Back at E3 2009 SEGA was treating the public to some of the first glimpses of Alpha Protocol – an espionage RPG which was one of my top picks for best E3 showing. It really looked like SEGA and Obsidian were cooking up the ultimate role playing game. A solid storyline mated with a dynamite action system and deep RPG elements had the hallmarks of a top shelf title. It was practically Mass Effect meets 007.
For months after its E3 showing Alpha Protocol sort of slipped back under the radar and only in the couple months leading up to its release had it resurfaced to showcase some of the same dialog and combat system we had already witnessed.
So now that Alpha Protocol is upon us have the developers delivered on all the potential and hype built up at E3.
