Anyone here like Alpha Protocol?

It was clunky and the shooting was terrible. I got through about 30 minutes before I returned it.

Good game, should have been patched a few times to get rid of some kinks .. I'd like a sequel.

Yes, a couple of my friends and I like the game a lot. I can understand why someone might not like it, but I think it's a solid, fun game. I'm not all the way through my first playthrough yet, but my friends are on their second and third playthroughs already.

I never finished it but I mostly liked what I played. I should fire it up and play the rest of it


This.

Word for damn word.

Great game... I got stuck at one point late on and never finished it up... Keep telling myself to do so, as I loved the game... But there are so many new shiny things to play.

By far the most underrated game this gen. If Mass Effect 1 and Splinter Cell 1 had a child, it would be called Alpha Protocol.

I bought it for 2 dollars on steam. Game sucks but story kept me going. The way your choice actually mattered was pretty awesome.

Well sure if you play it like a third person shooter.
The point is your guy is some schmuck who's still kind of learning, so naturally you're not going to be Bullets McShootystab at the beginning, you're meant to focus on your abilities until you get better. Every option is viable when you put enough points into it.

It's not a shooter, it's an RPG. And it's a game with RPG elements where improving yourself really does improve yourself, instead of changing your reload speed from 2 seconds to 1.8 seconds.

I love Alpha Protocol. Probably my fav Obsidian game.

I hated the achievements though, so convoluted.

So much wasted potential. I'd like to see a proper sequel, though.

It's very telling that out of all the messages posted in this topic, ONLY ONE of them is totally negative on the game.

Like several of the people that have already responded, this is one of those game I've picked up and played a few times, but have never managed to finish. Not because I didn't like it, but because there are just so many games that demand our time, lol. But I think there is a good lull now for me before I get Saint's Row IV, so I might try to get this game over the weekend and finally properly get into it.
