    finished it on the highest difficulty without dieng the whole campaign for 2 achievements :c

    it gets easier when you understand the game
    But I love this game very much and feel like it's a 1 of a kind game.

    Had rated is 99/100, -1 cause i kept dieng like 30 times in the begin when i didn't get it :p

    Agreed, too bad a sequel seems unlikely due to lower than expected sales. :(

    The only annoying thing I found in the game was that it forces you to "backtrack" "the long way" around a maps a few times. And as with many survival games, figuring out what to do. It's like the RE puzzles but not puzzley.

    Frankly, I'm kind of glad the whole game isn't you vs Alien because those levels are intense.

    As far as reviews, I've stopped caring what IGN reviews games. IF you've been to their site in the past few years, it's so much advertiser-funded articles; so I don't believe a word they say. They're literally a 3rd party marketing department now. The writings on the wall when they've complained about games being too hard.

    Also, they recently got sold to another company and a number of people quit, so they promoted their "B team."

    For anyone who played the DLC, are they worth it?

    I use to visit IGN and other big ones. I still look at their scores, but every time I hear a reviewer take points off in a Horror survival game for being hard and too few save points, makes me question their tastes and therefore review score.

    With Alien Isolation, you had a lot score the game 8/10+ then one or two bigger sites give it more like 6/10. I can understand some reviewers might not like this style of game, but they're reviewers. They should be able to appropriate it enough to review it for all people.

    Right now, I like Eurogamer reviews, imho.

    Even though I have played this game previously up to chapter 15 at 60 frames at all times, for some reason the frames will drop into the 30s and stay there permanently. It fixes on game restart or pc restart.

    Doed that sound like some kind of driver issue because I just upgraded driver as it happened with the one I previously had and it didn't fix it.

    Despite this game over staying its welcome and having probably some of the most annoying gameplay ive ever experienced in a game, im determined to finish it.

    However, i keep getting some gfx glitch where after a few seconds, the entire screen goes black with only a few lights still visible with audio still playing in the background.

    Does anyone have a fix for this?

    This one, seriously: threads like this, and posts in the Screenshot and Video dumps are way more helpful than "actual" reviews. If there's a game that I'm interested in but is somehow not mentioned here, I'll go sniff around other forums before I'll visit a review site. Maybe I just haven't yet found a good one?

    This works insanely well. hopefully we'll see more of these TAA mods for other games.

    Some screens by the dev (it doesnt look as blurry in game, theres sharpening filter that can be adjusted):

    Hi, author here :D

    It's specific to Alien: Isolation, but the techniques used to make it and parts of the code can be translated to other DX11 games. Feel free to fork the code on github!

    If you have Alien: Isolation installed via Steam

    Run aliasIsolationInjector.exe, then adjust video settings as described below.

    If Steam is running, the mod will inject itself into it, and then launch the game. Then injection into Steam is necessary, as it is actually the Steam.exe process which launches the game. Even if AI.exe is started directly, it communicates with Steam, and then exits immediately, allowing Steam to launch it. In order to hook into the game, Alias Isolation hooks into Steam, and intercepts its CreateProcessW call, subsequently injecting itself into the child process. The only binaries that are injected into are Steam.exe and AI.exe.

    In order to remove the hook from Steam, run detachAll.cmd.
    If you have a non-Steam version of Alien: Isolation

    You need to point the injector to where the game is installed. This can be done by launching aliasIsolationInjector.exe with the install directory of the game as a parameter, for example:

    aliasIsolationInjector.exe "C:\games\Alien Isolation"

    Where "C:\games\Alien Isolation" is the directory containing AI.exe. No trailing backslash, please.

    If no parameters are passed to the injector, it will read them from a file called args.cfg.

    What happened to this guide? It had some tweaks for SKIN_SHADING and RADIOSITY.
