IGN UK (Feb 11, 2010)
The three species set-up feels generous even at a time when people demand so much of their games, but it's a premise that dates back to Rebellion's first Aliens vs. Predator in 1994. While much has changed it still feels a little rusty – this isn't as slick as a Modern Warfare or Halo and its production values feel like they're from a different age, with poor textures and the occasional unimaginative set-piece belying the fact that underneath the HD dazzle is a core idea that's changed little in over 15 years. But that never truly detracts from how much fun is to be had throughout Aliens vs. Predator's myriad modes as Rebellion leans heavily on the source material, creating a game that's going to stoke the hearts of anyone who ever fell in love with the original films – which is likely anyone who's ever picked up a game pad.
Impulse Gamer (2010)
In conclusion, Aliens vs. Predator may not offer anything new in terms of gameplay and features a relatively short campaign mode, however it’s actually good old fashioned fun and if you’re a fan of either of these two franchises, than you’ll definitely be alien heaven. Even though I'm not a huge fan of online play, the developers have hit the nail on the head with this game and I'll definitely be going online for more.

Vorab machte „Aliens vs. Predator“ einen vielversprechenden Eindruck, der durch kleine Unstimmigkeiten, wie die fehlenden Untertitel bei den Tagebucheinträgen, ein wenig in Mitleidenschaft gezogen wurde. Die Rolle des Space Marine ist ein wenig zu standardmäßig geraten, aber als Alien oder Predator auf die Jagd zu gehen, macht gehörig Spaß. Das Spiel ist allerdings definitiv nichts für schwache Nerven, schon alleine wegen den brutalen Tötungsmanövern.
Vandal Online (Feb 16, 2010)
Aliens vs. Predator tiene algunos fallos en su diseño en toda su propuesta para un jugador. Por un lado, propone tres campañas bien diferenciadas, pero sus diferentes sistemas de control no acaban de responder tan bien como sería deseable, y eso implica pasar por unas curvas de aprendizaje poco justificables. Se podría haber hecho una mejor reflexión sobre el control en todas sus vertientes para mejorar el producto sustancialmente. Asimismo, hereda los diseños de niveles del original, y ahí es donde se nota que las cosas han cambiado mucho en estos años. Pero su ambientación, concepto, y propuesta son de gran calidad, lo que resulta en un producto con contrastes que falla en las pequeñas cosas; pero a veces, esas pequeñas cosas son muy importantes.
Thunderbolt Games (Feb 23, 2010)
Overall, though, Aliens vs. Predator is a dream game for fans of the source material and, despite lacking a slick coat of whiz-bang graphical polish, ranks as one of the most unique and absorbing first-person titles for the PS3. Each of three, well-crafted single player campaigns offers a distinct gameplay experience, and the online portion of the game (barring the aggravating matchmaking system) is fully-featured, extremely balanced, and a whole lot of fun. Whether you’re leaping from rooftop to rooftop, stalking a platoon of marines as the predator, or scampering through a ventilation shaft on the way to propagating your species as the alien, Rebellion’s sci-fi, survival-horror/action title is an unequivocal gem of a FPS, and a worthy addition to nearly anyone’s budding game library.

In the end, Aliens vs. Predator is a solid game with its fair share of problems. For fans of the franchise, you’ll be able to look over the blemishes and find a game that you’ll be playing for months. For those that aren’t into the Aliens vs. Predator franchise, well, what the hell is wrong with you? Good or bad, I think we can all agree on one thing: This is the greatest game ever made where you can pull a guy’s spine out while he screams for mercy.
3D Juegos (Feb 16, 2010)
La saga Aliens vs Predator goza de buena salud si nos guiamos por el último videojuego de Rebellion. A pesar de los años transcurridos desde la última entrega, la fórmula se continúa mostrando fresca e ingeniosa, y con tres campañas individuales y un multijugador de altura su compra es más que justificable desde el punto de vista de la vida útil del juego. Todavía le falta un plus de calidad para alcanzar sus impactantes dos videojuegos precedentes, sin embargo sigue siendo un fantástico título de acción.
