Hands-on Impressions of Alien: Isolation From E3 2014 | Entertainment Buddha

EB's Matt Heywood writes, "The Alien movie franchise is for the most part fantastic, but the same can’t be said for the often troubled and underwhelming Alien video game franchise. Like many video games based on movies the Alien branded titles have either been glorified Xenomorph shooting galleries, or sloppily designed affairs like the recent Aliens: Colonial Marines. The Alien video game franchise just hasn’t been able to recapture the palpable fear that the movies first induced way back in the late 70′s, but that may now change with Creative Assembly’s Alien: Isolation. While at E3 2014 I got some hands-on time with the game and its challenge mode of sorts, and by the time my demo I ended I definitely felt like Ripley must have while she was aboard the Nostromo."

Not gonna lie this game is scary as hell. May not be for everyone because the stealth gameplay is brutally hard, but it definitely feels like you're playing the Alien movies.

I tried this game several times. It's not scary at my eyes, but probably it's one of the best game I've played at the E3.

In few words, I think this game is pretty awesome.

Nice to hear, guys. As a fan of the Alien(s) movies and a horror game fan I was really looking forward to this game and hoping it would be good.

I can't wait for this game. Looks like what an Alien game should be.

What platforms were you guys playing it on? Are the graphics as good as the gameplay?

HAMM3RofBUDDHA1589d ago

I played on the PS4 and Xbox One, and didn't notice much difference between the two.

Only one thing worries me. With the Oculus support confirmed. Will playing Alien Isolation in VR be too scary?
