So, why have so few players reached the end of Alien: Isolation?
The reason I didn't finish it is covered in the article. I got a few games all at once due to the flood of games that came out in the fall, and this game got pushed to the back of the pack. I'll get to it soon though. I would expect the percentages of people that completed the game to rise slightly once we hit a gaming drought.
running around while the alien is chasing you became tedious because the radar doesn't work so well and you can't do anything if it finds you.
Finnished it, loved every second of it. Great game!!! 😃
I beat it. It was fun, but the ending left me wanting more. I hope they make a sequel. This game was pretty easy even on hard for me.
Tense atmosphere is definitely the reason why I put it down for days at a time before picking it back up. That and rage quitting after the Alien finds you. I've also heard the FoV (on consoles at least) has been causing motion sickness/nausea for many gamers. As for Xbox stats for the game, I would probably start with TrueAchievements.
More tense than Dead Space??
I'd say its more or less equal to Dead Space but its not exactly the same. Like sure the necromorphs can and will jump out of vents and you have to be cautious with that and the tentacle that grabs Isaac but you have the luxury of being able to shoot them with whatever weapons you have. Whereas in Alien you're encouraged to sneak and hide as much as you can to avoid attracting the alien, who also likes to stalk you throughout levels might I add.
It is more tense than Dead Space because you do not have a large amount of weaponry at your disposal. There are gadgets and a few guns which are very limiting.
This is a stupid article because every game is pretty much the same. Not much people finish the game especially if its longer than a 4 to 6 hr game. Took me over 20hrs to beat Alien my first time through.
I'm currently playing it and enjoying it. It's not a strong genre to be fair as far as sales are concerned. The problem nowadays, is there are more ppl gaming but most ppl who are casual want short and sweet. Us more enthusiastic gamers are usually along the lines of the longer the better. I've heard there are problems with this game slumping in the later half but we did backtracking in games back in the day
I wouldn't say it comes down to enthusiasm, plenty of people are very enthusiastic gamers but a lot them, who used to have time for very long games, are adults now with much tighter time constraints. Games of great length can seem a daunting task, and if the game happens to be repetitive or lulls significantly at any stage, they'll feel like they're wasting precious gaming time and stop, likely moving on to a different game they probably won't complete. Life is tough :p
I agree to am extent. I rarely play a game over and over anymore. MGS, zelda, and god of war being for the most part an exception. Being older and having a kid had put a hinder on me playing rpgs these days considering how long they are, but I've also played through last of us like 4 times now lol. It's just a matter of how entertaining it is. I guess the said thong is the people that have plenty of time and just stop
Because Booorinnggg... And repetitive... Repetitive= Boring. Hide and seek Simulator.
The save system
Finished it today!
I finally finished it 2 days ago. The game is very long. That's one of the main reasons why I think people haven't finished it.
I skipped this game at release. Hoping to find this and the evil within in the bargain bin at some point for ps4, and play them during the summer time drought maybe.
Finished it om hard. My goty 2014.
cause todays hold your hand gaming has spoiled alot of gamers and they quit at any challenge too easily.
After reading the first article a couple of weeks ago about the low % of people who finished it, I checked the thropies more closely. Apparently biggest drop offs happened around first and fouth missions. I would like to think that I was not the only one that wandered foran hour searching for a route to continue in the first or second mission only to realize there was a single hatch in the floor that you was supposed to open and go inside. The fourth IIRC was when you had to avoid working joes for the first time ? Both of which are quite chalenging for new players. Out of my curiosity I also checked GTA V's trophies and found that it had very similar completion rate (15%) and some of the easier trophies (like finish all rampages) still hold high rarity. Maybe that just because less people have bothered to complete the new gen version ?
I'm stuck because my PC controller broke. I'm not going to retrain for mouse and keyboard, so until I can fix it or get a new one...
