I dont have the game but have looked it up on reviews but im still not sure of spending 20 bucks on it (since im poor). Ive looked at it and i think you can be a marine predator or an alien now can someone give me their point of view on if the game avp2 is worth buying or not? Cause im a real big fan of the alien movies and predator movies. Also is one side better than the other cause i dont want to keep constantly losing on one race?

I think AVP 2 Is a great game. Here's why: FOR MARINES 1. A great storyline, and if you're not used to having a storyline(like me), it makes the game more intresting. Although the storyline suffers in the expansion. 2. Very slow-paced gamplay at times. You are usually going down a dark hallway with your little light on in extreme caution. When you are attacked, though, the gameplay boostes up a notch and delivers VERY fast-paced action. 3. You can interact with your invoirment in a good amount of ways. You can obviously pull levers and push buttons, but you can also read notes and look at computer screen. It even goes so far as adding secuirity cameras that you can watch. Doing one of these usually has a role or creates some sort of reaction, most of the time just opening doors, though. 4. The weapons are really fun. I don't want to go into naming all of them, but you do get to use a lot of every weapon. FOR PREDATORS 1. The storyline for the Predator starts out with you hunting. Something I didn't expect. Just the fact that your first objective is "Hunt the Human Prey" is awsome. This all leads into a very nice story line but again, the expansions storyline sucks. 2. The gameplay is what you'd expect from hunting. It is very fun and you can be very sneaky with your cloaking divice. My only problem with that is if you get too close, they can see you. You are usually in nice "non-destroyed" enviorments. With the lights on and more humans than aliens. You are occansionally in the dark, but not too often. 3. You can interact with your invoirment every way a human can, which is cool. 4. The weapons for the Predator are VERY fun and it you've seen any Predator movie you'll know some of the weapons. You also get free health and energy whenever you want, as long as no one is shooting at you. FOR ALIEN 1. The storyline is nothing big, but it's very satisfying that you started the whole alien attack. And turning from a facehugger into a drone is the ultimate.:nodding: 2. The gamplay is incredable, crawling on walls, suprising your enemy, it's all so fun. Tearing people apart for health is also a nice touch. You can even stun you enemys with your tail. 3. Not too much to interact with here. Just being albe to crawl on walls is good enough. 4. Claws, tail, teeth. They are all perfect for dismembering people and they are fun. FOR MULTIPLAYER Haven't played it yet. Sounds very entertaining, though. BOTTOM LINE For twenty bucks, it's one helluva deal!

It's kinda hard to tell when you're being sarcastic and serious in your post there, seeing how you blend them both together.

It is more than worth 20 bucks.Mp is fun, except for the occasional whining and complaining about using some abilities (ie. tracking weapons, cloaking, sitting still so as not to be picked up on motion sensors, blah blah blah)SP is very fun, especially the first few times around.There are many levels throughout for each race that i could never get enough of.The storyline is interesting, and each species has some very unique weapons/abilities.If you like shooters, and either movie series, you will more than likely not regret purchasing the game.Even for its age the graphics and gameplay are great.

it is well worth the 10 bucks i paid for it...multiplayer is good, except when people whine and cry about using certain abilities :rolleyes:.Single player is awesome the first time through, and is still pretty fun each time i play it.It is well worth the money in my opinion

I asked myself the same question until i downloaded the demo (which took all day), after i played it i decided to buy all of the predator and alien movies, thats how much i liked it. And when i bought it (the game i mean), i seriously couldnt stop playing. What im saying is: HELL YEAH!!!
