At first the game started out kinda slow I was getting worried I had wasted 60 bucks. Now I feel if I were really on this ship I'd be hiding in a corner peeing myself. I love this game.
Scary Is The New Craze For Me
In my opinion, I think that gamers today are dying for a good scary game and this might be the one to really kick off the new gen. Looking at these other reviewers I've only become concerned at the hit/miss factor considering many have bought every alien title previous to this one. With all of that being said, this will be my first alien game in the series. From what I've seen in the previews the actual work put behind it from a gamers perspective, this game is looking like it will be not only scary, but fun because it IS scary. Just do not cheat and leave the brightness of the screen up to really enjoy the game. Leave the lights off and get those headsets out to really hear and feel the sounds as they ripple through you while you creep around trying not to die (though I am certain you will haha). Between this and Evil Within both releasing very close to each other, I personally have grown more to these scary type games that are scary to play first time and on hard difficulty rather than something as lame as the newest first person multiplayer shooter aka Call of Duty. I plan on getting both and streaming them live too because who doesn't want to see a grown man jump over being frightened?
It is about time!
I've only played the game for about six to seven hours (xboxone), so I can only give you my opinion, so far. My first impressions of the game so far is great! The game captures the atmosphere of the first alien movie. The sound is perfect, on certain areas I felt unnerved by the thought of what might be coming. This is not an action or FPS game, it is, so far, a survival horror, so don't expect to run though this game. I have the Kinect on, controlling my head movements while I'm hiding or leaning, which surprisingly adds to the suspense. I did turn the Kinect sound option off, this lets the sound in the room effect the game. I don't want to give away details, but if you are a fan of the movie alien, you won't be disappointed, as of yet, I'm not. My recommendations are to be in a quiet dark room to play this game.
Another alien letdown
I don't get why game makers can't get the alien franchise right! It seems every attempt fails in one way or another. As for this latest entry it falls flat in many ways. First the graphics are just plain ordinary, definitely not up to par with a next gen game. Next the game play is clunky. The character moves like she is in quicksand and the weapons are not smooth and easy to handle. Last I found it very frustrating that an alien game features long stretches with no aliens! The very first hour or so of the game you never even see an alien. I'm all for building up the suspense but come on. Bottom line I played for about 3 hours and gave up. Boring, repetitive and extremely slow paced. It is in no way a shooter but rather a crouch and hide game. A waste of money at full price. I would pass on buying it completely but at minimum wait for the price to go way down.
I totally forgot I had this game. I bought a bunch of games around the same time and forgot I had this. This game is awesome. I love the Alien franchise and finally a game does it justice. The last time I played the game was on a level I got too stressed out on because of the Alien. Thats how it should be. It's Alien. Come on. This isn't some bush-league, "scary game". Its Alien. Classic Alien. How its supposed to be done. Graphics and controls are perfect if it matters or anyone cares. The game is too awesome.
returning to its roots
we all know the previous alien games didn't seem all that scary as the movies did, it didn't feel like a alien title. Though Creative assembly decides to change that, it gives off that whole survival feeling when a single alien in on board and stalks you throughout the game. Like the movies, no weapons to use but to find a way to escape from the alien and survive. I hope to see more from this game but from what I seen, I can already tell its going to be a great Alien game, a alien game that should have been.
I just got this game the other day and it has been fantastic!! The graphics and sound on this game are crazy amazing. SOUND: Amazing, you can just feel your heart racing when you hear the alien around you or running through the vents above you. GRAPHICS: Crazy amazing, never seen anything like it!!! This is probably the game that is for anyone that loves games that give a good thrill. The aliens movement pattern are almost completely random. They are nothing like Call of Duty. Call of Dutys' movements of the AI are in a complete pattern, in Alien: Isolation it depends on what the player does. I loved it overall, It uses A LOT of stealth, so if you like running around, you will not like this game. Also this game has an AMAZING story line. If you buy this game. you've spent your money well!!!!!!!!
This is not a game I would play again but definitely one I would recommend a friend to buy. After already knowing the story it loses its appeal for the first time around is very exciting thrilling and scary. I would definitely tell others to buy a copy of this game likely preowned, but still play it.
I enjoyed ever second of this game's 22 hour story. The graphics ate stunning, definitely for next gen. The sounds is clear and you feel like you really are in the game. The buildup to the Alien is done fantastically and I found myself holding my breath every time I saw it. It is absolutely terrifying. This Alien game finally lives up to the franchise that started it all, and gives several subtle nods to the original Ridley Scott movie. The game is very long, and gets a little dull for a bit, but it immediately picks right back up. When you aren't wetting your pants hiding from the Alien, you have other survivors and androids gone haywire to worry about. The crafting system is phenomenal, and the story line keeps you interested through the entire game. Fantastic.
