Another unique gameplay element were the consequences of the players' death depending on the species they played as.
As the Marines, if the player die, he/she maybe cloned by Weyland-Yutani, but the Company will sometimes decide not to clone you, but leave you to an "honorable death".
As the Aliens, the players can 'possess' nearby facehuggers, drones, or Queens.
