Alien: Isolation and Skylanders: Trap Team arrive on Xbox this week

Alien Isolation Alien 1

Microsoft's consoles receive the survival horror of Alien: Isolation this week, as well as NBA 2K15, Project Spark, and more.

Last week was a good week for big Xbox releases with the likes of Forza Horizon 2 and Middle-earth Shadow of Mordor making their debuts - our reviews of both will be up on the site in the coming weeks. They also moved straight into the charts taking the number two and three positions right behind EA Sport's FIFA 15.

This week we've got some other much-anticipated releases in the guise of Sega and Creative Assembly's survival horror - Alien: Isolation - and also the sequel to Double Fine's 2010 release Costume Quest - Costume Quest 2.

The fourth instalment to the Skylander series arrives this week also - Skylanders: Trap Team - and Microsoft Studios' Project Spark comes out of its almost year-long beta too.
