About This Game
Alien: Isolation is a first-person stealth survival horror video game. The Creative Assembly described Alien: Isolation as a survival horror game, and with that in mind they designed the game as close to Ridley Scott’s Alien: The Eighth Passenger, as opposed to Aliens: The Return of James Cameron, which It is more action oriented.
Unlike most other games in the franchise, in Alien: Isolation there is only one xenomorph for most of the game, and it cannot be killed, requiring the player to use stealth tactics to survive.
Although the game features some weapons, these are only lethal against humans and androids. Instead of following a predetermined path, the xenomorph’s artificial intelligence has been programmed to actively hunt the player using their sight, hearing, and scent.
