Now that Alien: Blackout has been out for a few days now, I just wanted to get a summary post up of some of the reviews that have come in for the game. Reception to Alien: Blackout from review outlets has largely been positive/mixed.
Many have praised Alien: Blackout for it’s sound design and its graphics, with particular emphasise on the visual continuity with Alien and Alien: Isolation, as well as it’s ability to create that “Alien” feeling on the mobile platform.
The game is also being criticised for its short length and repetitive game-play. The topic of it’s difficulty is also being brought up but that seems to divisive matter with some loving it and some disliking it. As of writing, Alien: Blackout currently sits at 72 on Metacritic.
