Trivia

Prolific comic book writer Warren Ellis was involved in the early stages of production, and some of the concepts from this game - like the planet-cracking - seem to be typical of his stories, which often involve fictional but plausible science. See more »

Scary, bloody and kind of sad...
7 February 2009 | by TalleballeSee all my reviews

Taking the good parts from various different movies and games this survival horror/action game really managed to surprise me. I expected a game with gore and some cheap scares. I got that. But I also got a game so filled with atmosphere, I don't think there were many of last years games that can compare. The derelict ship, automated voices, flickering lights, the audio logs, the necromorphs and the few, crazed survivors really draws you in. And there is also the sense of despair, the sense that you are fighting with less and less chance of survival. All in all, the game doesn't do anything new, but it does it really well making it a pleasurable experience.
