You don't have to be familar with Prometheus, it just operates on Aliens logic. They are scary and tough - your default guns are not going to do much, even to the weak "warrior caste" Xenomorphs. You'd rely on your lifeform radar to see if there are any Xenomorphs ahead, and even sounds play a role. Enemies too can hear your gunfire and they will come after you! Luckily, you can find some upgrades for your guns, and that makes all the difference in the world.
The only mechanic that is slightly tedious is the behind cover shooting - hide behind a crate, and occasionally press Y to fire at a human enemy. You'd miss most of the time, and you'd find this "tactic" annoying. Also, enemies respawn in this game, which makes for a frustrating backtrack to a location you need...
Things I liked:
Once your character dies, he's gone! You keep adding new squad mates to your team, so make sure you find more characters to play with in case you die.
Limited resources (health, ammo, grenades, etc)
Sound effects from the movies!
Slow paced tension building approach to horror
Dropping flares (like Ripley does in Aliens) for when you may have to backtrack to an area.
Pulse radar! :D (makes game creepy)
Things I didn't like:
Fighting humans while behind cover can be a bit tedious.
A good buy if you're collecting NDS hidden gems and need something fun and well made.
