I just realized how long this game has been around.  Does anyone know the exact date it was released?

Extinction for the PS2 was the last video game I ever played.  Time flies.

I remember finding this game at the bargain bin at my local gamestop. I never got around to finishing it and let my cousin borrow it. I now have no idea where he is and I deeply miss and want to finish this game. Ugh..

I still have a X-Box copy of the game which I bought for my 360 years ago (since it was backward compatible). I did have a PS2 version which Fox gave to me way back at release but have no idea what happened to that. I don't even know why I got an ingame credit for Extinction since I didn't beta-test it (unlike AvP2 and Primal Hunt) and I provided no development input (like Predator: Concrete Jungle, which I didn't get a credit for).

Still, it probably would have fared much better on PC. Back when it was released, RTS games on consoles were still fledgling territory for the genre.

Ah Sadogoat, I remember seeing some of the early pictures for the marines in AvP2 on avpnews and being worried that they wouldn't have helmets. I also constantly asked you if the marines would have their helmets in the game. LOL. Sorry about that... I was probably around 12 years old.

Fun game- I hope a good developer manages to make another one. Imagine the awesomeness of it?

Yeah I hope they make a bigger variety of aliens like Predalien Ravagers, Quaraped spawned Carriers, and Gro'yte spawned Queens!

That and more numbers! I want to swarm the planet in biomechanical horrors! >:p

It was a fun distraction way back then.  Was always disappointed there wasn't a PVP feature to it though.

I've always really wanted to see this concept fleshed out in a PC release.(Where RTS games were born and truly shine, imho.)

Stylistically i'd want it to go closer to a photo-real look, instead of the AvP2 inspired comic-booky look. PVP, and offline skirmish modes. Along with other game modes would be great. Things like "Infestation" "hunt" "capture the CP" and so on. Also, map editor of some sort.


Likely it'll never happen. It seems the era of experimentation has come and gone.  :(

The AvP2 look fit the concept imo.

I think an RTS game would suit the AvP franchise quite nicely - I mean, Starcraft is essentially AvP right? I do agree that it should be PC based though.

I recently got my original Xbox out (my mrs wanted to play some games) in my room so I'm tempted to give AvPE another wack. I never finished it - was on the 6th level of them all.

And now it's 15 years old. I haven't played this game in so long.
