The player is dropped into the maze of rooms, halls, corridors, mining facilities and shafts of an apparently abandoned deep-space asteroid mining base, facing rebellious machinery of assorted robots and automatic systems, which he has to defeat and demolish, using his weapons and wits. Strong story, fast paced shooting action. However, if you cannot shoot, then there is your RECON, hacking device enabling you to remotely control various devices you meet (robots, manipulators, surveillance cameras, security systems, weapons etc.) on your way through the dark halls and corridors of Alpha Prime. If that’s not enough, you can drug your mind and sharpen your senses (bullet time) by injecting a small dose of hubbardium. And all the time you will be surrounded by physical world in a very literal sense, because almost everything that moves, moves thanks to advanced real-time physics algorithms. Features 10 levels full of action; 5 non-playable characters to help you; 14 different enemies including Special Forces soldiers, robots and crazy miners; 8 futuristic weapons including pistol, shotgun, machine gun, grenades etc.; Devices to hack – including a variety of robots and manipulators, surveillance cameras, security systems, doors, etc. [IDEA Games]

There have certainly been far worse games in the extremely well-traveled FPS genre. For what it is, Alpha Prime delivers the goods and ends up being an engaging experience.70Game Chronicles
Pretty but tedious, Alpha Prime is a solid but supremely derivative shooter that’s more often a chore than a pleasure. [June 2007, p.60]69PC Format
Alpha Prime is a commendable game that offers a solid FPS gaming experience but lacks the innovation some might expect with a new game.69GameZone
Alpha Prime does a great job of being average.67Gamers’ Temple
It’s a fun shooter with a well-done bullet-time feature and a decent storyline. What more could you ask for from a $20 dollar game? Oh, Hubbardium-crazed humans? It’s got that too!67Worth Playing
At 20 bucks, Alpha Prime may be a decent stocking-stuffer for FPS junkies. [Dec 2007, p.97]65Play Magazine
A pretty shell for a game that’s pretty lacking. Not much fun. [Aug 2007, p.92]60PC Gamer UK
The game has huge potential for the long term, even if a lot of it remains unfulfilled at this point.60AceGamez
Alpha Prime takes a little from each game but has a hard time carving out its own identity.60Game Over Online
Alpha Prime, with a passable storyline and passable gameplay, is a little passable anomaly. [July 2007, p.77]58PC Zone UK
