Too bad it took over 5 years for the game to be released. I haven't played it yet but did purchase it when it became available.

Hopefully, all the video footage I've seen is a big mistake and the game plays a lot different to what I saw, otherwise I am not going to enjoy it.

I played the demo for it when it first hit the arcade, and I found it a little too clunky for my tastes. I prefer something like Deadlight, or Alan Wake's American Nightmare in comparison to I Am Alive.

I was super excited to play it, once I did...I was just let down and disappointed lol. I thought it was going to be so much better than it actually turned out to be. :\

I found it to be way too tedious to play. I understand why it was designed that way, but overall I think they made it overly difficult to get around. I ended up getting stuck on the side of a building with no stamina (or whatever) and gave up.

Loved the idea at first. When I tried the demo, I was really impressed how meeting people in the game impacted me.

Unfortunately the clunkyness and some gameplay elements made me decide not to buy it. Which was a shame, because I was really awaiting the game in baited breath for years until it was finally released.

Story-wise I Am Alive is totally my thing. Then I played the demo. Not even for half-off, ever.

Finished the game, just need one last achievement (one day I'll do it). I enjoyed the game, although I can easily see why people wouldn't like it.

Wasn't this game part of a sale recently. I remember seeing it on the sales & specials app.

One of the few arcade games I've played and I was pretty pleased with it.

I just started playing this at the weekend. Loved the demo.

But hmm... I dunno... it's fun in a way but it's a complete pain in the ass in another. The game seems to make it way too overly complicated to do simple things... and the save system is just terrible. It's like it's designed for you to never to be able to turn it off until you finish it.

It's ok.

It would have been so much better with a full retail release and support. Instead they basically butchered it to make it an arcade game.

For what it is, it's ok, but it could have been so much better.

Yeah the save system is a pain in the ass. I suggest starting out on the hardest difficulty as well. You'll get a cheevo for beating the game and it's really not that hard. Also, keep as many bullets as you can....
