Opinions on Extinction
I think that's it was a well thought out game lots of different and unseen units and abilities, with a rock paper scissors type lay out to it. I didn't see that at first but after 4 months of continuous play and I mean continuous I played that game every day not so much now but still once a month if I can.
Marines = Rock
Alien = Paper
Predator = Scissors
Marines have the synthetics that's gets past the cloaking of predator and its one of the cheaper units plus the range and attack strength of most marines means you could just use attack move and stop when to many units are heavily damaged have about 3 medics, 2 com techs and 2 synthetics the rest infantry, smartgunner(flamethrowers more for vs'in aliens) whatever you like but when vs predators have those core units and your gonna be fine for the most part anyway.
Alien is simple upgrade drones and uses them to kill everything or let them get one hit on a host before the hp hits 0 to make the host cystic and any transbreed alien cystic. Alien warrior does 20 damage that's fixed it can only do 20 damage (on normal anyway) even when vs'in hydra's and blaze's but when vs'in a spear master is different it does less than 10 damage. If you have played the game you know that their attack rate isn't slow, that and there upgrade I'll keep it simple their upgrade is AWESOME!!! They die, spray acid everywhere (not that much damage but its a plus that can kill enemies) come back to life with half health in the case of a cystic's is 200 hp a horde of warrior's and drones is perfect for taking out humans
Predator... ^_^ spear masters and brawler's can knock back (the spear master only when vs'in more then one enemy in close combat) all transbreeds but not the predalien. All transbreed except the predalien do between 4-9 damage on a spear master making the spear master a perfect pick for a hive assault hydra's do more damage on aliens, exosuits and synthetics. The blaze can stop the warrior's upgrade from being used because they die on fire and are unable to come back to life and drone cant stand up to its attack long enough to kill it if not in a high enough number. Predalien's may gain more hp but the lack of defense means you could easily kill a horde of 750 or less hp predalien's with 1-2 hyrda's because hydra's do more damage on aliens and predalien's have the lowest defense of all the adult aliens their no match for them, plus the range and medi-ket and if their upgraded
In my opinion all these little things that you pick up while play'in the game determine its worth and there is so much more that i could say but this for me is keeping it short;
I love Aliens vs Predator Extinction and if there was a AVP:E 2 coming out there isn't a force of earth that could stop me getting it
PS ravagers can destroy my whole theory ^_^
