  1. That's it. Alpha Protocol is a Field Agent game, with the possibility to play it out as a stealth game, a straight shooter, or a gadget focused tech'n'slash. It's not an Espionage RPG. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, But I too was waiting for an espionage rpg. Mostly the intelligence gathering, going undercover type of game. (Like the original Casino Royale or the move The Agency, something like that) Instead we got a Jason Bourne, Quantum of Solace, 24 season 5 like game, which plays out well, but not, in any chance an Espionage RPG. But I can live with that
  2. More espionage. I mean the espionage-style espionage, gathering intel, going undercover, being a mole at the heart of the enemy. Varied up with the shooting-stealth-etc. missions, it would make a great addition.
  3. Well, the RPG blend works like this. If you get up your assault rifle or pistol for example, at master level you have near perfect aim - 1,5 seconds to carefully aim (which is shorter than you'd expect irl), then you can start raining death on your enemies. If you're untrained with it, it's much harder to get the precise aim, and you can't aim precisely the same range, etc. As for the Sniper, I agree completely. Anyways, what I wished to add: the inventory slots themselves are bugged sometimes. Messing around with items (usually occurs when you change 2-3 upgrades/gadgets on the same s
  4. Skill-mapping is an excellent thing to mention, on the PC it was breaking the immerson whenever I stopped to switch. Also, the Surkov-embassy mission seems to have a bug (I guess in the end there would have been an assault vehicle attack, but it seems to be cut. At least against the VCI the report mentions defeating a Stryker assault vehicle which was only present as an environmental detail). Enemies are respawning, that's great, but this way you have no chance to kill all enemies (against G22 for example, to impress SIE). If there's a counter for the enemies there (and the mission ends af
  5. Woohow! A conspiracy theory in a forum dealing with a conspiracy-based game? It's far-fetched in my opinion, things tend to be much more simple. In this case, look at the reviews of Gears of War, God of War or Modern Warfare 2: They praise those games. Let's be honest, those games are simple as a rock, and we're speaking about a really flat and uninteresting rock then. Alpha Protocol is much more complex, but some reviewrs and gamers simply didn't bother to comprehend it. That's about it. I didn't get any money to write my review in a degrading tone
  6. In my opinion, the system works well. It took a few hours to get used to it, but once you do, it'll be smooth and natural (except for some occasional cover-lag) People tend to miss the fact that it's an RPG so your abilities are based on skill points and such. If people are looking for shooter and stealth element which is relying on the environment, go ahead and play Splinter Cell, that's the point of that series. Alpha Protocol is Alpha Protocol, and it isn't a tactical stealth game, but an RPG with some action elements. That's what people should comprehend.
  7. It wouldn't make much sense to give this game a new game+ mode as Veteran already gives us a load of skill points if desired. Equipment, etc, everything can be bought by money, and in Alpha Protocol, there is plenty of it (if you don't waste it, of course)
  8. 5. Keep the conversation-choices-repricussions element, or maybe improve it, make it more crossed.
  9. Yeah, the 'explicit' American Commando, the 'explicit' offspring of Ronald Reagan, an 'explicit' American Ninja
  10. *Sinister Humming* by joking Mike in the Tunnels (Rome, the mission with the satelite dish in the end. I only got this once, on my character that was basically set up for mocking and joking every time)
  11. The review copy had some large, cubic clips for the shotgun. Not sure if it's a feature or a bug though.
  12. Aggressive Thorton and Madison (somewhere between 7-9 rep) Madison: a..hole Thorton: Bitch It changes a great deal when you reach -10 rep. Thorton: Bitch Madison: a..hole (Yeah, because in the game it's uncensored, but in the forums it isn't. )
  13. Thanks for the info, it's certainly good to know, as I'm a great fan of backups. (At least since I lost 6 Mass Effect 1 characters saved for the sequel )
