Alien: Isolation Nintendo Switch Trailer
Out of the gate, this is a much better sequel to Alien than Prometheus. It recreates the dread and horror of Alien, with the dark long hallways and the creeks of metal. The soundtrack is minimal, with sound effects taking over. This is a scary game, especially when you crouch behind a chair and hear the Alien go past you. I didn’t even look, choosing to wait until I couldn’t hear him anymore.
This version includes all the DLC and some game modes. The port is excellent, when docked I was getting 30fps. Motion control and HD rumble support were also added. The game looks great with assets looking polished and the light in the rooms is just right for a horror game.
Controls are simple to pick up, due to the simplicity of the game. You have a movement sector, which is your main item. You can pick up ammo, but this isn’t that kind of game.
The fault of the game though is the device it’s on. You want to play this at home, in the dark. This isn’t the kinda game you take out on the train and play for 10 mins.
Overall, Alien: Isolation on Nintendo Switch is a great port and looks great on the Switch. But you almost have to wonder if this game is best played on the Switch when you can grab it on the PS4 or Xbox for less.
