In the world of espionage, nothing is as it seems in Obsidian Entertainment’s blockbuster RPG thriller, Alpha Protocol™. Players will assume the role of Michael Thorton, a highly skilled – yet inexperienced - government operative trained to eliminate threats to national security. When a mission goes horribly wrong, Thorton is the only one with the information, skills, and audacity to stop an impending international catastrophe. To do so, he will utilize the very government directive that the enemy sought to use to against him - Alpha Protocol.
Set in modern day, Alpha Protocol gives players complete control not only of Thorton’s actions but his personality and attitude as well, all of which will determine the future of the world as we know it. Blending fast-paced modern combat, significant character advancement and innovative RPG features, Alpha Protocol brings a fresh new perspective to the genre.
With a story rivaling the best spy-thriller novels and an immersive, ultra-realistic espionage world, Alpha Protocol will redefine the RPG genre for the next-gen gamer.

Top Customer Reviews
Multiple endings, multiple ways to approach each story, and the actual feeling of being a secret agent a la Jason Bourne or Jack Ryan is present in gameplay.
I decided to give this game a chance recently, and with most of the bugs fixed and game balanced, now is a good time to enjoy what is really an excellent game. I definitely recommend it, and hope that Obsidian one day releases something that isn't a broken mess because their ability to craft an experience is second to none.
Now, as far as gameplay, it is standard for these kinds of games, the typical point-and-shoot through the bad guys in order to complete missions. Of course, you have the girls like any spy should and so forth. But, where my biggest complaint is the complexity of some of the tasks that are required. No matter what the class you choose, you still have to learn things that my be outside of your skill tree, whether you are a soldier all the way down to the lowliest of freelance rogue agents. Of course, I am referring to such things as deactivating alarms, hacking computers (*which make you feel like you need a PhD in computer encryption) , and so forth. Also, the targeting system in Windows 8 is extremely buggy. You barely move your mouse to target and you are staring at the ceiling while the bad guys are taking you out before you get a shot off.
Coming from the company that brought us ' Star Wars II: Knights of the Old Republic: The Sith Lords', it feels almost like Obsidian and their creators may have tried a little bit TOO hard with this espionage RPG. Instead of there being a fun factor, it feels more and more like a chore trying to become the ultimate espionage agent as you fight your way through things. I am still in Graybox, which is the games tutorial, and I still have not completed it in two days of consistent play. With everything being timed before the alarm sounds, its not a wonder why people are getting frustrated.......