Gamervision (Feb 16, 2010)
While there is a lot to like in Aliens vs. Predators, it's far from a great game. There's usually something to complain about at every turn, and every great element is flawed in some small way. Despite these faults, mistakes, and missteps, it's still an utterly enjoyable and unique experience, making the game more than the sum of its parts. Like the Xenomprohs, the problems are there at all times, ready to leap out from the shadows and strike. However, unlike the Xenomorphs, they don't get in the way, and while that alone doesn't forgive the problems, it definitely makes them less detrimental.
Meristation (Feb 16, 2010)
Además, no se queda en un mero título de acción, y aporta dosis significativas de terror. Sin embargo, los gráficos habrían podido lucir algo mejor, y el multijugador, aunque alarga la vida del juego, es intenso y cuenta con buen número de modos, carece de profundidad y se limita a servir un festín de casquería en variantes distintas sin demasiado sentido. Es notable el esfuerzo por equilibrar las habilidades de las tres especies, que han sido perfectamente adaptadas e interpretadas, y sigue siendo interesante controlar a cualquiera de ellas o completar el modo campaña en sus tres vertientes, por bien que controlar al xenomorfo, no obstante, aunque es especialmente divertido en espacios estrechos, se convierte en los grandes escenarios en una tarea difícil y el contínuo cambio entre planos puede ser mareante y desorientador.
Game Watcher (Feb 22, 2010)
You won't be buying AvP for its single-player though, and if you are you may find yourself sorely disappointed. Rebellion has built AvP around its multiplayer, which is both well-constructed and surprisingly well-balanced. Each species comes with its own unique advantages and shortcomings, and will take some time to master, but once you do, AvP rewards in spades. Fans of the movies will certainly find more to love in AvP than those without a knowledge of its celluloid counterparts, who might find the whole thing a little less palatable in comparison to the many superior FPSes currently available.
Spazio Games (Feb 15, 2010)
La valutazione è inoltre inevitabilmente influenzata dal comparto estetico, davvero deludente nelle versioni console, pallide imitazioni di quella PC, comunque di certo non al top della categoria, ma per lo meno soddisfacente. Molto buono il multiplayer, in grado di assicurare agli utenti tante ore di divertimento selvaggio grazie alla forte differenziazione tra le tre razze: divertenti da usare e allo stesso tempo ben bilanciate. In definitiva, ci sentiamo di consigliare il titolo a tutti gli amanti delle saghe cinematografiche, a patto che non cerchino un’esperienza particolarmente innovativa. Peccato solo che la produzione sia così distante dalla qualità degli albori, in quanto una maggiore cura nello sviluppo avrebbe potuto attirare un’utenza decisamente più vasta.
PSX Extreme (Feb 22, 2010)
Aliens vs. Predator is a decent game plagued by a horde of “what ifs.” There are so many places that just scream out for more attention; I couldn’t play for more than 15 minutes without going, “oh come on; that could’ve been awesome!” There’s just always something that reared its ugly head and it’s absolutely unavoidable. I suppose it’s a credit to the designers and the solid atmosphere that we can still somehow manage to have fun regardless of the flaws, but that doesn’t a worthwhile $60 game make.
Digital Chumps (Feb 23, 2010)
It's good to see the franchise back and I like that Rebellion is at the helm. Overall, the multiplayer takes center stage here and what's left is a mediocre campaign at best. My recommendation is a weekend rental -- get through the campaign in a sitting or two and then spend several hours with multiplayer to see if this one is worth your gaming dollar.
Eurogamer.es (Feb 23, 2010)
Aliens vs Predator lo tenía todo de cara para convertirse en uno de los grandes títulos para este comienzo de 2010, pero al final se ha quedado en un quiero y no puedo. No es un mal juego, ojo, pero quizás le haya faltado algo más de tiempo de desarrollo o simplemente un poco más de ambición por parte de sus creadores. Dejando de lado una soberbia ambientación, la variedad que otorgan las tres razas, un buen multijugador y el indiscutible carisma de la franquicia, es un FPS más anclado en mecánicas jugables del pasado. Una compra muy recomendable tanto para los fans de los Aliens como de los Depredadores, pero para el resto de jugadores merece la pena un alquiler antes de decidir si pasar por caja.
