Expert review by: Greg "Odion" Baron (



No one loses, when you can elbow a tank from 400 feet up! When I was young I climbed to the top of a great mountain, I was told that...

Killing is fun and looks amazing ; The story will actually hook you ; You are the badest badass this side of badass town

Graphics are rough up close ; Not enough variety in the enemies ; Boss fights need work

When Prototype first surfaced, it looked great but seemed a little too close to the increasingly common 'guy with superpowers has to save the day while making lots of karma choices' template. Thankfully, the development time has been used wisely and...

Around five years ago, with graphics cards getting ever closer to real life and CPUs attaining the ability to render the physics of hundreds of on-screen objects in real time, a few developers had a thought: why not let our players do whatever the they...

The game does handle chaos well, making for situations where entire battles will be going on around you while you fight, and they do look very impressive. Without any depth beyond this, though, the game will prove to be a novelty very quickly. If...

Remember when just being open-world was enough to make a game unique? My how times have changed huh? Now-a-days it seems like every other game on the shelf has its own sprawling world to explore. Nowadays, an open-world game has to be unique and offer...

Prototype truly comes closest to reaching its potential when you start unlocking abilities and powers - which because of some of the cheap gameplay, could take a while. Using the cheats found in the trainer, you can unlock all the abilities, along with...

Violence catches your attention, but only for so long.

The combat is fun when it isn't out of hand; over-the-top gore is pretty amusing

Bad AI, poor visuals, and confusing storytelling

Prototype Review for the PS3


Disease, violence, and identity theft. Just another day in New York City.

Huge skill tree; Solid melee mechanics

if not for the finicky camera; Ultimate Destruction Redux; Poorly balanced missions; Confusing and awkward storytelling; A lifeless open world

Good, bad... you're the guy with the telescoping horror-arms

Running amok in a huge, detailed city is a lot of fun ; More superpowers than you'll probably ever use ; Cutting down crowds of civilians is a guilty pleasure

Controls can be really imprecise ; Bosses are ridiculously tough ; Visuals are gray and unpolished

Prototype PlayStation 3 Review


Jumpkick a helicopter, hijack a tank, or just fling someone fifty meters.

Again, Prototype is not perfect, but it's a pretty good sandbox title that really makes you feel like you're as powerful as the game says you are. The mechanics are sound, but not rock-solid, the graphics are decent, though not great, and the carnage...

Prototype review


How do you review something that is complete chaos? Prototype is one of those sensory overload titles that overwhelms you with cool explosives and extreme brutality. The premise? You are Alex Mercer, a man that wakes up in a morgue and realizes that he...

Don't get me wrong, overall Prototype is a good game. The fluidity of the transfer between easy to control parkour to effortlessly slaughtering hundreds of people in a matter of seconds is amazing. The story is a bit hard to follow, but really comes...

It's Like?

The bottom line here is that Prototype just doesn't come together into a cohesive and successful form of interactive entertainment. The action is decent when everything is going right, but that isn't nearly often enough. The sandbox elements work much...
