Alien: Isolation erases the memory of Colonial Marines, but it's still not the great Alien game we were hoping for.

A shorter, sharper campaign would condense the high points more potently, and some better characterisation would make the plot twists hit harder. But if you're looking for a game that really sinks its teeth into what makes this iconic movie monster endure, look no further.

The game the Alien series has always deserved. A deep, fun stealth game set in an evocatively realised sci-fi world.

Pacing problems and a lack of variety take their toll, but in its best most moments this is the most successful big budget survival horror in a decade.

1 / 10.0
The first 20 minutes were quite fun, after the first hour i wanted to hang myself, you will get to do the same thing over and over. Oh no! the way is blocked! try another! Oh no! The way you want to use needs electricity! Oh you´re about to leave this *** damn ship! Oh no, the way you wanted to leave didn´t work! Oh no! Oh no! you are lucky that i life in germany and don´t
3 / 10.0
Honestly, one of the worst single player games i have ever played. I beat it in 15 hours and if there wasnt lack of creativity from the devs it could be beaten if 5 but no cus for doors to open you have to turn on the generator on the opossite side of the map then once you finally reach that door, you find out the generator magically failed so you have to go take that route
