"Aliens vs. Predator (AvP) bore the weight of heavy expectations, despite following two very poor attempts at AvP movies. News of the upcoming movie, Predators, had anticipation building, and then AvP had been banned in Australia for being far too violent. Ever the morbid kind, gamers everywhere took this as good news. If the game was violent enough to get banned, developer Rebellion must have pulled out all the stops to make up for the travesties of the teen-friendly movies."
"Aliens vs Predator finally makes its inevitable jump to the current-gen consoles and we couldn’t be more happy. Developer Rebellion have their work cut out for them to please fans of the franchise and previous games, but can this legendary battle between these three species live up to the AvP legacy?"
"The two extraterrestrials from the Aliens and Predator franchise are fairly familiar with each other having been in several games and movies together, most notable however is the FPS Aliens vs. Predator from about ten years ago. Now the two aliens alongside the space marines are locked in another war that looks to please fans and new comers."
The multiplayer mode of Aliens Vs. Predator seems to be a big attraction. Pitting three species up against one another is always exciting. However, a useful technique that players using the Colonial Marines rarely use is blocking. The video guides viewers through the technique so that they can hopefully incorporate it into their gameplay.
"Recently I got a chance to check out some of the multiplayer in the upcoming Alien vs. Predator title during a community event held at Astro Studios in San Francisco. The game’s set to release on February 16th for the Xbox 360, PC and PS3 and was developed by Rebellion, the same company responsible for thee classics released in the 90s. The Alien universe, as well as Predator’s has a very hardcore fan base, something that I do not share the passion for. Even though I am not a diehard fan of e..."

"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."
"Part monster, part warrior, all cool, the Predator has become an iconic character in modern cinema, a recognizable force to be reckoned with to even those who have never seen a Predator film. An alien with the moves and the tools that would make any self-respecting space soldier jealous, the Predator has been entertaining audiences with his exploits since his titular 1987 film which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger (as his opponent, of course).
The Predator has certainly outgrown his second-b..."
