Project Y4 is OUT NOW! (Version R02d)
All right then. If Tiberian Sun is the unassailable classic of the Command & Conquer franchise, what of the sequel that emerged seven years later? Built merely by "EA" rather than Westwood Studios, is C&C3: Tiberium Wars a dead husk wearing the skin of C&C or a genuine continuation?
Ho ho ho.
From the name, you're all thinking that Alien vs. Predator is a dodgy franchise cash-in. Cheap cross-over, exploit two fanbases, job done?
In one sense, yes, it's a bit hammy and less refined than some of its predecessors. In another sense, though, no -- as an Alien prequel it holds up really really well. All the fun of Ancient Astronauts but done properly and plausibly, with coherent links to the other films but nothing too forced, continued themes of an uncaring universe rather than putting humanity at the centre of it... If you genuinely like Alien and Aliens, then Alien vs. Predator is actually a very good extrapolation. And it's fun!
