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.

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.

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

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!

I paid $1.49 for this game. After playing it, that seems like an injustice to the developers. The game isn't going to win any awards, but it is a good game. I plan on trying more games from this developer.

- The levels are well thought out.
- There's not much of a story, but there is something to keep you involved in the main character.
- Enemies can be hard, but not impossible.
- The graphics aren't bleeding edge, but they are about what you would find on a typical console FPS.
- It could have been longer. I played over the course of a week, a few hours each night. I din't tally up the total hours, but I felt it was a little on the short side. That said, I've played some premium games from major companies lately that were even shorter.

If you're waiting around for the next great FPS to come out, you would do well to grab a copy of this game while you're waiting, and for this insanely low price you really have nothing to lose.

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).

This game has a few issues in win7...it seems the quick save mode wants to crash the game and you (I do) get Engine errors and a thing called AGCS\RAW_03.wdt error messages when if you look in the Save files they are all there...beats me why it doesn't recognize itself but it doesn't and it is a little aggravating to play it over and over to get it right instead of quick saving and moving on. The graphics are ho-hum but the play (if you can get the guy to jump six inches)isn't the worst out there and therefore the three stars...ergo the title...whatta expect for five bucks...I kinda go with the guy that said its more like a $1.25 game.

***UPDATE*** (6/21/2012) After going on a few forums with people with the same issue all ya gotta do is uninstall and reinstall and bingo quick saves are back thank goodness...phew.. there for a while I was gonna deep six the thing...and upon further review..it ain't so bad so I gave it a good 4 stars and it is worth the $4.99 after all...Google IS your friend...=} and Amazon lets you download til your hear is content..good deal Amazon..as usual.

***UPDATE*** (6/22/2012) This thing has 11 levels and for a single shooter game it really gets hectic as you go along and if you like a lot of action this one is a helluva a little game...and btw if you get hung up or stalled go to youtube a guy has been nice enough to do a video walkthrough that really helps as you are basically on your own on this one..you will not be disappointed if you like this genre. So lets go on and give it five stars. another btw just fast forward through the cut scenes.
