Aliens Vs. Predator 2 Patches

Sierra has released new patches for Aliens Vs. Predator 2 for download from their patch ftp server, bringing the English, German, French, Italian and Spanish editions of Monolith's three-way first-person shooter to version 1.0.9.4. The files require a 6.4 MB download each, and this release addresses a pair of gameplay problems, adds the Queen and the Exosuit to multiplayer, adds new chat-line commands, makes some multiplayer improvements, and fixes over a dozen bugs as listed in the included Readme file.

I actually feel that the game has SUFFERED for its attempt to balance Aliens/Predators/Marines as equal creatures.

I agree. A game shouldn't be horrendously unbalanced, but there are cases where there is an inherent imbalance exists. Like this game, where the three classes are totally different--it ruins the experience to try and make them equal in all respects. But then, I suppose you'd need another way of determining a "winner" instead of straight kills for a game like this.

At any rate, I loved the single player, didn't play much multiplayer.

Much like Rebellion's masterpiece, you have to take the game into your own hands to ensure a balanced experience.

Deathmatch? Yaaaaaaaaaaaawn... Isn't everyone OVER that by now? Like most of the recent releases AVP2's MP really shines when a trio of nervous Marines must try and make it to the APC with a pair of tricky Aliens stalks them.

This game is awesome in MP, but why arn't there that many people playing it? Sigh, everyone seems to be playing Counter-strike 24/7, will it ever die?

DIE Counterstrike! DIE DIE!