Gamestyle (Feb 24, 2010)
The control gripes aside, Aliens vs Predator is a good game, but it will certainly appeal more to fans of the two franchises. It shouldn't be compared to other First Person Shooters, because this is only a part of the game, and the different combat styles of the three species make it both challenging and entertaining. The single-player campaign may not offer much in the way of replay value, but the decent multiplayer modes go some way to rectify this, and Gamestyle defies any fan of the films not to enjoy their time spent mutilating Marines or hunting bugs.
XGN (Feb 27, 2010)
Aliens vs. Predator is een waardige titel binnen de franchise. De sfeer wordt goed neergezet en het spelen als Alien, Predator of Marine is leuk. Alleen is dit niet genoeg om de game boven de concurrentie uit te laten stijgen.
Eurogamer.it (Feb 15, 2010)
Tirando le somme, Aliens Vs Predator si dimostra dunque un buon titolo, capace di ricreare in maniera più che soddisfacente l’angosciante atmosfera dei suoi due brand di riferimento. Le tre campagne proposte, pur non spiccando per longevità, riescono infatti a garantire una buon coinvolgimento, e il multiplayer, vero fiore all’occhiello del prodotto, vi terrà senz’altro incollati allo schermo per molto, moltissimo tempo grazie alle sue ottime modalità di gioco. Insomma, non ci troviamo di fronte ad una pietra miliare nel campo degli FPS, ma al di là di qualche piccolo difetto, una veste grafica migliorabile e un’IA non sempre brillantissima, il lavoro svolto da Rebellion è senz’altro meritevole di attenzione.
IGN (Feb 16, 2010)
Aliens vs. Predator could have been a truly great game. It’s there, you can almost feel it, but it’s constantly ripped away from you because of some poor design decisions and a general lack of quality that keeps the game from having that triple-A feeling. It’s by no means a bad game and will almost certainly please fans more so than either movie effort, but when compared to other first-person shooter titles on the market, the difference is clear.
videogamer.com (Feb 18, 2010)
Aliens Vs Predator is a great deal of fun, but there's no getting away from the fact that it feels somewhat dated and that the marine campaign is head and shoulders above the other two. A more fleshed out marine campaign and more maps for the survival multiplayer game type would have made for an altogether better experience, but what Rebellion has delivered is still worth taking a look at. This isn't the perfect Aliens or Predator video game, but it does a lot right.
As an overall package, you are getting a lot when it comes to AvP. With three campaigns, a co-op mode, and five other multiplayer modes, there is lot for you to see and do. However, the problem is that every aspect has its flaws. There are times where you are going to just want to put the controller down and say: "I can find a better game somewhere else". However if you stick with it, you will find something to like underneith it all, and will definetly have some fun with Aliens Versus Predator.
Game Over Online (Mar 29, 2010)
What might sound like a rather harsh review is actually just my way of saying this game could've been better. AvP has some great moments, good action, and some very neat ideas, but they're all held back by a ton of balancing issues and dull gameplay. The sound effects are fantastic and will definitely leave you in the mood to watch either the Aliens or Predator films (though I suggest skipping the AvP films). Despite the much talked about three unique campaigns, this is a game that puts its multiplayer in the spotlight, but there's very little innovation and even less of a reason to choose this game over the myriad of better online experiences out there.
Middle East Gamers (MEgamers) (Mar 26, 2010)
All in all, though this may be a fleeting return to AvP’s better days, it doesn’t really do much to revive the now stale series. Pitting the gruesome Aliens against the brutal Predators may have once been on par with dream match-ups like “Batman vs Superman” or “Tyson vs Muhammad Ali” but is now more along the lines of “Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games”. Still the game is not bad and worthy of a try but just don’t expect to be blown away and frankly I wouldn’t mind if this is the last we hear of either species. Perhaps it’s best to let bygones be bygones.
GamingExcellence (Mar 24, 2010)
Alien vs. Predator is not the greatest of games, but it is not all bad. On one hand, playing as both the Alien and Predator are rather enjoyable at times. You really feel like you are immersed in the species’ universe and their traits and mannerisms are greatly featured. However, it still carries the same question that I had when I saw the movie: “Why are humans even involved?” The FPS mechanics of the game make it feel like little time was put into them and there are much better games out there that are devoted solely to that. Also with the poor visuals and a multiplayer system that isn’t all that interesting, you’ll probably put the game down once you finish all the campaign stories.
