<p style="text-align: justify;">Wow, has it really been 20 years since Capcom took on the <em>Aliens vs Predator</em> license? This is one of the better brawlers from this era. Very much worthy of being played if you can track down a cabinet. This one never came home, no, the SNES game by Activision doesn't count. This is Capcom and this is a brawler on the CPS-2 hardware which means Final Fight style graphics and gameplay. The licensed movie characters are just waiting to slice you in half. ![s-l1000.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmZzLW3mwZ6nVnPDn23oyDzaLzd4nuQxkuynZF6rRmCmD9/s-l1000.jpg) <h2 style="text-align: justify;">The Aliens vs Predator game we wanted</h2> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Aliens vs Predator</em> offers four playable characters, including two Predators. <em>Aliens vs Predator</em> is a quarter muncher at its heart and it doesn't shy away from it. If you are familiar with <em>Final Fight</em> or <em>Streets of Rage</em> then you are already familiar with <em>Aliens vs Predator</em>.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Some interesting trivia around this one. Originally this was planned to be released alongside the movie and be tied in closely with the film. As we all know, the movie was delayed about a decade. Also, there was a Sega 32X port planned but it was scrapped before it got very far along in development. Imagine had this game been released for the 32X? It might have been a game changer. Sega would have been in a unique position since they released the Saturn in May of 1995.</p> <iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/gwulA6nX234" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe> <h2>Arcade only</h2> <p style="text-align: justify;">Sadly, there is no home port of this game, the Activision SNES game by the same name does not count. Therefore, you will have to search out an actual cabinet for this one. <a href="http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5575120518&toolid=10001&campid=5338312325&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2FArcade-Jukeboxes-Pinball-%2F66502%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_nkw%3Daliens%2Bvs%2Bpredator%2Barcad" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">eBay</a><img style="text-decoration: none; border: 0; padding: 0; margin: 0;" src="http://rover.ebay.com/roverimp/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5575120518&toolid=10001&campid=5338312325&customid=&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]" />, though a wild card with these things, is a worthy place to check.
