SEGA Games On The Cheap: Alpha Protocol
It’s been a while since we had a SEGA Games on the Cheap post but it’s now back and tonight’s game has it all, Conspiracy, Espionage, Chaos and Destruction…..oh and lot’s of guns and explosions as well, yes tonight’s SEGA Game on the Cheap is the one and only Alpha Protocol.
Alpha Protocol is a action packed game and is also a RPG as well, in the game you play as Michael Thorton an agent dispatched by the US Government after a US missile hit’s a commercial airliner killing all that was on board. With combat gameplay, a wide range of weapons to master and state of the art technology to use this is a game that has it all and with the RPG perspective as well you can either do things by the book or just be a total bad ass.
Here is the Press Release made by SEGA about Alpha Protocol in March 2009:
LONDON (16thMarch, 2009) – SEGA Europe Ltd. today announced that Alpha Protocol™ – the groundbreaking game combining espionage, action and excitement with RPG choice and depth – will be available on retailer shelves globally October 2009.
The new gameplay trailer, showing in-game footage for the first time shows how players will travel to exotic locations around the globe, infiltrating terrorist camps and spy on unsavoury characters in the manner of their choosing. Alpha Protocol’s RPG and dialog system will allow players the choice to be smooth like James Bond, cold and precise like Jason Bourne, or just plain explosively kick-ass like Jack Bauer.
The year is 2009. Worldwide political tensions are at a breaking point when a commercial airliner is shot down by a U.S. missile over Eastern Europe, killing all aboard. Despite evidence to the contrary, the U.S. government claims no involvement and dispatches agent Michael Thorton to bring those responsible to justice. With more options than any other RPG, Alpha Protocol offers unprecedented control over the development of Thorton’s abilities and interactions with others. Physical combat, weapons mastery, cutting-edge technology and even seduction are just some of the skills to master. Hunted and alone, players will discover just how deep the conspiracy goes in Alpha Protocol.
