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.

I got this game to play through on my youtube channel (Xzulas) and because I've always been a huge fan of the Alien series. I asked my Subscribers what they wanted me to play video game wise during live feeds and everyone told me you have to get this game. I had fans tell me not to play this in the dark and not to wear head phones they even went as far as to tell me to lay down plastic under my chair. It was great I knew then, that I had to get this game. I had two options at the time or purchase my laptop or my sort of dying PS3. I went with my laptop and steam download purchased from Amazon, it was easy as always the game worked right away after install, the settings are simple and my xbox 360 pc controller works perfect of course.
The game is amazing, its not a 1st person shooter its a adventure horror type game kind of like the 1st resident evil which was the 1st video game to scare the crap out of me. Its got depth and a great story line it will leave you wanting to play more and YES its scary. You don't start loaded up with weapon shooting stuff this is a solid adventure horror game. I did video capture with face cam of me so if you want to see for yourself, me getting scared from this video game then check it out on my youtube channel. I play this at night, with headphones no plastic though haha.
Some of the stand out things I liked about this game are
It can display in full 1080p all the way up to 4k if you have a rig that can handle it, and let me tell you it is very impressive in 4k uhd.
Awesome game detail and breath taking cut scenes and gameplay.
Impressive use of darkness and flickering lights for a very scary feel.
Everything you would want in a aliens video game as far as sound
Very cool with headphones, it will scare you!
Very good, I haven't found a glitch yet.
Immensely immersing gameplay
Good inventory lay out and button control with the xbox 360 joy stick
Crafting of items from material collect around the ship
obtainable weapons and items
The Sound. This game is truly demanding a good pair of headphones or at least a surround sound to capture the terror. Sound cues of the Xenomorph's muffled movement through a ventilation shaft will cause you to hunker down quickly and bring up your motion tracker to figure out where the $#&%er is located.
The Graphics with good Lighting. Being a survival horror game, this is one of the key elements to setting the mood. Alien Isolation presents itself as not too dark much like Outlast, but instead provides a perfect medium shining and highlighting the mood when needed too. Throwing a Molotov cocktail or using a flame thrower on enemies is a feast for the eyes. Watching a Working Joe android continue his pursuit of you while on fire is a visual yet scary feat in this category of game development done right.
The Main AI. This can be hit or miss depending on your level of Alien fandom or survival horror immersion. I would be lying if I didn't call out "BULL#$&%!" at my monitor several times because of replaying the same segments over and over due to repeatable deaths. I actually came to terms with it due that it was entirely my fault that the Xenomorph kept catching me. Most of his(or hers?) AI is scripted to be unpredictable. Mostly, you just have to understand that no matter what you do, it will kill you if you are stupid. You have to be smart, patient, and figure out how to get from point A to Point B safely as possible.
Strange Pro: (A minor Spoiler is about to be inserted here, so skip ahead or disregard) One would think that the game would be over when you finally get rid of the monster. Surprisingly enough, the game keeps going, and I was okay with it. Part of it does feel like forced on backtracking that some reviewers have labeled. However, I felt it was needed due to the situation change of the station itself. Don't worry, it delivers reasoning that even I was surprised. It was here that I personally felt that I was receiving my money's worth.
The graphics I mentioned about, while stunning can have a few hiccups. Character lip syncing during in game dialogue will look bad. For some reason the game' cut scenes are actually dependent (or are they?) on your computer's hardware The frame rate was jarring with screen tears abundant but in game, smooth 60 frames per second. Really strange.
Already mentioned, but the game's AI literally can be a turn off for most gamers. As mentioned in the loading screen tips "the Alien is not the only threat on the Sevastopol. For some, it can be irksome because the focus should really be on the main feat of the game. The other dangers around the Sevastopol can also be unpredictable and just plain not fair. "How did he see me, or why is this person attacking me?" will come up in your mind when you are just trying to advance through the chapters and get to that desired save point. Yes, replaying segments of the game even made me angry and stressed out. But as I said, you have to think and be patient in this game. Just sprinting to that door then hiding in a locker loudly will not immediately save you from that Working Joe or xenomorph.
Other features like item crafting don't have that much thought put into it. It's merely collect stuff, add in, and then use. It's also done in real time like the Last of Us so you'll have to plan when you want to make that item to help you get out of a sticky situation. The game uses an item wheel as seen in almost anything released in consoles. It can be cumbersome and confusing in the beginning when you are just trying to heal yourself or use a revolver on a Working Joe whom you will have to just confront.
And yes, being that this is a survival horror game, there are the obligatory audio logs throughout the derelict station and computer monitors to stare at and read for clues. These include the expected diary logs of the before and during present events which honestly did nothing but serve as current video game cliche. Not even the spoken logs from the actors of the movie, Alien seemed that interesting to me. Even one that should have been a tour de force of emotional connection for the main character, just did not provide the oomph I was hoping for.
Regardless of the short comings, this game still delivered the experience I've been craving for in a beloved franchise. It's an immersive nostalgic trick that made me want to watch the film that started it all for the 100th time. This game will probably only appease to one play through. I haven't touch the survival modes that much seeing as it's honestly pointless. The campaign, while good in my opinion, is the only thing you will put time into. And clocking around 14 hours for my play through, like Bioshock, that's good in my book. I only hope that Creative Assembly plan the next entry (hopefully) carefully and base it solely to nuke the abomination that is Colonial Marines from orbit. Alien Isolation is a huge step forward and correct path for the Alien(s) franchise in video games to follow.
