Summary: Everyone who plans on buying this game. Don't!!! Activation won't work Sega is lieng to everyone. After 14 hrs of trying to activate the game, I only found out that the activation site is dead!! The other reviews on this game are more than likely just a way to get unknowing and unsuspected buyers to give away money for nothing.
Summary: Unfortunately, Alpha Protocol is well and truly broken. Here is what i did. Installed from a new package. Clicked on play and was asked for the serial number. It showed a progress wheel as it tried to authenticate. Wrong Serial number? (double checked it.) It had opened firewall ports during install. no problem there. It offered a manual verification but SEGA no longer maintains it. Email support is no longer available in the U.S. only U.K.
Summary: Oh my God!! I can't even register this foresaken game in order to play it. It tells me it cannot detect an internet connection...so I completely disabled my firewalls and tried again...and it gave me back the same message!! I tried the second option it suggested, which was to upload the Activation code directly to some sega website..
Summary: Installed it, couldn't get it to authenticate, tried alternate method of saving a certificate and using browser... their website is down. Sorry, folks, if you are using internet DRM, that website has to be always up or you get bad reviews. I regret buying this game, or any others that use this scheme. Probably means Sega games I can only play on the console.
Summary: OMG this game sucks. I don't know who the genius was that decided to add a timer to complicated mini-games. The mini-games by themselves aren't that bad (even though there are so many of them), the problem is finishing them before the timer runs out. Being forced to re-do the same mini-games over and over because of a stupid timer is not fun, and I was playing the game on Easy.
Summary: The title says it all. After purchasing this game, I found that the publisher had failed to adequately test the product in various computing domains. The game would not load and upon going to the web for help, I found that many people had this problem. The publisher had their head stuck in the sand and was offering little, if no help to resolve a wide spread issue. The vendor selling this problem was on vacation, but as soon as she returned, she promised a full refund.
Summary: This game was eagerly anticipated and now that it is finally here it is an utter disappointment. The first and perhaps biggest deficiency is game play … it is so choppy that you wonder if this game was finished before release. Sega/Obsidian should be ashamed for releasing a game in this condition … especially after the release delays. If this is the best they can do they should get into another line of work.
Summary: The mouse sensitivity is skewed between two parts of the game: the running around and firing works best with a low mouse sensitivity, but the mini-games are impossible without high mouse sensitivity because you cannot move your cursor across the screen fast enough to complete them. I had the same problem with the dialogue: I couldn't move the (terribly directed) cursor to the conversational option I wanted in time (that's right: conversations are *timed* and you lose the...
