Alienation – Game Review: “A toast, to the end of the world.”

At first glance, Alienation might look like a number of any other twin-stick shooters on the console, but it’s a bit deeper than it first appears. The game’s creators Housemarque are known for their stellar work on Super Stardust HD and Resogun, and I’m pleased to say that they bring the same degree of quality to Alienation.

Alienation might seem similar to Arrowhead’s Helldivers—but aside from belonging to the same genre, the similarities end there. Where Helldivers is brutal and unforgiving with its friendly-fire, with randomized maps, Alienation is a much more straightforward experience with Diablo-inspired action RPG mechanics.
