The whole game is great. Nothing incredibly new when it comes to story, but it hit all the right notes
that people wanted (unlike the AvP films). The Marine missions in the POC made you feel like the USCM in ALIENS investigating Hadley's Hope, and even built up the tension by having no enemies in the first mission. The Predator missions start you out like the creature in the first Predator film, hunting humans in the jungle, culminating with an alien hunt. The alien missions had you start as a facehugger sneaking around, trying to find a suitable host, then as a chestburster trying to find a safe place to grow. There were also some real nice mods out for it as well (I cobbled together an interesting one).
Alas, there seems to be some kind of issue with Monolith and their games, as none of their old ones have appeared on services like Steam or GOG. A real shame, because No One Lives Forever is also a great series.
