Discover the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation, a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. Fifteen years after the events of Alien™, Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda enters a desperate battle for survival, on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother's disappearance.
As Amanda, you will navigate through an increasingly volatile world as you find yourself confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien.
Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive.
Overcome an ever-present deadly threat – Experience persistent fear as a truly dynamic and reactive Alien uses its senses to hunt you down and respond to your every move.
Improvise to survive – Hack systems, scavenge for vital resources and craft items to deal with each situation. Will you evade your enemies, distract them or face them head on?
Explore a world of mystery and betrayal – Immerse yourself in the detailed setting of Sevastopol, a decommissioned trading station on the fringes of space. Encounter a rich cast of inhabitants in a world scarred by fear and mistrust.
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.

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.

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.
Surprise of the yearSharptap | Dec. 19, 2014 | See all Sharptap's reviews »
I'll be honest. I wasnt expecting much of this game. I've always been a big fan of horror movies, and of course, i love the Alien franchise. Till now, all the games concerning this franchise werent anything special, especially the last one, Colonial Marines, which was awful. When i first saw the announcement for the game, i was skeptical. But i ended up buying it, because well, i really love the Alien universe. I was mesmerized. Everything about this game is perfect. The graphics, the atmosphere, the gameplay. I cant hate a single thing about it. For me, it's GOTY. Finally, a game that does justice to this amazing franchise. Must Buy!
Incredibly scary, fun and challenging.LautaroCompleX | Dec. 4, 2014 | See all LautaroCompleX's reviews »
If you've watched any of the Alien movies and you enjoy them, or if you enjoy horror games and/or sci fi as a genre, this is your game. It's very loyal to the Alien movies, so loyal that you can feel as if you were pleasing your inner geek giving them the answers to every question about the movies' plot. It is also extremely scary and challenging, so you're in for a ride if you enjoy a tough game (taking into consideration that you'll also most likely be panicking during the majority of the challenge) It's just a solid, nice game. If you like sci fi and you can handle horror quite well, I'd consider getting this piece soon. If on top of that, you are an Alien fan (or just someone who liked the movies) just go get it RIGHT NOW. And if you're like me, someone who casually enjoys sci fi, isn't quite the best handling horror and didn't even watch the movies, hear me well: you'll shockingly like this game. Maybe it'll be hard on your heart, but trust me, you'll end up watching the movies and beginning a new era of your geek life.
Intelligent and unforgiving sci-fi scares.naom_1 | Nov. 26, 2014 | See all naom_1's reviews »
While a bold and daring move from a developer most well-known for strategy games, this was truly a pleasant surprise after previous Alien titles had failed to capture the spirit of Ridley Scott's 1979 classic. From the retro-futuristic visual design to the nail-biting cat-and-mouse chases around the Sevastapol space station's claustrophobic vents and corridors, 'Isolation' feels every inch the game fans of the franchise deserve.
Although the ruthlessly unpredictable AI of the titular monster can be frequently punishing, especially on harder difficulty settings, this only adds to the tension as you're forced to think on your feet while using your environment and numerous craftable tools to your advantage. The game may feel unnecessarily long to some but manages to maintain a pretty consistent pace through its 15-25 hours of gameplay, and with plenty of collectable tags and audio logs to hunt down completionists won't be left disappointed.
Combining some of the best atmospheric elements of recent hits such as Dead Space and Outlast with an impressive faithfulness to its cinematic inspiration, Isolation is a polished and unsettling love letter to good old-fashioned survival horror.
