Alien: Isolation is a first-person action survival-horror, based on the Alien film series and taking place 15 years after the events of the 1979 Alien movie. The game places an emphasis on stealth as the player must avoid the alien either by hiding or outsmarting it, while completing objectives and facing other enemies such as humans and androids.
Ellen Ripley is informed by a member of the Weyland-Yutani corporation that the flight recorder from the Nostromo ship has been located and held on Sevastopol, a remote space station. Ripley joins a team sent to retrieve the recorder and learn the fate of her missing mother, only to find the Sevastopol station out of control with an alien on board.
Alien: Isolation received positive reviews, with an average score of 79%, praised for its environmental design, the alien's AI, and overall excitement and fun in the survival horror genre.
While the game is certainly no walk in the park, any average player with enough patience and ability to learn the behavior of the alien can obtain the platinum. While it's possible to unlock nearly all the trophies in one playthrough, it's recommended doing it in at least two, if not three, which includes a run on Hard mode, not dying, as well as kill-related trophies, finding collectibles, and a few other miscellaneous ones.
Expect roughly 30 hours on this puppy.
While it's technically possible to obtain the platinum after one playthrough and some mopping-up, it can cause quite an amount of frustration. As a result, we recommend completing it in at least two, if not three.
If you're taking our advice, then you should start on a Hard playthrough, in order to earn the Survivor trophy. Despite Nightmare being the hardest difficulty setting, the trophy will unlock after completing your game on Hard. Also, during this stage, you should focus on avoiding killing the humans, for the Mercy Or Prudence? trophy, since you'll mainly be playing in stealth anyway. With all the story-related trophies included, you should unlock a good percentage after your first playthrough.
During your second playthrough, you can work on finding all the collectibles, as well as earn the kill-related trophies, and any other miscellaneous ones along the way. Beating the game without dying can also be done during this playthrough if you want, though we recommend saving that for a third and final playthrough.
Lastly, if you're taking our advice, you can do another Easy run, this time your goal is avoiding death. If you happen to die, quickly pause and reload your previous game. This will earn you both the One Shot trophy, as well as Hide Run Survive, and Mind Your Step, if you haven't unlocked them already.
