Rated 2 out of 5 by from SUCKED HARDCORE but good-ish story but also short hate the movement in the game didnt always go the right direction and just having 2 different parties made it hard to get wanted when needed

Rated 2 out of 5 by from dont buy When I saw all the previews and videos about this I thought it was the best game in the world so when i bought it i downloaded it which took a day then there is this stupid lil thing asking for a serial code but when you FINALLY figure it out you go on the game and then you start lagging and the controls dont work but im not saying its a bad game but there is a better chance youll have more fun on xbox or ps3

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So many bugs and no fixes in sight If you own a PC and have bought this game "cross your fingers". the first time you play it because you may be a victim of one of the game numerous bugs and there are no fixes for the PC version and no news of one either, i bought this game when it first came out and i still cant play it. i say there are better games out with companies that will support there games. don't believe me? look at there tech forms and look at views and posts. and still not patches except the forum manager who constantly apologies for the company turning its back to its customers. this game should have never been released, i will never buy a game from Activision again this was a huge let down and a loss of money and time,. i would not buy this game until there is a official patch out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun.. But can get boring. After playing the game all the way through, and then playing again with all powers, and then just running around the city and getting all the challenges, upgrades, landmarks, etc. The game will then get boring. Even though Prototype might not be one of those games that will keep you playing for months, its still one of those fun rides. The graphics were decent in my opinion (As a PC gamer I've seen far worse.), Storyline wasn't what I had expected, and the voices were just terrible in my opinion. What really matters in this game is the gameplay of it though. Having all of New York city to destroy is just.. fun. Not to mention missions can become pretty hard and difficult (depending on what difficulty your playing on.) Overall, this is worth buying, just be warned that it will get old after beating it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Game is a must grab Ok so you start off with the best opening sequences. You have three powers your in day 18 of an infection. So this basically gives ya the lowdown on the controls. So after the title goes by the story begins. The main story starts with you knowing everything but you as the player do not. then you go back to before the outbreak and after a few missions you get to another cut scene where your back at 18 days after the infection and continues like that till the last two missions where everything is revealed and OMG it is such a twist. But you have to upgrade your powers and it is worth it. This game is so intriguing you just wanna play it till you completed the game. With 31 missions to complete, 50 hints/tips to find, 200 landmarks to locate, and with 100+ memories to find, and with 50+ submissions this game will not disappoint fans at all. The length is great not your typical "oh I can complete this in 4 hours" kinda game. This is if not a title for Game of The Year

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insanely fun and addicting The range of weapons/moves/abilities are still keeping me occupied after 2 days straight. Consuming pedestrians and using their identity as a cover. The different ways of consuming others is simply brutal. High-jacking helicopters in flight. Crushing tanks with your bear hands. Leaping over buildings at high speed. The story is deep enough to keep you playing even after you've played through the main plot. Hunting down others to discover hints about Alex and the virus. The only real problem is the graphics. They're quite terrible for a next-gen game, and seeing how long we've been waiting for this title, some would expect them to be better (especially on the PC release). Graphics are meant to draw people into the game. Better lighting can set the mood of the game. Higher texture resolutions just ad more depth/realism. And shaders/materials help differ. a metal surface from a leather surface. There are a few bugs on the PC version. Screen resolution problems, random locking up (and im running this on a powerhouse PC). Hopefully a patch with address these problems. Overall... get it! You won't regret it. Even if you're not into action/free-roam games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prototype is a game of the year title! The story of Alex Mercer codename Zues is amazing in itself. You beging in the game with one of the best openings. You have three powers and get the hang of the basic controls. The story keeps going from 18 days after the infection has occured and you know who did whatever to you. Then it travels back as Alex tells of how it came to be. This game has unbelieble graphics and story. The real time changes are the best part in it. With the searching of the memory of individuals to the looking for hints/tips/landmarks to doing side missions so you can gain more EP, this game so far this year is the game to beat. Oh and when distruction happens its there in the game for the long haul. Oh and when ya pre-order the game the map and figure are amazing, even though the map only shows half of your hints and none of your landmarks.
