Actually ended up putting this down before completely finishing it. Which is a shame because I love Alan Dean Foster's original novels and most of his movie novelizations, but this was too much of a game walk-through with characters making decisions that only made sense when playing a game. If this were a straight up story of alien exploration I think it would have been much different but the game aspect threw it off and kept it from being very good. Disappointing.
