A.V. Club: Alpha Protocol Review

A.V. Club writes: "If Alpha Protocol were another Gears Of War clone or an Uncharted knockoff, its mediocrity would be less of a letdown. The disappointment of playing Protocol is proportional to its conceptual brilliance: It’s an epic espionage operation in which you dictate the spy’s style—trigger-happy or stoic, cocky or cordial—and your approach affects the story’s progression in powerful ways. In conversations and at critical crossroads, you make snap decisions from a menu that generally hews to a “suave/aggressive/all-business ” framework. The ripple effects threaten to make Mass Effect look constrained by comparison—you’d have to finish the game a number of times to uncover all possible outcomes. But it only takes one play to see all the ways Protocol drops the ball."

The story is too old to be commented.
