New, 4 comments

Death comes very, very swiftly in Alien: Isolation, most frequently — but not always — in the form of an eight-foot-tall extraterrestrial killing machine. Your fragile mortality, combined with that killing machine's proclivity for hiding in walls, vents and ceilings, is enough to make you afraid of every sound in earshot, from the rattling of an overhead air duct, to the hum of smooth jazz from a space-age boom box. You know that the alien probably isn't in the boom box, but can you be absolutely sure?

Check out the Overview above to see how, for a few hours at least, Alien: Isolation makes you afraid of absolutely everything.
