Ok guys, it's finally time.
NEW MOD REVIEW TIME!
ok, so first mod here in ages... Bloodytearspack by acidglow.
says here he has new skins, new sounds and a new HUD. sounds great!
Sounds: The sounds were crisp and clear. ripped from several platforms such as Films and Games. Included are, AvP Gold AvP2: Primal Hunt Alien Aliens Alien: Resurrection Predator 1 Predator2 and afew sounds from the movie blade.
This pack alters the main menu music to a high temp dance mix.. only it starts in the middle of the song and just continues to play repeatidly. I'm sorry I just don't think this song belongs here.
The multiplayer menu and sub-menus get a nice gothic song with a woman vocalizing. I don't think this song belongs eithe,r thow it's nice and the same genre, it dosen't seem to get me in the mood to kill things or be on my gaurd.. it just makes me feel awkward. I have issues with songs that strike me as soothing when i'm about to go into a battle.
I like the hover sound(The sound when you highlight an option)
Both are very nice songs and I wish I had the names for them. but I just don't think they belong in-game.
Predators get the best sounds from this pack. you'll hear many roars from the various predator films all.. beautifully blended into the game.
Humans get afew movie based taunts and screams but none that really stand out. Except the FLY! Did I mention there's a fly? yeah he's a static object apparently he hangs around humans mostly in the Vengance map for bugs thow. They even brush him away at times. I spent hours stalking people and rolling on the floor laughing when a fly buzzes by them and they wave it off.
Aliens recieve some nice SFX too... but it's hard to hear any differance from the old ones at times.
Weapons, the SoundFX for pred weapons is very nicely done. they sound like real blades, and the projectiles are finely added to the silhouette of horror.
H-Weapons, Human weapons however, do not fit in that well.. They sound very high-tech and futuristic but for some reason I don't think a pulse rifle should sound like a Laser gun.
Skins: Predators The predator skins are from a skin pack called the "Shadow Predator" also made by Acid_Glow These skins darken the normal predator skin and armor, they also add a nifty red or green glow to the eye shiedlings on the masks. A really sweet HUD, nicely done.
Humans, some nice HUD changes but the motion tracker changed to black with red blips which is hard to see and frustraiting at times.
Aliens, The bugs sport a new HUD layout. I don't care much for the health bar for an adult but the facehuggers is pretty cool.
Weapons: The weapons are for all species /VERY/ nicely skinned and textured. They look great in game! but their fire graphic(little flame from the barrel when shooting) is sort of cartoonish. Look at the screenshot to see what I mean.
I'm not sure what the Marine aimer was and the only cloaking change to the predator that I noticed was if you stood still you were completely clear except for your eyes. And the bright blood was a nice touch even thow certain times it seemed out of place.
All in all I give this mod a 9 out of 10.. with a replay value of 8. I think you should try going through AVP singleplayer with this pack. it should give you a differant experiance worth trying.
