Rebellion’s Aliens vs Predator hasn’t been receiving all out praise in it’s early reviews with some sites giving it absolutely abysmal scoresâ€¦ case in point 1UP who gave it a woeful D which pretty much means avoid at all costs.
However on the flip side the Official PS magazine gave it 9/10 and IGN UK gave it a respectful 85/100â€¦ however those really are the only two good scores from the major websites.
The full IGN website gave it 70/100 as did Videogamer and Gamespot gave it a 55/100â€¦
Even so Rebellion CEO, Jason Kingsley, has said he is delighted to see it scale the heights of the UK charts and if you ignore the negative reviews the game is actually scoring pretty wellâ€¦ And if you ignore all my failed attempts to bed Megan Fox I still have a shot.
It may be a commercial success but I feel calling it a critical success is wrong, especially with a Metacritic score of 67 at the moment.. that isn’t successful.

Im just wondering if its getting bad scores because off all the other games that was released at the same time or is it actually just a bad game in general?
Enjoyed the first ones so kinda disappointed here

Well seen the US version, and i really digged the marine campain. I was a AvP2 fan and i think this is better.

Don’t like it.
I was waiting so long for this as the first 2 were super awesome.
The biggest flaw is the lack of a proper single player.
The alien camp you can do in less than 2hrs the human will take about 3 and the pred will annoy the crap out of you, with shitty controls which adds to the lenth of 3~ish hrs.
The is ONLY online multiplayer which was a big 🙁 as I really wanted to system link (LAN) this.
