What do you guys think about Alien: Isolation?

I can see the hype for it. And it looks like a distillation of the horror-survival formula. But I'm concerned whether this revolutionary "Alien A.I." will live up to its hype.

They said "to f*** with the canon", so I say "to f*** with the game".

Generic effort to cash-in on Amnesia's appeal to casuals. I bet playing AvP ('99) with the Marine is still scarier than anything this game has to offer.

The environments are too clean. Same with the alien. Just weakens the atmosphere for a horror game. IMO.

Don't know what to think, actually. I love the fact it's an actual Alien game and not AvP (Don't get me wrong. Predator is a great movie, but I hate AvP in general), but I usually suck at survival horror games, so I probably won't get it.

I do like some AvP games, actually, but the movies are horrid, and I'd rather have more Alien-only games.

I remember the last time there was hype for an Alien game.

I hope they never release it.

After CM I'd be a fool not to be skeptical regardless of a developer change. It is a bit early to tell so I reserve judgment but have low expectations.

In theory it could be great. An amnesia style game with a Xenomorph sounds great.

But since it's being done by a major publisher and they can't have games without lots of action, they're sticking in gunfights with clone troopers.

It'll likely not be good at either horror or action and will suck.
