Housemarque's previous games have always kept me coming back through the strength of their gameplay alone. Alienation adds a straightforward, but enjoyable power chase on top, making its finely tuned arcade action all the more alluring. Its action-RPG elements won't make it a replacement for something like Diablo 3 or Grim Dawn, but they successfully provide a structure for unending, enjoyable alien slaughter.

Housemarque's latest offers brilliant loot and levelling, but it's the moment-to-moment action that truly excels.

The world won't stick with you, but beautiful visuals and excellent twin-stick looting make this a co-op blast…once you figure out what you're doing. You could get lost for weeks in its end-game content, but only the most obsessive will care about climbing Alienation's leaderboards.

A disappointingly bland top-down shooter, that while entertaining enough with friends lacks the finely tuned splendour of Stardust and Resogun.
