Honestly, I was a bit skeptic when this game was announced. I don’t mind mobile games, but sometimes developers don’t make the difference and the game can easily fail to fulfill the expectations. However, in this case, developers knew what they were doing and did it in the best possible way that was respectful to the Alien franchise and its fans.
Alien: Blackout successfully follows the Five Nights at Freddy’s formula with an authentic Alien style, complete with surprisingly well-done voice acting and xenomorph animations when things go wrong. However, once you’ve learned the ropes and figured out how to exploit the alien’s AI it becomes much less interesting, and there’s no reason to revisit it.
Alien: Blackout is both too familiar and too inconsistent to successfully capture the spirit of what made Alien so good. Ultimately, this game feels like an expensive-looking Five Nights at Freddy’s with a Xenomorph that can’t decide whether it wants to be a preternatural stalker or meandering doofus. You can have moments spine-tingly suspense with Alien: Blackout, but a lot of the time they’re undercut by random mishaps.
