I'm currently on my 3rd playthrough and I might play a 4th.It's rare that I play a game twice let alone 3 or 4 times. I love this game and would give it an 8/10.

I really liked Alpha Protocol, I don't get then negative reviews. It's really fun and it's keeping me entertained.

I actually got AP a few weeks ago, since the price has dropped already. Thoroughly enjoyed it, just started another playthrough now after taking a break from it for a bit. It has flaws, but it's fun nevertheless.

Thanks.
Heh, funnily enough Two Worlds is pretty good with all its patches now.
You're welcome.
Maybe Obsidian will realese a patch for AP? It would be nice to have smaller recticles - so far my only real complaint.

Good to see someone give a fair and honest review. I just picked it up yesterday so I havent finished it yet, but I can't believe some of the scores I've heard. 2/5, 5/10; wtf? I've seen better scores for Two Worlds! I think the "critics" were overly "critical".

The problem with this game is that it was suppose to be something new and bring something dynamic to the industry, but it did not. Having said this, Alpha Protocol is a solid game in my opinion, it just doesnt stand out.
Hmm, I think it did. The individual components are not terribly unique, but the combination of them and how they're combined is very much so.

If you are tight on money, wait for it to come down in price, it is worth $40, but you may be disappointed if you buy it for $60 and expect something just AMAZING. Glad I bought it personally, but to each his own.

I dont know I'm going to wait till thisone receives a price drop. I'm not really a fan of renting games as I like to add them to my collection but I dont wanna risk the 60 bucks. Maybe once it's down to 30 or something but 2010 is shaping up to be too good a gaming year to risk my cash.

So you'd reccomend a buy or a rent? I was interested in this early on because Obsidian made one of my favorite sequels with KOTOR II but after reviews I kind of shrugged it off. So it's good?
It's good if you're not neurotic. If you're neurotic, it's bad. Haha. I recommend a buy, but if you're still feeling unsure, rent first.
I think for various reasons reviewers overemphasize flaws and kind of gloss over the really good aspects. This seems to only happen with games that are not heavily promoted, and the opposite occurs with games that are. As I said, Mass Effect does a similar thing but has that final layer of polish. For me, Alpha Protocol is still a good game worth buying despite lacking that last layer. And hopefully they'll come out with a great patch or two soon to at least bring it close to that level.

I was disappointed in this game, but perhaps I had too high expectations. But there were a number of elements that didn't make great design sense, and they relied way too heavily on copying Mass Effect IMHO.

Still though, I'd give the game pretty much around what Sean said... I dunno; I'd rate it a 7.8 or something. Having a lot of fun with the game myself.

I thought that Destructiod review was way frickin ridiculous myself. There is no way this game is 5/10 or less. 6/10 maybe you could justify, but not much lower..
