Good episode? Give it some love!
Welcome back to Horror Week on the Never Ending Backlog podcast. Today we are reviewing a game that was a recent bundle purchase, and one that we have been extremely excited to play. We have heard great things about today's game. Is the suspense killing you? Well if you read the title, then you know today's review is none other than the Horror/FPS, Alien: Isolation.

Steam Description:
Discover the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation, a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. Fifteen years after the events of Alien™, Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda enters a desperate battle for survival, on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother's disappearance.

We have a confession to make though... it's highly possible we have never seen any of the original Alien movies. We've seen Prometheus, plus the newer one, and the Predator movies; plus the AVP movies; however, we cannot for the life of us remember if we've seen the original Alien trilogy (which likely means we haven't). We know the plot, and the general premise; however, we will eventually watch them, to do this game justice.

Until then though, let's review a new game in our backlog!
