Ambiguous Sentence[edit]

"Unlike most other video game adaptations of the Alien franchise, Alien: Isolation features only one Alien throughout its duration that cannot be killed" This sentence is really ambiguous. Does it only feature one Alien and it can not be killed? Or are there lots of aliens but only one of them can't be killed. Could someone clean this up? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 158.28.225.238 (talk) 18:22, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

One Alien, that stalks the sounds the player makes throughout the game. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.227.72.139 (talk) 16:38, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

Writing style[edit]

The entire reviews section could really benefit from a clean up, and a number of direct sources. As it is, the article is editorializing, rather than citing others' editorialzing. It's also reasonably awkwardly written. I did some basic grammar clean up, but it could certainly use a polishing.

Also, I assume that alien should not be capitalized except when refering to the game or the movie. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.112.87.114 (talk) 15:25, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

Conspiracy Or Foofaraw?[edit]

It has been noticed that American gaming websites have significantly under-scored Alien Isolation in comparison to the rest of the world, so much so that VideoGamerTV has produced a spoof video employing an 'American' level of difficulty which reduces the game to run and gun. However, Amercian gamers on the whole enjoyed the game immensely, unfortunately the same cannot be said of its gaming media. In closing, it looks like the old divisive argument about which film is better Alien or Aliens has transferred to gaming. Twobells (talk) 13:30, 10 October 2014 (UTC)

Probably Creative Assembly and publisher Sega did not pay the appropriate bribes to reviewers and were punished accordingly. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.60.35.112 (talk) 01:35, 16 October 2014 (UTC)

151.227.72.139 (talk) 16:40, 24 October 2014 (UTC) I have removed this whole segment as is filled with non helpful information plus reflects negatively on a fantastic game. 151.227.72.139 (talk) 16:40, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

PC Gamer article[edit]

A three page article on the making of the game was just posted on PC Gamer. It will probably have some valuable information which could be used to expand this article. BlookerG talk 22:20, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Survival horror[edit]

Shouldn't it be put in the template that this is a survival horror? I haven't played it myself, but it seems like it should fall under that category. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.9.186.60 (talk) 03:36, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
