Alien: Isolation is a survival-horror game, that takes place between the movies Alien and Aliens, as Amanda Ripley - Ellen's daugther - trying to find out what happened to her lost mother...

One day he gets an information about the flight recorder of the Nostromo, people have found it and currently it's on the Sevastopol space station. She and a few people go to the station, not expecting that the station has some serious problem...

On this page, I collect some of the interesting stuff I could find of Alien: Isolation. It is my all time favorite game currently, since in its quality is unparralelled, even 5 years after its release.


Updated: 2020/09/16 - updated to the current design, and added Gab Smolders' playthroughs. I also reordered the sections, put let's plays first.

Media

The sounds of Alien: Isolation
Straight from the game, here is many GBs of sounds. The files are in ogg format, and most stuff are in its own folder, like the sounds of the alien, or the mission ambient sounds. Worth the download, I cannot wait for creating some nice ringtones from it!

Alien:Isolation book
The book has been release last year, and I am currently reading it.

Alien: Isolation Digital series
"Fifteen years after her mother disappeared on the deep space towing ship Nostromo, Amanda Ripley travels to a remote space station that may hold clues to her mother's fate. But disaster strikes as she arrives at her destination. Watch all seven episodes of the Alien: Isolation digital series exclusively on IGN."

This is an interesting attempt to create the story in in-game engine, cutscenes, that most of the time just feels and looks weird. Not too good, to be honest.

Alien: Isolation 1440p dual monitor wallpapers (plus another pack) Very nice wallpapers for dual monitors (source: reddit).

Mods

Couple of mods that can be useful, if you find the game too hard or easy.

Alien: Isolation Mod Tools
A modding toolkit for Alien: Isolation that covers a wide range of game content and configurations.

Alien ignores Amanda
Just as the titles says, the Alien won't attack you.

Unpredictable Alien Mod
One of the most popular mod. People complaining about cheating AI, and they use this to make the Alien more unpredictable. But it is already unpredictable. Unless the mod make her come out when it's an android section. Now that would be truely unpredictable.

Experience

Alien: Isolation subreddit
Friendly community of the game. Much better than Steam forum, where people still bitch about the "cheating" AI.

Alien: Isolation with MotherVR 0.8 beta impressions
A video with MotherVR. Looks pretty awesome and convincing. It's a no spoiler video, created in survival mode. Still, the person who played in this video clearly needed a new underwear, and some oxygen after that. :)

MotherVR
This is the program itself. If you have a VR, try it!

Best let's plays

These are the best I watched mostly or fully. Some of them are entertaining, but others are for learning too. Not in any order.

Gab Smolders' playthroughs

I have found her recently, and I really like her videos. It's also nice to see another viewpoint too. She knows Japanese and complemented the signs early on, and she also likes Ripley (has similar reactions to her). Plus she is funny, that intro just made me laugh. :)

She played the game 3 times so far, and all of them are on youtube. Her first playthrought the PS4 version on normal difficulty (playlist), and then her 2nd playthrough on Hard (playlist), then her 3rd playthrough on Nightmare mode (playlist)

Alien: Isolation (PC) - No Damage Nightmare, No Human Kills, All Blueprints (one video)

An almost 5 hour playthrough of Alien: Isolation on the hardest difficulty, with no damage taken, no kills and all blueprints collected. It has commentary, but not every time. Worth watching, the commentary is useful if you want to play the game on hard/nightmare.

Alien: Isolation walkthrough 01 (Hard, All collectibles, No commentary ✔) PC

From the comment section:

"This could require my attention. A walkthrough that'll get to the bottom of this. A player who's not becoming hysterical and who doesn't forget the little details while we're getting the big picture. And who doesn't run over the levels, because he knows that running causes accidents. This is clearly not a waste of valuable company time. And I've got all day you know."

Probably one of the most thorough Alien: Isolation playthrough.

Infesord's Nightmare playthrough with commentary (PC)

This is my favorite playthrough of Alien: Isolation, since he is very funny, not over the top, and actually gives insight to some of the situations that we can be in, if we play the game. If you don't know, Nightmare mode was added later to the game, and it has no maps, the motion detector is totally unreliable, the Alien is even smarter, and you have very, very, limited resources. It's a long playthrough since he it has everything, from collectables, and awesome death scenes! Worth to watch it, if you are already completed the game.

Let's Play Alien: Isolation - Eurogamer (PS4)

Two funny Eurogamer person plays through Alien: Isolation (playlist). Don't worry, after first video they are properly turned off the light. It's not their first playthrough, so I advise you watch it, if you already played through Alien: Isolation.

Famous reviews

These are the reviews that are famous within the community, because they are missleading and downright damaging. You don't have to be professional to play this game, I saw streamers do it who are not really stealth game players and they still finished it.
