Alpha Protocol Review

maximum pc
20 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Let’s say someone’s just given you a jack-in-the-box. He then motions for you to crank the handle, so you give it a whirl. Round and round it goes until—boom—out comes a platter with the world’s most delicious cake on it. Awesome! Before long, you want more cake, so you crank the handle again—only this time, a fist rockets out and punches you right in your cakehole. You try again. Another fist. Again. Fist. But then, finally, cake. That’s Alpha Protocol in a nutshell.
  • Pros: Fast-paced, fascinating conversations; tons of customization and cool abilities.
  • Cons: Glitchy, inconsistent stealth and combat; uneven enemy AI; annoying minigames.

  • Excerpt: I know this may be hard to stomach for some gamers, but delays can be a very good thing. Sure, you’ll have to wait a bit longer to get your hands on the title, but it gives the developers more time to fine tune and tweak their product; ensuring a better product.

  • Summary: Playing Alpha Protocol is like putting together a 5,000-piece jigsaw puzzle with 500 pieces missing: You get a sense of what the big picture should have been, but the final product is still maddeningly incomplete. This intriguing role-playing game boasts an extraordinarily flexible plot, in which your choices have real consequences both on the story and on the gameplay.
  • Pros: Your choices have lasting impact on the story and gameplay, Lots of ways to approach missions and develop your character
  • Cons: Flaky, glitchy cover mechanics, Bland visuals marred by bad animations, Terrible AI affects both the shooting and the stealth, The story lacks soul and character

  • Excerpt: Dans le monde d'espionnage dans lequel se déroule le nouveau Rpg d'Obsidian Entertainment, "Alpha Protocol", les apparences sont souvent trompeuses... Les joueurs seront dans la peau de Michael Thorton, un agent du gouvernement extrêmement talentueux (bien qu'assez inexpérimenté), entraîné à...

  • Conclusion: Alpha Procol è un'altra epitome delle ottime occasioni mancate. Pieno zeppe di ottime idee mal gestite, il titolo distribuito da Halifax è e resta in ogni caso un divertente gioco d'azione, che non mancherà di soddisfare i neofiti ma che probabilmente deluderà almeno in parte gli amanti del genere; piuttosto vario ma con l'incapacità cronica di gestire le proprie, altissime potenzialità, AP rimane nel limbo dei “gioconi” mancati e questo, più di tante altre volte, ci...

  • Conclusion: Alpha Protocol is één grote deceptie. De spionnenactie werkt niet, door de belabberde beelden wordt de actie er ook niet beter op en de missies zijn dankzij de gebrekkige gameplay niet bepaald leuk om te spelen. Dat terwijl de gecreëerde wereld zich juist wel heel erg zou lenen voor sterke stealthactie.
  • Pros: Omgeving leent zich erg voor stealth…, Sterk conversatiesysteem dat daadwerkelijk gevolgen heeft
  • Cons: jammer genoeg zit de gameplay dit in de weg., Grafisch grove fouten, Dramatische A.I.

  • Summary: А вот кто примет Alpha Protocol за «свою» — вопрос на миллион. Ролевой экшен про современный мир, полный политических и корпоративных интриг, стоял особняком в океане фэнтези, древних мифов и космической фантастики. Но хорошую идею сгубило слабое исполнение. Теперь уже не важно, чья тут вина: кучи поваров на дизайнерской «кухне», самодурствующего директора проекта или вмешавшейся Sega. Шпион «сгорел», явка провалена.
