PS 2 graphics? Are you people saying that Blind or just ignorant? I'm not trying to talk smack, I'm a techie, I make my money (partly) in the industry both doin Professional Beta Testing and doing Concept and Design. This are FAR BEYOND PS2 Graphics.... I'm Very Excited about Alpha Protocol. The reason this has been pushed back, and pushed back, and pushed back again has been so they could continue to refine game-play and mechanics that are Already Spot On. Just watch. When this game hits the shelves a week from today, it's going to get a Metacritic score of At Least 8.0, if not Higher. I'd bet my XBox360, my PC, and my Wii on it. Anyone else want to back up that bet?

@twztid13 Obsidian has a "very poor console track record"? What in the $%# are you basing that absurd statement on? Obsidian has released ONE console game, KOTOR II for the Xbox. It has a Metacritic rating of 86.

Say what you want about the graphics, but the character models still look better than GTA 4's

Maybe it's just me, but I don't think that graphics look that bad at all.

The Psychopaths look the best. All the rest look pretty much the same. The gameplay looks good, shame the graphics don't. Might be on the pre-order list.

This game kinda reminds me of Mass Effect 1......so far, anyways. I say this because Mass Effect was graphically unimpressive but had one of the greatest stories to back it up. It had so many flaws but not enough to take away the awesomeness of that game. This game doesn't look all that impressive graphically, but it seems like they are putting a good amount of energy into other aspects of the game. I'm really looking forward to this one.

ok, 00:09... guys looks like they're rocking a mean dancefloor shuffle... Miami Bass style! ok, sorry. I am still buying this game, as I know I am going to enjoy the leveling, the combat and hopefully the story.

@twztid13, I would have to agree regarding the graphics. When they look bad in the CUT SCENES, you know they are going to suck in the game. However, if the game is tons of fun, graphics won't make a big deal to me in the end.

@twztid13 If every company copied ME2 than we would have 30 crappy run-of-the-mill rpgs, just like most shooters are. I still think this game will be great and can't wait till the 1st.

hope the gameplay and story lenght make up for the ANCIENT graphics (enemies walking animation looks like they're walking on a conveyer belt). couldn't care less abt replay. thats usually an excuse to make a game short. MassEffect2 does everything right. has length for ppl who want to flesh out the story, but can also plow thru it for ppl just want straightforward action game length. TONS of replay, but i got 80 hours from single playthru doing everything. i didn't want to replay. every western rpg dev could straight-up copy biowares formula & strike gold. i have high hopes for alpha protocol since first hearing abt it. my expectations have been on a STEADY decline since. hopefully, that will be for the better & it'll surprise me. obsidian has a very poor console track record (i don't own a PC).
