Decided to redownload AvP 2010 after playing through A:CM

#1Phange 2Posted 2/17/2013 5:59:32 PM
It's been over two years since I deleted and forgot about this game. But seriously? It's actually pretty good... Considerably better than A:CM, that's for sure. And it looks and runs a lot better, too. Especially in DX11 mode. Guess I wrote it off too quickly back then.

Only real problem I had with 2010 was it had criminally short campaigns with tacked on multi-player as some sort of pseudo replacement for value. What little of the campaigns they included seemed OK if memory serves until they abruptly ended.

I guess that's the problem with trying to make three separate campaigns in one game.

Play AvP2000 and AvP2

Those are the two best Aliens games.

Nah, the devs were just lazy

AvP2 had three seperate campaigns in one game and did it perfectly. All there storylines connected to one another.

You can even see your other characters in the background at certain parts of the game.

Actually, since Wedge Antilles > Carriers, and Carriers = Instant win, then it should be Wedge Antilles > Instant win. He's just that good XD -PsionicDude

True, it was decent. Looks pretty good in DX11 mode, but campaigns were short and simple (especially the level design). Actually, I had it for PC from launch but never got into the single player until last year. I finished Marine SP in the fall and started Predator SP the other day.

Predator SP makes me lol because it's literally "you'll be an ultimate badass if you can kill xenomorphs with your bare hands"

That's the actual story.

AvP and AvP 2 are obviously stellar games....which noobs like gearbaux will never be able to produce....they're a second rate hack developer anyway.

Now AvP2010 in no way is a bad game and it's way superior to ACM in every way. I think for AvP 2010 they spent too much time on the tech....hence it looks/sounds/animates really good....you can still sell it now in 2013....and DX11 stands out really good. But the SP felt like short youtube episodes.

I really hope rebellion comes back fro another AvP game.

AVP2 is a freakin fantastic game

Kind of a pain to get AVP2 to work on Windows 7, though. Once you get past that it's pretty solid. I miss the days with 8+ people on a LAN.

I imagine that it would be a bit hard to get AVP2000 to work on Windows 7, it is over 12 years old after all.

Literally expecting people to go through the hassle of a making the proper adjustments to play a game with gameplay that more than likely has not aged very well is a bit of a stretch man.

That said, I literally have not so much as seen a screenshot of the game, and I'd love to be wrong.
