First of all I have to say that Alien 1978 it's by far my favourite movie. I still remember when I watched it at the theatre for the first time, the horror of not knowing how the creature looked like, the darkness of the whole world, the relentless pace until the final duel between Ripley and the Alien… a perfect movie. All the love and admiration I have for the film it's obviously shared by the creators of the game. The attention to detail to capture every aspect of the film it's outstanding. Every screw on the walls, every console, every furniture in the spaceship makes you feel like you are inside the Nostromo. Even if you are not a gamer just walking around looking at the details that surround you it's a total joy, and you can do this at the beginning of the game because at some point you won't be able to walk casually anymore: the Alien has arrived. As many people know the behaviour of the Alien it's not scripted, his behaviour changes depending on what you do in the game. This random behaviour it's totally unnerving as you can imagine and in the lower game difficulties it's not very noticeable but I played the game in Hard difficulty and you could see how the Alien "learns" based on your actions. For example I was always hiding under furnitures for a while when the creature was around. After being discovered a few times you can't hide under furnitures for a while because the Alien looks for you there directly, so you need to use lockers or other hiding places until, of course, the Alien finds you again and you need to change your actions. This non scripted behaviour adds to the whole tension of the game another layer so you feel unease every time the monster it's around, not knowing what to expect. If the atmosphere, design and the Alien itself are total genius, there's another superb element in the game: the use of the sound. You can predict somehow what the Alien is doing based on the sounds is making. I never payed so much attention to the sound in a video game, playing it with headphones full volume it's a must so you don't miss any subtlety. And you learn quick enough that the Alien is listening to you too, in harder difficulties any small noise you make will attract his attention. This is not a game for everybody, you'll literally die a thousand times until you understand how the game works, every time you reach a save point it's a huge relief because there's not auto-save and you'll have to repeat long areas several times after dying, but if you are patient enough you'll receive a game experience like no other.
- Alien Isolation – atmosphere above all
- Alien: Isolation has shown me that maybe the hide-and-seek kind of survival horror isn’t exactly for me.
- It’s going to be odd to see the 2012 Amazing Spider-Man movie suit in broad daylight, rendered really realistically and accurately.
