Rated 8 out of 10 by TakeMySquirrelToThePark It actually isn't as bad as people say. IMO
Fact is there are gameplay issues, and the RP elements are SOMETIMES weak; but the real-world choices and reactions are spot on, voice acting it top shelf and the annoyances in the gameplay are actually easy to get used to or there is a workaround. Much like the view problems, you can easily switch from L to R shoulder view with barely a thought; it becomes second nature when you play. Sure, the game has choppy moments even on high caliber machines, it is a trade-off for how fun the game can actually be if you sink into the plots. Fun to replay with a bad attitude or simply an uncaring killer mentality as far as the game is concerned. Sneaking and such is amazingly well thought out.
The bads? Oh, there are MANY bads. The game should have been epic in all ways, the idea behind nearly every part is astounding but the implementation or the bugs themselves make it at times seemingly unplayable. Things getting stuck, plot key points not always playing through. The save system is......but I've seen worse. I would have purchased it for full Tier 1 if I would have known I would enjoy it as much as I did in spite of the bugs and playability issues. Though the bargain price it is now makes it well worth it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by AggFro Truly Interesting Game
This Game Reminded Me of Mass Effect 1/2. It gave me a great satisfaction with its storyline and how it can punish you for making a mistake in a "Dialogue Option". It Presented a Challenge in its Firefights and Stealth. Its characters were very well customized and given wonderful personalitys. My only complaint bout this game is that it didn't go on after the ending making me very disappointed that I would have to restart everything I did. I Highly Suggest getting this game if you like Any of the Mass Effect games and even if you didn't and like stealthy mission and ninja like games. I truly had alot of fun with this game as its story through me for a loop many many time this gave me a satisfaction of trying to figure out the mystery. Love, Joe :D
Rated 1 out of 10 by E111 Alpha Protocol - Avoid at all costs!!!
This game was eagerly anticipated and now that it is finally here it is an utter disappointment. The first and perhaps biggest deficiency is game play … it is so choppy that you wonder if this game was finished before release. Sega/Obsidian should be ashamed for releasing a game in this condition … especially after the release delays. If this is the best they can do they should get into another line of work. Just a few of the extremely annoying game traits; • Choppy movement • Tendency to spawn in walls or other solid structures • Completely unnatural poses when killed • Weapons that materialize right through body parts (is RPG through his shoulder) • And on, and on, and on Then there is the camera views … so bad in places that the view is within an inch of the characters head. There is also a mixture of genre … your cruising along in a RPG and suddenly (ie Brayko battle) you’re in a seemingly different game. The Brayko sequence is ill conceived and out of place. It should have been left on the editing room floor While the dialogue and story are good ... and the weapons customization very good, they cannot make up for the unacceptable quality of this release version. There is no way that the developers didn’t see these problems and it is unforgiveable that they released in this state of finish. This was a money grab pure and simple. Do yourself a favor … avoid this game like the plague and spend your hard earned money on a polished worthy game.
Rated 8 out of 10 by sdwillie Very Good Game
Didn't know what to expect and wasnt sure since this seems to be a console game but for PC its alot of fun. As for the guy who reviewed it and says its "choppy" maybe you need a newer graphics card or something because it's not choppy at all on my gtx260/ i5-750 combo. One thing i dislike immensely is some of the re-spawn spots. You end up right in front of a guard looking at you although you are on a stealth mission. Hopefully a patch will address this. I give it an 8/10
Rated 10 out of 10 by Keystone35 Amazing Game!
Alpha Protocol has been one of the best games I have ever played. As I play the game I feel like I am inside the game going on missions and being a hero. I hope Obsidian Entertainment makes a sequel to the first one! :)
Rated 9 out of 10 by GamerToTheMaximum Really Fun
I can't believe no one bought it. I downloaded it, and the PC version stands out over the console version. The frame rate still drops though (a frame rate is how fast your game is going). The gameplay is great. If Obsidian SOMEHOW makes a sequel, they should add some great multiplayer. That's it. Download now!!!!!
