Based on the arcade game, Alien vs. Predator is a fun, though run-of-the-mill side-scroller from Activision. Taking the role of the Predators, you must destroy Aliens that are inhabiting Earth as you hunt them down through city sewers, streets, and buildings that contain the deadly creatures and their queens. Both the Aliens and the Predators are well-animated and easily identifiable, and the music and sound effects are suitably creepy (if not overly-repetitive). Boss levels could use a dose of adrenaline, while a two-player mode and the ability to play as the Alien would have boosted replay value. Like the Predators in the game, Alien vs. Predator blends into the genre's background when it should be leading the pack. ~ Chris Cavanaugh, All Game Guide
