No Fridge mentions on Main or YMMV pages. It's not a trope.
* FridgeBrilliance/ FridgeHorror: Throughout the game, the Alien seems to show up all over the place, even somehow appearing in a completely different area in a short amount of time. Some might think TheComputerIsACheatingBastard or OffscreenTeleportation, but then you discover later on [[spoiler:that an entire ''hive'' of Xenomorphs is being bred in the station's reactor]].

** Everything in the game also seems hard-pressed to slow down Amanda's progress. Even something as simple as opening a door can be dragged out to five minutes due to the power going out and having to find the generator to start it up again. But perhaps one of the most annoying and grueling moments has to be [[spoiler: When a Xenomorph abducts Amanda just as she's about to escape Sevastopol on the maintenance rig and then takes her to be cocooned in its nest. Cue twenty or so minutes of backtracking back to the airlock while dealing with every Facehugger and Xenomorph still left on the station. And all of this happens while the station's on the verge of falling apart.]]

* GoddamnedBats: [[spoiler:Facehuggers]] in the late game. They only take a single burst of flame to kill, but they hide under boxes perfectly still so you don't know they're there, only attack when you're very close, kill you instantly if they connect, and on death emit a squeal which gets the Alien's attention.

What's even worse is that they can sometimes come after you while you're in a crawlspace where melee weapons can't be used, forcing you to waste precious ammo.

* AssPull: In a cruel twist of GameplayAndStorySegregation, [[spoiler:The Xenomorphs in the Alien Hive are as nigh-invulnerable as the first one encountered in the game. On its own, that's understandable, but by the time you get there, you already have more powerful weapons like the Shotgun and Bolt Gun. The former is notable for being used at one point in the movies to ''blast an Alien's head apart'', while the latter could one-shot the otherwise MadeOfIron Working Joes which are arguably just as durable as any Xenomorph.]]

** [[spoiler:Alien Hive. Remember how tough the first Xenomorph was? Imagine a whole nest of them, with ConservationOfNinjitsu subverted like crazy, and Facehuggers every which way. And what's more is that even though you'll have even stronger weapons by this point like the Bolt Gun and Shotgun, the most they can do to the Xenomorphs is ''stun'' them]].

* BestLevelEver: Arguably one of the later levels, [[spoiler: the hive. After several levels of the game basically being Android Isolation, Amanda has to fight her way through an Alien hive, which has multiple Aliens ''and'' facehuggers.]] It almost feels like the whole game was building up to this one area.

* HesJustHiding: There are quite a few fans who believe it possible that [[spoiler:Samuels may have a chance at survival - given that he's a synthetic, he could potentially be fixed by other survivors on the station.]] Indeed, there are several [[FixFic fanfics featuring this as a premise]].

Added DiffLines:
** [[spoiler:Samuels']] HeroicSacrifice. Unlike the deaths of [[SurprisinglySuddenDeath almost every other named character in the game]], he gets the chance to share some poignant last moments with Ripley as [[spoiler: he slowly stops functioning, and simply explains that [[MeaningfulEcho he wanted her to have closure]] as his reasoning for his sacrifice.]]

* BreatherLevel: [[spoiler:Marlow's playable flashback to the ''Anesidora'' crew's discovery of the derelict ship on LV-426]] is nothing but exploration and references to the first film, and is generally a welcome break from the tense, cat-and-mouse stealth action of the rest of the game.
