    Bought and installed this last night.

    Very good so far, I'm just at the part with the first Alien cut scene, where you see the Alien in person. I get very tense whilst playing, definitely not a game I'll be playing while in the house on my own lol

    Did anyone else take ages to get passed the part with the 4 humans where you've got to find the data cell to open the door? I just kept getting shot and killed... Finally figured out to lure them out and pick them off one by one, but still. Kinda hard to say I have the game on "easy", or maybe I'm just shockingly poor at this game lol

    Quick tip for anyone whose not played the game yet: Make sure you have empty bowels BEFORE you start...

    I love this game but the Joe's really ruin it for me. I can't get anywhere without them finding me and killing me. I am at the point where I am to meet up with others from my group and cannot reach them without running into Joe's all over the place.

    I have tried sneaking, hiding, shooting them and running but nothing works. In fact I never see the Alien, just the Joe's.

    Someone please make a mod to remove those damn things so it is just me and the Alien.

    The game would lose a lot of it's tension if the Working Joes were removed. Would also make a lot of the world really boring.

    Not really, the Alien presence would make up for it. I have only seen the Alien once and I see a Joe every 2 minutes.

    Play more of it before making that statement.
    Without the Joes, there are lots of areas of the game where the tension would be completely gone.

    And really, the Joes are not hard to avoid. And they are pretty easy to deal with if they spot you.

    Played through this game and loved it. I'm not sure why reviewers said it was too long. I thought it was the perfect length but I still want more. Glad to see a game like this go against the current trends in gaming.

    As for the Joes, they added a lot to the game. I tried to avoid them as much as I could but the stun baton and a wrench beating got me out of a few bad situations.

    Why do you have the shadow map resolution set so low? You've got shadow acne everywhere in that pic.

    i have to say again, this is one of the best atmospheric games i've played in a long while, i recommend it to everyone of the scifi horror stealth first person shooter genre, amazing game.

    Just finished this game - on Hard, no less. Man, it's intense.

    As others have pointed out, it's one of the most atmospheric games I've ever played.

    The game gets a bit "tropey" in the second half, but it's just a cool world to explore. You think the game is going to end at like 5 different times, but it keeps going.

    Any reviewer that gave this game less than 8/10 is a dumb.

    IGN scored it 5.9 out of 10

    Gamespot scored it 6 out of 10

    Then again it's IGN and Gamespot.

    I score this game 9 out of 10.... minus one point for being ****ing scary lol.

    Top game, but i feel like some of the levels overstayed their welcome. Im not going to go as far as IGN or GS and say that the game was too long, but more that there was a pacing issue with playing hide and seek vs the more actiony bits.

    Unfortunately I was on vacation without regular internet access during steam summer sale, so I couldn't get it :D

    I'm just hope for something that feels... different that the other, more or less generic stuff we get these days.

    change of pace is never an issue in this game, it gets frustrating for you playing hide and seek andwaiting so the levels kind of seems a bit long, but its satisfying a lot. im not gonna start talking about the atmosphere in this game, it is second to none.

    I'm no good at this game, even on easiest difficulty, I just can't not seem to remember about air vents above me when I have androids in front and behind me lol

    Years of late night gaming are taking their tool on your brain :p Time for gaming retirement plan, make children while you still can ;)

    jk, was feeling the same last year while playing Alien Isolation, couldn't pass few things so I had to call for help from my 13 y.o. son. He simply nailed those levels, I was like WTF kid!?, same way like me 30 years ago playing Pac-Man :( Guess (hope so) I was tired that evening, iirc A:I was the one of the last games I've played last year after making decision to quit gaming for some time until something worthy comes out. Feeling completely rusty not gaming at all after all these months od gaming-diet behind me, one more year without gaming and I'll be completely fcked up beyond return point. But now at least I'm "gaming" more on the other side of the room :D

    lol, I'd rather be terrible at games, than have kids :D

    Not my idea of fun at all

    But yea, kids are always better at things like this than us, just like we were better at these type of things than our parents

    Never really been a massive gamer though, building the machines is more fun for me
