Very graphic game for fans of alien or predator

This game is super graphic but in that 2010 Ps3 game style but the graphics dont hold up so it does not look realistic therefor not making it as violent as say mortal kombat X and there is a lot of swearing from the marines so I'd say 16 and up.

This title has:

Too much violence

Parents say (10):
Kids say (30):

Even though the "Aliens" and "Predator" brands (based on feature films) aren't a hot commodity these days, the game's three distinct races could've made for an exhilarating shooter/horror experience. But each of three solo campaigns prove to be uninspiring and repetitive. Many of the missions start out strong, giving gamers a good sense of purpose -- seek out colonists, defend the alien queen, or protect the pyramid and the secrets contained within them (depending on your species) -- but after a few battles it feels like a "been there, done that" game. The same goes for the lackluster multiplayer modes that tend to favor quantity over quality, though playing Deathmatch mode on the Refinery map had its moments. Overall, the audiance for Alien vs. Predator is the fans of the franchise. It might be best to wait for it to be in the bargain bin (which shouldn't be long).

Online interaction: Aliens vs. Predator game offers a number of online multiplayer modes and players can also chat using a headset, if desired. As a result you might hear other players use profanity in a head-to-head game.
