Zero Punctuation review

#1 Posted by Jeust (10540 posts) -

Here is Yatzee's cynical review of Alpha Protocol.  
 

   
Seems he liked it.  
 
Although a mixed view of the game as everyone has. 
 
What are your thoughts on the review? and about the game? do you agree with the review?

Pretty funny. I like Yahtzee.
Yahtzee is NOT A REVIEWER. That wasn't a review!!
He stopped being funny after [insert review].
Yahtzee was never funny.
He annoys me, all he does is talk shit.
Yahtzee is a dick.
He's ripped apart my favorite games, and those are my favorite videos.

As someone who has never played the game, it was a spot on review. 
Exactly what I would have given the game. 7.5. Bang on the money. 
It's like he read my mind.

I love Yahtzee. Even though he shits on games most of the time, he actually brings up pretty good points on odd or broken game mechanics. Whatever his case towards a game, I know I'll get a laugh out of it.

For Yahtzee all that was basically high praise.
He pretty much seems to love AP as do I.
It is an amazing game that most major outlets shit all over expecting an FPS game from an RPG.

After watching that video, you think he loves AP?.... riiiiiight

The game was fun but the voice actor for Mike Thorton was AWEFUL. Half the time he sounded so bored with the lines he was reading I stopped caring. The boss fights are awful and the weapon play near the beginning of the game is so bad this supposed super spy may as well have as much experience using a gun as I do (none)

I thought it was a fun romp to subdue my ME3 fix for a little bit.
 
I felt like a lot of things were very similar to ME1, kinda poor combat and unique dialogue system.  It was a fun RPG spy game and I'm looking forward to a sequel.
FUN

Yahtzee is the only reviewer I take seriously because he's made it clear that these are not to be taken too seriously, therefore you can take said lack of seriousness seriously and have a good laugh.
 
...also, every time someone posts one of these, I end up watching at least ten of them even tho I've already seen them all.

I was being facetious.

I don't know if he loved it, but I agree he seemed to at least enjoy the game, only game I think he didn't mention anything negative was Portal. 
 
My only hopeless fanboy reply is that Halbech in not really an PMC is more like a defense contractor.

I freakin love Yahtzee. No matter how cruel he may seem, I can't think of many examples, if any, when he wasn't making a valid point.

I guess loved might have been a strong word. You're right like/enjoyed would be more appropriate.

God I hate that new fucking Slim Jim ad campaign. 
 
As for the review, the guy is funny but he knows what he's talking about.  I agree with it.
