When she left Earth, Ellen Ripley promised her daughter Amanda she would return home for her 11th birthday. Amanda never saw her again.
Fifteen years later, Amanda, now a Weyland-Yutani employee, hears that the flight recorder of her mother’s ship, the Nostromo, has been recovered at the remote trading station Sevastopol. The temptation for her to finally understand what happened is too much to resist. When the crew arrive at Sevastopol, they find something is desperately wrong. It all seems to be connected to an unknown menace, stalking and killing deep in the shadows.
In order to uncover the truth about her mother, Amanda is forced to confront the same terrifying thing that separated them.
Beatifully Made Game of Fear, Stealth, and SkillLaughingpoker | Feb. 21, 2015 | See all Laughingpoker's reviews »
Alien:Isolation, in one sentence, is a game which perfectly combines the elements of stealth, fear and skill all in one. This game is so successful that it instills a feeling of constant fear and tension throughout your entire play-through. At every instance and hostile encounter with an enemy, your ability to strategically and tactfully navigate is tested against the overwhelming hostility and deadliness of enemies. In this game, there is one big hunter, lower hunters, yet lower hunters, and then there's you, at the bottom. You can run, you can hide, but you always have to keep moving and keep out of sight. In Alien:Isolation, you are completely alone and this game does an amazing job at reminding you of that every second. This game is a must buy!!!
The best game of my life.garocco | Feb. 10, 2015 | See all garocco's reviews »
Alien Isolation is an almost perfect game. Almost perfect for Survival Horror fans and perfect for fans of the title character, especially the first movie: Alien (1979). Betting on a well-developed plot, great suspense and terrifying situations, the game looks well understand their primary source. Floating next to the huge KG-348 gas planet, the huge base of Sevastopol is a totally decadent site as well as the Corporation itself Seegson the commands. His Synthetics are much cheaper and simpler than the Weyland Yutani, just being workers without emotion. Furthermore, the APOLLO system which controls all within the season are not reliable. This all serves as a great - and even renewed for the franchise - Input idea. Release the title character in there and you will have chaos. The station of Sevastopol sometimes resembles a Rapture in outer space: It's dark, dirty, and terrifying in all directions. Many systems are turned off or crash, and one of the game is to watch these pros gadgets being reconnected. In fact, the animation of the strong protagonist Amanda Ripley stirring those machines is amazing. The imaginary futuristic technology of the late 70 closes more than perfectly here, remembering again the dark and stunning climate futuristic Rapture '40s masterpiece in 2007 BioShock. Gradually you will recognize places for which has passed, and taking advantage of that to get through the new problems. The scenarios here are not disposable after a mission, they appear again in new missions and sometimes slightly or greatly changed. If the station itself alone already causes chills, then imagine the Alien. One almost suffers a heart attack to observe it at first. And this takes to happen, like any good product Terror. Hide and escape the Alien is very frightening: Pussy is smart, super fast, listen well, and best of all ... their movements are not pre-determined, that is, he hunts his prey according to the movements and noises it. Also the alien is VERY well excited. Despite the excellent script for the situations that the game in the delivery, it has a few small holes as what happens in humans groups. They are armed to fight the threat coming from the pipes, but the sights Amanda does not have any pity. It seems they are not fully rational, thinking only of killing. What worked in BioShock (because of plasmids leave the crazy people) here does not work very well. The idea does not stick. Occasional bugs and hinder a little play as the very breath of Ripley and the disappearance of the button to enter / exit of some open air ducts, but none of this is very relevant. The sound is creating all weather, and should be commended: Creaking noises and weird at the base; dripping somewhere; the heavy footsteps of the Alien or even the noise coming from the back of his throat; the panting of Ripley; the sounds of the world around you when you are inside a space suit; It's all very well done. The conclusion is that Alien Isolation is strong enough to be the Final game of the franchise.
Best game ever!andreacdc98 | Feb. 5, 2015 | See all andreacdc98's reviews »
Alien Isolation is one of the best games I have ever played in my life! The gameplay overall is excellent and so is the story behind the game. This game is a survival kind and the enemys are aliens, which are extremelly hard to defeat. This was one of the best rated games in 2014 and after I finisged it, I knew why. The graphics are extremelly good and it has almost no bugs. I think the only problem is the keyboard and mouse support, but if you have a XBOX controller, you can't go wrong with it. I would recommend it to all my friends because it is the kind of game everyone would enjoy!
FEAR THIS!!!!m4k4v3l1 | Jan. 22, 2015 | See all m4k4v3l1's reviews »
Do you remember the first Aliens vs Predator pc game from Rebellion? It was about 17 years ago, but I can feel right now the fear of being a marine commando lost without nearly any chance to survive. Well, in Alien Isolation they have recreated that atmosphere, the atmosphere of 1979's Ridley Scott movie, the main figure of Ripley. I say: WOW! I expected this after years of crappy games. The game is long, about 15 hours for me, and intense. You'll probably will do a second run at an harder level of difficulty but beware: it will be not a joke.
Gripping and expertly crafted.chiv | Jan. 13, 2015 | See all chiv's reviews »
I should probably start by admitting I am a huge alien fan-boy. Good, now that we've got that out of the way; THIS GAME IS FANTASTIC! The Alien game we've deserved for SO LONG but no developer had been able to deliver. The graphics in this are beautiful, especially the visual aesthetics ripped right out of the world of the first movie. The technology all seems run-down, really reinforcing the idea that in this future, there is nothing that can save you but you. Technology wont get you out of this terror, like it always does in every other sci-fi story. This is a bleak universe, and that is what really sets it apart from so many others. The story is intriguing but not quite as satisfying as one would hope; instead it is the space station Sevastopol that is the real star here. It reeks of history, and every step you take, every audio log you hear, every computer entry you discover, you feel more and more immersed in this living world that is taking its last dying breaths.
The game-play is really enjoyable; the Alien is a tough enemy, but the game gives you plenty of tools to help you survive, and there is a real thrill to sneaking through the environment and trying to achieve goals. Some have complained of the game quickly becoming repetitive, but perhaps that is because you get out what you put in - I enjoyed immersing myself in the game world, and coming back to locations or having the game-play stretched out really gave me a sense of being in a realistic and consistent environment. I was never bored.
This game is a thriller, and I heartily recommend it.
