Alien Isolation provides an utmost emotionally pulling experience, and runs flawlessly on the Nintendo Switch. The game truly is a testament to what can be done by third-party developers and porting studios.

The game's ability to capture a strong dose of the original Alien film's atmosphere helps create a wonderfully immersive experience. As long as you understand that this is a survival game where brute force will simply lead to a quick death, it's highly recommended.

Alien: Isolation was not a game that many thought would find a home in the Nintendo Switch but here we are. And the result could not be more satisfying: with its horrifying sensations, heart-pounding suspense, perfectly crafted environments and a sound component that's certain to cause severe frights, Alien: Isolation on the Nintendo Switch is a marvelous piece of work that deserves every second dedicated to it.

Alien: Isolation was a very positive surprise when it was launched in 2014 and five years later it still is on the Nintendo console. Possibly it is the game that does more justice to the xenomorph franchise, it will know how to keep us in tension and get scared on more than one occasion, although the high duration of the title and the repetition of situations subtract some of them. In spite of everything, if you are a fan of the franchise, and horror games are your favourite genre, do not miss the opportunity.

While I do think it has pacing issues along with some annoying elements, I think it’s still worth a look.

Alien Isolation is an essential horror game, and the Nintendo Switch version might even be the very best place to play it, as long as you can ignore the caveats mentioned above. With excellent picture and audio quality, thick atmosphere, and a beautiful aesthetic, it is one of the most interesting licensed games ever released, and a great stealth horror title to enjoy.
