Going back-to-basics is not an advisable idea for a first-person shooter. Of all the genres of videogames, the FPS is the one that has to move forward with new ideas to avoid stagnation, and it is the lack of a fresh take that is the major problem with Aliens Vs Predator.
The entire experience feels like a step back to the shooters of the mid-to-late nineties and while the game doesn’t do anything majorly wrong, it doesn’t have anything that makes it stand out. A lack of new ideas is not always a hindrance as long as what the game does is done well. But even in this, AVP rarely rises above average.
