Tense, certainly, and I jumped at more than a few surprise xenomorph encounters, but the environments and action fail to instill the sense of dread that the movies or other horror games have inflicted on fans. Despite taking more than its share of inspiration from the Alien series, I found Dead Space to be scarier than Isolation, even if playing through the genuine article is far more appealing.

It’s a shame that Isolation doesn’t track stats, because I’d be curious to know how many of its roughly 15-20 hours I spent hiding in lockers, staring at the motion tracker, and, most of all, how many hundreds of times I died without a chance to save myself. It may seem strange to complain that a game’s too long.... Someday, someone is going to make an incredible Alien video game that checks every box. But, sadly, Isolation is not it.

Luckily, none of these minor annoyances do enough to ruin this game. It is a chilling, suspenseful and downright terrifying love letter to fans of the Alien franchise. Hell, you can still get enjoyment out of Alien: Isolation if you’ve never even seen one of the movies. Its ability to create that tense feeling of utter helplessness is second to none and something we haven’t seen done this well in a long time.
