›
