When playing as the Marine in Aliens Vs Predator, the gameplay is similar to that of survival horror where you negotiate dark corridors and abandoned buildings, pulse rifle in hand, flares and motion sensor at the ready, which allows you to track enemy movement. Taking on the role of the Predator you're kitted out with some of the game's best weapons including the extraterrestrial's classic wrist blades, mines, a plasma launcher and multiple vision modes that allow you to see body heat emanating from humans and Aliens alike.
You are also equipped with a cloaking device which is ideal for sneaking up on unsuspecting enemies to perform stealth kills. Another slick ability is being able to record voices that can be used as distraction devices, perfect for luring Colonial Marines in for an easy kill. While the Alien doesn't have weapons or gadgets, it is still a formidable foe because of its speed and agility. Playing as the Alien, you can smash lights to create shadows to hide in and wait for anyone foolish enough to stray from the confines of their group.
Like the Predator, stealth kills play a major role in how you defeat enemies as an Alien. With three very different styles of play on offer, Aliens Vs Predator features a huge amount of variation that unfolds like three games in one, perfect for gamers looking for a new challenge at every corner in one single place.
