4.0 out of 5 stars I really hate/love this game June 3, 2010
By Cloud
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Playing through Alpha Protocol is frustrating. Not because of the issues the game has - of which there is plenty - but rather it's frustrating because you're playing something that you know should be better than this. Earlier this year, 2 games came out which also had some real lack of polish and iffy design decisions but they were games that I put in quite a bit of time into anyway: those being Nier and Deadly Premonition. Those 2 and including Alpha Protocol are games where half of your brain is completely criticizing nearly every facet of what it has from the graphics to the AI to the unrefined gameplay and yet the other half keeps playing regardless and you're left wondering how's that possible with a game this flawed. Of course the game did have its share of problems from the delays to Sega apparently saying it wasn't "RPG enough" yet the game, which was supposed to come out in October, was delayed till the very beginning of June so that's roughly 8 months or so for polishing so makes you wonder if the game needed more time or if Sega interfered too much. Let me say now that this is a very hard game to recommend since you'll either be like me and can see yourself doing a 2nd playthrough just for the hell of it and the others will be like "I can't even finish it, it's so bad".

Story: The story centers on Michael Thorton, an agent in Alpha Protocol, one of those secret spy organizations that gets the job done without the official acknowledgment or help from the US government. His latest mission is to go after the leader of a terrorist organization who shot a commercial airliner while in-flight but when evidence surfaces that a defense contractor, Halbech, supplied the missiles, Michael goes into investigating Halbech and what their motives are for the attack.

4.0 out of 5 stars It isn't doom and gloom. June 4, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all im doing this by phone so please bear with me. Also note that this is a review of the xbox 360 version of the game.

For a long time I was excited for this game bit almost didnt get it because of the reviews, dont pass this game up. Im going to try and keep this short/blunt. Alpha Protocol is a good game! However it isnt for everybody. Don't go in expecting splinters level of stealh game play ie hang from stuff. Don't expect a third person shooter like gears of war, and dont expect mass effect! I can not stress that last one enough.

While it has issues with textures poping, I am on my second play and have not had any AI issues. This game as said before doesnt have the best graphics but what it does have are more then good enough. Now this game is a bit....rough. It does not pamper you like most games today. I read a person saying it should have gears of war cover bit I never had an issue pressing A as soon as I hit cover. I also read people say its hard to shoot.....its an rpg not a shooter lvl up your skill and any gun can be awesome (although it isnt hard to do so even before hand).

I guess what im trying to say is if you are actually any good at gaming then sneaking and shooting are not as hard as people say. If you want a fun interesting game then dont skip this, just be sure you can handle playing something that doesnt hold your hand all the time.

FOR PARENTS:
If you want to know how child safe this is, it does have (suggested) sex that you need to go out of your way for. However from the three parts i have seen of this none had any nude or side boob stuff. One did have panties but thats it.

Anyway this was way longer then i thought it would be but i hope it helps!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Pros outweigh the Cons. June 7, 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game had tickled my love for RPGs as well as my love for spy/stealth games. I pretty much had to buy it. It has it's positives, as well as it's obvious negatives, but overall it's a damn fun game I can't put down. And I will be doing a 2nd playthough.

Graphics - 3.5/5 Nothing special here, just your average looking game. The environments look bland, the character models are actually pretty damn good looking up close. But the voices don't always match up with what they are saying.

Sound - 5/5 The voice acting is top notch, one of the key features that helps make a great story better in any game. The background music isn't too spectacular, but it does the job. The sounds of guns, as well as some of the other sound effects are pretty generic, but don't distract from the game.

Gameplay - 2/5 This is where most people have a problem with this game. The AI is terrible, with enemies getting stuck on corners, and all the things that would normally make this a bad game. The shooting is flawed until you level up, which in theory sounds good, but is poorly excecuted.. There is a bright light at the end of this tunnel however, when you beat the game on recruit you unlock veteran, which grants you a lot more skills right off the bat, thus making the game more enjoyable to a HUGE degree.

Story - 5/5 This is where the game shines. Every choice you make results in a differnt game. I don't want to spoil anything, but sometimes when you make friends with the right people, they will assist you during a mission. (resulting in friendly AI, which is also quite stupid, but nice as a distraction). The story and in-game cutscenes along with the top notch voice acting make it feel very much like an interactive movie at points.
