Virtually every 'Alien' game ever made has been terrible - and the most recent one was among the worst offenders. So it has been something of a shock to discover at this year's E3 that the new reboot, Alien: Isolation, looks utterly brilliant.

And terrifying.

Here you're no assault rifle-toting maniac -- you're a weak, very human target of both the alien in question, and your human enemies too.

We've gathered the 6 best gameplay videos from E3 to give you a flavour of how the game might play out once it's released on 7 October for current and next-gen consoles.
