Stealth gaming isn't usually my thing. I personally like a right good run and gun action game, which is why playing Alien Isolation and rating it as one of my best played games of the past 12 months absolutely shocked me.

When we reviewed Alien: Isolation we gave it a well deserved 8/10 with Matt describing it as the most terrifying game he has played:
I've been scared by games before. Silent Hill 2 is hands-down the creepiest game I've ever played. I love/hate the way that game messed with my head, the grotesque carnival of misshapen enemies, distended and crooked, that triggered genuine revulsion. They weren't just zombies, they were hideous apparitions that made me feel physically ill. Elsewhere, there were moments when games like Condemned and Dead Space and Fatal Frame and even Doom 3 made me jump and weirded me out.
But nothing has ever quite terrified me like Alien: Isolation.
