Well, I rarely seem to have time for any hobby stuff these days, but I just had to make some time to check out CA's latest release ALIEN: ISOLATION
I'm not going to give away any "spoilers", mainly because I haven't played far enough into it to be able to do that. The atmosphere is simply awesome - it is perfect Alien movie design combined with Jeff van Dyck's masterful sound direction.
The main story has you playing Ripley's daughter heading to a space station in hope of finding out what happened to her. It's pace matches the original movie perfectly i.e. slow and creepy... you very much feel like you're living a movie experience. But for those that want straight into the action, there are a couple of game modes that are sure to set the pulse racing, including one where you're back in the original Alien movie playing as Ripley herself from a scene towards the end of the movie!
Yeah yeah, talk is cheap, so let's see the shiny shiny... here's me playing the first section of the storyline up to "first contact" with the beast (and I don't mean my neighbour's uncle!)...
