Product Description

Platform: PC | Edition: Nostromo Edition Steelbook

Discover the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation, a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. Fifteen years after the events of Alien, Ellen Ripley's daughter Amanda enters a desperate battle for survival, on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother's disappearance.

As Amanda, you will navigate through an increasingly volatile world as you find yourself confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien. Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions, and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission but simply to stay alive.

Key features:

  • Overcome an ever-present deadly threat: Experience persistent fear as a truly dynamic and reactive Alien uses its senses to hunt you down and respond to your every move.
  • Improvise to survive: Hack systems, scavenge for vital resources, and craft items to deal with each situation. Will you evade your enemies, distract them, or face them head on?
  • Explore a world of mystery and betrayal: Immerse yourself in the detailed setting of Sevastopol, a decommissioned trading station on the fringes of space. Encounter a rich cast of inhabitants in a world scarred by fear and mistrust.

Crew Expendable bonus content

The Nostromo Edition of Alien: Isolation includes Crew Expendable. This bonus content sees the original crew reunited aboard the Nostromo. Brett and Kane are dead; alongside Ash and Lambert, it is now down to you as Dallas, Parker, or Ellen Ripley to find a way to isolate the Alien and overcome the terror that confronts them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely terrifying! 10 Oct 2014
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Nostromo Edition Steelbook
Absolutely f***ing terrifying! I'm not really a big horror/survival kinda guy but this game is amazing. SEGA have completely captured the feel, atmosphere and setting that Ridley Scott so brilliantly achieved with Alien in 1979 and as a result it constantly keeps you on edge and in fear!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing game with 5 star visuals and sound 8 Oct 2014
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Nostromo Edition Steelbook|Verified Purchase
Pre-ordered this game in September to arrive on release date. Sadly it did not arrive until the afternoon of the day after.

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.

Highly recommended

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 28 hours later! 16 Oct 2014
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Nostromo Edition Steelbook
The PC Gamer review estimated the single player campaign to be about 25 hours, I took 28 to complete it (on hardest difficulty and with some back tracking to explore new areas)

My post credits impressions are:
The Environment: The developers have created a very effective environment – this game brought back atmospheric memories of ‘Citadel Station’, ‘Rapture’ and ‘the Metro’ from System Shock, Bioshock and Metro 2033 respectively. It’s a very consistent and immersive game world.

Length: The game is very long! This was criticized by several reviewers who felt the game became repetitive. I did not find it so; the game is actually very well paced – raising and lowering the level of threat between missions to keep the overall experience balanced and prevent ‘threat fatigue’.

Difficulty: The first few times you encounter the alien – it is terrifying. This is largely because you tend to die quickly (and horribly) within seconds of the alien seeing you. It is much faster than you and it was rare for me to escape to a hiding place once spotted. The threat is somewhat diminished when you acquire the flamethrower as a few blasts will force it to flee into the air vents for a few minutes. One reviewer commented that after this the alien became more of a nuisance than a terror. I would partially agree. I think the game would become frustrating if it sustained the very high difficulty of the first few alien encounters for its full 25+ hours, but the flamethrower should not be a ‘get out of jail free’ card. I suggest the developer make a patch to reduce the starting level of fuel for the flamethrower (on the hardest difficulty at least).
