So, first digging into the game, I expected to be a lot like the first Prototype...and I wasn't wrong. Because of this, I expected it to be a little on the "meh" side. But this game actually blew me away; the controls are more polished, open-world roaming is as fast paced as ever, and the story features new characters, some of which are even likable! Once you get started upgrading Heller, you can't put the controller down! The story was kind of quick and not all that interesting, but to me, the story was a smaller part of the game; the side missions (collectables is what they're called) was a huge part of the game, and gave a lot of insight into Blackwatch, Geotek, you name it. All in all, with the New Game +, this game was a great sequel, and definitely one I recommend renting from here, or even buying!

if you didnt play part one its fine part 2 explains itself to you. a positive of the game would have to be all the violence thats in the game and the story mode.a negative of the game would be how short the game is . it took me like 4 hours to beat it or even more, but all in all the game gets a A-
Prototype 2 is a great game that delivers all that was promised and more. This game puts you in the shoes of Sergeant James Heller, a military man that was on a mission in the Red Zone when him and his team were ambushed by none other than Alex Mercer, the anti-hero of the first game. After a chase through the Red Zone, Mercer leads you to an alley where he infects you with the virus, making you the Prototype. After a web of lies leads you into doing his dirty work, the truth comes out and a battle begins between the two super-powered men. This open world adventure offers much to do in the three individual parts of NYZ. Although the story falls short of excellent, you will still want to pick this up if your looking for a good action/adventure game. The graphics are good and the abilities you gain from playing through the main story are satisfying and really add to the destructive power of Heller. The game never froze during my hours of playthrough, and there was barely any pop-in textures around the city. Overall this is a great game and I recommend it to any fan of open-world adventures.
