Alien Isolation Story Playthrough – First 20 Minutes

According to reports, game reviewers have got their hands on Alien Isolation last week but we don’t know when the review embargo will be lifted. Today, the first 20 minutes of Alien Isolation have now been posted by Youtube user PewDiePie, with the approval of Sega. It starts with Sigourney Weaver’s “signing off” speech from the end of Ridley Scott’s Alien and we’re introduced to Amanda Ripley. She learns that the Nostromo Flight Recorder is on Sevestapol Space Station and goes on a mission to retrieve it. The team reaches the Station and three of them go into space to reach it. The video ends with an explosion causing them to be separated and Amanda manages to climb her way into the Station.

I would avoid watching it if I were you and the guy who does the commentary is extremely annoying and clearly doesn’t know much about the Alien franchise. He does, however, promise that more parts will be posted soon so stay tuned. If you can get past him, the footage is pretty good and sets up the game well.

    I've finished the story mode and both DLC missions and died like a million times but still haven't got the 100 deaths trophy. Do you only get it when playing the main story mode? Does survivor mode and DLC count?

    Can anyone explain to me how the hell I get the doors open that require a power restore? I'm playing the game a second time and still can't open certain areas. Something is going right over my head.

    I noticed all the computer logs were dated too. I'd sure love to put together a detailed timeline of this new Alien lore. The information from the Weyland Industries site, the new novel trilogy, fire and stone, plus this game and of course the films themselves would make compelling reading.

    So, did anyone ever use the crafting system in this game? The only thing I ever crafted was medkits.

    Seriously? I crafted the hell out of everything. Pipe bomb + androids = kablowie

    I tried a pipe bomb once on an android. I hit it dead square in the torso and it kept coming at me.

    Was it wearing the rubber suit? Those androids are impervious to most attacks besides the shotgun and boltgun.

    so u played with or without walktrough? ::) i have to admit i had to dig up one for mission 17. i mean f**k that, those mission objectives were confusing with always popping up the same objective, and the alien was all over the place and i havent got any ammo for the flamethrower

    Nope. It's just easy to tell that the Xeno isn't going to show up in certain areas, and I don't know if it reacts to things like pipe bombs. I kind of just risked it and hoped it would never be loud enough to show up.

    Nope. No suit. It was one of the missions after mission 9 when they were running mad all over the place.

    The use of friendly NPCs in AI its "ala Bioshock"...you hear them, look at them behind a window, or watch them dying

    I had to resort to a walkthru 3 times for stuff that wasn't even really hard, just confusing locations on maps and what not.

    I've been playing it through on medium but kind of wish I'd been playing it on hard. I'm finding it a little too easy.

    You can bump it up at any time  ;)

    Btw I have found a definite proof that the xeno is cheating. I managed to lock it in a room without vents, all doors were locked, basically I carefully picked the room to have no ways of getting out besides the doors that I will lock, and I lured it in and managed to lock it inside but a few moments later it teleported outside - that's cheating, sorry. You can try and test this out by yourself guys.

    Still crying?

    I relied on it. I used them sparingly on the alien, so he never caught on. I used a couple noisemakers in the later part of the game and without them, I would have gotten killed. Used a few pipe bombs on the droids when I had multiple ones chasing me. Huge save. I killed 4 with one if I recall. Without the pipe bomb, I do not move on.

    I felt the EMP devices were worthless. I used a malatov once to scare an alien from stalking me in an air vent. Smoke bomb once to cover my escape from some humans.

    I felt the crafting system saved my life.

    You're most likely not going to get an answer ever. It's been purposely kept vague for people to speculate.

    Sure, I've crafted everything, and I used pipe bombs and flashbangs sometimes. You can also place those items on the ground and they act as proximity sensors and you can ensure temporal safety or at least you'd know where the creature is if you placed it strategically.

    Anyway, the safest thing to do with terminals is to quickly browse through everything and then retreat to a closet and then pull out a map screen from which you can access all the logs and read them without exposing yourself to Alien.

    Sometimes, there are moments or sections in the gane when i think..."well, he is in the vents...i hear it, but it has been there for 10 minutes now...so its clear that the alien will not show up here for designe purpose"...and then, im dead 5 seconds later

    It seems he can do whatever  he want in the game lol

    Looking other people playthroughs...they are so different from mine O_O

    Aye, very few scripted events. Point to remember is that while you are doing different things, like powering up a generator, cutting through something etc. time is not paused. The Alien can get you. I think looking at map is the only point when the game is actually paused.
  14. Seegson
    Well, i was sure you can use terminals, reading mails etc...without the worriging of being killed by the Alien. I was wrong.

    Its really hard to know the amount of scripted events in this game related to the alien, and that is a good point
