Hello fellow Realmers. Today we will be reviewing the latest Fast Forces set of two long time rivals. It comes complete with 12 characters! I know that it is a lot, but you will soon see why. AVP! This is truely a well rounded Rock/Scissor/Paper/Lizard/Spock set. For example you will see how:
Predator beats Drones
Drones beat Shuriken
Shuriken beats Alien
Alien beats Predator
The Stalker and Alpha add the "any-ones' game" variables.
The Queen is a monster but Lathan makes the Predators more dangerous.
We will start with the Queen. What a beast! Reminds us of Master Mold, Alien style. Best not take your time dealing with this one.
Then comes the Drones, easy to KO, but if not KO'd fast enough, they will soon overwhelm their opponents.
And the Alpha, this is the Boss, the Big Guy, and in true pushy Big Brother fashion, ordering his siblings around.
But that is only the slimy half of this box set, now we have the side that is not afraid to get their hands dirty.
First up is The Predator. This mutli-point dial allows you to send him in as the lone hunter like we see in Predator 1 & 2 and Requiem or as the rookie apart of the hunting pack.
The Shuriken will keep you guessing as you "Look For The Distortion".
And Sanaa Lathan is a handy piece to have to Enhance the game.
This set also come with the addition of 2 new ATAs...
