AVP2's look has unfortunately aged terribly, I'd love to see a remake.

You mean graphic wise? I don't really mind that much in games, I care much more about design, immersion and athmosphere. I still like "AVP2's look" on the enviromnents and creatures more than in the newer games, AVP2010 copied AVP2004 style too much, AVP2 really captured well the feeling of the original movies IMO. Only Isolation reached that level.

Still I use a few mods in AVP2, nothing like AVP Classic's redux mod, just a few minor hd and texture updates, as well as some better creatures skins that made the game better than it already was. Even in other games like Gears of War, Unreal Tournament, Dead Space... the old outdated graphics from the first games just feel much better to look at, since the design makes up for it.

I would love a remake as well, but sometimes while the graphics look more realistic they can lose the athmosphere of the original game in the process and that kind of ruins for me a bit. Franchises like Halo did it well in the remakes, but Gears of War kind of changed a few things in it's look that bothered me.

AVP Extinction would also look great with new graphics, as well as Predator Concrete Jungle. Unfortunally all those Alien-Predator related game just didn't make much of an impact outside the fanbase.

I think the original DS still looks good and will do for a long time, AVP2's style and limited polygon use along with glibs etc hasn't aged well IMO.
It's story, worldbuilding and atmosphere is still fantastic but it feels lacking in detail in the environment, and not just texturally compared to today.

I think it could do with a remake in the style of the upcoming RE2- a complete brick by brick remake.

I got my Xbox out last night to give this a shot but it wasn't reading any discs :( I've had that thing since I was a kid.

Good time to finally play it I guess. One of the few AvP games I have missed.

Also, map editor of some sort.

This! just like in the old days when you were able to customize an RTS map in order to mimic some RPGs mechanics, such as dialogue between the party and non-player characters, experience points, quests and alternate endings :)

The game was decent fun but felt very bare-bones, it would have been better to release it on PC, i mena the campaigns were very short and once you finished them, that was it, no replay value or any other game modes.

Are there actually any other console-exclusive RTS games? Seems like a one of a kind thing as these things just don't fit together.
