[Xbox One] Alien: Isolation - £7.50 - Xbox Store

Found 10th Sep 2017
I know it's in the weekly Deals with Gold, but I've finally decided to drop on this. There's two days left and I think it's a bit of a bargain, if not the highlight.

Discover the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation, a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. Fifteen years after the events of Alien™, Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda enters a desperate battle for survival, on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother's disappearance.

As Amanda, you will navigate through an increasingly volatile world as you find yourself confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien.

Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive.

Stick with it. Once you overcome the constant dread and get to grips with the game engine (use those decoys!) you start to get into it. The hospital is nails but after that it does get a little easier!

I've just started playing this in VR on the PC using the MotherVR mod. It works surprisingly well and if you think it's jumpy in 2D, it's a whole new level in VR!

Lies all lies. You never get used to it hahahaha
The only game I couldn't complete due to bricking it
I put off playing this game for about 2 years.....really stupid decision. Great game. Can't rate it highly enough. Should've played it on the highest difficulty, but normal was enough for me and my heart couldn't take another play through. The Xenomorph is terrifying. The atmosphere is like the original Ridley Scott. There's no need for the DLC. Adds very little to it. £7.50 is a good price fornthe base game if you can't find a cheaper disc copy. Heat added.
For all its faults it's actually an incredibly good game. It's a bit long and bit repetitive, but creates so much tension. I haven't completed it yet, stopped playing for a while and now I'm too scared to go back. Ah well, I have plenty more games to work through
I bought this and was too scared to play it! Made it through around 5 hours and realised I couldn't relax.
I also loved this game. Never has spending 15 mins hiding in a locker holding my breath being so exciting!

i think your also the only person to complain about a game being long.

Forgot I bought this on PC. Have a vive at work. Is it fully playable with the mod? I thought this was supposed to have vr support built in?!
I'm tempted to re-buy games I already own on disc for these prices. One of the main reasons I didn't play much of this is the faff of disc swapping.

Then I assume that you haven't seen/read any reviews of that game because virtually every review says that the game drags on for too long.

Pretty much, yes.

It's a great idea for a small 3 hour indie game - but I'm with you. It just dragged on after a few hours and becomes stale pretty quickly.
And yes, the alien got very predictable with its smart (not that smart) AI.
someone please help? How do I share a deal from app, can't find any red button to share a deal

You would WANT to??? Given the reviews on here, you might need some adult Pampers!!

Dont think mothervr mod supports rift yet.
Fun game but not for the faint hearted ;-)

Hilarious! I'm such a coward - Iwant but I'm not man enough
How gamespot.com awarded this game only 6/10 is beyond me. I lost a lot of respect for them after that. Especially since they awarded Call of Duty Ghosts 8/10.

Currently, it just has Rift support (albeit at alpha - still very much playable though). I believe the developer is working on or planning to work on Vice support too.

It was one of the main reasons I bought a Rift after already owning a PSVR. The recent Curry's PC World deal listed on here made it a very easy decision in the end!

reviews dont really mean anything to me a lot of games i bought have bad reviews but that doesnt mean i think there bad. I dont sit and pick apart games like the reviewers do i prefer to just play them. If im forking out for a game i aint gunna complain if it takes me 3 months to finish it but different strokes for different folks.

I was merely saying that plenty of people are saying that it's a few hours too long. If you don't like reviews, you can check that on Steam too.

I agree that game length doesn't translate to quality. Short or long can be good, but if the game is structured in a way that it makes finishing it a chore, then that's not good (looking at you Mafia 3).
