I did not play this game. I endured it. This product fails in almost every regard.

The graphics and animations are terrible, they look barely better than the original Playstation.

The sounds are generic and often are implemented wrong. In the level where you destroy 12 cent's sports car the baseball bat makes a clanging sound even when you miss. On multiple occasions, I've heard enemies death sound effects when I plant explosives or pick up extra health.

The controls are terrible and you will die repeatedly (or at least more than usual) if you do not rebind them. The down button crouches, but the up button makes you crouch and move forward. Jump and melee are 1 and 2 for some inexplicable reason.

The combat is mindless and unfair. You just aim at an enemy and open fire with your infinite pistol or machine gun until they die. You will take hits from the enemies no matter how good you get. The game hides instant death traps behind foreground objects, and I have had humvees drive through walls and kill me.

In addition to ALL OF THIS, the game is glitchy. As I said before, humvees will occasionally drive through walls and kill you, falling off a building can crash the game, and I've even been hit by a humvee through a wall and ended up outside the play area. I was promptly run over by a humvee that drove through a building.

In short, this game is terrible in every way. Every way except its enjoyability. For some strange reason, I found an odd charm to it. Its story was as cliche as possible and the gameplay really shouldn't have been fun, but it kind of was. If you like games that are so bad that they're kind of fun, then this game could be worth picking up. For everyone else though, I would highly recommend you stay away.

This was hilariously bizarre in the best possible way. This game is the exact opposite of what Spec Ops: The Line was trying to do, and the results are just fantastic.

Here are a few sample activities you will experience while playing Alpha Zylon:

- being chased by a Hummer only for it to blow up after you run for so long
- attacking hostages to free them from captivity
- witness the death of your commanding officer, only to see him perfectly fine 2 episodes later
- blow up a bridge in a desolate Brazilian village for no reason
- become a rooftop crime fighting vigilante while rich white people give you health packs (I cannot make this crap up)
- beat on notorious gang member "12 Cent's" new car with a baseball bat until it blows up
- live through an onslaught of gang members and hummers in a first person shooting segment (I had a Hummer climb over the wall and fall on me more than once. The first time was admittedly pretty amusing.)

And yes, that is only a few of the activities you will experience. I actually recommend playing this once, just to question what the devs were thinking when they made this game. It's a memorable experience, to say in the least.

And yes, I did beat it, dear God.

As of the time I made this review I only have 20 minutes (I might have more after I post this) but this game, is just as bad as youtube made it look, A game like this doesn't belong on steam, The game has the same quality of a flash game on Newgrounds, Its got everything, Bad gameplay that relies on having things pop out and fast actions insted of skill, Bad graphics (I dont judge games by graphics, But just look at them) and some even claim this game is racist, I thought War Operations (Which was also published by Strategy first) was terrible, And if you haven't seen that game, Well enemies shoot you through walls and it takes a walkthrough/20 minutes to figure out how to kill the first enemy. This game is a do not buy, And I heard someone made a complete remake of this game thats better, and its free on Newgrounds or one of those websites. Like I said on my War Operations review, Games like this,War Operation and Bad rats are the reason why Strategy first died.

I would genuinely be ashamed of myself if i somehow had been involved creating this dreadful piece of garbage.
Shame on you Team 6 Studios! Shame on you!

There is no god, for this "game" has proven it.
