Aliens Vs. Predator licensees

Group Description

Games that take a cue from the Alien skull in the Predator's trophy case in the 1990 movie Predator 2 and feature crossovers between the two famous movie series Alien(s) and Predator. See Alien(s) and Predator Series for games featuring only one of the two.

Although there is a movie series of the same name (beginning in 2004) most of the games in this game group are based on the Dark Horse comic book series. The first two games, Alien Vs. Predator and Alien vs Predator: The Last of His Clan, are side-scrolling action games where the player takes the role of the predator. Better known are the first person shooters Alien Vs Predator for Jaguar and the two Aliens Versus Predator and Aliens Versus Predator 2 for computer systems, all featuring three campaigns for marine, predator and alien. Both games were later enhanced; the first one with an enhanced re-release and the second one with an add-on. The Gold Edition combines main game and add-on.

The console game Aliens Versus Predator: Extinction however goes into another direction and is a real-time strategy game. The third-person shooter based on the second movie picture Aliens Vs Predator: Requiem has, like the first games in the series, just one campaign where the player controls the Predator.

There is also an Alien vs. Predator arcade game, made by Capcom in 1994, which was intended to be a tie-in for a didn't-happen movie release adaptation of the comic book.
