At the time of writing, Alien: Isolation is available for $49.99 on Steam. Since there are few great horror games, I’d say Isolation is decently priced. The campaign takes between 10 hours to 30, depending on how many times you die.
I am pleasantly surprised by Alien: Isolation. Despite its flaws, and there are quite a few, it still stands as one of the best survival-horror games in recent memory. I don’t know if that’s a testament of Creative Assembly’s achievement, if the genre suffered a bit in recent memory. Yeah, the advent of YouTube might have increased the number of titles available, but only a few get the atmosphere just right.
I am happy to say, Alien Isolation is one such game, and my faith in the Alien franchise is finally restored.
