I played this game and it was suprisingly good. I thought you would be done with the game after you beat it, but I was totally wrong. This game is incredibally awsome. The gameplay is far out, and the interface is incredible, and the sound is great. The game itself is really gory. And it is kind of challenging in some parts, other than that, the game is awsome. You have the ability to demolish almost anything in the free roam. And you have the ability to change yourself into people. That lets you hide from enemys. My friends come over every day to play prototype, and they don't even like the ps3! I recomend this game to anyone who likes killer, gory, action packed, adventure games. And it is absolutally worth the price. This game is really good so go get yours right now.
Could have been Better
Prototype is a really good game I was kinda ehhh about it at first but after reading reviews and watching videos online I decided to give it a try
I really like this game but it just fails in so many ways to be something in my collection Ill recommend to someone whos not 12 and bored
Story is Okay
You play as Alex Mercer an Anti Hero trying to find out about his past
Cut scenes are short and dont give you a chance to get to know who you are playing as
kill mutants, soldiers, and pedestrians
you can steel someones identity by consuming them complete challenges and earn new abilities which are really cool but its not enough to keep you playing for hours on as it gets to much fighting and killing things blowing up all at once
my main issue with this game was that it looks like it should have came out it 2004 nothing pretty about the graphics even the 30 second long cutscenes look dated
Pros: Ability to turn into ultimate killing machine
Cons: Graphics, Cutscenes, and too much Action all at once
Prototype the right way
CHALLENGE- i gave it a 9 because playing through on easy is nothing but when playing on hard that is an other story. GRAPHICS/ ANIMATION- I gave this an 8 because the in game graphics could use work but the cutscenes look great. LENGTH- I gave the game length a 9 because you can play through it at your own pace and with all the side missions it has some lengthy gameplay STORY LINE- I gave this games story line an 8 it has a good story line with twists that some would never see coming. CONTROLLS- I gave the controls a 10 it is easy to pick up and get used to and once you are it is awsome runing through New York. INTERFACE- I gave this a 8 because the way the game interacts with you isnt perfect but it is good enough to get into. SOUND- I the in game sound is great for the game when you are spoted by the enemy an epic fight?chase music plays wich makes the game feel more cinematic. That is my review for prototype i like this game it is great game with a good storyline and chalenging gameplay enjoy
Kill EVERYTHING... Like a Boss
I love this game!!!!! Are you havin a bad day? well blow off some steam on this game by mindlessly running around New York City and kill whatever you want and how you want. What i think made this game so awesome is the fact that Alex Mercer has the power of Polymorphism ( in english, a shape-shifter ) and turning your hand into anything from razor sharp claws to a giant whip to huge rock hands ( more like mallets ) to a sick lookin blade that replaces your entire arm. This game is boss...
No Matter What... 10 Out Of 10!
This game is flipping awesome. From the story to the superpowers to the combat and then to the free roaming. I don't care about the graphics (even if it's terrible) I loved it so much I played the game for 3 months and not got bored.
Good and Fun
This game is EXTREMELY fun! There are all sorts of things you can do in this game, such as driving tanks, helis, shooting, slicing, crushing, dicing etc. etc. The storyline is good... but I can't say to much about that because I didn't do side missions where I was supposed to go out and find people that would show me my past and how Alex Mercer ended up as he did. The graphics were not very bad compared to my favorite PS3 games such as MGS4, KZ2, GT5, COD, GTA IV, or AC2 (Assassin's Creed's graphics were pretty dang good DURING gameplay, but DEFINITELY NOT DURING VIDEOS :p which is weird because 99% of the time its always vice versa). On the "easiest" difficulty this game is not challenging, you will whiz right through it, but on "medium" or "hard" you will be very challenged to fight off and survive the mutant freaks that patrol Manhattan. On another note, I dislike it when people claim this game isn't good because it is very fun to play, and thats all you can ask of a game right, for it to entertain you? So IMO, buy this game!... or at least rent it.
I love this game
OK let me start off by saying that this is not a break through in gaming... BUT this game is fun by all means. I'm not huge on Graphics so the games looks is fine by me. It's fast pace and never really slows down. You gain EXP and unlock abilitites as you progress through the main missions. the controls are tight but the targeting system can get you in trouble when a lot is going on. The amount of destruction is off the meter and the way he zip across the city is amazing. Alot of people compare this to inFamous and they shouldn't they both are free roam games but this is pure action and infamous as it's action but with choices. My only downside is the side missions, there's no side story just lil kill this many people, run through check points, absorb these people type of things. I own both and love em both but I'd pick prototype cause I love the pace and the without consequence senseless gameplay. Have fun gamers
When first looking at the game in the game informer magazine, i was impressed I kept that mag' to see when the game was coming out. I even pre-orderd the game. When i got it, i was excited. I poped it in and BAM! my dreams came true. About a hour in....i was disappointed. When you had the shield power, it didnt work. It was supposed to take some damage but i took ALL of it. The good thing out of the game was the shape shifting. It was awesome but had flaws. The level of challenge in the game was good, I was dying a lil more than expected on easy difficulty. I think i died mainly on the defense powers. The attack powers were good and deadly UPCLOSE. The further back the mutants are, the less accurate it becomes. Overall the game sucks. If there is a part 2, they need a lot of improvements. The game has a lot of potential and a lot of great ideas but they couldn't capitalize. i would consider a part 2 but right now....NOPE!
This is a good game.
I got this game a Few day ago and i love it. Its a lot like the Spider-man games where the main story missions are the focus of the game and the side missions are just fun things to do like checkpoints races and the like. play on a full HD TV and i don't know why everyone says the graphic suck the looks awesome on my TV no pixilation or any of that other crap people are saying. This is not a game for GTA players as i said before this game is almost exactly like Spider-man. I found the controls very easy to get used to. the targeting system is lock on. no there is no free aim but you do auto aim at the nearest enemy in front of you if you aren't locked on. the killing does get kind of repetitive but i like killing stuff so it doesn't completly bore me the my purpose of the killing is to earn evolution point to up grade your powers it take a lot but you earn them easy. i found the vehicle driveing easy to get used to. overall i really like this game and i don't think i wasted a cent. If you liked spiderman get this game
Gameplay is repetetive and graphics look last gen.
Sorry but this game just isnt what it was hyped up to be, though i never thought by the screens that it would be all that different or special anyways. Take your saber thats on your hand, kill everyone and destroy everything in site. Yay what a concept, the graphics could have very easily have been the the regular xbox and rate up with some of the worst i've ever seen on a next gen console. Its a pretty long game, although i'm not sure how long because i shut it off because i got tired of it. Its a cross of Grand Theft Auto, which i'm not a fan of anyways, Infamous(get it instead) and a very very violent Assassins Creed, maybe even Dead Rising. So all in all its just a basic run, kill, run more, slice bodies, get in machines kill, kill kill. If you like that its fine, but there is not story basically. Probably the worst looking thing about the game is the blood its laughable.VERY!! Get something else, heck get anything else this is a stinker.
