As far as the game is concerned after playing for a couple of hours it is everything I had hoped it to be. The visuals and sound are amazing and it is just like being in the 1979 original Alien film. As far as the gameplay is concerned it is very much a stealth game and every decision you may will result in escape or pretty instant death therefore patience is required and I would say that you need to explore/revisit areas as much as possible. It is not a shoot-em up and so rushing headlong into situations will get you immediately killed. With headphones on every noise will make you jump and again listening is a major skill in avoiding enemies.
Compared with other recent games, I doubt if it will have the longevity of Skyrim or Fallout, but the fact that it is so different from most FPS games, and is very immersive, may mean its replay value will go a long way.
Update 13/10/14. Now approx halfway through the game on the hardest setting. Still would give it 5 stars. A pure stealth game with the option to use weapons as a distraction. Very realistic and challenging. Save points in some parts of the game are scarily sparse yet in other parts they seem plentiful. Just be prepared to play a section a few times. Certainly, it demands an intelligent approach rather than blast-em-all gung-ho approach. Have had a few crashes but nothing to spoil the overall experience.
Don't expect to hunt for ammo and spam health packs - this is not a run-and-gun FPS. This is survival horror, you versus terrified scavengers, disturbing androids... and one alien. One single, silent, unstoppable and utterly relentless alien. If you make a mistake, chances are you'll die. If you try to take on the alien with the very few weapons available, you'll almost certainly die.
To clarify, the game rarely relies on jump scares (but there are a few) and instead uses a superbly crafted atmosphere to create a sense of dread and threat. Make too much noise and you'll attract the wrong sort of attention (if you're lucky it will be one of the supremely creepy 'Working Joe' androids), only one of the most vital pieces of kit has a habit of screeching like an early 90s modem.
The first time you properly see the alien unfolding noiselessly from a ceiling vent you will likely find yourself not breathing exactly like your character, praying you can quickly and quietly get to a hiding spot without being detected.
Some cons - a bit of a learning curve with little hand-holding and a slow start. I played this game for a couple of hours and was about to turn it off for good before something happened - and that didn't even involve the alien, which takes some time to show up. Puzzles tend to be fairly simple, but not necessarily easy. If you think laterally, if you try to put yourself in Amanda Ripley's shoes you will either have a panic attack or play more effectively. Or possibly both.
Disclaimer: I have not finished this game.
The first and most important thing to know about this game is that it isn't a shooter so if that's what you're hoping for unfortunately the game isn't for you. Seriously...you cant actually kill it! You literally have to run and cry in a locker. However! If you're a fan of the first film then this is what the franchise and fans have been crying out for for so many years.
The greatest aspect of this game is without doubt the Alien itself and how smart it is. It adapts to how you play and your methods to try and find you, catch you and kill you. If in one encounter for example you use a noisemaker numerous times it knows it's being toyed with and learns from what you do making it even more terrifying in later game play. The encounters with it are also completely unscripted so at any point it could attack come from anywhere and that's it...you're done. The screeching noise it makes also when it finds you is on it's own terrifying, let alone the thumping noise you hear behind you once it's started chasing you. It could jump out of a vent, be inside a vent with you or be lurking behind a door. Once it finds you though it's a certain death! You cant kill it, you cant outrun it and you can try and outsmart it because like I said...it adapts....it's the "perfect organism". (See what i did there?)
A few other things is that visually the game looks beautiful, the level of detail they've put into the game is immense.Read more ›