AceGamez (Mar 01, 2010)
Rather appropriately, your natural instincts will almost certainly tell you whether Aliens vs. Predator is the right purchase for you. If you’re a huge fan of anything AvP then it’s sure to be a definite “Yes”, as the game pays the kind of homage to the franchise you might expect it would. If, on the other hand, you’re a devotee of one or more of its’ many components – Aliens, Predators, sci-fi or first-person-shooters – then you’ll need to give the decision much more serious consideration. There certainly are things to enjoy about AvP, but its lack of imagination beyond its solid recreation of the Ali vs. Tyson of sci-fi fantasy fights means that it’s a title that’s more generically enhanced than genetically advanced; and because of this it will probably remain a tantalizing blip on many people’s radars that they don’t investigate further.
Hellbored (Mar 01, 2010)
I begged Aliens vs. Predator to be better but it wouldn’t happen. It had an opportunity to be an outstanding title but so many flaws with the characters and gameplay are present that even an ardent fan of both species. like I am, can’t ignore. The whole thing felt underpowered and half-hearted. Mediocre graphics, dreadful combat and an insane waste of assets and ideas leads me to believe that Rebellion must have thought that the species-popularity alone would carry the game. Devotees of both Aliens and Predators may want to check out the multiplayer but save yourself the letdown and don’t get too excited about anything else.
PlayLipse.fr (Mar 29, 2010)
Le soft se compose de trois campagnes différentes mais interconnectées et chaque espèce offre son propre gameplay. Toutefois, chacun d’eux est limité, sans compter que le titre est linéaire, dirigiste et rigide. S’il est loin d’être mauvais, il souffre surtout d’un sérieux retard sur les productions actuelles, que ce soit au niveau graphique ou au niveau du système de jeu. Reste que les campagnes, malgré celle de l’alien plus décevante que les autres, permettent de passer quelques heures appréciables si on est fan des licences, et il en va de même pour le multi fort sympathique une fois passé outre les défauts déjà cités. Mais les fines bouches ne l’entendront pas de cette oreille et pourront critiquer allègrement bien des points, au risque de passer à côté d’un titre qui a beaucoup de défauts, certes, mais qui a aussi pas mal de qualités que l’on peut avoir tendance à vite oublier…
PlayFrance (Feb 19, 2010)
Malgré de bonnes idées sur chacune des trois campagnes et quelques passages dignes des films dont il est inspiré, Aliens vs Predator le jeu n'atteint pas le niveau que l'on attendait de lui. Si la possibilité de jouer trois races différentes est attirante sur le papier, le résultat manette en main est bien moins convaincant : le gameplay proposé manque de profondeur et de variété, et les contrôles sont parfois trop approximatifs. Ajoutez à cela une réalisation qui manque de panache et une durée de vie en solo relativement courte, et vous obtenez un jeu tout juste moyen qui ne fait honneur ni à sa licence, ni à nos consoles. A réserver aux inconditionnels du genre.
Cheat Code Central (2010)
There's nothing unforgettable about this game, but there's nothing worth hating really. This is a mediocre effort in every sense of the word. I almost wish Rebellion had failed more spectacularly; at least there'd be something more to talk about. As it stands, AVP is a FPS that follows most of the conventions of the genre and adds some Aliens, Marines, and Predators to the mix. No matter what your purpose in playing Rebellion's new shooter, there is almost undoubtedly a reason you should be playing a different game. It's not bad, it's just not good.
Eurogamer.pt (Feb 22, 2010)
O modo online, apesar dos seus defeitos, continua a representar o melhor que Aliens vs Predator tem para oferecer aos fãs deste franchise, poderá se tornar agradável e bastante divertido. É pena que as três campanhas sejam extremamente curtas e que nenhuma delas tenha atingido o seu verdadeiro potencial. A juntar a isto, temos ainda uma jogabilidade demasiado básica e que sofre de varias limitações. A conclusão é que Aliens vs Predator é um jogo que necessitava de aperfeiçoar certos aspectos, mas mesmo assim, não é um jogo mau de todo, mas exige um olhar atento antes de ser adquirido.
