    Hit and miss

    Alien Isolation is bar far the best game to use the Alien license, it hits the most important aspects such as design and atmosphere but misses the gameplay and partially the story. The design and atmosphere of isolat... Read Full Review

    Could have been a lot better

    Audio:Fantastic voice acting by the cast and the sound track really helps set the mood perfectly.Visuals:I'd say the worst part of the game. The cut scenes lack the quality you'd expect for an Xbox One game. The rest of ... Read Full Review
