To each his own, but I think this game has been anti-backlashed quite sufficiently already.

Sure, it's sort of quirky fun if you can get past how confused and clunky it is - but to dismiss valid points because you're fond of it is a bit silly.

I don't hate it at all - I just don't think it's very good.

And I agree with the author: I also could not play DE:HR without thinking of Alpha Protocol!
