One of the first reviews for Aliens vs Predator has now been leaked online and comes from Game Informer. They seemed to only enjoy the Predator campaign, but ended up complaining about it having linear game design. I guess this is now a negative thing? Most stealth games feature linear game design. I also thought Call of Duty games were linear, but that didn’t stop it from getting awards.
“Curiously, Rebellion’s 1999 PC release, Aliens vs. Predator was well received, but the update captures none of that game’s unique spark. Instead we have a title trying to live off the fumes of two dormant franchises.”
I have to say, I think the review is a bit rough and doesn’t go into great detail about the games multiplayer aspects. I assume it was a rush review and was just put up as soon as possible. I quite enjoyed the demo, for what it was. If you have not played that, I suggest you give it a spin.Ad:
