Alien: Isolation Review (IGN)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kc1MwlTwv3E


I've never had a problem with Ryan's reviews and this is his opinion and he's entitled to it. The game isn't even out yet, so naturally I can't say anything about the game play. But I find it somewhat troubling that he would give the game a horrible rating of 5.2 or whatever it was. I've never seen such a low rating game giving by IGN. They are notorious these days for giving "less than stellar" games a good grade. Most other sites that have the game for review are averaging around 8 out of 10, which is what I was expecting. Although Gamespot gave it a 6. I'm gonna wait to see what the consensus is of paying costumers, not those that get the game for free, before I make up my mind on getting the game or not.

Regardless of rating, it looks pretty cool.  Except for the people, though I don't imagine they last very long anyways.

Spoiler warning, but here's 10 minutes of scenes from the opening of the game... cut down,  of course, I'm hoping that the actual game doesn't start to abruptly.  It's off-putting the way it's done.

But man oh man, does it look like the movie!  I can't wait to see the Nostromo expansion pack with the original cast.

I actually watched a little bit today on Twitch. But I ended up turning it off about a few minutes in....not because it sucked, but spoilers. I will be getting this game for sure. When? I dunno.

It sounds like this game would be hard to spoil because it's so freaking random.  The Alien WILL kill you, it just depends on when and where.

It's not so much 'story' that will spoil it. I want to discover the environment on my own. Exploring is going to be the best thing about the game for me.
