After the lacklustre, semi-prequel film Prometheus left us with a bad aftertaste, a continuation of the main Alien story is just what we needed to wash it away – and here it is in game form. Alien: Isolation cleverly inserts itself into the franchise by assigning you the role of Amanda Ripley, the daughter of Sigourney Weaver’s character from the film
Seeking answers to why her mother never returned home, Amanda arrives at a space station that has recovered the flight recorder from the Nostromo, the ill-fated vessel from the 1979 film. Get the expanded edition, Alien: Isolation – The Collection, and you’ll get two missions that recreate moments from the classic film. Will you turn out to be as brave as Ripley, or will the sheer terror of the xenomorph leave you with a stomach upset?
