You know, from my opinion, the first AVP gold (or orginal) is better then AVP 2. Sure, AVP 2 has better graphics and control, but have you ever thought of the AI? AVP 2 is still one of my favorates, but the AI of the COMS are less "realistic" and "logical." As from experience i was playing avp and i was a marine attacked by 5 aliens. Then i ran into a bunker and locked the door. But there were windows so i was guarding them if a alien popped out of the only way in, the window. So i was waiting in there, but none of the aliens came out. So i thought, hmm, maybe a bug, but then the roof popped off and about 10 aliens raided me and i died. From my experience from AVP 2, the game was more scripted, almost a RPG like game. So i hope people think of this and find a copy in their attic and start playing it and find out how addicting it is!
