So So

Brandon Edington, Amazon
2 June 2014
  • Summary: It's ok, outdated graphics and typical story line. if you purchase this, you can no longer activate online, you must download a patch from the publisher to make it work. Support for activation ha ended.

Awful ...

J. Simion, Amazon
30 March 2014
  • Summary: There's nothing about "spying" here. It's just a shooter -- and to make matters worse, it's silly, repetitive, and has poor gameplay.

Interesting game, poor design and execution

Gene Warner, Amazon
10 March 2011
  • Summary: The game seems to have an interesting story and the graphics and sound are well done. But what makes the game fail are the gimics designed to enhance the game play but in fact ruin it due to poor design and lack of consideration for the player.

Wow...this game really sucks

Jeremy R. Gleason, Amazon
3 August 2010
  • Summary: I am typically not one to write a review, but I just had to. I played this game for the past couple days and it really just...sucks. The combat is too glitchy and the AI, as stupid as they are, somehow do not hold themselves to the same rules as you, which in a sense can make it unfair.

Sad

Christopher W., Newegg
4 July 2010
  • Summary: Terrible- pass on this one at most rent it if you NEED to. I Love skill set RPG games and the market seems to be dead atm, but this is the worst designed game ive seen in years. It is a gallon of antifreeze to a starving market. Yeah you are thirsty and is sells sweet but in the end it is death.
  • Pros: Nice concept, alernate endings, player impact on story line
  • Cons: Worst AI I have seen in at least 10 years Mechanics remind me of a grads final project for college (low budget, multiple errors, but just enough to be fuctional) Mouse targeting is jittery. Graphics are is dated as sega is. Linear- Today games arent linear. Though you kind of have a choce in the ...

Yeah it HAD potential

Christopher W., Newegg
3 July 2010
  • Summary: Just an all around fail. Great potential but doesnt deliver on anyting that could be great about this game. Didnt mark it one egg because it worked and I was able to play it from start to finish. If you NEED to give this game a try just rent it on the weekend.
  • Pros: nice concept, some cool toons, conversations/decisions altering the way the game plays out is cool but at the same time are too long with a bunch of meaningless babble.
  • Cons: AI is the worst I can think of period. Combat is random (not in a good way). This includes stealth kills (you can sneak up behind a guy from check point and he'll see you then do the exact same thing the next time and he wont), headshots (damage wildly varies, and bosses (the same boss seems to b...

Great ideas, but poor execution

  • Excerpt: Alpha Protocol is a game that I really wanted to like. I tried to look past the flaws that this game had, but I honestly couldn't. The best thing I can say about Alpha Protocol is that it at least tried to be something different, but even if you try to do something different, it doesn't mean that it...
  • Pros: Some good ideas, great concept, good mechanics, OK graphics
  • Cons: Underdeveloped ideas, terrible AI, restricted/slippery combat, slow loading textures

Thorton, Michael Thorton

Kordor, Ciao
23 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Alpha Protocol is a third person action stealth game with role playing elements which was released on PC in 2010. You play the role of Michael Thorton, a field operative, and you sneak around doing things which must not be linked to the US government. This is the kind of game that I want to love.
  • Pros: Interactive storyline
  • Cons: Buggy; gameplay generally lacks polish

Dreadful - avoid like the plague!

C. Wild "Chris", Amazon
23 January 2013
  • Summary: This isn't worth your money, even at the current price of about £6. What's good... > The story isn't bad, although it's not great either > Most of the time you get to sneak around and feel passably 'super-spy' What's bad... > The mini-games are a real let-down, and I think the developers knew it.
