Story & Themes
The Alien campaign is set in a laboratory and follows the Alien known as Specimen 6. Specimen 6 attempts an escape, but it stopped by Mr. Weyland, a character who appears in the Marine campaign and is in charge of the lab. After it is fully grown, Specimen 6 successfully escapes the lab, freeing other Aliens as well as the Matriarch. They establish a hive on the colony and begin to pick off the Marines who arrive. The Matriarch is killed by the Marine from the previous campaign in a fire, and as a result Specimen 6 builds another hive in the ventilation vent of a ship where it starts the process of transforming into the new queen.
In the Predator campaign, a newly elite Predator called "Dark" is sent to the human colony of the other two campaigns. Dark battles both Aliens and Marines before he infiltrates Weyland's lab which has been built over a Predator pyramid. There, he recovers a wrist bracer that he uses to destroy both the pyramid and the surrounding colony in order to purge the temple of the human violation to its sanctity.
- The game's creators have claimed that its extreme violence is necessary for it to be a faithful adaptation of the film. Do you agree with this logic, or does the violence seem gratuitous or overdone?
- Which campaign was your favorite? Why?
- Do you think Aliens vs. Predators has "heroes" or "villains"? Could the humans be considered the good guys or not?
