Alien: Isolation Already Looks Better Than That Other Aliens Game

Posted by Kell Andersen

Alien meets Outlast

The Creative Assembly recently dumped a handful of impressive screenshots for upcoming title Alien: Isolation on its official blog, and we're liking what we see. The survival horror sees Amanda Ripley, daughter of the original film's protagonist, stranded on a space station, and stalked by a lone and particularly unfriendly Xenomorph. As these atmospheric images demonstrate, the Horsham-based developer is trying its absolute darndest to create a game that stays true to the visual style of the classic franchise.

Sketchy plot notwithstanding, the title's proposed commitment to a more traditional and claustrophobic atmosphere is filling us with confidence, and, at the very least, we're certain that it'll be miles better than that other Aliens game. Unfortunately, we've signed several UN treaties that preclude us from physically typing that monstrosity's actual name, but we figure that you probably know which one we're talking about. What do you make of these deliciously retro screenshots? Are you excited for this unique take on the Aliens franchise? Nuke it from orbit in the comments section below.

I'm so excited for this! Must admit, Outlast and this are making me wish that there was any hope of a true Dead Space sequel on PS4, though...

I'm hoping this will be as good as as I think it should be. They should definitely slip in a side mission to save a cat and passify a rogue android drooling milk.

The OPM has been speaking highly of this game too, I was reading about it the other day & a few weeks back. The game defiantly looks the part, and from what I've been reading it sound like it'll hopefully be a hit. With Outlast bloody good so far as I've not finished it, and been playing it at night with the lights out. And I'll tell you no other game has managed to make me jump out of my seat saying effing hell, it's a very jumpy game. The sound effects the heavy breathing coming from your character the background music, well its not music but if you've played it you'll know what I mean all adds to the tension. I'm also looking forwards to The Evil Within, that also looks very promising. And I agree it would be good to see a true Dead Space sequel, instead of making an action game.

I'd like to think this game can deliver because the new consoles sure could use it, however, it's based on the Alien property, so not much reason to be optimistic.

Just because colonial marines was terrible, doesn't mean this will be. All these freaking cynics are really pissing me off beyond belief.

It seems this game is trying to do exactly what an Alien game should, in my opinion. That is, trying to recapture the look and feel of the classic original and completely ignore all the other garbage installments. Yes, I thought Aliens was garbage. Yes, I know I'm in the minority with that one.



Gamer83 said:


LOL, yes because the track record is there that I should just expect excellence. Sorry, need to see that happen first.

Making games doesn't have to be hard, it just needs someone in charge who actually plays games and has seen the movies, the end result could be amazing!

I am one of the biggest fans of the Aliens franchise out there, so I am beyond excited for this. After the steaming pile that was Colonial Marines, this game better be absolutely amazing.

Exactly. It's the main reason why most of these Aiens games suck. They aren't made by TRUE fans of the franchise. Instead they are made by companies just trying to cash-in on the Aliens name for a quick buck.
