Aliens vs Predator 2

Aliens vs Predator 2
First person shooter fans get a second dose of fun. Play as the chest-bursting aliens, the sci-fi-friendly Predator, or the poor marines stuck in the middle.

This classic came out in 2001, so by now it's rather cheap compared to current releases. The gameplay is still great fun, though. There are three different single-player campaigns, each with storylines that weave in and out of each other. You can face-hug as an alien, stealth-attack as a Predator, or fight off the enemy as a marine.

The graphics aren't top notch by today's standards, with faces looking painted on a balloon. Still, many of the scenes are rather impressive and keep you involved in the game. The sound really helps emphasize the trepidation and surprise that are involved in many of the scenarios.

Where the game really shines is in multiplayer. Train yourself up through the campaigns, and then join a faction on line to see if you can compete against net players. You can have up to 16 people playing at a time, and it gets for pretty intricate strategies if you're good! Each character type has a wide variety of attacks to choose from, and its own strengths and weaknesses.

Highly recommended for mature first-person-shooter fans. Might be a little much for younger players, between the body parts flying and death screams that sound pretty constantly as you prowl the halls.
