The rookie grunt gets separated from his squad on another world, and must navigate his way through a seemingly abandoned space station in search of his comrades. At first, all he has is a pistol and a motion tracker, and it's here were we put the developers to the test. In previous Aliens games, the motion tracker sounds different and doesn't beep as frequently. Not so here. Rebellion nailed the device's familiar audio, and it displays approaching targets in blue, making this an indispensable tool in the fight against xenomorphs."
