Yeah, the box art is rather unexciting, but I digress. As far as the subtitle goes; well, if Fallout had "A Post Nuclear Role Playing Game" as their subtitle on the box art, then I suppose others can do so as well.

The ESRB content summary is hilarious:
Alpha Protocol

Platform: Windows PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3

Rating: Mature

Content descriptors: Blood, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Sexual Content, Strong Language

Rating summary: This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of a special agent dispatched to track down stolen munitions and bring terrorists to justice. Players travel around the world, navigate through missions that increase characters' skill, and eliminate an assortment of enemies and terrorists. Players use shotguns, assault rifles, machine guns, grenades, and knives to kill enemies. Stealth attacks allow players to sneak up on and stab unsuspecting enemies. The most intense depictions of violence occur during interactive cutscenes where players have the option to "spare/wait" or "execute/goodbye" villains. Players can shoot surrendered enemies at close range with bullets to the stomach, kneecap, and forehead. Most injuries and deaths result in blood splatter that occasionally pools on the floor. During the course of the game, players can comes across exotic dancers dressed in skimpy clothing. In one scene, the central character has (implied) sex with a female villain: The villain is shown in underwear and climbs on top of the central character and mounts him; sexual activity is never depicted as the scene fades to black. One character in the game is depicted snorting cocaine from his hand; the central character comments that the person is "f*cking high."
Well, at least we won't see yet another awkward, cheek-clipping sex scene a la Mass Effect. The cocaine reference is also humorously written, as well as the confirmation that Thorton can throw out quips at a moment's notice.
