Manhattan Island has suffered all manner of fates in movies over the years. It was attacked by monsters in Godzilla and Cloverfield, hit by tsunamis in The Day After Tomorrow and Deep Impact, and targeted by aliens in Independence Day and Final...

A real superhero action game.

Something that everyone will talk about, and with good reason, is the graphics. Yes we all don't want to be graphic whores but with how great games are looking these days, you can really see when one is lacking in a few areas. The virtual New York...

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...

From the beginning, Prototype 2 makes an effective case for its hero – James Heller is a broken, sympathetic man who did the right things and had the wrong results. While serving his country in whatever desert country we're at war with currently, his...

Well-written storyline videos and audiologs ; Fun open-world exploration ; Well integrated combat and movement mechanics

Occasionally repetitive, button-mashing combat ; Boring in-game chatter

Equal opportunities for smashing up an open world, and experiencing an emotional story.

With the sheer volume of video gaming developers, studios, and titles hitting the various consoles; the most common inference that reviewers place to new titles is the fact that game A seems a lot like game B or that parts of game A borrow elements...

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’s James Heller out superheroes every other superhero that’s ever appeared in a videogame. He’s faster and stronger than Batman, more focused than the Hulk, has a larger arsenal than Spiderman, and is funnier than Superman. In other words:...

[Prototype] kind of just came out of nowhere. In a world full of serious sandbox games, the ability to play as infected anti-hero Alex Mercer allowed us to dip, dive, glide, and destroy more objects than any game since Hulk: Ultimate Destruction

Prototype 2

 

Prototype 2 is a silly game. Its promotional material may try to paint it as something else but its sensibilities remain right in line with its flawed predecessor. The Johnny Cash-laden trailer – full of dead families and sad photographs - may try to...

That it even exists is perplexing. That it’s as enjoyable as it is despite limited changes is a gleeful occurrence.

As the old adage goes, absolute power corrupts absolutely, but having absolute power in Prototype 2 is so damn liberating, that it's hard to care about anti-hero Sgt. James Heller's gradual downward spiral as his humanity ebbs away. As a lead...

A relentlessly fun game, Prototype 2 is marred only by a barely decipherable story and a dull, unsympathetic character in Sgt. James Heller. Everything is geared towards showing you a good time though, and if you can switch off your brain, you'll enjoy...

Product Specifications

Discover what lies beyond the edge of evolution. An all-new, third-person open-world/action game, Prototype puts gamers at the helm of Alex Mercer - a genetically mutated shape-shifter with no memory of his past hell-bent on solving the mystery of his existence - as he tears through a densely populated New York city moving with Parkour-style fluidity and consuming anybody that gets in his way...assuming their physical identity, memories and abilities. Fueled by three key factions consisting of Alex, the Blackwatch (military) and a viral outbreak known as the Infected, players will venture into a deep, dark conspiracy 40 years in the making!