Cynamite (Mar 17, 2010)
Die drei Kampagnen sind teils arg kurz und wecken Wunschträume nach Innovationen. Zumindest der Mehrspielermodus hält länger bei der Stange.
GameZone (Feb 28, 2010)
Sega and Rebellion don’t offer much of a unique experience to attract gamers who have been up to their eyeballs in video games since the holidays.
TheSixthAxis (Feb 27, 2010)
Aliens Vs Predator tries to stay faithful to the franchise but in turn creates a mediocre FPS that is over far too quickly. The multiplayer does add some excitement but rage quitters and bad losers will spoil your games until it is fixed. Movie fans will get a little buzz from playing their favourite monsters but the whole experience is dull overall.
Gamer.nl (Feb 23, 2010)
Met Aliens vs. Predator slaagt Rebellion er niet in de glorie van het eerste deel terug te halen. Daarvoor is men veel te conservatief geweest en is teveel de blauwdruk van het eerste deel gevolgd. De frisheid is eraf, de personages hebben nog precies dezelfde mogelijkheden en de het missie-ontwerp is wel heel erg conventioneel. De multiplayer compenseert de matige singleplayer nog enigszins, maar bij lange na niet genoeg om Aliens vs. Predator aan te kunnen raden.
Jeuxvideo.com (Feb 17, 2010)
Trois races, trois gameplays, mais trois fois moins développés. Chaque campagne a ses points forts mais qui s'accompagnent d'autant de points faibles très lourds. Qu'il s'agisse d'un gameplay daté ou d'une progression bancale, les bonnes idées de Rebellion marchent systématiquement sur un râteau et se le prennent en pleine tronche. Si on traverse le solo sans réels déplaisirs, on n'est jamais franchement enthousiaste face à tant de platitude. Quant au multijoueur plein de promesses, il souffre d'une réelle mollesse et de gros problèmes d'équilibrage.
GameSpot (Feb 15, 2010)
It's the little things that really drag the game down. Aliens vs. Predator seems to be a well-meaning attempt at reinvigorating a languishing series, but grotesque kills and some entertaining multiplayer moments don't cut it--not when so many slick and exciting shooters are on store shelves, vying for your time. The attention to detail, the well-considered level design, and the sense of momentum that characterize the finest shooters are missing here. Aliens vs. Predator is sometimes enjoyable but never escapes an overwhelming sense of carelessness, so while it may remind you of the good old days, it fails to recapture them.
There's plenty of fun to be had in the multiplayer scenarios including the Horde/Firefight style Survivor mode (which was also in the 1999 original), but only through gritted teeth. It's absurd that a tie-in to a 24 year old film should be so rushed, but they should've waited till it was 25 years.
DarkZero (Mar 04, 2010)
Sadly a few entertaining multiplayer modes don’t quite save Aliens vs. Predator from mediocrity. Based on the license, and the previous videogaming pedigree, this can only be seen as a disappointment. The few sequences throughout that truly capture what is so unique about this IP are the high points, but there are too few of them and they are buried deep in an otherwise uninspired first-person shooter.
Game Revolution (Feb 19, 2010)
The last time I played a game in this series was when it came out for the Jaguar. Sadly, it seems not much has changed in the last decade and a half. For something that seems like such a no-brainer, folks do sure seem to screw this one up a lot. As it stands now, you'd probably have more fun being on To Catch a Predator than playing Aliens Vs. Predator.
GameGavel.com (Feb 12, 2011)
I didn’t like this game more, because there’s not much more here to like. In fact this game sort of sat on my Steam list forgotten for a month or two after we got it. The lackluster opening on it’s own was almost enough to make me shrug indifferently and play something else, but eventually I came back to the game, and wiped it out. And then still, another month went by before I remembered I needed to write about it. I know this is a punishing review but, I really can’t sugar coat anything that’s on display here. Everything that this game offered me was inconsistent, and forgettable.
1UP (Feb 17, 2010)
The survivor mode is like the game itself in a microcosm. It's rote and uninspired, a desultory thoughtless collage of bits and pieces surgically removed from the movies and dropped lifelessly into a dated engine. We're light years from the calculated, monster mash-up the series used to promise. If there was ever a game deserving of the last movie's title -- Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem -- it's this one.
