I doubt Isolation will ever be topped. I am a casual gamer and completed the game on novice level. Still, it was challenging, tense and generally exhausting when it was done. I started another play through but got busy with other stuff. I made it through the first few missions and never got back to it. 

What about you?

If you have not played it, you should.

best alien game by miles. brings back the claustrophobic atmosphere of the original film very well. got stuck in a locker for ages coz that dam beast wouldn't go away haha still possible for people to jump n **** themselves from time to time so that's reassuring

I am definitely a casual gamer as well. I have really only played and enjoyed some Call of Duty games, Madden, AVP 3, Colonial Marines, and Isolation. Isolation is BY FAR my favorite game! Movies can (probably) never recapture the feeling that Alien, I guess, causes, or elicits. A video game in that fashion is just a BRILLIANT idea. Whoever pitched the idea of Isolation and whoever ultimately approved it deserve my ever-lasting love and thanks!

It finally finally let me put myself into the world of Alien. I mean, watching the movies is always amazing, but this is truly a unique and awesome experience. I've played all the way through on hard ohhh I don't know, 10-20 times. I think I played through on novice or easy once or twice and actually (somehow) made it about 3/4 of the way through on nightmare mode!

Unfortunately I have made it to the point in which I'll try and play through every couple of months, but I haven't finished a play through in a while (andI always prefer to start over if I haven't played in long time). I guess I have worn it down for a bit. Still, this game is probably going to always be very special to me.

Sometimes the Joes and hazmat Joes were almost worse than the Xenomorph.

Only played it the once, no a PS4 i do not own such a console, i was tempted to get the PS3 version but i would have to dig out my PS3.

Certainly seemed a good game though ;)

I played it on PS3. It was gorgeous and there were no frame rate issues- ran smooth for me the whole way through. Load times were kind of long though.

Im going to confess. Ive yet to play isolation. My crapheap laptop wont handle it, and ive been slow replacing/updating my PC. 

I did watch my Brother play it all the way through when it first came out.. so Ive seen most of the game, just not had the fully immersed experience with it yet!! 



PraetorianModerator2414 XPMar-03-2018 1:21 AM

I did stubbornly play Colonial Marines all the way through to end. I paid top $$ for that friggin thing on pre-order, I was getting my moneys worth!!

Had some good moments, but for the most part was mindless dribble and crappy. You had some random NPC marine tag along with you 90% of the game with a friggin smart-gun....suspense and isolation GONE.

The best part of the game was when you were alone, with no guns, no friendlies and being stalked by nasties

IRaptus Watching is not quite the same in this case. Perhaps you could get a cheap PS3 and the PS3 game used for cheap? I promise a playthrough is worth it. It wore me out psychologically and I would do it again if I had the time.


PraetorianModerator2414 XPMar-03-2018 1:26 AM

I do have a PS3. I should do that yes. I forget it was available on that console and it should be cheap as chips these days. Thanks dk :)

Whats the Nostromo Edition? 


TrilobiteMember8212 XPMar-03-2018 1:35 AM

IDK. The PS3 disc I have might be that one- it was a preorder disc I think. There were some additional missions you could play as different characters and the original actors lent voice tracks. I played one mission as Ripley and had my ass handed to me pretty quickly.  


PraetorianModerator2414 XPMar-03-2018 1:38 AM

Alright Im set. Got the Nostromo Edition. Can't wait!

Like you said, watching is never the same as experiencing it! 


TrilobiteMember8212 XPMar-03-2018 1:43 AM

You will not be disappointed. Frustrated- but not disappointed.


TrilobiteMember8212 XPMar-03-2018 1:56 AM

Just know that like the movie, it is a slow burn. When things get tense, you may be hiding a lot and seeing a lot of feet walk around you. Sounds weird, but it is pretty tense.
