Alpha Protocol - Preview, Video Interview @ GameSpot

by Dhruin, 2010-04-14 22:28:08

GameSpot has a preview of Alpha Protocol that covers familiar ground, as well as a video interview with Sega's Tim Ernst.  The video is the better of the two and while there's little new material, it does provide a decent overview - although this is the first time I've heard about the actual background story.  From the preview:

While developers told us that you can play the entire game without killing a single enemy, it seems like combat will be plentiful. The game is played from a third-person perspective, and when aiming your weapon, you'll have a targeting reticle pop up--the longer you aim the reticle without firing, the more accurate your shot will be. If you use stealth wisely, you'll be able to sneak up on enemies and take them out without even firing a shot. This being a spy game, you can also use the game's plethora of gadgets to aid you in the action--things like electro-magnetic pulse grenades, radio mimics, incendiary grenades, and, of course, the ubiquitous first aid kits.
