I’m not a big fan of horror games, but I made an exception for this one after watching all the movies. To put it briefly, it’s one of the best psychological horror games ever… and possibly one of the best Alien games yet.
The story isn’t anything out of the extraordinary. It works very well with the source material, with everything that you would expect and some clichés. In short and spoiling as less has possible, the story is about Ripley’s daughter who gets to a space station that has some information about her mother and then ALIENS!!!!…. I hate that semi-god bastard…
One of the things that I liked was the Weyland-Yutani backstory. The game has a lot of information about the company and makes you want to know more about this shady entity.
Graphics and Sound
If you love the Alien Franchise you will love this game. The game is perfect at mimicking the atmosphere and the looks of the movies. It feels like the game was made by big fans of the movies and they added every little bit of the movies into the game.
The sound… where do I start? It’s accurate. This word seems soft but you will sh£t you pants because of that. The combination of the soundtrack and the noises make the atmosphere even tenser (I should work in meteorology). From the sound of the ships to the beeps of the computer, I had nightmares because of the sound those computers and save points made.
The game is an FPS horror game, like Outlast, where you feel powerless even if you own an arsenal capable of making the American Army blush. You’ll have the normal puzzle, the normal enemies and the normal Alien Bastards…
This is one of those games that would be awesome to see someone else play in VR.
Well, here is the point that makes this game one of the best psychological horror games of all time. It’s so good that I thought the game would never end and I would suffer for all eternity. Had the game been half length, it would have been perfect. When the Alien first appears it’s like “OMG! OMG! OMG!…WHAT’S THAT SOUND!?!?… NOOOOOooo….” and at the end it’s more like “RUN FOREST! RUN FROM THAT ONE HIT KILL ASS SEMI-GOD!”. There were some cool ideas but in the end it’s too much of the same thing throughout the game.
In the end, I can say that it’s a very good horror game. I have some issues with it but it’s a very good game nonetheless. It’s one of the best games of the Alien franchise and must be played by fans.
If you like this game, you would probably like these as well:
- Resident Evil 7
If you got this far, I hope you’ve enjoyed it and see you around. Next, I have a reward for you. I don’t know what it is but it is for you 😀
They say that this is an Alien Cheese…
