Obsidian's upcoming PS3, PC and 360 game Alpha Protocol is an RPG without elves, dragons or swords -- amazing, right? Instead of Middle Earth trappings, the game features the cool cats and gadgets of the world of international espionage.

I’ve been playing a beefy preview version of the game for the last few nights, and after not really having seen it since E3 two years ago, there was a lot to wrap my head around. If you must use a template for mental comparison, you’d be best off with using Mass Effect 2 Alpha Protocol is similarly mission-based, with an emphasis on investigating the threads of an overarching plot, and a combination of shooting things/sneaking around things/using tech and skills to disable things.
