"I feel bad for everyone involved in Alpha Protocol, because it’s the most blatantly incomplete game I’ve played in years, possibly in my life. The “espionage RPG” wants to be Mass Effect 2 with a Jason Bourne story (which is not a bad idea), but it plays like a GTA III knockoff with a slew of irritating visual glitches. In fact, there are so many glitches that I doubt anyone at Obsidian Entertainment played this game and thought, "Oh yeah, this is ready, we can ship." It’s obvious the bottom fell out somewhere in production and the game was shipped “as is” in an effort to cut losses. It’s really disheartening that a publisher, especially Sega, would dare slap a sixty-dollar price tag on this half-baked package."
