I can understand this game isnt for everyone but the IGN and Gamespot reviews got it bang wrong. You can recognise quality without having to like something yourself. I can appreciate a band is talented but I dont have to like the music. I can recognise a well made film and still dislike it. Theres a big difference between not enjoying something because its not "your cuppa" and disliking something because its simply not very good and both those big review sites forgot that.

Bang-on, mate.

My takeaway from that re-review:

"Like us... please like us!"

Yeah, indeed. I hated that review a lot:



Alien: Isolation made TIME magazines top ten games of the year. https://time.com/3582118/top-10-video-games-2014/


Quite a few game-of-the-year awards. it seems. Nobody deserves it more. : )

And here's yet another review geared towards bad on the game from these guys I watch. While I still like the game immensely (I suck at it & have never beaten it yet. I'm horrible at stealth type games so I'll probably never beat it) they do happen to bring up some good points not just about Isolation but just about modern gaming in general that also bothers me as well. Anyway, here's the review for those that can sit through some bad mouthing about the game but constructive criticism at the same time..
