HOW WILL YOU SURVIVE?
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.

So. Why am I giving it five stars? Simple - it's the most realistic, brain-explodingly detailed and accurate Alien franchise product ever produced that wasn't an actual movie and even then, as an experience, above all the films save the original ALIEN and ALIENS in terms of sheer production quality, scripting and canon loyalty. The BUTTON symbols were painstakingly researched and replicated. BUTTONS. SYMBOLS ON BUTTONS. And everything else from that level of minutiae up to the design, naming and concept of the Sevastopol station are simply outstanding and worshipful of original designs in execution. Ron Cobb, Chris Foss, Moebius, Giger... All their work and visualization is executed here with love and painstaking detail.
What's more, the game runs surprisingly well on mid spec machines. And I mean GREAT. That shows a ton of effort went in to optimizing code and the way the environment textures, models and effects clip (I have a few games under my belt, myself).
The characters, the atmosphere, all of it. Just stunning. And yes, your heart is going to be racing at times, and you'll die. Over and over. Although CA recently revamped the difficulty modes, and I have yet to give the game a proper go with the 'smarter easier' and harder settings. Yes, you have to hunt for save points. That's how the game works. If you want to be able to save your game at any time, this isn't for you. No sense crying over what you can't change, because it'd be an entirely different and dare I say less noteworthy and tension-inducing nightmare experience if they did it any other way.
If you like Alien even a little and have the guts to go up against a truly startling, scary and sometimes depressing and frustrating opponent, ALIEN ISOLATION was made for you. A pants-wetting, heart-palpitating love letter from these developers to everyone that made ALIEN the work of art it was.
Make no mistake, this game is hardcore. It's difficult, anxiety-inducing and exciting. It also simply drips with atmosphere. I've never come across another game that creates a true sense of place like this one does. It begins to feel almost real at times.
The amazing atmosphere comes down to two things: the awesome sound design and the incredible graphics. I have to say that this is the best looking game I have played so far. I am playing it on the PC and it looks absolutely incredible. Yes, even better than Crysis 3, in my opinion. At least if you are comparing the interiors of Crysis 3 to these interiors.
What's amazing, though, is not only does this game look astonishingly good, it also runs very well. I am able to max out every setting and run the game at 2560 x 1400 resolution and still maintain 60fps at all times. In other words, this game is extremely well optimized. The developers did a fantastic job with the PC version.
This game is probably one of the most unique games I have played in terms of the gameplay and the creature AI. It feels fresh and very enjoyable. But it will scare you and stress you out at times. All in all it is an incredible ride.
Alien:Isolation's most redeeming quality is its atmosphere. This is without a doubt the scariest video game I have ever played. Years ago I bought Doom 3 in hopes of being legitimately scared while gaming. Doom 3 was nerve-racking at times, but I always found myself comforted by the fact that if anything came at me, I could fill it with lead, plasma, or the teeth of a chainsaw. Alien: Isolation provides no such comfort, which is what makes it so fantastic. Another difference is the way in which the game affects you. Doom 3 achieves its scariness via dismembered corpses, splattered viscera and gore, flickering lights, evil laughs, and enemies that spawn right in front of your face. Alien: Isolation has a much more psychological effect, one that fills you with a cold, palpable sense of dread that makes it difficult to leave your "in-game cabinet" to creep for the next door handle.
Playing this game in a dark room with earphones, without a "walk-through" and a real desire to be filled with terror and apprehension (as twisted as that may seem) will immerse you in a world unlike any you have experienced. Within the first 60 minutes of playing this, I found myself clenching my teeth in fear, inhaling deeply before entering each new room. Unlike during a horror movie, you are in control, and you must react to the sudden noises from around the corner, the horrifying shrieks of an unknown entity, or the shadowy menace smashing towards you.
To cut to the chase, I love everything about this game. All of its components make it one of the most amazing PC games in a while. The product itself is flawless. I'm running a single GTX 760 at 1080p with flawless framerate and zero crashes during my first entire playthrough. If you are in for a highly entertaining scare, I strongly recommend that you purchase this game.
