Alien Isolation - XBOX 360

Hello! Tis the season again for all things spooky and gross to make it's way back into our lives. I am talking about Halloween! Usually, I post which favorite movies I watch at this time of year, but this year, I am going to do a game review... ALIEN ISOLATION.

I have always been a fan of the Alien franchise. Some movies were pretty ridiculous, but Alien and Aliens to this day are in my top 100 films of all time... and I have seen a TON of movies.

You start off as Amanda Ripley that is in search of answers to her mom's disappearance, Ellen Ripley.  Once they establish the characters and the main goal of the game, you are pretty much up and running... literally.

Some of you may be thinking, "Video game? What good is that to me? I hate games!" Well, you need to understand, that this game is INCREDIBLY scary and gross. It was the perfect thing for me to do for the Halloween season. It left me jumping out of my chair and sent my heart racing on numerous occasions during gameplay.

The length of the game was pretty long in my opinion. I kept wondering when the game was going to end. It seemed like forever at times. Not that I was bored, more like it was spooky draining. Like I was tired of getting scared all the time. I needed to keep going to find out what happened to my character(Amanda Ripley. Ellen Ripley's daughter btw), like a really good book or movie. I needed to see the end through. Yeah. I finished the game. I do not want to ruin the end, but it was pretty cool.

If you are a fan of the Alien movies, this is a must play. It brings back the Alien as scary as he ever was in the original movie. You find yourself crouching and ducking around corners as the Alien hunts you down.

I give this game a 9 out of 10. Why? Because I like good scares and it seems as though the Alien is back on the hunt in full force with this game. If you do not have a heart condition and are looking for a freaked out good game, get it. Remember to shut your lights off before you play it... Until next time... BOO!
