One of the best horror games I've played. They stayed true to the source material and built upon its themes, and executed it flawlessly. The alien is genuinely terrifying because of how real its unpredictability makes it! You get truly immersed due to the wonderful atmosphere and realistic graphics. This game was a ride, that's for sure!
This game truly captures the feeling and horror atmosphere of the original movie. Sound and graphic design is completely on point. Alien feels like a "smart" enemy, they did really great job with its AI. The game contains fairly simple but functional crafting system. The length might be con for some people, also I did encounter few minor cosmetic bugs, but nothing that would truly lower my enjoyment.
They have perfectly captured the look of the original movie and have really gone all out in creating an authentic alien experience. Everything from the grained perspective to the drinking birds, This game just bleeds nostalgia. The Alien itself is simply terrifying, the sound of it storming through the hallways of the sevastopol and the fluid movements really evokes fear into the player making you feel completely helpless and on edge. Encounters with the alien are mostly unscripted, Anything from firing off a shotgun to kicking a piece of trash can alert the alien to your position. The Alien will explore the enviroments in a dominant manner, it really lets you know this is no longer a place for humans. This is its turf now, And it doesnt take kindly to guests. You can avoid contact with the creature by using the Motion scanner which gives you a whereabout of the Aliens position, and by hiding away. For the most part being caught out in the open by the alien ends in death, But with the flamethrower you can scare it away for another chance at survival. For me this feature felt like a cheap cheat button for when I messed up, But the flamer fuel depletes very quickly and you only receive the weapon around the second half so its justifiable. The combat in the game feels unnecessary at times, but is a welcome feature. Ammo is very scarce and new weapons are given to the player as the campaign progresses. The enemies range from other humans to deranged androids which can get quite repetitive to fight as they dont face a real challenge, they just use up your resources. (Although both the Androids and the Humans can be beaten with stealth) The game also has a crafting system which allows you to collect scraps along your journey across the sevastopol, and craft them into makeshift devices to help you along the way. These range from noise emitters and smoke screens to create distractions, to pipe bombs and molotovs that will deal some damage. Although for the most part I was constantly full on supplies during my playthrough of the campaign the crafting system is a great feature and adds some depth to the game.
The best Aliens game that i have played. Story is so immersive and tense, it gave me chills in spine at many points in the game. Mechanics are good. AI level increases with increasing difficulty. Alien is fast as f****. Don't even try running in this game because the sound will attract Alien and it will get to you in split second! Seegson synthetics are a pain in the a** too. I completed this game in 10 hours on normal difficulty. Not to forget graphics are good and looks realistic on high settings. Get the season pass which includes other DLCS which are worth playing. 100% Recommended from my side.
This game is slow paced horror at its finest. A true tribute to Ridley Scott's masterpiece. It's a great looking game that performs brilliantly. The voice acting is consistently good, and the writing is excellent. Honestly, the lack of a jump function, and the over-reliance on cutscenes and minimal interactivity in some sections are the only two problems I have with this game. The initial slow pace, for me, sets the tone far better than balls out action all the time.
