    Alien: Isolation represents a strong return to form for an ailing franchise.

    While it has a few rough patches and may prove too slow and drawn-out for some players, Isolation does an amazing job of capturing the essence of a classic film and recasting it as a video game. It can be a little too easy to see the man behind the curtain at times, but this is nevertheless one of the finest film-to-game adaptations ever... and a fantastic stealth adventure in its own right.

    Alien: Isolation will make you scream in both frustration and euphoria but succeeds where many games of this franchise have failed.

    Alien Isolation does not make all the dreams of the franchise fans come true, but makes a huge step in that direction.

    There have been a handful of Alien games over the years, but none have delivered an experience so close to the intent of the films as Isolation. With visuals authentic enough to have been ripped right from the movies and a terrifyingly intelligent monster as the primary antagonist, Alien: Isolation makes for a memorable experience, and clear proof that Colonial Marines was the fault of the developer and not the material.

    Unlike its titular organism, Alien: Isolation is decidedly imperfect. The story falls flat, your objectives lack a sense of accomplishment, and the campaign drags on longer than it should. When the gameplay is at its best, however, Isolation delivers the thrill of being in the Alien universe, something fans like me have waited a long time to properly experience.

    It’s a bad sign that the weakest parts of Alien: Isolation are the parts with the alien. You’d think getting that right would be a priority. Instead, the best parts of the game involve running around space corridors and turning space handles and flipping space switches and pressing space buttons and getting through space doors and turning on space generators. But then an alien comes along and forces you to play something else entirely.

    Alien Isolation delivers one of the most harrowing and unnerving survival horror experiences in years. Capturing the vibe of the first filmAlien Isolation delivers one of the most harrowing and unnerving survival horror experiences in years. Capturing the vibe of the first film with absolute precision.

    the sound design and presentation is impeccable, the alien an unstoppable force whose unpredictable nature makes every second of the game feel nauseating. The voice acting is sublime and it is a universe to get lost in (no pun intended)

    Creative Assembly have not only created one of the best survival games in years, but one of the best alien franchise experiences since James Cameron's sequel in the 80's.

    it is claustrophobic, violent, heart stopping and you will die over and over again.

    the ride will be worth it.

    I got this on sale on PSN for £9.99 including all DLC - anyone who likes horror games or is into the Alien franchise should give this a go. It is brilliant! The atmosphere, the sound, the tension, and the possibility of multiple styles of play (use distractions or choose full stealth) in a game that tests your patience is why this is a real gem.

    It misses out on 10/10 due to pacing issues - it drags when about 50% through.

    Alien Isolation is exactly what the Alien franchise needed after the terrible Alien vs Predator games and the awful Colonial Marines. TheAlien Isolation is exactly what the Alien franchise needed after the terrible Alien vs Predator games and the awful Colonial Marines. The whole game, you're running away from something you can't hide from or fight against, and the Xenomorph's AI is very unpredictable. What you get is a finely polished horror experience, that gives us what Colonial Marines should have given us. The graphic are also amazing, giving everything finely tuned details, that make you think that you're inside the movies. I do have a couple of problems though. Halfway through the game, the sense of tension goes away, and never comes back, which is sad. Apart from that, Alien Isolation is an overall solid Alien game that you should definitely pick up.

    None of the mystery or compelling characters that makes the Alien franchise decent is present. Frustrating and dull. Very dissapointed. TheNone of the mystery or compelling characters that makes the Alien franchise decent is present. Frustrating and dull. Very dissapointed. The entire game is based around the last 40mins of the 1st film, which is the most boring imo. Where is the plot? The mystery and exploration of a new and dangerous situation is what makes Alien for me. Not just hiding from an alien and androids, I want to see space jockeys and C ships. Just meh. Expand
