Buy a copy of Space Hulk. Better/easier to understand rules, very fun game where you can kill tons of aliens.

This is different than Level 7. I love that game, but this is a different feel. I can't tell you whether you should buy it or not, but I can tell you they are at least quite different.

Check videos of gameplay, and download the rulebook. I hardly believe anyone can answer as to what you will like.

Cheers,
K.

If you like the movies and/or want to kill aliens, check out Legendary Encounters: Alien deck building game.

You'll play it more often, and even people don't normally go for deck-building games enjoy it.


If you want miniatures, then buy this. But otherwise check out LE Alien. You can trust my advice; I'm really an okay guy.

I would disagree on it being better/easier then space hulk. That has a lot of its own issues.

AVP is very easy to teach and understand with 2.0. Models are also very noob friendly as they are single pieces.

If you like Level 7 AND the property you'll probably enjoy this one a lot. It has a lot of flavor.

The aforementioned Space Hulk is a bit outdated mechanic and option wise HOWEVER it's pedigree is justified and also a good buy.
If you like Predators AND Aliens opt for AVP. If you just like aliens and don't care for Predator, go for Space Hulk.

I personally think it is a lot of stuff you need to remember, but the game itself is not that hard to teach. But that is the reason I am creating rules references.

Pros:

1, some very nice Alien, Predator and Marine minis... (that's worth the entrance price alone for some people);

2, reasonably balance 3 player game (there is a shortage of decent 3p mini games);

3, the mechanics do a reasonable job of running a 3 way battle between aliens, predators and marines.

Cons:

1, rules are clunky and the rule book is far from the best;

2, 1ED minis are delicate and annoying to put together; and

3, only 3 player.

BOTTOM-LINE: there are better games but the reason to play this game is A v P. If that's something you really want to play, then it is worth getting. If you are not married to the license, avoid.
