Alien: Isolation (Available for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC) The game is set in 2137, 15 years after the events of Alien and 42 years before the events of Aliens. It focuses on Ellen Ripley’s daughter Amanda who, while investigating her mother’s disappearance, is ordered to go to the space station Sevastopol to recover data that could help locate her mother, unaware that an Alien has already infested the station.

I’m not the biggest fan of horror games because I’m a big chicken. When it comes to horror movies I love them, but put me in the driver seat of a horror game and I will have a bad time. But this game has gotten some good praise and would be great for the franchise to get a reboot. Key features included in this game are:

  • OVERCOME AN EVER-PRESENT DEADLY THREAT – Experience persistent fear as a truly dynamic and reactive Alien uses its senses to hunt you down and respond to your every move.
  • IMPROVISE TO SURVIVE – Hack systems, scavenge for vital resources and craft items to deal with each situation. Will you evade your enemies, distract them or face them head on?
  • EXPLORE A WORLD OF MYSTERY AND BETRAYAL – Immerse yourself in the detailed setting of Sevastopol, a decommissioned trading station on the fringes of space. Encounter a rich cast of inhabitants in a world scarred by fear and mistrust.
