  1. A muddy, hard to handle shooter with no real plot or enthusiasm. It's just "go there, shoot this, shoot this too, okay go here now," over and over again.

    Far too many key elements are poorly executed. [Nov 2004, p.87]

    Hell, Alpha Black Zero even makes games like "Chrome" look like high art. Ultimately, the intriguing storyline doesn't compensate for the vast, boring levels, and ugly scenery.
  4. There are still a wealth of unexplored plot ideas nestled in the game’s impressive back-story- too bad they decided to rush the actual game out the door in such an incomplete state.
  5. Problem number one. The controls are atrocious.
  6. Its ugly presentation and poor execution are an insult to both the recommended system specifications (one gigahertz for this?) and to all the progress that's been made in designing shooters over the last few years. This is one to avoid.

    Alpha Black Zero may not be the worst game ever made, but it may be the most tedious. [Dec 2004, p.93]

    Excellent new squad based game! Hoooge time to complete, great graphics and the ability to play through levels how you want! The only problem Excellent new squad based game! Hoooge time to complete, great graphics and the ability to play through levels how you want! The only problem I had was when I shot at enemies my team mates often got in the way, and some of the levels are a little too repetitive! But apart from these two little niggles it is very enjoyable!
