Alpha Protocol (PlayStation 3)

 

Playing Alpha Protocol is like putting together a 5,000-piece jigsaw puzzle with 500 pieces missing: You get a sense of what the big picture should have been, but the final product is still maddeningly incomplete. This intriguing role-playing game...

Sloppy visuals ; Glitches and bugs ; Poor cover mechanics ; Sporadic camera

Alpha Protocol is the kind of game that comes along once a generation. Some gamers will adore it, others will loathe it, but most will respect it. The culmination of pieces that Obsidian has put together creates a game that stands head and shoulders...

On Alpha Protocol's box, it says "THE ESPIONAGE RPG". If that sounds good to you, then this is a game you should definitely buy, since it's probably the most spy-like spy game yet made and a lot of fun with it.

Long gone are the days where a shooter didn't incorporate elements of some kind from another genre, whether it is role-playing, simulation or arcade. With Sega and Obsidian's latest venture into shooting genre; Alpha Protocol, they look to blend some...

Alpha Protocol is a series of highs mixed in with too many lows – it's a bit like snorting cocaine; sensational until the comedown and the septum wears away. When it's working it's brilliant fun, making you feel like a spy, the rest of the time is an...

Intriguing and compelling story ; When it's working, stealth action is fun; Wealth of locales

The mini-games; The screen tearing; The boss fights

To top this off, there is a time limit to all of these tasks – a really small time limit, which if you make a mistake, reduces further still. When it hits zero it triggers off alarms sending more men to your position to deal some death and it makes...

From the moment I first saw early footage of Alpha Protocol in action, I had an unshakable feeling that something was wrong. Conceptually, I knew the game could be unique and fresh. I also knew that developer Obsidian Entertainment had a great history....

If players can overcome this intense list of problems born out of sloppiness and carelessness, Alpha Protocol can be an entertaining game. It can't be taken seriously and there are many games that offer more fun with better graphics, audio, and...

Alpha Protocol Review for the PS3

 

I Am The Alpha and The Omega and Everything In Between.

Strong, decision-based scriptwriting; Simple, timed dialogue windows; Dynamic voice-work; Challenging, well-interpreted mini-games; Immersive misé-en-scene

but a lot of graphical hiccups; Levels are linear to a fault; Exploitable AI; Unpolished stealth and cover systems; Choppy, odd animations

I know this may be hard to stomach for some gamers, but delays can be a very good thing. Sure, you'll have to wait a bit longer to get your hands on the title, but it gives the developers more time to fine tune and tweak their product; ensuring a...

I found a lot of fun using the super speed, add XP and freeze alarm timer modes together as it made some of the game's more frustrating sections a bit easier. Really, the trainer features everything you could possibly want to make the game that much...

Alpha Protocol Review

 

We really enjoy the stories of persevering studios, those that managed to work through a series of setbacks and delays to eventually provide gamers with a polished and appreciated product. You will often hear about these feel-good results for years...

But hey, it works out well. It's really a blessing because it's the only thing that kept me playing for a while. Eventually, though, all the severe problems began to pile up and infect most every movement I made. Nothing seems catastrophically bad but...

Obsidian Entertainment's Alpha Protocol is finally here. Does the

There's much more worth mentioning here - the lobotomized AI, the nonexistent collision detection, the bare-minimum sound design, and cliché characterizations - that make Alpha Protocol feel like a four-year old game. Not even a bug-free release or...
