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.

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.

First off, the game DOES take a bit to get going. Depending on the type of player you are, it could take up to an hour to really get into the nitty gritty Alien action. This might push people away, but I urge you to stick through. If you are a fan of survival horror, I think you will enjoy this. If you are a fan of Alien, this is finally a game to do the franchise justice. The crafting system isn't amazing, but it does it's job, and I'm sure most will get used to it. The save system is something many complain about, and I think at times this is justified. It can get frustrating to have to replay a fairly long section of the game because you made a tiny mistake that caused you to get killed. This also is kind of a good thing, as it makes you careful about your decisions. The story can drag a bit, and the game is around 14-20 hours long, depending on how you play, but I'd say it is worth it in the end. Great game.

Like stepping right into one of the origin Alien franchise movies, the textures used on walls and floor panels look identical to those in the movies.
I've thrown about fifteen hours into the game and I find that it's enjoyable to replay, however once you get the flamethrower it becomes very easy.
Aside from a few scripted scenes, when you use the flamethrower it sends the xenomorph scurrying away.
Aside from the overpowered anti alien weaponry, I give it a solid 7.5/10
