About the Game

Planet Alcatraz is a 3D role playing game with isometric projection. The player travels through the game world and fights against enemies in the real-time mode. In a general sense Planet Alcatraz can be portrayed as a non-linear adventure with lots of shooting. Several genres are mixed in this game but despite that fact it isn't stuck between them and appears to be a classical RPG that is based on a specially developed system.


The action takes place on prison planet Alcatraz. Its inhabitants are inveterate criminals that were banished there for the life term for their terrible crimes. The main objective of the game is to control a sabotage group that consists of the only one person in the beginning and enlarges through the game. The player has to use all sorts of resources and means to accomplish the mission.

This game is basically my new Fallout 2, it is so damn great. It even starts like Fallout 2, with a LOT of frustration due to the lack of character power and understanding of the game mechanics in the beginning. This game is absolutely badass, the voice acting is so bad it's good, the character animations are quite funny at times, and some of the poorly translated stuff people say is absolutely ridiculous. The soundtrack is also awesome, I never expected some sort of dance music on a brutal prison planet, but it is damn good. The developers deserve more money, I want more games by them.

Well, english localization actually not very good, but I played it in Russian and this game is quite solid. Graphics is slightly outdated, game mechanics somewhat cranky, but - RPG system is nice, story is excellent, quests are very fun, lots of weapons and skills, large game world (prison planet). 8/10 for Russian version and it seems 6/10 or 7/10 for English version.

I kind of like it!

The voice acting in the earlier parts might turn you off, but the gameplay has a bit of depth to it.

The main problem is in the localization. Somewhere in-between the Russian version to the English version, the intended gritty setting got lost. However the much lesser English version is now hilariously funny due to the lacking voice work.
It's like watching one of those B-movies and having a "good time" by making fun of it, but along the way you find a thing or two you enjoy.

So if you'd like a laugh, and if you can stand some localization hickups then I'm sure you'll have a mildly good time with it .

No atmosphere, wrong music, stupid(but funny) dialogue and a clumsy combat system. What else you need to not buy this game?
