Players find themselves in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger as an unpredictable, ruthless Xenomorph is stalking and killing deep in the shadows. 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. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I have played and finished this game many times over, and I can officially say it is one of the best games I have had the pleasure of playing. After so many sequels, spinoffs, and terrible cheap remakes, you'd think it would be impossible to make the classic alien truly frightening, but Alien Isolation achieves this. The alien is an extremely oppressive and downright terrifying being, that will have you peeing your pants every time you hear the noise signalling it has dropped from a vent. The atmosphere also assists with not only making this game feel eerie, but also making you feel as though you have stepping into the Alien universe. Amanda is a wonderful protagonist, mirroring (but not copying) what made Ellen of the original such a great lead. The side characters are also wonderfully written, and I found myself screaming "Noooooooo" as each of them met their untimely end. So in the end, all these elements add up to make a fresh, and absolutely horrifying experience that will leave you clenching your controller with sweaty palms, and refusing to put it down until the credits start to roll.

    i am such a huge fan of Ridley Scott's Alien also Alien's prequel Prometheus and James Cameron Aliens. The alien series is one my favoritei am such a huge fan of Ridley Scott's Alien also Alien's prequel Prometheus and James Cameron Aliens. The alien series is one my favorite sci-fi movies that a true sci movie it for true sci movie goers like me and for geeks also someone who has taste for movies. after playing colonial marines it really it doesn't go any were but i did love it even though it was confusing and they did not find ripley but thanks to SEGA we know have a sequel !. this game is hard in deed then you can't find a solution to escape to this " Alien " then you beat the game. they really understand alien they designed the characters realistic , they designed the spaceship it was like being in the 1979 spaceship all over again. Grade A+ ( best game of 2014) Expand

    Great game so far. I have played about 4 hours of the game so far,and ill tell you that it keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. theGreat game so far. I have played about 4 hours of the game so far,and ill tell you that it keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. the Alien is not the only danger too, you have to watch out for rogue androids and other surviving crew members. The graphics are great for the XBOX 360 looking almost like next gen consoles. the game play is great adding features in the game from the DEAD SPACE series like the famous save stations and concepts from the horror game OUTLAST. the only issue so far is that sometimes the words do not always match the mouth. SEGA really improved from their last game ALIEN: COLONIAL MARINES. Expand

There was a lot of scares,Although I thought the storyline was thin, and the saving system was unfair, the game was still fun in many ways. There was a lot of scares, action, and enough enemies to refreshen the game every time you play it.The levels do get harder once you first encounter an alien. Expand

    What we have here is a first person, horror-survival video game in outer space. Visually stunning. Very intense. Not a bad game -- but alsoWhat we have here is a first person, horror-survival video game in outer space. Visually stunning. Very intense. Not a bad game -- but also very frustrating, and repetitive. The controls are somewhat weak, and the crafting, while simple, does not work as well as intended. Lots of issues with lighting. Wasn't enthusiastic about the saving scheme. These issues hold back what could've been a great game. Still it is very much worth a try, especially for people that are fans of this particular genre, or the movie series. I would not play this again, because it felt a smidgen too long, but the first run through is an experience. Expand

    First, let me apologize to the action gamers of the world. I too, was disappointed to find that there was a lack of gun play to this game.First, let me apologize to the action gamers of the world. I too, was disappointed to find that there was a lack of gun play to this game. However, what I also didnt expect was to be sucked in by the total fear I had when playing this game. Every noise made me stop instantly, crouching, waiting for the Alien to grab me. Little did I know It would be a good while before I even had to worry about it. One thing that I liked about "Silent Hill" was the constant fear of Pyramid Head lurking around every dark corner. Well thats the exact effect "Alien:Isolation" had on me...FOR THE ENTIRE GAME! So, in closing I will break it down as thus:
    Pro:Great hide and go seek game! Ambiance is outstanding.
    Con:Killing things is hard, sometimes impossible. So If action is your name, this aint yo game!
