    I got the LE but the Deadly Assassin outfit has bugged up for me, apparently its going to stop me from getting 100%. Hope R* patch this so that i dont have to restart the whole game.

    Cant say i like the way the story is playing out, much like in the GTA games John feels like just another errand boy.

    @5 what would you do to change that? how would you have a characters story develop so that the game has a long playthrough and doesnt get boring?

    That’s what he is though, I’m only a few hours in as I’ve been skinning lots of things, but all the strangers you meet mostly send you on annoying little errands. He does it begrudgingly, but does it none the less. Still, good game mind!

    Probably have more missions that serve the main character more then the people he meets, pretty much every mission -just like in the GTA games- has you visit some guy to do an oddjob for them.

    Saints Row 2 did this really well, it felt like you were in control. The main missions were mainly ideas your character had himself to help his gang, he called the shots. In RDR and GTA the main characters seem incapable of thinking for themselves, they always HAVE to visit someone to tell them what to do, step-by-step.

    @8 good points made mate. yeah saints row 2 did that well although i thought the story and characters were nearly blush worthy it had some good mission design.

    If their recent behavior is anything to go by, that’s probably true.

    First, I love this game. However, there is quite a bit of misleading notions going on. The world is not really open to choice. The game/story really is centered on you being good. No matter your fame, you can’t really be a bad guy. His wife is used for excuses not be with hookers. You can’t really rob banks and stagecoaches at will. You can’t betray and kill anyone you want. There are no real advantages to being an “outlaw”. Yes, you might not get attacked as much while out riding around, big whoopy.

    Again, I love the game and thoroughly enjoying it. But, those expecting you can be an outlaw, there really isn’t much for you. The story and “quests” are based around a character being good.

    I think the reviews of Alpha Protocol was misleading.Because most of the reviewers thought it as a shooter,but it is a RPG.And a good one at that.There are some technical issues, and graphics are somewhat old.But as a rpg gamer, i have never cared about the graphics.For example, Mass Effect 2 has good graphics,solid shooting mechanics but that is all.Not a rpg at all.Mass Effect 2 could be a better game than Alpha Protocol, but Alpha Protocol is a better rpg.It deservers better scores.

    @2 i got the LE vers. too and it didnt effect me once i put the code in.

    Yeah but did you actually manage to get the Deadly Assassin outfit? Apparently the Mo Van Barr bit working is pretty hit or miss and R*’s solution for now is to just have you restart the game and cross your fingers. So if what i’ve heard is right and you did get the costume you wouldnt really notice if it affected your 100% or not.

    So much for an argument.It is not clear which one you are speaking about.
