Based on the popular and terrifying Fox film sagas, Aliens and Predator, Aliens versus Predator Gold Edition pits three of the deadliest species against each other in a bloodthirsty battle for the ultimate prize of survival. Players take their stand as a Colonial Marine, a Predator, or an Alien as they stalk their way through some of the most chillingly detailed futuristic environments ever seen on a Mac.
