Yeah, it's the game from the second chapter of the Alien franchise, the one directed by James Cameron, and it appears on our monitors in the guise of a subjective view shoot'em up, I think it would be called "survival horror" nowadays, am I wrong? You control the six members of the extermination team sent to kill the aliens infesting a remote base on a blunt planetoids somewhere over the rainbow, AND THEY ARE ALL GOING TO DIE. Which is quite normal in a videogame as only a very low percentage of attempts end with a successful result. But I think you know. Anyway, the game is very tense and immersive, despite being very samey graphically and gameplay wise. So, it's ok.
