So, now we have topics about what's good in Resurrection, AVPR, The Predator and ACM. I think it's time to turn things on their heads a little and actually start to talk about what things considered as masterpieces by majority actually did wrong. I think it will be good to begin with Isolation.
So what the problem? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7g9TZwfbPI
I mean particularly 0:26 - 0:32. I think final product really lacks episodes like this. Isolation is definetly full of tension. But horror? Don't know. You can see Alien fully, in bright light, you have clear audio clues of it movements and motion tracker. There's really not much (if any) bits where you totally don't know where Stompy is right now (and that is what make Alien SO scary, isn't it?). Also if Stompy sees you he screams, attacks and kills you straight away like mindless beast. I would love to see Alien actually playing with player as psychopatic serial killer playing with his victim, so you never know whether Alien aware of your presence or not. I think, it would make death moments more sudden and powerful.
And there really not much playing with darkness. I mean, in trailer you see the situation when player forced to use flashlight to navigate in the darkness but the flashlight is the thing that rise Alien attention to you. I would prefer if game would show player only small glimpses of Alien hiding in the dark right till moment of it killing the player.
I understand that developers probably didn' t make these decisions just to avoid massive waves of heart attacks but...
So that's the issue i have with Isolation. Do you have any?
