Aliens vs Predator 2 - Single Player Demo
The Alien and the Predator movie series have made quite the name for themselves, thanks to the stunning visual effects and the horrific implication of the events taking place over the course of the story. Naturally, a crossover between the two was made, which featured the predators stalking aliens and killing them in a gruesome manner, together with the people who dare to stand before them.
Experience the story from every point of view
Alien vs Predator 2 is the sequel to the highly-acclaimed FPS that made quite an impression among gamers, thanks to the well implemented horror elements and the classical shooter mechanics. This time around, though, you are yet again given the chance to play as either of the three protagonists and better understand their choices, by experiencing the events from their point of view.
Hence, you can choose to play as either a marine, a predator or an alien and go through their own, personal campaigns. Due to the fact that they have different combat styles and anatomies, each character prefers a certain approach when it comes to engaging the enemies. While the marine does not have too many options, other than to shoot at anything that attacks him, the alien uses its acrobatic skills to sneak around and attack its prey when it is least expecting it.
Use stealth whenever possible
The major differences between the characters means that you cannot employ the same tactics with all of them, unless you want to make it really difficult for yourself. Thus, even if the marine is able to take on his enemies head-on, the predator is far more efficient when he sneaks around cloaked, using his multiple vision modes to spot any nearby enemies and take them by surprise.
A great deal of improvements went into the technical aspect of the game as well, which can be admired in the heavily-retouched graphic engine and the nerve-breaking sound that always leaves you wondering. In addition, the mechanics have been refined too, since it is far easier to control the characters now and take advantage of their abilities.
An intense and terrifying experience
Finally, the horror elements could not be absent in this sequel either, since Alien vs Predator 2 is just as scary as the first installment was when it first came out, especially when you play as the marine. Moreover, you can also enjoy the improved multiplayer mode, where players can fight each other using any of the three possible characters.
