Another attempt is being made at an AAA Aliens game, this time from Fox's own new publishing arm. But can the IP be redeemed?
Alien Isolation 2 is needed. Alien Isolation proved beyond doubt that a good Alien game could be made.
Why does dispatches.cheatcc.com want everything to die all the time? Are they some kind of sick perverts ?
I loved Isolation but I never finished it - I've always intended to but it's like diving back into hell intentionally.
Alien vs predator 2 showed it 17 years ago (didn't play the 1st). I would recommend it for the younger guys/gals around here that are Alien fans.
"Should Alien Games Die Like Ripley?" And then be cloned again for a cheap sequel!
Lol Alien 3 & 4 were big mistakes
I quite liked Alien 3
I know it's the die hard fan in me but I have never seen a bad alien film, even though 3 was just okay at best. It's kinda like Dark Souls for me. Dark Souls 2 is my least-liked of the series but even that is still a great game compared to most games.
I liked 3 and Resurrection... Just not as much as Alien and Aliens. Now Predator... The AvP movies were bad and Predators was a little bit crappy. Hope they make the new film great.
I actually one of the few who liked 3 & 4. It's the newers movies Prometheus & Covenant that I'm not too fond of.
Redeemed? Isolation was amazing. If they make Isolation 2, it will be a day 1 for me.
Isolation kicked ass! Some parts drove me a little nutty, but overall it was great. If they wanted to do an fps, then they better model and develop it much better than the games in the past. If not, then dont waste the time and money.
Alien games should be all about the horror... not about combat, as long as games like Alien Isolation is made, then no... they shouldnt die. and right now, rebellion if they are making the next alien game, has a chance to make this franchise big, all due to VR.
Should Websites Like dispatches.cheatcc.com Die Like Ripley? Probably
The IP was already redeemed with Isolation. The real question is will this new game tarnish it back up again.
The thing is, the IP has so much potential. It’s just rare to see a developer do it justice. Colonial Marines could’ve been an excellent title, had it not been sucked into development limbo for several years, and actually had one studio stick to it and give a respectable dev time. It’s not like there haven’t been great games from it. Many liked Isolation, and I personally thought AvP on PS3 was an amazing game. It just needs to be handled properly.
Beat Isolation on Nightmare mode. 'Twas a superb experience. Only 1 thing bugged me though.. see you get a shotgun in that game and yet it DOESN'T KILL THE ALIEN >:( Anyone who's seen an Alien movie knows the effect shotguns have on those suckers. I can't even imagine what kind of face melting graphics Isolation 2 would have given the first was on the 360, ps3, xbone, ps4 and PC. How did they make it look so good even on the 360 with so many versions to simultaneously develop for :0
Aliens 2 was and still is an amazing film. That's the Alien game I've always wanted, with the tech we have now imagine the action and set pieces that could be created. Either controlling Ripley or Marines, and it should be third person to not FPS, this for me personally is where all the Alien games have failed. Imagine Uncharted quality in an Alien universe.
Only if a game with the quality of Isolation is made otherwise sure.
Alien Isolation was actually a really good game.
Can the IP be redeemed? I hadn't realized it had really lost any popularity. Alien Isolation showed that with GOOD games the IP is still more than strong enough in several areas. Human and cyborg characters, Xenomorphs and Predators, interesting story lines, great art direction and style (love the retro-interstellar stuff!), space travel and planetary exploration...plenty of checkmarks for great games.
The premise doesn't even make sense. Even if all the Alien games to date had been terrible it would still not mean that the franchise had no potential. Just look at what Rocksteady did with Arkham Asylum. Batman had not had a good game since the genesis days. Yet they pulled out not 1, but 3 near masterworks. If someone had said. Batman games ain't working. Time for the franchise to die like Jason Todd. Then we would never have had those awesome games.
