They've been creating a lot of hype over Isolation over the past few months, hope the game lives up to it. From what I've seen so far, it looks totally awesome.

I've never played an Alien game because of the negative feedback I get when I discuss it, but this one looks really good.

Can't wait to turn off the lights, fire up the Xbox One, and have some good frights with this one.

On my radar for sure.

I created a cast out of plaster once.

I think the game with the best facial animations is to date LA Noir but I recently replayed Silent Hill 3 and to my surprise the facial animations in that game are impressive as well.

looks cool, I really hope this game will do the Alien games justice, especially AVP2 !

I didn't know there'd be cutscenes, while I like games that are cutscene-less, this does from a visual and sound perspective, seem very, very good. I don't care how crappy the past games have been in the series, I am really excited for this.

Sega/CA needs to invest more in facial animation technology, all the big companies are doing it and it will payoff in the long run.

That 1st actor looks REALLY unrealistic in engine, even tho you have modelled a real person. You should have cast somebody who didn't look so wierd in real life. 


Oh the irony.

"Learn how SEGA went about creating the cast for Alien: Isolation..."

I could've sworn SEGA was the publisher for this game rather than the developer (Creative Assembly).  Wouldn't CA be the one going about "creating the cast"?

A lot of this sounds real dumb.

"In order to tell the story we needed our characters to be believable. So we took the decision to cast real people."


Like every AAA game?

Best looking pre-alpha I think iv'e seen, this looks like it's the Alien game I've been waiting for, a alien horror game seems like the right step for a Alien game, can't wait to see more.

This could turn out to be really good. Fingers crossed.

Lots of British people. I know this is being made in England, its just I hope that casting real people, doesn't limit the amount of diversity in the characters. As much as I love british people.

Here is what I like about CA, this is their sole game they are working on. This team is not working on multiple games. They are looking to prove themselves and they have a desire(from what i've seen in the behind the scenes footage). This makes me feel much better about the outcome of this game. However, because it's going to be a story telling stealth survival horror game, it still won't get the hype it should. 


I'm looking forward to this as a survival horror fan and an Aliens fan, but not a lot of players like a stealth game. I do, if executed correctly. Outlast was a great game, fans in the genre rate it what it deserve, while others say poor comments about it. 


This game has a lot going for it. It's has a dedicated and passionate team, it comes out during the best time of the year when people are most hyped for a horror genre title, the sound and visuals are excellently crafted and executed in these sneak peaks and demos. I can't wait for this, I hope they incorporate something to improve the replay

Amanda Ripley ... wait ... her daughter? Talk about a forced and convenient plot element. If they make choices like that, I can't see the other design choices going well.

I really want this to be good but Aliens: Colonial Marines had a lot of hype surrounding it and turned it to be so bad, so I'm not overly optimistic

You only heard two characters talk, so I don't know where you got that from. They may cast British actors, but it's not as if a character can't be something else.

@MXVIII  LMAO, the best selling game in the gaming industry loved by many was made by British people it's called GTAV, it was made in Edinbrugh Scotland at the Rockstar headquarters, they had more than enough diversity of characters in GTAV, don't be so ignorant next time you decide to comment mate.

@vallee05  Well said but what you said at the end there with the replay ability of the game mate, the Alien is not scripted it never dose the same thing twice so there should be alot of replay value in this game if true.

This seems like the first time you've ever read this news, and you hadn't thought it through yet. I at first was turned off by it, but as I saw more news on the game, it became clear it's fine. Plus, how does it seems forced, or not make sense that her daughter would come look for her?

@MooncalfReviews What's so forced about her daughter being the main protagonist? She gets mentioned in Aliens (Director's Cut), so it's not like they pulled her out of thin air.

She is very likely going to be looking for clues on how her mother disappeared so it's not going to be THAT surprising, if she ends up running into another Alien problem.

I don't understand how that would be a forced or convient plot element, whatever you're even trying to express with that statement.

@MooncalfReviews  Not necessarily; the time between Alien and it's sequel is pretty ripe for a story starring Ripley's daughter if you ask me. I'm hoping and praying that the game delivers on it's promises where Colonial Marines could not.

@MooncalfReviews  a forced and convenient plot element? i dont think you understand how story telling actually works.

@eze_sl89  I played the demo of this game at EGX a few months back and if the rest of the game is like that demo then I doubt there will be much disappointment among gamers and Alien fans. I was quite impressed and me being impressed is not something that comes easily nowadays.

@jayjay444 While that is true when was the last GTA that was based in England or had a majority of British actors?


The point he was making is that British actors have a very, (distinct) accent that is not appealing to everyone.

@jayjay444 @vallee05I'd replay it, just to see what the alien does diffrently, and again, and again after that. I think tht's one of the things that adds such replay value to TES/Fallout too.
