Aliens vs Predator Classic 2000
The very first serious Aliens vs Predator game for PC was recently re-released on Steam and GOG as "Aliens vs Predator Classic 2000". The game was not exactly revolutionary back in 1999 at it's first release, but it was a solid game and it had an interesting angle to it's single-player campaigns. The game could be played as any of the 3 opposing species, Aliens, Human or Predator. This Redux mod is ONLY for the Aliens vs Predator Classic 2000 (Steam and GOG re-release), NOT the original CD version of the game. It includes new HD textures, more detailed 3Dmodels and a modified ENB render similar to the one used in the Deus Ex Revision project.

Game info: Aliens versus Predator was developed by Rebellion
and released in 1999 by Fox Interactive. It was made with the same game idea in
mind as the 1994 Aliens vs Predator release for Atari Jaguar. The game has 3
separate campaigns, which allows the player to take control of each species.
Aliens, Marines & Predator. This take on single-player campaigns was new, and
got a lot of positive feedback. Technically the game was good, but nothing out
of the ordinary. The game mostly stood out due to it's 3-way-split campaigns and
it's atmosphere. Today the graphics and mechanics of the game are outdated and
far from impressive compared to resent games. This redux project will not bring
the game up to par in any way, but it helps a lot on replayability. It comes
with new textures and models plus a new render. The game design and levels are
still extremely simple, and the effects are not exactly stunning, but the game
still has the creepy atmosphere and somehow manages to be fun to play, even
Plot (Spoiler alert): The storylines in each campaign is completely independent of one another. As a Colonial Marine, the player starts the story at a research station on LV-426. The humans are studying the alien spacecraft at the location where the first Alien eggs were found in the 1979 movie, Alien. Things of course don't go according to plan, and everyone are attacked by the Aliens. The player must fight his/her way through the research facility, the alien space-ship and a second colony. Here the player tries to shutdown the cooling-system to cause an explosion and wipe out all the Aliens at once. After finishing up on LV-426, the player escapes in a drop-ship and flies to a nearby space-station. Here the battle continues against both Aliens, Predators, face-huggers, cybernetically-enhanced super-aliens and even an Alien/Predator hybrid. At last the player faces the Alien queen, which concludes the human campaign.
As an Alien, the player is given the task of defend the Alien hive from human invaders. Ultimately the player must hide on an evacuating spaceship and get onboard the human marines mother-ship. After doing what Aliens do, the self-destruct system is activated and the player must reach an escape shuttle. Next place is a Gateway Station where the player annihilates more human marines, and finally reaching a spaceship that is departing for Earth. Two Predators must however be defeated before the player can enter the shuttle to Earth.
As a Predator the story unfolds on three different planets. At first the player is hunting human marines while recovering a captured Predator spaceship from a human military base. Aliens are attacking the base at the same time, and the player discovers that the humans have created an Alien/Predator hybrid. During the fight against the hybrid, the facility's self-destruct mechanism is triggered, and the player has to escape in the Predator spaceship. This takes the player to Fiorina "Fury" 161, the prison planet from the 1992 Alien 3 movie. Here more Aliens and marines are fighting, and the player reaches a marine-controlled Alien habitat with cybernetically-enhanced Aliens and an Alien Queen.
