Alpha Protocol

Strategy Informer
10 July 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.

Alpha Protocol (PS3)

  • Excerpt: Close your eyes and imagine the following: Mass Effect flirts with Splinter Cell. After a few drinks, one thing leads to another and the two get down and dirty. A few months later (what is the gestation period for games?) a little bundle of joy pops out, and the couple decides to name it Alpha Protocol. At first glance the little one seems like it has the best parts of its parents. But as with all drunken mishaps a few of the required genes never made it into the pool.

Alpha Protocol Review

PlayStation Universe
2 June 2010
  • Summary: Alpha Protocol is all ambition with little follow through. This espionage-RPG attempts to draw players into a world of lock picking, Saudi terrorists, and secret government conspiracies, but does it so ineffectively it is hard to maintain interest past the first mission.
  • Pros: The control players have on how the story plays out, An overall interesting concept, The dialogue system
  • Cons: The wretched cover mechanics, The enormous amount of visual and animation glitches, The poor camera perspectives

  • Conclusion: Alpha Protocol had so much potential. It had all the elements planned out perfect to make this a great game. Regretfully, it seemed like the game didn’t get enough time to finish up as what you get feels like three-fourth of what was planned. Still the story is strong with this one and it may interest you enough to make you look beyond the game’s faults. For me, there were too many things to forgive and not enough forgiveness to go around.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
1 June 2010
  • Excerpt: We really enjoy the stories of persevering studios, those that managed to work through a series of setbacks and delays to eventually provide gamers with a polished and appreciated product. You will often hear about these feel-good results for years after the embattled developer releases an impressive title, but the failures fade into obscurity.

Alpha Protocol

GameTrailers
28 May 2010
  • Excerpt: An espionage RPG is enticing in concept, and given how the genre has shaken out during the past few years, it's easy to imagine one being really cool. So here comes Alpha Protocol, a game that certainly looks the part, and whose developer boasts a solid RPG pedigree. Is it a mission worth completing, or should you have a cyanide pill handy? You are agent Michael Thorton, a new recruit at Alpha Protocol, a super-secret government agency.

Alpha Protocol

Console Monster
10 August 2010
  • Summary: Published by SEGA and developed by Obsidian Entertainment comes Alpha Protocol: The Espionage RPG. The story revolves around Mike Thorton, a new recruit to Alpha Protocol and a tool ripe for shaping. It's a story of death, destruction, intrigue, friendships and betrayal, but mostly death and destruction - it's more Jason Bourne than James Bond.
  • Pros: Intriguing and compelling story, When it's working, stealth action is fun, Wealth of locales
  • Cons: The mini-games, The screen tearing, The boss fights

Alpha Protocol

Gamereactor
8 June 2010
  • Conclusion: Michael Thorton is pissed off. First he was drugged and recruited into a shadowy organisation known as Alpha Protocol , then he was sold out and now there is an annoying Russian arms dealer who apparently loves 80's rock who is trying to kill him. Not only does he seem like an annoying person, but he also has an annoying habit of killing Mike as he runs towards him with some kind of kamikaze knife attack.
  • Pros: Interesting idea, some memorable characters, good length, lots of customisation and weapons, plenty of choices and paths.
  • Cons: Technical issues, poor A.I., average graphics, poor boss fights, some annoying characters, mediocre combat.
