Summary

Heck freezes over, and a game for the Jaguar is worthy playing

The Good

Aliens vs. Predator (1994) is probably one of the few Atari Jaguar games actually worth playing. The graphics and sound demonstrate the hardware potential of the 64-bit (wink, wink) kitty and the game is actually fun to play. Fans of the films, will love the idea of being a Alien, Predator or a human marine.

The Bad

Some of the limits imposed on the characters seemed a bit silly. For example, the Alien is unable to use elevators and the human is unable to store medical kits for later use.

The Bottom Line

In the 1990's the Atari Jaguar, like the 3D0, both attempted to break into the video game industry that was in a tight tug-a-war between Nintendo and Sega. Both home console systems failed for many reasons, but mostly because the games were not terribly good games. Alien Vs Predator was a rare exception for the Atari Jaguar. It is fun to play, demonstrates the hardware potential of the system and even offers up some action packed survival horror.
