Alpha Prime review

Neither in its prime nor the alpha male


  • Passable gameplay
  • Story ain't that bad
  • Bullet-time always helps


  • Horrendously ho-hum
  • Nothing different here
  • Should be free

There’s something unsettling about an FPS that comes out of nowhere. Even the very worst FPS games tend get noticed a bit, mainly because of press releases that shyly claim “unprecedented realism” and “immersive gameplay.”

So, for a game that’s had close to zero press, it’s a surprise to report that Alpha Prime - availablehere isn’t, well, all that bad. The script may be Engrish-delivered with stilted ham-sodden madness, and there’s very little to rescue the game from mediocrity, but Alpha Prime looks good, plays OK and sounds - well, it sounds like an insane Italian guy.
