AlternativA is a diamond in the rough: A mystery/conspiracy theory game involving a future dystopian society, set in Europe and South America. A likeable protagonist, fighting against extraordinary odds. An atmosphere of brutality, degradation and despair.

Really good point and click, great value if you get it in a sale. The storyline is interesting, voiceovers are good too. It can be a bit clunky with a few crashes (but that may just be my PC) but on the whole I found it a very enjoyable game as a big P&C player. Definately worth a pop if it's going cheap.

must say, I am enjoying the story in this tremendously. Great graphics, fun character and a typical point and click adventure game. Nothing really to diffcult to figure out so far. Will continue to enjoy and prehaps paly again one day.

Its a very mediocre game.

The voice acting is not atrociously bad, but its not great.
The graphics are a bit dated, but the theme is done very well and its not a detraction from the game.

I like the fact the game would kill me in certain situations, it made me jot down notes. Thats not something I normally do for adventure games, so it was very refreshing.

There is sometimes a strict order in doing something, and sometimes you need to check or try something twice it seems. That has led me to wander around for a bit sometimes after trying the obvious....then finding out I did the correct thing....but I just needed to look at something first. Which is a bit of a pain.

The story is a bit meh, but the environment and cyberish punk theme kept me interested. Towards the end the game kinda felt rushed, I was very disappointed.

Its not worth 10 bucks, only grab this if you can get it on sale for 2 bucks or so.

I cannot really recommend this game. Even thought I had whishlisted it for a long time and expected a lot.

The beginning starts quite well. The base of the plot is well... not very original but one can feel it could get interesting.

Also, the graphics isn't bad -- even though everything is 1024 capped with 4/3 aspect ratio, but I don't mind.

But then you start to notice the very bad voice acting, the clumsy gameplay where you basically have to go back and forth in countless areas just to get an item that you couldn't pick earlier...

Talk to this guy, go there, pick item, come back to the guy, new dialog is unlocked, etc.
Alright that's like the basics of adventures games, but for this game this is really a waste of time.
All of that is made to make the game longer. Really.

The gameplay was so pointless that at the middle of the game I started to use a walkthrough just to PLAY the game instead of wandering aimlessly everywhere just to find a piece of paper or a piece of grass (yeah, true story) or whatnot. I just wanted the story to continue.

Also, the closer you get towards the end of the game and the less detailed everythings gets.
You cannot click on random stuff anymore and have your character comment on it, or having nice description of the surrounding. I believe even the music is gone too near the end. Even though it wasn't that great in the first chapters, it was still a little bit immersive.

And, when the end of the game comes, we can saddly notice that everything has been rushed. The story falls appart and then comes dissapointement.

However there are some dialogues and comments that are kinda funny.
There is a little bit of humour in that game that will make you laugh for sure.

But yeah... no I cannot recommend this game.
