For franchise fans, the events of Alien Isolation’s story take place 15 years after The original 1979 film, Alien. The protagonist, Amanda Ripley, is the daughter of the film’s hero, Ellen Ripley. The player leads Amanda through an investigation into her mother’s disappearance.
The game has a distinct stealth focus, so if you’re a fan of the later, more action-orientated Alien films, then bear in mind that this is truer to the atmosphere of the original. You’ll be sneaking around and trying to outwit a single Alien, rather than gunning down hordes of deep-space enemies.
Our reviewer said:
“The team at The Creative Assembly has followed the pacing of the film. It’s a slow-burning thriller, not a big action blockbuster, taking its time to build the tension before it even introduces the game’s monster star. The result is a game where you spend an awful lot of time worrying about what might be about to happen, then moving frantically – often in a panic – when it does.
“It doesn’t help that the action is unpredictable, hitting you with shocks you won’t see coming, and an unstoppable nemesis whose behaviour can be hard to pin down. While Alien: Isolation is a test of reflexes, it’s also a test of nerve. Can you keep thinking when you’re scared and under pressure? Can you adapt and survive with death breathing down your neck?”
As one of the best survival horror games of the last decade, Alien Isolation has been a worthy purchase ever since its release – at any price. But the fact that you can now bag the title for less than a cup of coffee
