Summary: The game itself on the xbox is fun. PC....not so much. Slow...even though I'm running top gaming specs plus amazons no refund policy on it made this a fifteen dollar loss. I recommend this for a console but not pc....I only gave it 1 star bc it didn't work...on my brand new computer.
Definitely worth a revisit/visit if the early bad reviews scared you off.

Summary: This got panned in reviews (and rightly so) when it was first released due to Obsidian's unfortunate habit of releasing games in a buggy mess. That being said, their writing and ability to tell a story is top notch, and this game is no exception. Multiple endings, multiple ways to approach each story, and the actual feeling of being a secret agent a la Jason Bourne or Jack Ryan is present in gameplay.
Obsidian Made A Great Game, But Is Very Buggy With Windows 8.....

Summary: I have just purchased this problem yesterday and thus far, it is not a Windows 8 lover. It is fixable, but it is a matter of fiddling with the controls within the control panel of the system. I did this today and it at least smoothed out some of the graphics as well as the movement. Now, as far as gameplay, it is standard for these kinds of games, the typical point-and-shoot through the bad guys in order to complete missions.
Summary: Alpha Protocol has been one of the best games I have ever played. As I play the game I feel like I am inside the game going on missions and being a hero. I hope Obsidian Entertainment makes a sequel to the first one!
Summary: I had this product and bought it for a birthday present for a friend. This was a fun action game with so many different ways to play it. I liked the game and have beat it 5 times. The story changes on who you trust and who you kill, my first and second time through were very different just based on that alone. If you get this game and like it I can tell you after you finish you will want to play it again to see what changes you could have made.
Summary: I can't believe no one bought it. I downloaded it, and the PC version stands out over the console version. The frame rate still drops though (a frame rate is how fast your game is going). The gameplay is great. If Obsidian SOMEHOW makes a sequel, they should add some great multiplayer. That's it. Download now!!!!!
