On top of all the single-player levels, multiplayer action lets you hone your favorite character online or on a network. While the graphics are dated, the dark mood and triple-variety of Aliens vs. Predator Gold make the game worthwhile.
Aliens vs. Predator Gold Edition has been worth the wait. Any time you get a game that's an adaptation of another source, it's usually a rush job, a pastiche of the most popular elements with little of the original's flavor. AvP Gold, however, successfully captures the feel of not one, but two film franchises, and blends them together without sacrificing from either one.
Well the good news is that overall the game is amazing. The bad news is that a few extremely minor tweaks would have made it even better, especially in the multiplayer arena. Granted, none of these problems are related to the Mac port – they are all relics of the PC version. But since we did have to wait several Christmas shopping seasons longer than everyone else had to, you would expect these issues to be addressed. Right?
For the fan tired of the all-too-familiar formula pervading the first-person shooter genre, it's a challenging and invigorating change of pace. Novices or thrill seekers looking to experience the worlds of some of the most famous creatures of cinematic sci-fi history need look no further -- just don't expect victory to come easily.
Overall, this game gets a big thumbs up even though it is three years old. I played this game with Mac OS9 and 8.6 with no bugs appearing except for the ones I was shooting at. I can't speak for OSX performance. I'm sorry. I hope to get up to speed with OSX in the near future. AvP's weak point is a substandard multiplayer interface. The graphics while not state-of-the-art are just fine. the price is reasonable. And the relatively low system requirements will allow most Mac Gamers to play it.
Mise à part le côté graphique qui tend à se faire vieilot, le jeu tient la route. Une atmosphere qui vous tient en haleine, des sons magnifiques et le choix des races et leurs différences rendent le tout assez prennant.
