"Alien: Isolation is a survival horror game set in the first-person perspective, where the player assumes the role of Amanda Ripley. Much like the SEGA Saturn classic Enemy Zero, a large space station is navigated, rife with winding corridors and solutions to various situations must be found, all while avoiding very lethal threats in a stealthy manner and gathering supplies to cobble together IEDs. From the outset, it becomes very clear early on that The Creative Assembly wanted to make a semi-remake or reboot of the original film Alien. Perhaps the notion of having an Alien game without a character named "Ripley" felt too risky. While the narrative in Alien: Isolation is perfectly serviceable, it is meant to create the conditions and atmosphere established in the 1979 film."
