"...When Fox Interactive and Rebellion unleashed Aliens vs.
Predator on the gaming world in 1999, they managed to successfully enrapture
and terrify us with a glimpse into an interstellar conflict that had only been
raging in the confines of the comic book world. Since the late 1980s, Dark
Horse Comics has enthralled fans of both the "Alien" and "Predator" film
franchises with tales of Alien infestation, the Predators that hunt them, and
the unfortunate humans that find themselves trapped between the two sides.
Similarly, the original title, a very successful port from the ill-fated Atari
Jaguar, instilled a palpable sense of dread as players ran, crawled, and leapt
through level after level of ferocious enemies. Fox was so convinced of the
shock value experienced by watching these characters battle it out they offered
a pair of free underwear to people who purchased it. Two years later, Sierra
has teamed up with Fox Interactive and Monolith to scare devotees even more
with the much-anticipated sequel, Aliens vs. Predator 2."
"...Monolith goes a little farther with its development of
the plot. Each species has seven missions available that are layered with
multiple levels. The selection of a specific character presents the plot in a
racially specific way; however, the title manages to interweave side plots of
the other characters to deepen the playing experience..."
"Aliens vs. Predator 2 is a solid fore into this popular
universe by Monolith. Stocked with phenomenal sound and music, lots of eye
candy, and a stable multiplayer feature, AVP2 improves upon the science fiction
horror formula established by its predecessor..."
