The sequel to one of the scariest games ever, this version is better in almost every way, the graphics are greatly enhanced, and the game has a lot more cut scenes to make it seem more like being in the movie. However the best thing about this game is that it comes with a quicksave feature, sadly lacking and brain numblingy annoying from the first game.

The game uses basically the same story as the original with you being stranded on an alien infested planet, and having to fight your way to safety. This time though there is much more emphasis on the story, with many more cut scenes, but to be honest the most fun is to be had purely exploring the Alien world and jumping out of your seat when one blasts through a wall at you.

One great feature is that you don’t see an Alien until about ten minutes into the game, so as the minutes and seconds pass your thinking, hang on shouldn’t there be..err.. Aliens in here? When BANG one flies out of no where and launches itself at your throat, this tension and dread is an unmatched masterpiece in gaming, and the run back to your crew when you do tread into that alien lair is one of gamings finest moments.

This is quite a vast game but finishing it is a lot easier than the first game due to the quicksave function, but again I didn’t really find myself playing as the Predator or Alien, I’m probably missing out on some great stuff though, so don’t just take my word for that, if you do try the game make sure to try all the scenario’s to see how you like them.

There are some great weapons in the game, the pulse rifle from the movies using exactly the same sound effect, and the flamethrowers look very cool. Again it doesn't feature actual character's from the movie but this is every inch an Aliens game, from the blip on your radar to the sound of the pulse gun this is every Alien movie fans wet dream of a video game.

It's excellent at tense, seriously that bleep on your radar indicating movement in a dark dripping corridor is truly the stuff of nightmares, and its the build up, the anticipation of whats coming that will get you, you know in certain parts that you really shouldn't go check down that dark corridor, where that grinding noise is coming from, but you will and you will scream.

This is one of the scariest video games ever made, period.

Score: 5/5
