With 32k dislikes to only 1.1k positive likes on YouTube, Alien: Blackout has earned pretty decent user reviews on the Apple App Store and Google Play. As of this post, the horror survival game has not earned enough reviews on the App Store to receive an overall rating, but it has earned a 4.1 rating on Google Play. This is a much better outcome than expected after the the initial reaction to the trailer which saw the game shoot to 27k dislikes in only 3 days.
It was announced last year that FoxNext Games was working on a new shooter based on the popular Alien franchise. Fans were heavily disappointed by Gearbox's Aliens: Colonial Marines released in 2013, and not everyone was happy with the stealth game Alien: Isolation. This is why gamers were excited when 20th Century Fox filed for a gaming trademark for Alien: Blackout in November.
