good idea, didn't follow through

  • Summary: the concept had such amazing potential, and you get bits and pieces of the designers' aspirations, but unfortunately thats about all you get. the graphics are pathetic and could be run off a regular playstation practically, and only serve to highlight the game's many other shortcomings. the controls get dicey and I found myself getting detected by enemies simply because the camera locked up at a completely useless angle or I'd get hung up on invisible corners.

Alpha Protocol

  • Summary: Alpha Protocol is a game with great ideas, but without the follow through. The game lacks vision past a b-rated espionage network drama. Background designs glitch out at times, game freezing, and poor mechanics, among other problems. A rent at best.

  • Conclusion: While sneaking around and putting knives into people's throats is a lot of fun, it's not enough to save this game from the sinking ship it's chained to. You can't offer people to focus on gadgets and sneaking, but still confront them with boss-fights people can only win by shooting at them until their incredibly long health-bars disappear.
  • Pros: Sneaking around and trying to avoid enemies is a lot of fun and requires a lot more skill than simply firing your way through the levels. The game also rewards going through levels without alarms going-off or enemies dying, which is a good way to stimulate the player to act like a real spy. I also liked how you could upgrade your stealth, so you would receive bonuses that would prove invaluable to people who aren't that good at stealth, this made using stealth a lot e...
  • Cons: While sneaking is the most interesting mechanic in this game, it feels like it also has to be an action-game and that you can't possibly have a climactic boss-fight without cover-based combat. This thought is probably what killed the game for me. Whenever you have to fight a boss character he will run around the room and fire bullets at you that have four times as much impact as they normally do, they avoid every gadget you throw at them and you can't use stealth. Unl...

Réussite en demi-teinte ou échec brillant...

  • Summary: Autant le dire tout de suite: graphiquement, c'est raté. Le jeu a plusieurs années de retard en ce domaine, idem pour les animations ou l'intelligence artificielle des ennemis qui est catastrophique. Le jeu se rattrape par un système de dialogues très dynamique ayant une réelle influence sur la suite du scenario.
