- Alpha Protocol Review
It's not long until the likes of Fable 3 and Fallout: New Vegas arrive to claim half the hours from our miserable days, but if you just can't wait to sink your teeth into stats and item management, not to mention dialogue trees, then Alpha Protocol, now just £11.99 at both Play and Amazon, might be the perfect remedy for RPG-withdrawal. Essentially, it's Mass Effect by way of James Bond, with sprawling galaxies and scaly aliens replaced by terrorist compounds and scalier henchmen. Sound good? Well, the reception wasn't so much. In fact, it was rather bad. Technical hiccups, poorly implemented combat and a steady stream of debilitating bugs rendered a promising title dead in the water upon release.
