Cedega Install - Part 1

For : Cedega / Mepis Linux

One day Monolith will make a bad game. Aliens Verus Predator 2 was not that game. With no word on an Aliens Versus Predator 3 game, we'll just have to do with this masterpiece.

I can live with that.

The bad news is that this game doesn't actually qualify as playable. Even on my most powerful test systems, this game struggled to maintain 20fps. Add in extremely fuzzy graphics even on high settings, and most people would write this off. It, is, however, very close to be playable. The graphics are not actually corrupted, and the game hasn't actually locked up or caused a seg fault on either ATi or Nvidia based systems. In single player mode, the slower pacing actually makes this a playable title.
