the 1st is good but the 2 is better.!!!
when i played the first one i was like this game is wicked but then when i play the 2 one its gonna be insane .its gonna be one of he best games from them so far one thing that sucks is u cant play as alex mercer thats a really sucky thing.
For those of you who don't feel like researching this, the extra ultimate unlock is an Alec Mercer skin. No extra Mercer power, just a skin.
Hope it's GOOD
The prequel wasn't that good. Sure it was fun cutting people and exploding them but the graphics were horrible. I hope this one has good controls and the graphics becomes better. I posted a video of ign's review at the bottom. I know they suck sometimes but I found this one fair.
Just accept the game and quit hating.
To me the game looks awesome. It is not a remake or trying to take alex mercer's place. The first game was good given that it had some glitches. It never took itself seriously it was fun and gave you cool powers and made you laugh. The second game is designed to bring not only new gameplay and progress the story, but to give players a fresh character. Not a replacement or a better character. A fresh character to build on, a man with a new goal of revenge. Alex played his role and was one of the few people that survived the first game. So they needed a way to make him apart of the second game while giving it a fresh spin, so now we have this mystery and a new character with new powers. So quit complaining about the game how it is going to tank cuz of the way they went about it. I can't wait to play. It looks awesome and I am just as excited about this one as I was about the first one. So don't hate on the game cuz its different, It is new and it looks promising.
Plan and simple, this game is purely for those that want to jump right into a game and destroy, destroy, destroy and get out. If you like Just Cause 2, Crackdown and Mercenaries this is the game for you. If you want a story driven, character driven, deep philosophical, missions that make you call your friends about what just happened type of game then walk away. Prototype 2 is instant gratification for those that want to just beat the flippin tar out of something and walk away. It's really tough to find gamer reviews that target the gamers that just like to play without thinking. I loved Crackdown and Crackdown 2. I played those until I started looking for 'Orbs' in real life and knew I had to quit. Prototype is that sort of game. Just walk into it without thinking and unleash your inner superhero! So, if your not that type of gamer.... DON'T review this game or play it. You will just give the wrong review scores to a game that doesn't cater to your type of needs!!!
Fun as heck
this game you are James Heller. Like in the first game you get powers. you get better powers. The power that I like is Tendrills.
You know what
This game gave me high hopes in the beginning with the awesome intro with Heller telling his family trust the government, but when coming home finding his wife and daughter dead. I was like yeah it's gonna be a deep storyline. Then I kept playing it's like well there's no character development. Heller is just the stereotypical angry strong guy smashing things. He swears too much you can't even believe that he even had a family. So get it if you like amazing destruction and using your powers to break things I'm saying it's really fun, but its nothing way too different from the first game. They had great ideas with the Alex Mercer bad guy thing but this just ended up to be unlasting and zero story depth.
If The Hulk and Venom had a baby
First and foremost, this is a really fun game to play. I've heard some people gripe about the story, but all in all it's actually pretty good too. As a sandbox game it gives you a very destroyed New York city. You play James Heller, Alex Mercer released a virus that made people into zombie things. They killed your wife and daughter. You mad bro? Answer. YES. So you set off to just murder him. Then he shows up tells you hes framed and gives you powers like his. Now you are crazy shapeshifting, superpowered, claw, tendril, blade monster. HAVE FUN! The controls are tight and action fast paced. You have option too, say there are a room of guys. You must kill said guys do to evil guy stuff. You can sneak around and pick them off one by one or just slice and dice them outright. It's up to you. They packed a lot of content in this game as well. All in all it's a creat game. Replay value is a little short though. I blazed through the game on Hard in under 4 hours. Once you become fully upgraded, it's a blast to just create havoc. Blackwatch is pretty evil and you are pretty good at killing evil. It's great. Play it! Claws and tendrils are the best. Black hole attack FTW.
The kept a lasting appeal it had long cutscenes which was weird yet it made the story expand more because of it
sweetos to behold
i loved the first prototype. the powers, the chaos. i love zombies. and Alex mercer is the greatest most righteous dead man walking. the game had a few bugs. but all in all the game was amazing. sure most of the time the game was getting from point a the point b. but, the powers you get in between the game from start to finish. man i was glad i made it my first ever 360 game. it was a combination of dead space, and bioshock. and radicle games made it work.so do yourself a favor and get a copy and play it like theres no tomorrow because it will last a long time. by the way infamous and prototype are two completely different games so stop comparing them. i lpve this game and i will love its sequal
