How bout dem Aliens?

Post by Kingpin »

Well, for the past 5 months, I have been waiting for the masterpiece videogame on the Alien franchise, known as Alien: Isolation. With promises to have intelligent AI, horrifying thrills, a killer plot, and, most of all, a half-decent game (unlike the predecessor, Aliens: Colonial Marines). However, I looked at IGN's highly negative review of the game, and now I feel very... sad.

Anyone have the game yet? Any thoughts?

I'm super excited to play the game, but I don't yet have any money to buy it. D:

By the way, to anyone who reads this, don't bother reading/watching IGN's stupid review of the game. The reviewer clearly did not know what he was talking about and even basically admitted it in the (text) review.

Huh. Well, I think that I might get Shadow of Mordor when it comes out on the 360 instead; it's been getting great reviews. Looks like Assassin's Creed meets Lord of the Rings with the Arkham franchise combat.

I'm waiting until the price goes down....I'm cheap like that.....but it looks really good. It's nice to see a movie game do this well, and from what I've heard it should take the bad colonial marines taste out of your mouth.

Agreed. In Colonial Marines, it was just the same thing over and over, not to mention shabby graphics and the WORST MP I have seen in a game. Ever.

Well, at least we got to use harsh language. (waits for someone to get it)
