So after the abomination that was Aliens: Colonial Marines we are getting another Alien game. Personally, Isolation looks very promising but yet so did Colonial Marines.
But yet I shall keep my optimism because I honestly can't get rid of it when there is an Alien game coming out.

Also I very much like how the Alien isn't the only enemy, throughout the space station there is many humans and androids that you have no idea if they will be friendly or hostile.

Anyway, i'm pretty excited for this game.

Awesome Trailer

Awesome Gameplay

Thanks for sharing.
So why was the Colonial Marines games so bad? I've never played it so I'm just interested to know why you thought it was so bad.

*is interested in such an answer as well*

Personally, me and my boyfriend both still enjoy Aliens: Colonial Marines quite a bit; we don't get the negative responses to it. To be honest, the Bug Hunt DLC for it is great fun and a good challenge. The one campaign DLC as well was fairly look if you can look past the few loose threads of the plot.

So yeah, I'd like to hear why you didn't like it, Thecoolalien. Just kind of curious.
(I've seen way too many threads on Steam where people bash it simply because the graphics look a bit different than what they thought they were promised.)

And yes, I agree, Isolation really does look pretty good for a singleplayer horror.

I personally thought the story was pretty boring and the gameplay was very poor as well. Also the a.i. had a lot of problems as well, the aliens just charge at you blindly. Also the animations are pretty bad. Overall it was just a disappointment for me.

Anywho, Alien Isolation has been released recently and the reception is extremely positive. I can't wait to get it, it finally seems like the Alien game that I have always wanted.

I've seen some screenshots and read a short article about the Isolation game - it definitely looks like something I'd love to try out. Unfortunately, after seeing the required specs, it seems I'll have to wait until I upgrade my laptop.

It's a great game - the best to come out these franchises. It's also the scariest game I've ever played. Creepy atmosphere, amazing fan service. But it is a hard game - you will be killed a lot.

I just bought the game a few days ago and so far it's pretty great. The Alien is truly terrifying and the Synthetic "working joes" are also extremely creepy. Pretty much everything Darkness said is true.

A bad thing though is that i'm playing on PS3 and it almost seems like the PS3 can't handle the game very well. I've experienced frame rate drops occasionally and some things don't load properly and pop in. Also my loading times are pretty long and that can be pretty annoying, especially for a game where you die so often. I feel like this probably doesn't happen on next gen consoles and powerful computers, but I don't know.

Also this game can be pretty frustrating at parts, (I'm playing on the hardest difficulty) if the Alien sees you you are pretty much dead. The synthetics are also very hard to kill without an emp and if there is more than 1 attacking you, and you are cornered then you are also pretty much dead. The human survivors are pretty easy compared to the synthetics and Alien. Two hits with the melee weapon kills one human.

The game is pretty awesome so far, other than the frame rate drops, load times, and pop ins, it's excellent. The game may be frustrating but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I say you all should get it as soon as possible.
