Aliens vs. Predator Classic 2000 isn't exactly the game Rebellion released all the way back in 1999. It's actually 2010 remaster that optimized the original game for modern PCs, bundled in additional material from its Millennium expansion and Gold Edition, all with Xbox 360 controller support thrown on top.
