5 underrated games you can get in the Steam summer sale

3. Alpha Protocol (75 % discount)

alpha-protocol-missionAlpha Protocol is the sort of game that ended up being a flop despite its pretty brilliant concept and the fact that it was one of the few true espionage role-playing games ever released on consoles and PC, even if it was criticized due to its poor execution, pacing and bugs at release.

But still, this is a game that lets you build a true network of contacts, from an intrepid photojournalist to a sexy mercenary, and in which player choices in the Mass Effect-style dialogs and elsewhere truly matter, leading to several different endings. It also has some fun hacking and lockpicking mini-games, and the third-person shooting is pretty decent one you get the hang of it, making Alpha Protocol definitely worth a look during this year’s Steam summer sale.
