ALIEN Isolation

Well, since I cant play FC4 at the moment I thought I'd load up this and give it a try. I've been hearing that it can be a pretty scary experience in the first half of the game, (up to 10 hours I think), whereas in the last half it gets a little repetitious.

I wonder how the scares compare to the FEAR games.

Re: ALIEN Isolation

Well this plays more like DOOM 3 than FEAR. Nice use of lighting. Its all very linear but I'll hold off judging it until a bit later.

If I hadnt seen the movies years ago and engraved the Alien creature into my subconscious then I think I'd be asking "what the heck is going on" since I've been playing this for ages with no action yet. But i can hear slithering sounds all around me and can guess whats coming!
I've just teamed up with some NPC and we're about to explore further. I dont actually trust this fellow but the game doesnt give me any choices.

Re: ALIEN Isolation

Heh, I loaded up this game to see if it holds up after all this time. Playing at 4K.
I'm happy to report that its still terrifying and looks and sounds fantastic.
Some great immersion. I still wish for a quick save, although I understand why it wasnt included in this game.

I'm experimenting with lower difficulty. I read somewhere that the Alien has a wider patrol area on lower difficulty. I really hate that stupid behaviour where it keeps leaving and returning to the room we're hiding in, over and over.

When the alien is chasing you its terrifying, but I still believe the synths are more scary, even though the'yre slower.
