Alien: Isolation – Exciting and boring at the same time




Typically games that films derived unsuccessful. Still, there are some films and series that continue to care for inspiration even though not all games that are based prove to be successful. The Lord of the Rings remains popular and Batman too. The various Alien movies continue to inspire developers and publishers, despite the many mediocre games out there are derived. With Aliens: Colonial Marines, the shooter of 2013, as recent low.

Publisher Sega had after Colonial Marines apparently still confident enough in the series, because less than one and a half years later, he comes up with Alien: Isolation. Not that both games are comparable; in the Colonial Marines game was simply shoot at anything that moves. In Alien: Isolation is very unwise; it is even a guarantee of an equally gruesome as early death.
Open door

The Creative Assembly, the British studio that you mostly know from the Total War series, Alien: Isolation made a game where you just have to shoot as much as possible. Not only that; basically you have to go every confrontation as much as possible out of the way. Only then can you make the most of the chance to make it out alive. Upon That is also the goal of the game; stay alive, amid the many dangers on board a hostile spaceship. That sounds like a truism, but it’s more difficult and less obvious than usual.

The studio is taking a good look at especially the first film. That is not a guarantee of success; Gearbox Software did after all. Both studios were allowed to dive into the archives of film company 20th Century Fox and the original sketches, props and sound recordings of Ridley Scott and his associates use. At Colonial Marines that led to an uninspired game. The Brits do a lot better.
