Excerpt: Alpha Prime is set in the future on a distant asteroid where an element called hubbardium is mined. Hubbardium is used for interstellar travel but it also seems to poison people and turn them crazy. When I first learnt about it, I thought it was some Scientology influence but at any rate, you’re asked to leave the confines of your spaceship to go down to the asteroid’s surface and rescue a former comrade. Down on the asteroid, the surface looks every bit uninviting.
Excerpt: series. What is most interesting about this game is that the best parts are toward the end of the game. In the beginning stages I found myself extremely bored, thinking that this was an average or even below average game. Wanting to finish the game before giving it a proper review I pushed myself through the boring and bland early stages and finally, about halfway through, the game started to get more interesting.
Pros: Graphics, The later levels, The $19.95 price point
Cons: The voiceovers are badly overdone, The early levels may make you want to turn the game off, No multiplayer options at all, strictly single player
Excerpt: Stop me if you're heard this one before. Something goes terribly wrong at a mining colony on another planet. The company running the mine is secretive about the disaster because they don't want anyone to find out what was really going on there. A lone warrior enters the facility to find out what's wrong and spends far more time shooting than he does asking questions. Doom 3?
Summary: Alpha Prime is a first person action game with an emphasis on the single player experience. At its core is a Science Fiction story written by the foremost Czech Sci-fi author Ondrej Neff. Game play will be a varied balance of combat and more technical activities such as hacking and remotely controlling robotic devices.
Conclusion: All in all this game is solidly average. It’s a decent if predictable story saddled with a pedestrian game. The scenery is dark but pretty. The puzzles range from easy to irritating. The voice acting is sometimes good and sometimes stilted and forced. I turned off the in game music after just a few levels because it was repetitive and annoying. Combat, and the game as a whole, was adequate but never engaging.
Excerpt: The first-person shooter market is extremely crowded at the moment. Actually, that’s an understatement: the amount of shooters being released at the moment is insane . The bar has been set so high with the likes of Halo and Bioshock , so for an independent studio, releasing such a game can be like releasing a minnow into the ocean and hoping that something bigger doesn’t eat it. Is there any hope for the little guy?
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Alpha Prime is a sci-fi FPS with extremely sharp graphics and a very cheesy storyline, courtesy of a company called Black Element Software. Ten minutes into the game and you’ll notice one thing immediately : these guys don’t know shit about audio engineering and story writing. Ahh well, I’ll throw more dirt on that part later. For now, let’s take a look at the gameplay in this relatively unheard-of game.
Summary: Le début de l’été est une période reconnue comme morte. Bien sûr il a régulièrement quelques exceptions pour venir agrémenter notre soif de nouveauté, mais nous somme au regret de vous annoncer qu’Alpha Prime ne fait pas partie de ceux-là. Cela dit, si vous cherchiez du FPS conventionnel sans surprise pour tuer le temps… il y a de plus mauvais choix à faire.
