Alpha Protocol is a third-person action shooter with RPG elements. Players can customize their character with experience, as well as make decisions throughout the game which can affect both the outcome and your character's reptuation.
In a Jason Bourne like situation, Michael Thorton was once an aspiring agent, who is suddenly cast out by the government. But the information he carries could stop an international calamity. The fate of the world rests in the hands of Thorton!<.p>
The game received overall lukewarm reviews, with an average score of 61%. Though the decision-making and character customization was appreciated, many criticized its boring visuals, problems with enemy AIs, and overall repetitiveness.
A doable Platinum, which will require at least two playthroughs. The first can be set on easy, the second on Hard. Throughout each playthrough, you will need to make certain decisions which affect your reputation, and therefore your trophies - this is why at least two playthroughs are necessary. Afterwards, it's just a matter of cleaning up anything you missed.
Since we need to complete this game at least twice, you may as well start off on Easy mode and try to claim as many trophies as possible in your first run. Select Recruit background, which gives you no skills to start off, but will earn you the Evolution Of An Action Hero trophy. As you play, focus on getting a LOW reputation, which will earn you the No Time For Love and Never Trust A Sociopath trophies.
Also, keep in mind that progress towards trophies will NOT carry over into your second playthrough. So if you finish the game with 99/100 critical hits with the pistol, you won't get the trophy for Pistol Mastery after just one shot in the second - you'll have to start over.
On the second playthrough, select Hard difficulty to gain the Hardcore trophy. Having now beaten the game with the Recruit background, you can now select the unlocked Veteran, which will help you out. Here, focus on getting a positive reputation to claim the trophies you missed on your first playthrough. Also, you can get the Ready For Anything trophy, as certain intel is only available when your reputation score is at a certain level with some characters.
Once those two playthroughs are complete, you should have most - if not all - the trophies. Simply go back and clean up anything you missed. Be sure to check out the Alpha Protocol trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you need and their requirements.
