Mostly an improvement
I cannot decide if this game should be a 7/10 or 8/10. It has so much content reused from the original that it almost feels like an expansion. However, there is a lot of new and improved features.. Combat is greatly improved, to the point where there is the absence of any challenge in the game. Movement has been streamlined to create a more efficient moving protagonist. Stealth is still atrocious at best, but is vastly improved. Point is, there are a lot new features in this game, but many features have just been reused. The story is mediocre. It evokes little except for the very beginning of the game, but then let's the ship of drama and decent writing sail away and sink. The world is bigger and more destructible, feels much more alive, but about half of it is reused from the first game (which is just an exact replica of lower Manhattan). That would be about it, except for the fact that this game has absolutely useless online features. Radical added this pointless challenges that allow the player to compare his/her score with his/her friend. The problem is, these challenges and events are so boring! Lastly, I am glad that this game almost always runs at 30fps, even though the graphics could use a major improvement.
Some people say that 2009 succesfull open world game PROTOTYPE was a copy of 2009 Sony open world game InFAMOUS , but to be honest , if i like PROTOTYPE it was because of the beastful action , gore and the powers and how does the game let you feel invincible , PRTOTYPE 2 as a good sequel its a good game , with changes to the franchise like a new protagonist looking for revenge , a new villan (our hero from PROTOTYPE) and new powers and upgrades , this game is fun at the overall , once you learn the basic movement and powers you will find yourself destroying and killing everything , overall combat system its gory and bloody , its kinda repetitive sometimes , boss fights are good also and thers a lot to collect on this game and some minigames around the city , climbing feels awesome just like the powers and i can say its a good deal , i enjoyed this game and maybe its not reallly something new compared to the 1st one , but still a fun to play game
Excitement and Desire
I've seen the screen shots, the E3 preview, and the Gameinformer pre-review. I've played the original Prototype and really liked it, this one looks promising, they say they'll fix some of the aspects the first game fell short with, so I hope they really deliver. All the new powers should give it a different feel to the first, as well as the new character and back story and different final goal (much like Dead Space into Dead Space 2, which was incredible). So as the release date closes in I hope to learn more of the game so my excitement can grow more. Can't wait!
Very fun but nothing spectacular
Prototype 2 is certainly an improvement over its predecessor, telling the tale of James Heller on his quest for vengeance. Despite a cliche and overused story, Prototype 2 still provides an interesting tale, although not as interesting as the original. That is perfectly fine as Prototype 2 is not about the story. The ridiculous amount of destruction and mayhem is what Prototype 2 is about. Combat is very similar to the original but also improves upon it. Annihilating everything from soldiers to infected to helicopters is great and it feels much smoother now . New additions like the bio bomb and pack leader add fun while the original claws and other powers brought back still do the job. The graphics are another improvement from the original. While nothing on the scale of Skyrim or Uncharted, Prototype 2 certainly does have nice visuals. The main story is not too long but with a good number of extra side missions and an endless amount of things to destory , Prototype 2 is still worth playing even once you beat it. All in all, Prototype 2 is an alright game that is extremely fun to play. It might not be game of the year, but it certainly is one of the most enjoyable.
Can not wait
I can not wait till this game comes out. I played the first game it is was a blast. My favorite part was being able to take over tanks and helicopters. I hope there will be more stuff that you can do in the secound one like being able to take control of cars and trucks. Also, It will be cool if you could use two different powers at the same time like one hand be the claw power and the other hand be the blade.
Great game but not after beating it 2 or 3 times!
The game is wicked fun because there is a lot to unlock. I beat the game 2 time and still want to play it. Short story line but radnet is rely fun as well. Brawler Packs to Bio Bombs all the new things make the game even cooler to freerome. The DLC packs expands the gameplay. The ending was good and the game has some unsuspected twists. The +new game is really cool you get all your weapons again instead of going all the way through the game to get them again. Blackbox's are a cool thing to collect because if you find enough in one area you get a mutation award. You'll love this game if you like infamous.
Should be pretty good.
I personally enjoyed the first Prototype, contrary to what many others think. It had great gameplay mixed in with the unique graphics. The story may have been weak but with sequels you just never know, they might extremely improve the series in general or bring it down. I think Prototype 2 will be pretty good, although if it doesn't do so well with the critics then I'll get it once the price drops.
BEST GAME i think of 2012
i checked it out online and i think this game will rule. i preordered it and saw the bio butt bomb kicker this was a must have for me. the only draw back is there is no multiplayer which i think could have been huge and kept players in it for even longer. but radnet edition should keep players to for the reason u can be alex mercer if you beat it. and all the new mutations and backgrounds you can get for beating radnet. overall i think this is gonna be the best game i have ever played.
so awesome i like the powers they made, activision just puted up their game i realy want to play it, people should buy this its for fun and all for you hardcore gamers out there u gotta try this, i hope they make prototype 3 =]
I Just Gotta Say
This game kills me inside i really liked alex mercer i dont see why i have to kill him in this new game. i hate heller. the new powers look cool but they didnt really show that much which makes prototype a classic and this an unknown. oh well its not going on my preorder list but i may buy it late 2012
