I played Alien: Isolation for forty-five minutes, and in that time it did more to rehabilitate the alien in the part of my brain reserved for things that scare the shit out of me than any game since the original Aliens versus Predator.



Quote
I gained control back as the Alien moved to leave the room. It's enormous - around eight foot tall - and much more upright than its counterpart in Aliens. It doesn't move particularly quickly unless it has seen you. This is a lone hunter, not a pack animal, and you pose no threat to it - it doesn't need to dash about looking for you. It takes its time.

Shit game. Basically a reskin of Amnesia. Very crappy mechanics. The xeno was LITERALLY behind her and 1 sec later she saw it and ran away just like that. Lol no. If there's a xeno behind you, if you see it after it was already there - that would be because the xeno allowed you to live enough to do it; if you try to out run a xeno in a room or corridor you will fail; The scary thing about the "original" xeno was that it was better in every aspect than the average human. In the video, in the moment I realized that I can out run a xeno I was no longer afraid of it. And this is where the game ends for me. The whole idea of playing hide and seek with a xeno is laughable. You can't hide, its not about if you can hide from it but when the xeno will attack. Those moments when the player hid behind some machine and the xeno just stand on the other side instead of crawl above and kill the player were "ROFL" moments  :laugh:

This is what we always wanted in a game with xenomorphs.

The Alien in ALIEN didn't really seem all that interested in chasing after Ripley.

The end of ALIEN must have been a laugh out loud riot.

Looks great. This is the Alien game I've always wanted, hopefully it delivers. It needs this after Colonial Marines.
