Alien: Isolation review | Destructoid

Destructoid: Halfway into playing Alien: Isolation, I stopped to watch the first four Alien movies again. It wasn't just for research purposes, but mostly because the game had me yearning for more of the universe. Isolation has some flaws, but it's faithful to the film series, and I'd love to see a follow-up with a few extra alien evolutions.

will wait for pricedrop

I would say they are actually trending upwards now. There were a few low scores (Gamespot & IGN giving it a 6/10), but it seems like more people are giving it 8-9's now.

I'm looking forward to hearing Angry Joes opinions, he's a big Alien fan

I find his reviews honest

Yeah AJ is honst, but I don't always agree. it comes down to perspective. experience and knowledge.

For instance a lot of people have bashed KZSF for being to hard... LOL. I read a lot of reviews and most made no sense when I played it myself. Other than a little weak presentation of the story I found the game to be fairly good, excellent even in parts.

AJ is cool, Im looking forward to his review also.
The best thing is always to check out multiple reviews and interviews etc.
Some reviewers I like and agree more with than others.
reviewers are people and very few people enjoy all kinds of games and experiences so you kinda have to go to the ones that like the types of games you do.

Well it's a gamergate site so how much can you really believe.

IGN & gamespot complain because the game is too long... they just have too many games to review/play that 20 hours for one is too much.

JoGam1384d ago

Too long? WTF! Either too long or Too short. What the hell ia considered just right? Hour less? Hour more? SMH.

Got the game today, played for about three hours and really enjoying it. The graphics on the PS4 version are not that great but strangely the character models are awesome.

I was very surprised to come on here and see a 5.9 from ign lol.

IGN is the Fox News of gaming.

Two sites which i use for gauging a game because i tend to agree with them after i play a game, one of them is Destructoid and another is Gametrailers, if they both say its good then ill most likely agree.

equal_youth1384d ago

i will get it tomorrow when my friend gets it in their stores. I am sure it will turn out to be good for me as i like horror driven games and like to connect with my enemy. The alien seems to have its own personality. something that ign's reviewer has clearly missed to mention. i should say every time ryan mccaffrey reviews something at ign i dont take it seriously.

i am not always in line with what destruction has to say as an example i find their shadow of mordor review to harsh, this time i would love to agree with them.

but opinions you know... opinions.
