Alien: Isolation - Inner Geek Review

In its opening hour, Alien: Isolation delivers a more lucid atmosphere than most games squeeze into a whole playthrough. The sound design alone will chill you before you’ve even encountered the ebony extraterrestrial.

Overall, the game reeks of quality in both its aesthetic and aural design: The station creaks and groans, doors malfunction, steam escapes vents – with a ‘hiss’ similar to the one the alien makes when angry – alarms and banging noises keep you constantly on edge, and much of the time you can hear the alien clambering through the vents, stalking you.

This is a game to play with a good pair of headphones and a spare pair of pants. Even the motion tracker – which has a dedicated button – increases the feeling of unease. Sure, it helps you track the creature, but it doesn’t tell you if it’s above or below you, it just beeps until you wee yourself.

tbh it doesn’t need a sequel. Fantastic game but not something to make into a long running series.

Good month imo. I'll play Gotham Knights and House of Ashes. I'm finishing up Disco E on Steam right now - that's a superb game.
