Alpha Protocol Review - VideoGamer


On paper, Alpha Protocol sounds incredibly alluring, combining the best elements of the role-playing and action genres with a refreshing concept. In executing that concept, however, the game falls apart at the seams. Ignoring the dialogue system, Obsidian's latest plays like a substandard third-person shooter. Despite its myriad of shortcomings there's a moderate amount of fun to be had with Alpha Protocol. It's a game that's more enjoyable than it probably should be, a game that's better than the sum of its parts. There's a lot of potential hiding under the flawed shell, and although Obsidian has failed to coax it out this time around, I hope somebody does the concept justice in the future.

Had a feeling this game was going to be average at best.

tinybigman3118d ago

range from a 5 to high 8s. i'll wait to see the overall feeling from all sites.

This is starting to worry me. I have this preordered and paid off. I might have to change it. What do you guy think? prince of Persia or Lost Planet 2? Not much coming out in the next two months.

If those are your options go back and play something you missed out on earlier this year or last year.

Prince of Persia for an excellent single player and LP2 for multiplayer.

Don't let the Debbie downers get to you nycdude. It is a good game and you will be better off getting this other then Prince of persia or Lost planet 2. and now that your expectations have been lowered by a bunch of people that have not even played it, you will most likely be surprised by Alpha protocol.

you look at Obsidians back catalogue and its the same old story with their other games, KOTR 2, Neverwinter Nights 2, both technically bad but have potential, not much different here but saying that im gonna get it im sure it will be enjoyable.

it is a good game, really. I am glad they took a gamble and tried this out, it seems like a very good gaming experience.
