IMG Reviews Aliens vs Predator
11:58 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

After a long and many-staged journey, a game that first saw light on the venerable Atari Jaguar has finally made its way to the Mac. Aliens vs Predator: Gold Edition was recently released by MacPlay, and now IMG has published a review of this unique first-person shooter:

The atmosphere in this game is superb. The sound of a marine pulse rifle, the Alien screams, the Predator's rattle... these mix effortlessly with the spraying acidic blood and the infrared vision modes.

You want to know what it is like for an Alien to hang from the ceiling in a dark shadow, only to spot a human meal glowing bright blue in the darkness? Then play this game.

Curious what it feels like to be a technological warrior chasing after easy prey? What it's like to cloak your body as your heat vision pinpoints all your targets in a room? Play this game.

Wondering what it is to be a person as you are ripped apart limb from limb by a drooling, over-toothed space cockroach while your ineffective bullets tear holes in its carcass, only to allow it to drip its acidic blood directly onto your burning shins? Play this game.

For the rest of Michael Yanovich's review, and to play the game for yourself, follow the links below.
