Gotgame talk about their Alpha Protocol Preview Impressions.
The third-person perspective combat I saw during the short demo was fast and exciting, and you will be able to acquire and level-up skills to make you deadlier or even stealthier. In the demo, Thorton sneaked up behind an enemy to snap his neck, picked up a firearm from the field, activated a temporary accuracy boost skill and then picked off other guards from afar – all in surprisingly very fast and smooth moves. Interestingly enough, the Obsidian folks made a point to say that the game could be completed without firing a single shot as well. On the otherhand, you could even kill innocent bystanders but like any other action in the game, the game itself and how other NPCs will respond to and feel about you will be different from each other.
Will it be possible to totally avoid combat in Alpha Protocol, and if yes - will you miss out on all the XP and loot?
