Weak

Prototype 1 with different main character

Completely the same game as the first. The virus doesn't spread to a different major city like Chicago or Boston, so all the mapping and layouts were basically recycled from the first one. A few new enemies introduced but nothing that really grabs your fancy. I played through on hard and died maybe a dozen times, so it really wasn't much of a challenge. Speaking of challenges, the game did away with the medal scores for racing along rooftops and collecting items or finding people, which is a complete bummer. The game gives out achievements like candy, which shouldn't necessarily be the reason to play a game but it does create an incentive to some degree. Horrible story of a man looking for his daughter, that at random, was chosen and kept alive and never really killed... LAME. Played out plot and uninspiring game play make for a mirror image of the first game with a different main character. I am sure there are many other things I could say but I don't really care to waste more time on this review than I already have. Seriously a 4 at best.

This game is fun but it gets a little repetitive later in the game but is stil worth a rent. would recommend a rent compared to a buy.

i enjoyed the first prototype game. very fun to run around a city with crazy powers and being able to destroy things in a fun manner. this game is same. exactly the same. and that's the problem.

the characters have no depth, and the entire world seems to built around black, red, and brown. i found myself forcing myself to play this game or else i'd fall asleep, something which happened quite a few times.
