Thanks Jerykk!

Edit: Looks basically exactly like Mass Effect, but with a 60s theme. I'm not sure why human agents have all these powers, but perhaps they will explain that during the story (freebasing alien technology?)

More disconcerting is that the AI is terrible. At 2:30, he gives his 2 squad mates orders to take cover behind a wall, and one of them, like a fucking tard, goes and sits on the OTHER SIDE of said wall, in full view of approximately 800,000 aliens. I guess they liked that 'feature' so much in Mass Effect they decided to copy it?

The Alien AI is also pants. They walk straight into mines that they literally saw being placed right in front of them, they do not scatter when grenades are thrown at them, they sit behind cover waiting to be picked off even though they outnumber the humans about 4 to 1 and do not charge or flank, and finally, when the human player flanks THEM, they just sit there and don't even respond to him.

I've changed my mind. I'll pick it up when it's 5 bucks.
