Alien vs Predator: The Last of His Clan
Two great movie bad guys go claw to claw in this titanic hand-held battle. You play the Predator, a musclebound monster that's fighting his way through the claustrophobic caverns in search of the Alien Queen. Before he gets to her, though, he'll have to overcome everybody's favorite crawlers in all their creepy forms (Facehug-gers, Chestbursters, and Warriors). Mazes, Eggs, and Acid Slime present further obstacles. Fortunately, the Predster has various weapons and an onscreen Radar Display. It won't be easy, but it'll be exciting!
Activision's given this cosmic clash a first-class treatment. Large, well-rendered sprites move crisply against atmospheric backgrounds. As usual in an Activision game, the sounds are terrific, with propulsive music and sonic effects driving the action. You'll be playing with these space invaders until the Aliens come home.
- PROTIP: Crawlers are usually lurking at the bottom of vertical shafts, so go down blasting.
