The spy who almost loved me Let’s say someone’s just given you a jack-in-the-box. He then motions for you to crank the handle, so you give it a whirl. Round and round it goes until—boom—out comes a platter with the world’s most delicious cake on it....

Alpha Protocol successfully combines role-playing, spy-vs-spy espionage, and fast-paced action. However, its bland visuals and characters prevent it from being a tuly great game. Good Points: Original setting for an RPG; clever dialogue system; Bad...

Alpha Protocol is far from perfect, but some good ideas, complemented by varied action, stealth, and RPG gameplay, make it a must-play for those still mourning the loss of television's 24. Matt Cabral, Gamepro.com...

Whenever one of my mum's cakes went horribly wrong she'd serve it up and say, “Try it. It's still edible.” And she'd be right about Alpha Protocol. It's entirely possible to enjoy the game despite its innumerable flaws. But with so many delicious...

Obsidian Entertainment, if you've not yet been acquainted, was formed from the ashes of the legendary Black Isle Studios, who developed a number of classic PC and console titles. Obsidian began their journey developing the ill-fated Star Wars: Knights...

The combination of FallOut New Vegas developer, Obsidian, and the concept of a spy role-playing game should have been a match made in heaven, but in reality it’s an absolute shambles. How one game can promise so much, deliver so little and get the...

Obsidian's Alpha Protocol offers an original setting and the power of choice. It's a game where you decide the fate of a majority of the cast, giving you the sense that the story is guided as much by you as it is by the designers. With a number of...

PC/XBOX360/PS3 Game Review: Alpha Protocol Posted on 16 October 2010 by Michael Anderson What the HECK took me so long to get my review of Alpha Protocol done? Didn’t I mention months ago having finished the game? Didn’t I later say I was going back...

For most of my time in Moscow, I had been impetuous, shooting first and not bothering to ask questions later. But this time, I decided to hear the guy out, even though he had betrayed me. A couple days ago, I had saved his life from an assassination...

When Alpha Protocol was first announced, many gamers were intrigued. A third person espionage RPG isn’t exactly your typical game, and with the proven developer Obsidian Entertainment behind it, things were looking promising. However, it is no secret...

International Review By dome.fi on -

Tietokoneroolipelit ovat silkkaa parhautta, mutta niiden tapahtumaympäristöt kaipaisivat jo pientä tuuletusta. Jos kokemusta ei kerätä fantasiamaailmassa, seikkaillaan yleensä avaruudessa. Realistisemmat tapahtumapaikat jäävät armotta paitsioon.Alpha...

Sulla copertina spicca invitante la dicitura RPG di spionaggio. Visto che ogni tanto ne abbiamo le tasche piene di RPG con ambientazioni fantasy, Alpha Protocol poteva essere la risposta alla nostra sete di novità. Invece alla fine siamo rimasti un po'...

Et amerikansk passagerfly bliver skudt ned med et amerikansk missil, hvilket naturligvis får efterretningstjenesten til at reagere. Alpha Protocol er et tophemmeligt spionprogram, som er designet til at handle frem for at snakke. Du indtager rollen...
