Alien: Isolation

9 October 2014


Alien: Isolation is a recently-released game that has caught my attention with its atmospheric visuals and difficult stealth-based gameplay. I've prepared a YouTube Video at maximum settings and hard difficulty which provides brief commentary, then a sample of the storyline and some general gameplay. If you're a fan of the first Alien movie, and you have a fair bit of patience, the game is highly recommended.


Update: More comprehensive general gameplay footage here, highlighting the alien AI at maximum difficulty.
