The game closely resembles Aliens vs. Predator Collectible Card Game and is compatible.[1] The game was said to have a role-playing feel as characters search for equipment, look for chances to attack, and comb the streets for characters important to the future.[3] Gameplay involves one player assuming the role of Skynet trying to eliminate the other player who plays as the human Resistance.[1] Players take turns by playing Location cards where they play Character cards.[4] A player may win in one of three ways: eliminating all of your opponent's main characters, fulfill 10 Mission Points from Mission cards, or safeguard/eliminate 10 Importance points worth of supporting characters.[1]

The game was criticized because in tournaments players would have to maintain two decks, one for Skynet and one for the Resistance.[1]
