It’s been 15 years since the events of the original Alien Movie. In Alien Isolation, you play as Ellen Ripley’s daughter Amanda. Still looking for answers about her mother’s disappearance, Amanda becomes stranded on the space station Sevastopol. She’s spent most of her life looking for answers, and now she’s found them.
The trailer looks great. But, is the game good? Reviews have leaned positive, with some cheering its sound design and pacing. Others lament its distant save points and frustrating AI. The Metacritic score stands at 79.
I’m hoping to get my hands on it later this week. If I can stop chopping heads off in Shadow of Mordor that is.
