Alien: Isolation Preview |TGH

"In space, you can really hear yourself scream.

A good Alien game is hard to come by. Most decide to focus on James Cameron’s entry into the franchise with Aliens, largely because it’s got US Marines in, has big guns, lots of xenomorphs, and is just packed full of action. Perfect for a video game right? Wrong. Colonial Marines is just one recent example of a bungled opportunity, but there are plenty more out there.

So, when faced with the reality that The Creative Assembly – best known for the Total War series of games and Viking: Battle for Asgard – were working on a new game within the Alien universe, a little bit of trepidation set in. However, that needn't be the case at all." - Words by Vaughn.H

Survival horror is making its AAA return. Provided this doesn't end up as messy as Aliens Colonial Marines.

But this game has no Guns and Rocket launchers does it? How can it be survival-horror returning and from where??

Survival horror is supposed to be about surviving odds in a scary environment, right? This seems to be that kind of game. And survival horror hasn't been in the AAA part of the industry for a pretty long time. Since RE4 came out, I think,

Survival horror was a term invented by RE creator. IIRC that game had many weapons and you fought and "puzzled" your way trough those scary narrow corridors.This looks more like Amnesia wanna be,spaceship walking sim. I still can't figure how can people hate only little bit of action in horror oriented games today , but they had no complaints in older RE games for example. The fact that Crapcom ruined RE starting from 5 then 6 , does not mean a scary horror adventure cant be done anymore even if it had some weapons and fighting it still could be good if done well.

Actually, Alien: Isolation will have some weapons. It isn't a non-combat game like Amnesia. They won't be very effective against the Alien, but there are other enemies, as well.
