Alien: Isolation Gameplay Footage Looks Very Promising

Having just posted the news that SEGA and Creative Assembly today announced Alien: Isolation, a first-person horror-survival game, I sat down to watch the first proper gameplay footage of the game. Having said that my interested was certainly piqued in the initial post you can now count me as cautiously optimistic.

The gameplay shown demonstrates that the developers do indeed understand what made Ridleys Scott’s 1979 film so exhilarating and terrifying. You’re trapped alone on a station being hunted by a single Xenomorph whom you cannot take head on. ¬†Should you encounter the beast your only option is to hide, and then make a break for it when you think it won’t be able to see or hear you.

In essence then, Isolation is doing everything right thus far. Aliens: Colonial Marines turned the chilling Xenomorphs into a horde of enemies to be gunned down, their AI making them a laughable foe at best, but in Isolation there’s just one alien chasing you, and it’s presented in a chilling light. You can’t fight this thing. You can’t take it on. You can only run.

It’s pretty intense stuff, but like the Inside Xbox team I do question whether the developers will be able to pace the game correctly.Only time will tell.

About Baden Ronie

I always hate writing about myself, it's such a pain in the ass to know where I should start. I'm twenty-two years young and love to play, as you may have already guessed. When WolfsGamingBlog.com started up it was simply because I found writing to be a good form of stress relief for when my Cystic Fibrosis was getting me down or simply because I had been having a bad week. When I started writing I never dreamed that people would actually read it, or that it would ever get this big. It's mind boggling. My writing isn't the best, but through trial, error and the comments of readers I strive to improve it so I can provide fair reviews. My ultimate goal is to prove that not everyone in the gaming media are corrupt idiots intent on delivering false reviews. Other than that I'm a fully qualified lifeguard and used to teach first-aid and life-saving skills to kids. What more is there to say? Hmmm, well I love music, reading and films. I'm a drummer, enjoy going swimming and tend to get distracted by shiny objects. Is that a fifty-pence?
