Podcast: ‘ALIEN ISOLATION’ Video Game Review

Last October, video game developer Creative Assembly gave Agents of Geek a PS4 copy of their survival horror game, Alien Isolation. I started it that evening with the full intention of finishing it and my review within a reasonable time frame. I believe I’ve blown right past what’s generally acceptable, and I want to come out and say I am truly sorry for the utter lateness of this review.

That said, I decided to do an entire episode on my podcast, Intro to Geek, dedicated solely to my experience. Without further ado, there’s my Alien Isolation video game review. [Disclaimer: I think I swear in this one. Maybe once or twice, I can’t remember.]

PLOT SUMMARY

“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.”

Alien Isolation is available now for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC at your local video game store, or anywhere video games are sold. 

BONUS: Here are a few reaction clips of my friends and I playing the video game.
