Alpha Protocol

Strategy Informer
24 September 2010
  • Conclusion: Obsidian has clearly got the ability to produce really superb AAA titles but seems to lack the clout of their rival Bioware in terms of being able to say when a game is ready or not. The tragedy of Alpha Protocol is that, hidden behind the mass of technical failings is a superb action RPG bristling with choice and driven by some inspired storytelling.

No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

Square-Go
27 August 2010
  • Excerpt: What happens when a Japanese developer seeks to make a Western game that apes Japanese culture? No More Heroes 2 is the gonzo answer to that question. A simple enough button-masher at heart, NMH2 enters the fantasy city of Santa Destroy where assassins roam the streets searching for their next victim.

Alpha Protocol Review

VideoGamer.com
24 August 2010
  • Excerpt: If pursuing a career in games journalism hadn't worked out for me, I would have been a government agent. I'd wear a watch that could drive my car remotely, sleep with a gun under my pillow and never leave the house without a smoking hot chick hanging off my arm. Although Gabriel Logan, Sam Fisher and Solid Snake have all given us a taste of interactive espionage, few of their respective games seem to have captured the lifestyle in the same way that Hollywood has.

Alpha Protocol Review

PlayDevil
23 July 2010
  • Summary: As an RPG, " Alpha Protocol " does a respectable job, and its most considerable strength is undoubtedly its open narrative, but, when it comes to the action side, things begin to falter slightly, ultimately leaving Obsidian’s game as a likeable but deeply flawed hybrid of a game that is worth – be it via a reduced price or through a rental – a look, but one that really is crying out for a sequel that could refine the mechanics and better reach the potential of an...

Bond, Bauer or Bourne?

TotalPlayStation.com
1 July 2010
  • Conclusion: Despite some genre-redefying levels of complexity to the available routes you can go, there's no denying that Alpha Protocol feels just a bit whittled down from its true potential. Good thought it may be, it's just one step short of greatness.

Alpha Protocol

Gaming Evolution
30 June 2010
  • Conclusion: Alpha Protocol is a 2010 release of Ubisoft’s 2007 release of Haze. While the game didn’t live up to the hype it was given, it does feature several next-generation elements that simply weren’t executed perfectly. While I’m about to overlook faults within the game if I like what I’m playing, many will see these same faults as a reason to avoid the game altogether.

  • Excerpt: Modern day espionage Michael Thorton is an agent working for an undercover U.S. agency in present time. Players can customize Thorton’s background right from the start, choosing whether he was a freelancer, a soldier, a veteran and even more, before his recruitment. This choice has an effect on certain dialogues and responses from other characters and is entirely up to you to make.
  • Pros: Elements of well established games, solid RPG layer.
  • Cons: Technical glitches, sub-par enemy AI.

The Spy Who Loved Us

GIN
14 June 2010
  • Excerpt: It's always exciting to try new things, and an espionage RPG set in modern day really fits that bill. Especially if that RPG is for the console platform, where there's a real dearth of clever gaming (though Alpha Protocol is also out for the PC.) I kind of had visions of the venerable Deus Ex in mind when I popped AP into the PS3.
