Aliens vs. Predator is a science fiction first-person shooter video game, developed by Rebellion Developments, the team behind the 1999 original PC game, and published by Sega for Microsoft Windows, the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. The game is based on the Alien vs. Predator franchise, a combination of the characters and creatures of the Alien franchise and the Predator franchise. There are three campaigns in the game, one for each race/faction (the Predators, the Aliens and the Colonial Marines), that, while separate in terms of individual plot and gameplay, form one overarching storyline.


Following the storyline of the campaign modes comes the multiplayer aspect of the game. In this Multiplayer section of the game, players face off in various different gametypes in various different ways.




Aliens vs. Predator is again a very intensive game like Lost Planet 2, but doesn't have that tessellation like it. For that reason we see that the HD 5850 Xtreme and GTX 560 Ti manage to perform very similar to each other with both cards offering us a 60 FPS average or better at 1680 x 1050. As for the HD 5830 Xtreme, we see it's able to perform slightly faster than the HD 6850, but like the HD 6850 it does struggle to break the 60 FPS barrier we aim for.
