hor­ri­fy­ing Movie xenomorph tie-ins don’t ex­pe­ri­ence have the best makes rep­u­ta­tion, up for ev­ery but Cre­ative bad movie As­sem­bly’s game of the last 20 years. Fol­low­ing Ri­p­ley’s daugh­ter, Amanda, as she in­ves­ti­gates her mother’s dis­ap­pear­ance, Alien Iso­la­tion is con­troller grip­ping, face-pulling/ hug­ging lev­els of tense. Know­ing you are be­ing hunted by the xenomorph is bad enough, but throw in the ex­quis­ite sound de­sign as an empty space sta­tion echoes around you, and your mo­tion tracker starts to bleep, and it be­comes joy­ously un­bear­able. Play alone in the dark… if you dare.
