Don't expect a AAA title, but there is a solid shooter here in the aliens universe. From the looks of it, this game was linked to the more recent movie Prometheus.
If you like aliens its worth a rent. As for game play this game does not "snap" your targeting onto a enemy like the more modern titles. I think this may be why some reviewers complain about it. And Yes you WILL die at the hands of the aliens until you get the hang of it.
