Writing about some of the scariest enemies in gaming reminded me that I needed to get this comic out of my system. I can’t recommend Alien Isolation enough, if you have any sign of taste for sci-fi, survival-horror games, or just a fan of the Alien series, you really really can’t miss this one.
Alien Isolation was developed with a lot of respect and love for the source material. Not only did they capture the real sense of claustrophobic sci-fi horror and despair of the original movie, but they also went a lot further by having all that dated futuristic feel from the 80’s.
Of course the biggest star of the show is the Xenomorph itself; it’s relentless, lethal and a real force of nature that you can’t kill nor mess around, and the anecdote in this comic is a fair representation of my own experience through this game.
So it took the industry a few decades to finally get the Alien franchise right, now let’s just hope Hollywood is catching up and give us a proper Terminator and Predator game in the near future.
