If anyone hasn't been following this, its a spy rpg/shooter.

Found the developers over here drinking, got to be the most awesome dev team ever.

Skip to 15:00 for the funny stuff. http://www.blip.tv/file/3491456 :D

Definitely interested... I was MORE interested back when it was supposed to release forever ago... but still... I hope it is good.

Supposedly its suppose to play like a mix of splinter cell and a heavy shooter but with deep rpg elements.

Really interested in it but my budget is gonna delay its purchase.

not sure what to think about this game, i was really interesting in it before. but seeing some of the recent videos i have to say it looks a bit stiff, and voice acting sounds like a bad movie.

I like Obsidian, I'm getting it... the idea of a James Bond RPG appeals to me, and PC Gamer has a lengthy playthrough preview this month and they generally praise it.

Plus babes.

I am getting it since I have a lot of Amazon video game credit to use to purchase it. It's the only thing I think that looks good enough to buy that is coming out before one of my game credits expires.

Err..Destructoid didn't like the game at all. 2/10 (http://www.destructoid.com/review-alpha-protocol-174617.phtml&mainnav=Top+stories)

I was interested in it as well... but Giantbomb just did a quick look and the shooting sounds really bad.

He's the worst reviewer on the planet.

Still, it does seem to be disappointing across the board so far... though Gamestop mentioned that the graphics issues are sorted out somewhat on PC, and the mini-games less annoying.

The giantbomb quicklook actually sold me on the game... the main issue for them seems to be that it is not as fluid and precise as a shooter, but that is because it is an RPG. It does not have player-driven shooting like Mass Effect 2, it is more like Fallout 3.

Well I still have it preordered but with most of the bad reviews I am a bit worried. I keep thinking maybe I should cancel it but there really is nothing else to buy that I really want.

Watch that quicklook, it should really tell you everything you need to know. www.giantbomb.com.

Considering you would be doing alot of shooting and its all done in realtime as a shooter then it needs to be taken into consideration.

Mr. Hunt

Well why do I have guns? Stop acting like an idiot... I know it isn't a straight up shooter... that doesn't mean everything you do only has a "chance" to hit even if you are aiming right at a persons head.

LOL. That was a little bit of fail there nekro.

Game looks good. I might grab it. Shooting looks like the system from Bloodlines.

Mr. Hunt

I am not saying I absolutely WILL NOT buy this sometime... just that the shooting mechanics look REALLY frustrating.

If it is an RPG and your aim is stat-based then no, aiming right at someone's head does not mean insta-head-shot. That is not how RPGs work. See: Fallout 3.

I understand the crosshair being bigger at a lower stat... but if you crouch and wait for your crosshair to get small and then aim at a persons head and it misses somehow I feel that is retarded.

Again, NOT saying the game is garbage or anything. Everything else about the game seems great (except the voice acting)... but the shooting really scares me.

I think the QL is a bad way to judge the shooting ability because they chose the background that has the worse gun skills. If they would have picked soldier they would have had 3 points from the start in shooting.

Yes, but I doubt I would pick a soldier either, and I feel that a spy shouldn't be THAT bad with guns.

Lets not also judge by their playing, we all know they suck at games.
