I Am Alive is an action game with survival elements set in the post-apocalyptic environment. You take on the role of Adam, who lost his wife and daughter during the earthquake in Chicago. Almost a year after the accident he starts looking for them around the semi-destroyed city.

Like many survival games, I Am Alive includes resource management, crafting and fighting with other survivors over the loot. The unique parameter you need to take into account is Adam’s stamina: every action reduces his powers. The game provides an extensive combat system that features several weapon types and protection items along with the ability to frighten some enemies and to avoid the confrontation. All weapons you get at certain story points or completing special side quests.

The gameplay combines the survival aspect with constant fights and the necessity to explore every piece of locations in order to find useful items. As a result, I Am Alive receives the features of a tactical action genre that expand the gaming experience you get.

Is this game worth it?
Jul 6, 2014
They just gave this game away free on xbox Gold. IMO whoever designed the fighting aspect of this game should be banned from working on video games forever! It looks good the story line is compelling but the fighting just ruins it for me.

I Am Alive reviews and comments

Eternal looking for Food Ehr for people with a duncated and logical think quite passable story but long since you have to collect things here and there in order to satisfy all the sacrifices at all, all if you are looking at the deformed person quite at the beginning you get a Small fun thing in the big and whole post-apocalypse halt.

A really great Game with Ups and Downs. I love the Post-apocalyptic Atmosphere, it goes down extremely well, as well as the Climbing Opportunities & fight Scenes with limited Ammunition, just beautifully inoculated and super Represented. That's how I imagine a storyline survival game. The Story only confuses a little, but after a While it fascinates more and more and I have to say personally, I fully enjoyed the Game from the Beginning, until the End. A clear Buy recommendation for all Survival fans!

Grim Climbing adventures at sometimes dizzying Heights coupled with brutal Combat Facilities and Missions in a small "free" World that fortunately turns out to be relatively linear on closer inspection. Since neither the triggering "Event" nor its more specific Circumstances are explained and the Main Actor "his" goal is not achieved, I hope for a second Part, which I will certainly also gain again. This can then take a little longer than 8 Hours and, above all, put a decent Spit on it graphically. 3 out of 5 Mace stars

This Game has so much Potential-Unfathomable Even If the Game comes across "not finished" the Approaches are really awesome as well as the Atmosphere in the Game, which is breathtaking. Did I really Wish that they would have taken it more seriously in the Development and made this Game the great Game that it could have been. So all that remains is to say that buying in the Sale is worthwhile. Whos Bugs and Mistakes in the Game are unforgivable can leave the fingers off it and save themselves the bad Criticism. But if you dare or look for something completely new, you will be pleasantly surprised!

First it captivates, then it just annoys .. The Story sounds good, it starts quite nice and you learn one or the other to Control ... And then it's always just that itself, the same Climbing Stories (find the climbing hook so you can rest hanging in the Wall), the same Fights (press E if it's close enough, then shoot the creak with the One Cartridge just found , threaten the 3rd without Ammunition and push it down somewhere) ... And most annoying: One has made a Mistake and somehow got through to the next Memory Point, then You can start the Stuff from somewhere in front or continue playing with hardly any Stamina and missing Equip. Sorry, but for me this is also for a low-price game too few ps: And the Camera control I find mostly cruel ps2: You notice the Console Game
