Alien Isolation: Play as Ripley’s Daughter in the Coldness of Space

Let’s be clear, when we’re talking about strong female characters who actually behave like women, there’s few better examples than Ellen Ripley in the movie Aliens. Here’s a woman who faced her fear and used her motherly urge to protect to save a child and destroy a monster. She’s a momma bear, protecting her young. Just wanted to show how much respect I have for that movie in particular. (not it’s sequels though, which ruined all the progress made in Aliens).

Sexuality: 1 out of 5: It doesn’t really come up, though there are some families mentioned that fled the station, romance isn’t really mentioned.

Speaking of sex..yeah, you know what’s coming.

Gender:  2 out of 5: Amanda Ripley is the main character, and she acts like a normal person, not a superwoman. She’s smart, clever, and resourceful, like her mother, but if she runs into the Alien, she’s dead.

Race: 1 out of 5: The races of characters isn’t really a focus of the game.

He pops up everywhere but he’s surprisingly bad at looking for Amanda under desks and tables.

Anachronism: 0 out of 5: Sci-Fi so doesn’t apply.

Overall: 4 out of 20: A good, apolitical sci-fi horror game. I’m usually not a big fan of horror games but this one I actually finished!
