The game itself is amazing. The gameplay is a bit less. Sure, it's a horror game, but there are a LOT of puzzles in it that you are required to complete to continue. The alien is a constant threat, and gives the game most of the "horror" mood, but for all the time spent on it, it still has a few bugs. Even so, I would recommend this game to anyone who wants the feeling of being hunted. Even after I stop playing this game, I still look over my shoulder constantly. The graphics in this are top-notch, and the soundtrack.... Unbelievable. The music is incredible, and the sounds of the alien will make me jump even in the real world. My only complaint is the save system. You are required to manually save at certain checkpoints, and there isn't a quick-save system for when you get off. I get the feeling of tension that it delivers, but it has been a constant source of frustration for me. Other than that, this game is perfect. 95/100.
Alien: Isolation is outstanding and scary good!
Alien: Isolation is the best, outstanding and scariest video game to play on Xbox 360, graphics, gameplay and sound is unbelievable perfect, I give Alien: Isolation a perfect 10 out of a 10!
Can't wait for this game!!!!!
From what I have seen so far, Alien: Isolation looks very promising. People are afraid it's going to be as bad as Colonial Marines, which I enjoyed, but this game is going to be on a completely different level. I loved the movie and games like this just add to the thrill. I can't wait for what story they are going to tell. It's going to be an amazing survival horror game!!!!!
I Love this game is the Best. Really Scary and Fun
I think you should get this game it is really fun and scary. The sound is excellent 10, Graphics are great 9, the lasting appeal is good 8, and gameplay is excellent as well 10. This game would be for anyone to go likes scary but fun horror experience. Get this game !!!!

Gaming War with Outlast & Slender the Arrival.
The game is overall amazing and spectacular, has great sound, graphics, last appealing and gameplay. 10/10!!! Though I do realise this is going to become a horror blockbuster that can go to a gaming war with outlast and I'll explain why. Outlast, Slender The Arrival and Alien Isolation take place in different locations that are stranded but what makes Alien Isolation scarier is that everyone is killed and your in space. Outlast and Slender takes place in the present. Future vs Present, future will be much more scarier.
Got through the first mission only (I had work in the morning). The game is awesome. Some notes to players: There are some bugs/glitches. Also, I don't know if this is just because I'm on the 360 or not, but make sure the brightness is turned UP when you set it up. I played the first mission in practically darkness thinking that's what it was supposed to look like. I turned it up in game and what do you know?! I saw people I didn't even know were there! haha.... but the game looks real promising.
scariest game yet of 2014!!!!!
I love this game it reminds me a lot like outlast (great game too). If you love horror and jump scares your love this game the looting mechanic is great and stealth is awesome and important in the game even though only certain saves are in the game i found it makes the game even more scarier overall i recommend this to alien lovers and horror lovers.(can't wait for the evil within next):)
games gonna be awsome
I pre ordered alien isolation hoping ill be Awsome I trust Sega to restore the game don't fail me cant wait to try it
Some horror plenty of Action
This game rules best aliens game in a while but there are some major problems. When you get around to seeing the alien for it to finally start chasing you it only lasts for about an hour after that your minutes of getting scared are over because of the heavily OP flame thrower when you get this weapon it makes the game to easy one burst and the alien runs and hides now I know what your thinking "Ammo is so low in the game it would run out to soon" not true Flame ammo is everywhere and you start of with 1000 flame percentage. Two squirts of flame takes about 10 out of it each flame canister you find adds fifty by the time you hit the end of the game your flamethrower will have 7 fuel left and you don't have to search that much heck I probably missed 3 canisters in the final area as soon as you get the flame thrower the alien is your pet cat that you spray with water every time it does something bad the androids are more creepy than the aliens you could be in a dark corridor then you hear hissing you see the alien two squirts it screeches runs away and you have 3-8 minutes before it comes back with a chance of it leaving for good. Then you see 8 sets of glowing red eyes slowly coming words you saying "Oh is that a weapon I need to look into this" or "Calm down your being hysterical" Androids can be killed but I guarantee unless you have the shotgun you will be choked and slammed against walls 70% of the time since they are Flame retardant and it takes 5 magnum shot to kill then and when they get armored it takes everything know on to humans they are to easy just shoot a gun hide and the alien shows up clearing the room then spray him with fire and he's gone the game is pretty linear unless backtracking sounds fun and the ending oh boy the ending *SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER YOU ARE TOTTALY WARNED THIS GAME HAS A GREAT STORY BUT STILL SPOILER IS SPOILER* At the end when you blow the docking clamps and return to the Torrens and Ripley does not take off her EVA suit and heads to the bridge Verlaine is not talking as you call her on coms as you open the door to the bridge a Xenomorph is standing there staring at you. You crawl backwards into an airlock open the hatch and you and the Xeno are now in deep space as you see Amanda their she is still breathing but unconscious a ship light shines on her face and cuts to black I didn't complete the game o hard I did it on normal so possible secret ending but that's it but overall a good game defiantly buy but don't expect to make a new game regularly since their is no change at all its more of a one time thing for me maybe some hunting for collectibles or checking out death animations but a few things that would have made this game way better like co-op I like ditching my friend to distract the Raven in CM and I wanted to have a meat shield since this whole game you travel alone also a Human vs Alien mode your friend has the sight of the Alien cant see well and wanders around trough vents hunting you down as you sneak past and complete an objective and some more playable characters in campaign or at least a different story because the ending mad me need more closure than Amanda wanting to know about her mother other than that 7/10 the first few hours notice every noise to show the alien is coming but later in the game while welding a door you hear him drop from a vent behind you so you stop welding burn him a bit and start welding again and vents blow the alien will murder you in a vent if you bun him he will trample over you trying to get out and you lose half your health same outside but with a smaller chance but one of the better games of 2014 indeed if only more scary would it get a higher rating so I might revisit this game later. (So sorry for the long read just got so into my first review)
