PS4 Review Alien: Isolation is a ripping game. While there have been plenty of Alien based games over the years, but few take the slow, suspensful road as The Creative Assembly have with this game. It's a fantastic title well worth a look.

PS4 Review Skylanders: Trap Team is, believe it or not, the first game in the franchise which we have played and reviewed.
