Killer Freaks From Outer Space Isn't Your Average Shooter

Firstly, because it controls a little differently. But, more importantly, because of the player's character, and the game's setting.

You're not a space marine. Or a US Marine. Or a cyborg, bounty hunter or cowboy. You're...a balding old British geezer, a crackpot alien invasion nut who has the last laugh when aliens invade and start eating everybody's face off.

Note also the alien's resemblance to a certain other Ubisoft franchise, one synonymous with Nintendo consoles...

Aliens: Check

Guns: Check

Well, it's already looking like a pretty average shooter.

Setting: Earth

Still average. (ie Halo, EDF, Contra, Halflife, X-Com, hell, even Ecco)

Character: Everyday Joe

Hmmm...such as Halflife, Prey, MDK, Mother, Bart vs The Space Mutants.

Yeah yeah, I get it. It's not the same as "space marines vs aliens," but that doesn't mean it isn't an average shooter.

If you want to show me a non-average shooter, show me a game where you throw apples and paper at agnostic accountant caracals who only want to love you in a world made of custard vibrations and where your character is the personification of gravity.

Edit, forgot this:

Looks interesting, and also looks like they are going to go L4D with it. Salivates.
