According to ESRB, this game contains:  Animated Blood & Gore, Animated Violence, Strong Language

Parents weary of the game's R-rated violence should also take note that kids who aren't battle-hardened gamers will not have an easy time with Aliens Versus Predator.  "Veterans" like myself, however, will relish the challenge.

Fans of FPSs who think variety is the spice of life, AvP is for you!

For multiplayer gamers, there are many interesting features like segregated species battles and tag-the-Alien. Other modes like the Co-operative modes remain unpolished and have yet to be fully realized, but with three unique characters to choose from, each with their own set of one-player missions, I'm not gonna complain. Hopefully, a later add-on will add even more multiplayer possibilities to what is already a bountiful package. Be forewarned that this game is really tough (even with the later-released patch that enables in-mission saves)!

In the 1980s, Chi grew up in small town on the outskirts of New York City called Jackson Heights. Latino actor, John Leguizamo referred to the town as the "melting pot of the world," and while living there, Chi was exposed to many diverse cultures, as well as a bevy of arcade classics such as Pac-Man, Space Ace, Space Harrier and Double Dragon. Chi's love of videogames only seemed to grow as his parents finally caved and bought him an 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System (after being the only kid in the block without one). In the 1990s, Chi finagled his way into the prestigious Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts.

Somewhere between all the gaming, Chi some how managed to finish high school and get into the New York Institute of Technology. At the same time, Chi also interned at Virtual Frontiers, an Internet software consultancy where he learned the ways of HTML. Soon after acquiring his BFA, Chi went on to become the lead Web designer of the Anti-Defamation League. During his tenure there, Chi was instrumental in redesigning and relaunching the non-profit organization's Web site.

Today, Chi is the webmaster of the American Red Cross in Greater New York and somehow managed to work through the tragic events of September 11th without losing his sanity. Chi considers his life's work and continues to be amazed that the web site is still standing after the recent dotcom fallout. It is his dream that will accomplish two things: 1) Redefine the grammar of videogames much the same way French film critic Andre Bazin did for the art of cinema and 2) bring game criticism to the forefront of mainstream culture much the same way Siskel & Ebert did for film criticism.
