The intense action in Aliens vs. Predator 2 takes place on planet LV1201, where a group of scientists set up a base and capture several Aliens to study. When the vicious creatures escape, the scientists call for help from the Colonial Marines. Meanwhile, several Predators arrive to stake a claim on the Aliens, who are their favorite prey. The three groups soon become embroiled in an enormous inter-species conflict fought in the gloomy shadows of the darkened base.Aliens vs Predator 2 is available for order from the MacPlay web site and the IMG Store. The IMG Store is offering it for $44.99 for non-subscribers. If you are a MacGames CD or IMG Pro subscriber, you can order it for the amazing price of just $39.
