Brief history of Alien vs Predator

What about that great Aliens vs Predator game on the Jaguar? That was a great addition to the Alien/Predator mythos, and possibly the only good game on that system.

I was gonna ask the exact same question, nice one!

I thought the Jaguar game was fantastic, definately game me a few scares when playing in the dark! :P Finished the game as all 3 characters and really enjoyed it!

The original, 3D, and probably the best of the franchise, Alien Vs Predator for PC? I'm not sure how they missed that off there. Sacrilege!

Alien 3 on the SNES as amazing, and I loved bits of AVP2! Nice list.

What about the side scrolling old Aliens arcade game, power ups, driving (on rails) sections, lift shaft battles.

Awesome, spent many hours in the arcades on that one.

There was also a proper crap text based Aliens on the C64.

Yeah there is much more.

I would really love a sequel/remake to concrete jungle, with this gens tech it could turn out really good.

I'm loving that fact that they used another screenshot of Predator for the 'Aliens The Computer Game'... Was it that bad, eh?

Weren't they called "Chest-bursters' not 'stomach-bursters?

And missing AVP1 ): bad times!

Again another asks why the Jag version was omitted from this list, damn it was the best game on the bloody thing in my opinion.
What you need to remember is that there's what people want to hear, there's what people want to believe, there's everything else, THEN there's the truth!

what about the 2006 Aliens Extermination arcade unit. I've never played it but its supposed to be the best light gun shooter in years.

This is very poor c&vg. whoever did their homework on this should get a grade E in my opinion. Loads of games left off. Alien the gun arcade game for example and I have to mention although other people have the Jaguar version. Still in my collection and one of the best fps ever. The chinking of the chains and the distant hum of the engines. No other game has come close to the atmosphere of the Alien films. I think we a least deserve an answer as to why this was so half assed thrown together.
