Created by Rebellion Developments and published exclusively for the Atari Jaguar in 1994, Alien vs Predator is a first-person action game where you can play as either a marine, the predator, or an alien, and must fight your way through various levels on a marine training base that has been overrun by aliens. As well as the alien problem, a predator has also arrived to hunt xenomorphs, which means a three-way fight among adversaries.
Rebellion‘s Rogue Trooper was originally released in 2006 for Windows, PlayStation 2 and XBox, and it was remastered in HD by Tick Tock Games and re-released in 2017. It is the remastered “Redux” version that we’re looking at here.
For those who don’t know: Rogue Trooper is based on the character made famous in the British comic, 2000AD. Famous enough for him to have appeared in a ZX Spectrum game in 1986, and an Amiga/Atari ST game in 1991. And also slated to appear in a forthcoming film by Duncan Jones, who directed Moon (2009), and Warcraft: The Beginning (2016), among others. So Rogue Trooper does have some pedigree.
The Nintendo GameCube version of Dredd vs. Death was published by Evolved Games in North America and Sierra in Europe in 2003. It was developed by Rebellion, the owner of the 2000AD brand.
Judge Dredd: Dredd vs. Death is a first-person shooter that at least tries to make good use of the Judge Dredd license, and to a large extent it succeeds quite well.
Released in 2003 for PC, PlayStation 2, GameCube and XBox, Judge Dredd: Dredd vs. Death is a first-person shoot ’em up developed by Rebellion and based on the infamous 2000AD comic character of Judge Dredd. And – so far (at the time of writing) – it is really the only Judge Dredd game that does the source material any real justice (pun intended). The game is almost twenty years old now, but it’s still worth playing nowadays.
First released in 2003 by Sierra, Judge Dredd: Dredd vs. Death is a first-person shooter developed by Rebellion that is based on the famous British comic character who rose to prominence in 2000AD comic during the ’70s and ’80s. In fact: Dredd vs. Death is arguably the only decent Judge Dredd game that’s been made, to date.
2000AD is a famous, British science fiction comic that was first launched in 1977 (26th February 1977 to be precise), and I distinctly remember getting and reading the first issue and being hooked from that moment on. 2000AD pulled no punches, with its hard-hitting fantasy storylines and stand-out characters, and it made a big impression on anyone who read it.
Eye of the Storm was the first game released by Rebellion Developments in 1993, and also the first video game designed by Jason Kingsley, co-founder of Rebellion and current owner of 2000AD comic.
