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.
Summary: I recently got this game due to seeing a youtube video on it when I searching for something else. This game for me was pretty fun but was lacking abit in the game play mechanics. The storyline was a bit confusing and half the time I really couldn't tell what the mission that I was currently on was...
Summary: Alpha Protocol is a solid game through and through. It added some cool new ideas to the RPG genre while taking a few chances. I think that with proper cultivating, a sequel could really do well
Summary: I found this game while looking for a Splinter Cell-type fix, and it sounded like a good alternative. It's a fairly decent game with its own brand of play mechanics, and open-ended, intricate and adult storyline of shifting alliances, and it mainly relies on RPG, shooting, hand-to-hand combat and...
Summary: Obsidian seem to do better when they fail at ambition (Fallout new vegas, Alpha protocol, Kotor 2, and many others) rather than succeed at a polished safe game (dungeon siege 3 comes to mind). Yes, the developers make flawed games.
Summary: Any game that makes you think twice about killing, and later regret it needs to be played by any and all gamers. The story is unoriginal, clearly left-wing-bias (not to say it's wrong), dialog is rather hit-or-miss, combat is formulaic and the third person perspective kills me every time.
Summary: I usually don't play checkpoint save games, which makes me less of a hardcore gamer than most. Still, I like stealth based games and gave this one a chance. It is surprisingly fun FPS-RPG and the checkpoints actually make the game more interesting.
