Prototype 2


Nearly three years ago, Prototype hit shelves and delivered a really open-world experience that added a lot more drama to the narrative than usual for a sandbox game and a fast-paced parkour style to get around instead of using vehicles. It also found...

The audio's pretty good overall. As I said before, I really dug the voice acting in the game, even if the script was a bit too swear-heavy to take things seriously at times. Everyone did a good job with their role and no one had a voice that didn't fit...

Prototype 2 on Playstation 3



Prototype 2 can be a fun world to play around with just as long as you turn off your brain. If you can ignore the monotone story arc and character personality and just enjoy the gory combat and upgrading system, then Prototype 2 has some solid weekend...

Prototype 2


The first Prototype game placed you in the footsteps of presumed terrorist Alex Mercer and your main goal was to regain your memories. The character was an unlovable mass of spiky bits with a hoodie and while elements of the game were fun, the story...

Better controls ; Better graphics ; Good refinements to the formula

The gore and overall tone can turn people away ; Doesn't quite have “it

Its almost an expansion pack for the previous Prototype. That's not a bad thing, but its also not the best it could be.

Prototype 2 Review


A superficial prototype.

Fun powers and combat; "Playground" open world; Lots of skill upgrades, abilities, mutations; Radnet

Story and characters are boring; Stealth kills are broken; Not much relation to the NYC setting

While Prototype 2 is fun, it's also bare. Killing monsters and gaining superpowers will always be entertaining, but the game could have been so much more than a short power fantasy, a lazy revenge story with hackneyed villains and a stereotypical...

Prototype 2 Review


The city that never sleeps is once again wracked with infection, monsters and martial law. Except this time it's not only struggling to cope with a fresh outbreak of the violently ravenous Blacklight strain, or the jackboots of amoral military grunts,...

It’s a tussle between painting the streets with tendrils and watching tanks get smooshed by crap flying everywhere, and unleashing my pack of brawlers on a Blacklight base. Although, come to think of it, ground smashing spikes off a skyscraper...

Prototype 2 Review


Sometimes, we need games like this. It offers very little in the way of challenge, pulls no punches in terms of brutality and vulgarity, and doesn't have a brain in its gleefully sadistic head. It sort of tries to be serious with a storyline that...

Prototype 2 Review


Prototype 2's brutal delights help it to overcome its sporadic missteps.

Empowering movement mechanics ; A huge variety of deadly attacks ; Incentives for experimenting ; Collectibles are fun to hunt down

Almost no challenge ; Contains little that hasn't been seen before

There's little reason to perform such an act other than the delicious enjoyment you get from tormenting those weaker than you. As your opposition becomes better equipped and more plentiful, the door opens for even more ridiculous sequences of gleeful...

Prototype 2 Review


Does a new protagonist mean that Prototype 2 soars to new heights? Find out in the full IGN review.

Having no impact is kind of the M.O. of Prototype 2. I enjoyed leveling up Heller and completing side quests, but none of it really meant anything to me. Outside of the Trophies I have for my efforts, I doubt I'll remember much of Prototype 2's sterile...

Prototype 2 Review: Why So Serious?


Tremendous mechanics are marred by a wet blanket of a world.

Prototype2 allows you to indulge in the amazing fantasy of embodying a Superman-esque protagonist with a massive chip on his shoulder. Instead of protecting Metropolis from the forces of evil, you are the embodiment of chaos whose sole goal is to cause...
