From the men and women who brought you Knights of the Old Republic II and Neverwinter Nights II comes something a bit in between. Not so much fantasy and not so much sci-fi, we are left with a modern day spy adventure full of mystery and intrigue. Doing what Obsidian Entertainment does best, we are given a role playing game with hordes of branches that are heavily driven based on your actions. You play as Michael Thorton, a new recruit for Alpha Protocol, a secret organization working from the shadows in preventing global terror. What kind of spy you become is determined by your actions. Will you be the suave Bond, the aggressive Bauer or the professional Bourne? With so much potential behind the name, will Alpha Protocol be the shining example of the RPG genre or just another action game to throw in the wind?
