This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of one of three protagonists: a human marine, an Alien, or a Predator (alien-like, but with dreadlocks). Players find themselves in deep space, on the futuristic frontier of human colonization; they find themselves seeking out missing colonists (in the case of the marines), defending their queen and propagating the species (the Aliens), or protecting the secrets of a mysterious pyramid (the Predators). As a marine, players use machine guns, sniper rifles, pistols, flamethrowers, and explosives to shoot and kill hostile enemies; the combat is frenetic and the blood splatter is fantastical—green or acidic acid emitting from the creatures. The Alien and Predator attacks represent the most intense aspects of violence: wrist-blades are used to pierce through eyes, rip off heads; an Alien's inner mouth can smash through human skulls; a baby alien will burst out of the chest of a human host's body; heads and human spines are torn out (shown close-up) then gently caressed—red blood dripping from the spinal column. The game contains strong profanity (200 or so f**ks, around 175 sh*ts) uttered by angry marines; for example, "This sh*t ain't in my contract" and "F**k, f**k, f**k!" In one bar scene, players view a hologram of a pole dancer wearing a G-string and a bra (the scene accounts for the Suggestive Themes descriptor, not the Mature rating).
