Product description

Platform:PC  |  Edition:Nostromo Edition

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.

fantastic recreation of the alien universe prestine graphics, Horror intense moments thats visually stunning and engrosssing to play. Creative Assembly have outdone themselves beyond measure.

This game manages to capture the first films horror, suspense recreating the the Alien universe with such detail and graphical quality.
Gameplay- 6/10 while enjoyable to play it can get lost in itself levels sometimes feeling ovely long. but makes up for this in the suspenseful moments, and mechanics of crafting, world interaction, this is the Alien game we have been waiting for.
Graphics- 9/10 the attention to detail of the Alien universe coupled with great lighting/ dynamic effects, great set pieces this shines on graphical quality.
This is no run and gun like Alien colonial marines or Aliens V predator so if wanting all out action then play them, this is a suspense, hide and seek horror in the Alien universe where survival is key.

A tribute to the first Alien film

I can laugh about it now ('Ha ha' - there you go) but I thought the ideal way to approach playing this game would be to attempt a 'no-death' run right off the bat. Initially, the upshot of this idea was the generation of tension so severe it made me feel unwell. It turned-out that I repeatedly got myself shot to death by groups of jumpy humans. That was before I even encountered the 'thing' one-to-one. So, could I avoid Alien-related death? Well, no. I couldn't. Not even for twenty minutes. The tension lessened somewhat as I was dragged out of a locker for perhaps the thirtieth time - unlocking the hidden 'Idiot Lightweight' achievement.
So, this great tension didn't last and I have mixed feelings about that. Having now completed the game I have no plans to play it again. The main reason for this....is the Alien. Not because it kept finding me, that was my fault certainly, but a fault caused by my developing indifference to whether it found me or not. Despite all the good things in this game - and there are many - I feel the developers have completely overdone the player's exposure to it. There are few levels where you don't spend the entire time listening to it thundering up and down the air vents - dropping in to the corridors - and then leaping up in to the vents once again. There are some random elements to the order in which it does this, but, essentially, if the Alien is in your area, it STAYS there until you complete the level. It only leaves when YOU do - more often than not following you to the next area to repeat its routine.
Maybe I expect too much and maybe it's not a common view, but the Alien should have been a rare encounter in this game. Not only that, it should have been rare AND random. If it was in your area and it discovered you were there also, THEN go to town with it.

A sneak-em-up along the lines of Penumbra. What's remarkable about this game is how astonishingly well the world of the original Alien film (i.e. the 1979 one) is brought to life. You'll need a reasonably beefy PC to get the most out of this, but if you do, not only are the graphics & visuals incredibly impressive, but it's the "art direction" as a whole that shines through. Everything looks and sounds as it did in the original film, and it's amazingly immersive and atmospheric. If your nerves will stand it, play in the dark with headphones on a large monitor - I guarantee you'll jump once or twice.

The downside is that this is a game which requires an odd mix of patience and impulsivity, and that can make it frustratingly difficult at times. Your character is not entirely helpless, but no match for most of what she encounters - you're not a super-soldier, armed to the teeth here. You cannot kill the titular Alien when you run into it (and even the Working Joe androids are formidable at the outset). Eventually, you can drive the Alien off, but it's a deliberately ferocious, unstoppable, fast, random enemy - if it sees you, you're dead and you can basically cut to the chase by hitting escape right then. None of this is helped by one of the hardest levels in the entire game occurring very early on (San Christobel Medical Facility) - it's outrageously difficult for that stage in the overall playthrough.

As a gameplay mechanic, it's actually not one I like very much, as the first time you make a mistake, you're dead and will be re-loading your save-game. Unfortunately, this title requires that you save by visiting wall-mounted "phones" in-game.

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.
