The lights are on
Like a nest of xenomorph eggs being eradicated, fans of the Aliens franchise have been burned. Alien: Colonial Marines failed spectacularly to live up to expectations, leaving gamers with shaky trust in developers' ability to transpose the onscreen tension into a worthwhile game. Creative Assembly is up next for the Aliens franchise with Alien: Isolation. It taps into the atmospheric horror of Ridley Scott's Alien more than the tense action of James Cameron's Aliens. Game Informer editor Jeff Cork and I discuss our hands-on impressions of being hunted by a murderous xenomorph and how we emerged with restored faith in the franchise.
Jeff Cork and I reflect on the stress of being hunted by an angry alien, the gorgeous next-gen visuals, and the potential of Creative Assembly's new game.
