Sega and Creative Assembly are attempting to redefine the horror-survival genre with Alien: Isolation, but every attempt to demonstrate the games uniqueness has been overshadowed by the failure of Aliens: Colonial Marines.
Are we being too harsh to judge Isolation based on the failure of Colonial Marines? Or will this be a brilliant marketing ploy by dropping everyones expectations so low that the finished work will look good, just like with the Robocop remake.
The Robocop remake sucked balls, unless you mean the Real Robocop remake? http://www.youtube.com/watc... that was fun I'm looking forward to a new Alien game
That remake was awful though lol
Ill always have hope with every new aliens game despite the pitiful track record. The franchise has such great potential its a shame no ones really been successful making it into a game. What we really need is Jerry McGuire The Game. It would have me at hello.
Temper your expectations guys. This game is gonna suck. The Aliens License has no future no matter what devs make the game.

Nope, the one who sucks is Naruto. I'm used to be a fans of Naruto. But after Jiraiya's dead, the manga & anime gone downhill. One example just look at the final arc and the latest chapter for Naruto. Kishimoto took a lot of shortcuts that made the story stinks like a big pile of horse s* and more of a crappy clone of DBZ.
colonian marines is awesome
... That is something I never thought I'd read. XD
our fave stealth troll is back
It really is and this game looks great to me.
I know this is going to be a good game, this game has nothing to do with colonial marines......got the game pre-ordered and paid for, oct 7th can't get here fast enough.
Or maybe, just maybe, Alien is better as a motion picture and not a full length video game, not nearly enough variety as far as enemies go. I am one of the biggest Alien/Giger nerds out there, even have a Nostromo shirt and baseball cap, but enough is enough.
Colonial Marines was SO bad it sort of put another layer of filth on the Alien franchise. I love that IP so it won't die but WOW did they screw up with that piece of garbage. So is it really odd that players will be extremely skeptical? I don't think it is. They have to hit this one out of the park just to get some fans to even LOOK at another aliens game. I mean, hell, Xbox just had colonial marines on sale for $9.99 a week or two ago. My thought was: "I'm not paying $.99 for that garbage." I can't IMAGINE the anger people would have if they paid $60 for it.
You know Alien Vs Predator on the atari jaguar was an awesome alien game, coz it wasnt all about the gfx. But I do understand why people hate the franchise, I seem to remeber aother Alien Game I played on my PS1 and Sega Saturn which wasnt half bad either. Alien Trilogy I think it was. And wasnt Alien Vs Predator on PC not to bad either. Granted Aliens: CM was utter garbage , but i think the gaming press is just to harsh on the franchise. I for one will give Isolation my full attention when its released as I myself love the franchise, and I hope they crack it this time.
People seem to forget that Alien v. Predator 2010 on 360/ps3 was pretty solid also, god damned perfect compared to Colonial Marines
I didn't play colonial marines so I really don't have any prejudices about the game it looks pretty good I don't get why every triple a title has to be a shoot-em up it won't kill you to think of your enemy as an credible threat
