    Awww, I didn't want to ruin the fun of meeting him for the first time with that clip, or the one where he tells Thorton he turned down VCI's offer in a way that "made a point."

    Thorton: "Shouldn't you have stabbed him in the neck to make a point?"

    It's an excellent article. I just finished playing Alpha Protocol again, this time with a Hobo Thorton that kills everyone he can.

    Just sad that they come with this *now* ... and not when the game was released. Seriously. First "journalists" are bashing the game to death and then, many months later, they come with "oh, well... it is not that bad at all." Ehw...

    exactly. what if games journalist actually took time to play and get to know the games instead of worrying more about churning out early reiews before everyone else. some games take time to love, others are fun for 2 hours then start to really suck.

    Game journalists don't make a review about the game usually, but the marketing champaign.

    Thats why a company like Bethesda can make a game like Oblivion and it will be seen as the pinnacle of RPG evolution. - I dont HATE Bethesda, but its just an really great example.

    Do they really say "oh, well... it is not that bad at all." after many months later?
    Why the hell lots of folk still says alpha protocol is bad(not here, in my country.)? :|

    I'm replaying Alpha Protocol recently and I can't help but feel really disappointed. The game IS buggy as hell, the controls are clunky and eventually I have to stop playing because little things annoy me. This didn't stop me the first couple of times because of how amazing the story, dialogue and general gameplay is. But now that the magic has sort of worn off, I can't help but feel frustrated with how much additional work the game needed. I so wish that Sega hadn't just given up on the game because there is so much beauty in there that just needed a little polish to make it really shine.

    For my emotion about AP

    Does this game has that much bug? I didn't encount much bug(only 1 time) for 30 hours.
    I thought check point was bad but I found that wasn't only problem for AP since lots of FPS or TPS use that worse than AP (like bioshock infinite).

    For AI it's better than TES or fallout by bethesda which also had bad AI but still enoyable stealth.

    For story, dialog and way to progress things, there's no game better than AP.
    this make AP special.

    There would be many games has better combat or better stealth for future or past but for these three element AP is the best for now.

    control is little bit bad but compare with Darksoul PC version, far better though. I enoyed darksoul despite of bad control, so control isn't that a big problem. actually not that bad feel bad at first but later get used to it.
