Product Description

From the Manufacturer

    Alpha Prime is a first person shooter set in deep space in an apparently abandoned deep-space asteroid mining base. You have a surplus of advanced weapons and devices, including a variety of robots and manipulators, surveillance cameras and security systems that can be hacked, controlled and used to complete your task.

    Somewhere deep in space, on the lifeless asteroid Alpha Prime, something has gone terribly wrong...

    The miners were warned that the hubbardium they were mining was too dangerous, but the lure of unimaginable wealth was too strong. Now, something has happened to them and it`s up to you to save them and face an unknown threat.

    Armed with an assortment of hi-tech weapons and the ability to hack into the station's own automated defenses, your mission is simple:

    Get in, Get `em and Get out!

    • 10 levels of fast-paced, unrelenting action including mining station, spaceship hangar, magnetic railway or asteroid surface
    • Non-playable characters aid you in your mission to save the miners and get off the asteroid
    • Countless enemies including Special Forces soldiers, robots and deranged miners
    • Hack into devices including robots, surveillance cameras, security systems, doors, etc.
    • Bullet time allows players to temporarily slow down the action and get the upper hand

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome environment, lots of fun August 14, 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Snagged this download for $2.50 and would have expected to pay much more for such a good game. The graphics are superb and very smooth when maxed out, and runs with no problem on my Windows 7 machine (Intel i7 processor, Raedon 5670 graphics card). The story line is decent and game play is pretty fun. The environment is really neat with lots of freedom to move around, explore spaces, pick up and manipulate objects, etc. Nothing real involved or advanced here, but some good eye candy and something to keep you occupied for a few hours.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is very good for its price. November 23, 2010
By DoubleX
Verified Purchase
So the game has an OK storyline which is really important for me.
the graphics are good if you put everything on max.
i'm not going to say much, only one thing:
i bought it for 5$ which is super cheap for this kind of game that's why i'm giving it 4 stars.

P.S.
if you have spare time which you would like to waste on playing a shooter and have an extra 5$ than i totally recommend this game!

2.0 out of 5 stars Worth $1.25, not much more April 14, 2011
Verified Purchase
Game looked interesting, and for $1.25, I couldn't refuse. Not too far into the campaign, but so far the story is somewhat interesting. The graphics are nothing special even at max, but not bad enough to notice the quality. Levels seem very "close-quarters" which gives it a retro shooter feel. The guns are nothing special. Also, many have commented on the game's difficulty. Even at normal, enemies can take you down pretty quick while they themselves take a few shots. It's refreshing for me to see a more difficult game, but if you're not into that then it might get frustrating.

Overall: good game to play around in for $1.25 but I would be disappointed if I got it for $5.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good for $5, though not remarkable. March 26, 2011
By Blzbrg
Alpha Prime is most notable for it's very low price. It feels very much like Half Life 2 in that the player essentially progressed through maps that can only be completed one way, killing lots of enemies with various weapons. However, even on easy, Alpha Prime is not as noob friendly as HL2. Textures vary from very good to not very detailed. Gameplay is pretty good with a few interesting features such as hacking, low oxygen areas (your suit includes an oxygen supply), and slow-motion thrown in. If anything, I wish there was more use of hacking. Frankly, the worst part of the game is the stupid stuff the characters say. When the intended meaning can be comprehended at all it is incredibly poorly written and not in the least inspiring or even capable of drawing the player into the story.
Pros:
*Can lean out around corners
*Primary assault-like weapon has more accurate zoomed mode (but no scope)
*Occasional hackable electronics
*Pretty cool vehicle ride
*Load and save from any point
Cons:
*Hacking rarely used
*Terrible script

5.0 out of 5 stars Best game ever for 5 bucks March 12, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This was a great game for 5 bucks. I would have paid 50 bucks for it. It beats the new COD hands down. Very long single player game. Worked great with Windows 7(64).

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Fun FPS with a decent story line. I thought it was a little too short with an ending set-up for a sequel. Also, on normal mode the bad guys NEVER miss, which is annoying. I would wait for the sale price of $5.00.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value on a fun sleeper shooter. December 31, 2010
Verified Purchase
For the price there is really no logical reason any FPS fan shouldn't download this game. Sure its production value is rather low but the action is solid and the graphics are more than acceptable. Is it as good as COD? Of course not! That's like comparing "Great Value" coffee to a custom Starbucks roast. Of course the Bucks is better but at the end of the day the generic coffee will get you going. Aplha Prime is that cup of hot generic coffee. Nothing really new or groundbreaking but it satisifes the shooter itch just fine and is an amazing deal. Download away!
