Three things I don’t get:
1. Alien fanaticism
2. Predator fanaticism
3. Love for beat ’em ups
Seriously. I mean, don’t get me wrong; I liked Alien (but the second, third, and fourth movies didn’t really tickle me), and I liked Predator and even Predator 2 (for the laffs). But I don’t get the infatuation with making them fight each other in comics or video games or those terrible movies by that Anderson guy. And I definitely don’t get the point of games where you’re supposed to walk right and hit Y over and over until you get to the end. Now, to be fair, sometimes you hit B to JUMP and then Y, but really, it’s very little variety.
Now, in the defense of this game, it’s got some awesome art. Like, the backgrounds are as good as in a lot of the IREM games. That’s saying something because those guys knew how to draw a pixelly SNES background.
I really don’t know what to say. If you like mindless xenopunching, and picking up projectiles, and then throwing those projectiles, and you wonder who’d win in a fight between alien and predator (spoiler: all signs point to predator), check it out. If you’re not remotely bored, don’t bother. Seriously. WRITING this is boring.
