Developed at Rebellion by the team responsible for the original 1999 classic, in the all-new Aliens vs. Predator players have the chance to take the role of the three infamous species; the Colonial Marine, the Predator and the Alien.
Each of the three species has its very own distinct story-driven single-player campaign mode that interweaves with the campaigns of the other two species. Aliens vs. Predator will also feature unique 3-way online multiplayer, allowing gamers to pit the three species against each other in the ultimate battle for survival and for the right to be crowned the deadliest species.
On planet BG-386 a colonist mining group discovers an ancient pyramid containing a dark and horrible secret. Across the stars a race of warriors is alerted to the discovery of their pyramid and a hunting party is dispatched to ensure that it remains sealed at all costs, whilst deep inside the ruined pyramid a malevolent intelligence awakes from centuries of dormancy.
The Marine’s story is an incredible fight against the odds, and the horrors lurking in the dark. Beset on all sides yet armed to the teeth, the Colonial Marine represents humanity’s last stand with the firepower to fight back.
As the Alien, players will discover what it’s like to be the most murderous and lethal creature in the universe, with the ability to traverse any surface with awesome agility in order to get close enough to unleash its deadly teeth and claws.
A master of the hunt, the Predator grants the player a suite of exotic weaponry and equipment with which to stalk its unknowing prey. Earn the greatest honour by ambushing prey up-close and butchering them for a gory trophy kill.

The marine campaign, for me, is the superior campaign as it is dark and atmospheric with plenty of sparsely lit corridors and flickering lights, and ofcourse plenty of xenomorph smashing action. The motion tracker adds a great level of apprehension, especially when there's a predator on the prowl and you can't see it but dammit something's moving out there and it aint us! Then there's the famous pulse rifles and smart gun with all their fabulous sounds. A special comment must be made on these sound effects as they are superb and really bring you deeper into the universe. My only problem with the marine campaign is it's simply too short.
The alien and predator campaigns are good too, especially the predator where you feel like a universal hunting machine with your cloaking, jumping, stalking and eventual decapitating and eviscerating of man and alien alike (in full gory violent detail).
I could go on about this game but like I said at the beginning it's not going to appeal to everyone, but the fans of the films are boumd to enjoy it and I suspect, like me, fans will probably go and buy it anyway.
My final issue is the lack of deathmatches and other multiplayer games in single or solo mode, this would have been a nice touch for those who either don't have good enough internet connection, don't have the internet for the xbox or simply don't want to waste their time playing against kids online.
A final note on the much maligned graphics, I must say I don't see what "everyone" is going on about, personallly I thought they were fine; suitably dark and grimey; not gears of war beauty but still good enough for this generation, especially when you get up close and personal as a predator or alien and look in to the eyes of the poor marine who you're about to violently slaughter.
Overall I'm still unsure if I love this game or if it's just that I love the aliens and predator films so I'm a little bias toward a good but certainly not brilliant game, but I gave it a 4 either way as it is simply a fun game.
Anyway, I'd best be going now as it'll be dark soon and they mostly come out at night...mostly.
The Predator missions are where the game really starts to lose it's edge. The Predator feels very wooden and not quite as deadly as one migth have thought: humans are able to block a swipe from his claws, the disk is almost uncontrollable and the shoulder canon runs out of energy far too quickly.
I personally found the Alien element almost unplayable as I seemed to spend most of my time trying to deduce whether I was on the floor or the ceiling. The fighting also seemed a bit ridiculous as humans took four or more blows before they were killed. As of writing, I have not bothered to finish this element of the game and this should highlight how good it is.
The survival mode is laughably poor and feels as though it were hastely added as an after-thought. It falls way short of comparable elements from Left 4 Dead and CoD World at War.
All in all, I have rather berrated this game, mostly because it is not the brilliant game it could have been. It's not bad, it's just not that good either.
