    Interesting tidbit about this game. It was one of the first (if not the first) game to have the left stick move, right stick look control scheme which is now the standard. There’s a funny review where the author trashes the game for this control scheme:

    [https://www.gamespot.com/reviews/alien-resurrection-review/1900-2637344/](https://www.gamespot.com/reviews/alien-resurrection-review/1900-2637344/)

    Amusing part here:

    “The game’s control setup is its most terrifying element. The left analog stick moves you forward, back, and strafes right and left, while the right analog stick turns you and can be used to look up and down. Too often, you’ll turn to face a foe and find that your weapon is aimed at the floor or ceiling while the alien gleefully hacks away at your midsection. Add to the mix a few other head scratchers – such as how the triangle button controls item and health use – and you’ll be wondering how Sony let this get by without requesting a few different control configuration options.
    Beyond the control issues, Alien Resurrection is gruelingly hard.”
