Summary: It's ok, outdated graphics and typical story line.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.
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. For example the time you hae to solve the mini-games for disabling alarms, picking locks, and hacking computers should vary depending on the skill level you choose to play at.
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. I played DAO and Mass Effect and to say that this game is an RPG is false. Its more like a hybrid, much like ME2 but without the refinement.
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.
Conclusion: In my opinion, i felt this game was turning out quite good. Had some good ideas and had a bit of a challenge. However, the graphics are pretty poor compared to quite a few older games out there and i had everything up full with a very powerful machine. Worst though is the controls..... my god they are awful. You can tell it was designed for console basically. The best example of this is when you do the hacking mini game.
Summary: Strange things expectations. Receiving the same item may trigger either satisfaction or disappointment depending on what you were expecting. From a game that was developed by members of Obsidian, the people who had released such masterpieces as PLANESCAPE-TORMENT and Baldur's Gate , one expects lightening to strike yet another time. Unfortunately, they seem to have striked out. The first thing that strikes you, however, are how bad the graphics are.
