Summary: This is a fun action-RPG set in the modern day. There are few RPG games I have played that have a modern setting like this. It is an interesting change from the fantasy and sci-fi games I often play. The action is in the style of a third-person shooter. You'll be looking at your character while you run, sneak, and take down the enemies. There is a lot of character customization in the game. You can play your character just about any way you want.
Summary: Alpha Protocol is probably the best RPG I've ever played. It's not like Call of Duty by any stretch, despite the use of weapons. The controls are even different from Call of Duty, and the the weapons are choice and unlimited. There's a lot of challenges you'll face in this game, deactivating alarms, diffusing bombs, things of that nature. Face the challenges head on. It'll be difficult at first. But once you get the hang of it, the game will get much easier.
Summary: I wouldn't have even known of this title had I not seen it listed under a Splinter Cell Conviction reviewer's recommendations. I was surprised to see Sega as the publisher. I never studied up on Sega much, but for years every time I'd hear that name it'd remind me of Sonic the Hedgehog. Well, this game is certainly not comparable to that, & I learn something new everyday.
