* LostForever: It is incredibly easy to unintentionally skip over computer terminals, dossiers, equipment, or money unless you search ''every'' area very thoroughly. Doors will sometimes close and lock behind you once you pass into a new area, cutting you off from whatever was behind you, so it's a good idea to take a minute to search every location for items. This can be ''very'' important at times. For example, if you don't hack a certain computer in "Intercept Surkov at US Embassy" and fill out all of Brayko's dossier, you won't be able to [[spoiler: question him about his connections to Surkov and thus expose him as Halbech's original contact and then break that line/recruit Surkov into your own network.]]

** Many of the "non-lethal" takedown moves have animations that clearly show Mike snapping his victim's spine.

* CriticalResearchFailure: InUniverse. Mike, Mina, and Albatross all realize that Halbech screwed up royally, and their attempts to make a ColdWar will result in WorldWarIII. Even consummate {{Spymaster}} Alan Parker doesn't realize it until the VeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon.

As the first modern-day spy roleplaying game, ''Alpha Protocol'' offers unprecedented control over the development of Thorton's abilities and his interactions with other characters. [[RPGElements Upgrade skills]] such as physical combat, weapons mastery, and cutting-edge technology as you grow in experience and complete missions. The game is also noteworthy for having an [[StoryBranching immensely branching storyline. Almost any single choice and many of your conversation options can result in different events or endings]]. Unlike games like [[Franchise/MassEffect those in the ''Mass Effect]'' series] or [[Videogame/TheWalkingDead Telltale's ''The Walking Dead'']], your game can completely change. Events can play out differently, some missions may or may not become available and certain characters might not even appear at all.

As the first modern-day spy role-playing game, ''Alpha Protocol'' offers unprecedented control over the development of Thorton's abilities and his interactions with other characters. [[RPGElements Upgrade skills]] such as physical combat, weapons mastery, and cutting-edge technology as you grow in experience and complete missions. Also noteworthy for having an [[StoryBranching immensely branching storyline; pretty much every single choice and many of your conversation options can result in completely different events or endings]]. Unlike games like [[Franchise/MassEffect Mass Effect]] or [[Videogame/TheWalkingDead Telltales The Walking Dead]], however, your game can completely change- events can play out differently, some missions may or may not become available, and certain characters may not even appear at all.

The dominant themes of the game are issues of both deception and betrayal. Treachery is common, as expected in a spy and espionage thriller, and there are lies upon lies and wheels within wheels. [[GambitPileup Everyone has secrets]] and everyone's agenda is suspect. Finding who to trust and who is manipulating the player is a major part of the game's storyline.

The game received mixed reviews -- while its innovative story and dialogue systems were widely praised, some found fault with its gameplay, graphics, and/or lack of polish. Sales were soft enough that {{Sega}} has no plans to release a sequel. [[HopeSpot However]], [[Creator/ObsidianEntertainment Obsidian]] [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/110277-Obsidian-Would-Like-to-Make-Another-Alpha-Protocol-Game have expressed tentative interest in making a sequel]] or SpiritualSuccessor so who knows?

* BadAss: Thorton. So you say you've just started working with and been separated from your agency on a dangerous mission in some Third World country? Well, it seems you'll have to work on your own, and bring all those terrorists down.
** BadassAdorable: Sis, a small, slender, cute, purple-haired, mute young girl who apparently went to the [[Series/{{Firefly}} River Tam School Of]] WaifFu.
** BadAssGrandpa: Conrad Marburg was a black ops field agent for 20 years. Now he's chief of operations of a mercenary gang composed of veteran soldiers. To keep himself in shape, he runs ten miles a day. He can punch the crap out of you like nobody else in the game.
** BadAssLongcoat: [[MeaningfulName Omen]] Deng. Secret Police hardcase extraordinaire, and extremely dapper. He's even smart enough to [[TheCoatsAreOff delicately remove his coat before getting down to some serious violence]].
** CoolShades: Thorton if you so choose. SIE, too, who might also fall under TestosteronePoisoning.
