Storyline

Loyalty carries a price and no one knows this more than agent Michael Thorton. A talented young agent cast out by his government, Thorton is the only one with the information needed to stop an impending international catastrophe. To do so means he must cut himself off from the very people he is sworn to protect. As players determine how to accomplish different objectives, the decisions made and actions taken in each mission will ultimately transform the type of secret agent Michael Thorton will become. Every choice the player makes as Michael Thorton will carry consequences for his future and the fate of the world. After a mission goes awry, Michael is cut off from all of his contacts and betrayed by his superiors and is being hunted by the United States government. In response, Michael uses the eponymous "Alpha Protocol", though it is normally reserved for more senior agents, and begins to operate under cover, to uncover the conspiracy. Written by alphawiki

Great Concept, Weak Execution
24 September 2012 | by mwesternSee all my reviews

The first thing that I would have to say about this game is that I was drawn in by the characters. The story line, voice acting and general feel make it a good story, well told.

The playability and re-playability for the various outcomes is second to none. They have accomplished what so many other sandbox type (not that this is a sandbox game) games have not in that your choices really do have consequences. Even the route that you want your character to develop will make some obstacles very easy. I like the in game challenges and found them genuinely unique and at times challenging.

However, where this game misses is on some of its polish. The graphics seemed old. I grabbed this and played it as a used game and thought that it was one of the first to come out on PS3 and was shocked to find out it was a 2010 release.

The controls are difficult and awkward making game play difficult at times.

As for the various skills available, there is no real need to develop more than a few of them and as the other reviewer pointed out, there is no need to actually operate covertly because the pathetic AI leads to some fairly easy kills. I only had trouble with a couple of the bosses throughout the entire game.

In summary, worth the play because the story will suck you in but the difficult controls leave this not accessible to a novice gamer, which is unfortunate because the story is compelling enough to bring new gamers on board.
