Perfect

Makes infamous look like frogger

This game is amazing. It truly puts infamous to SHAME because they are almost the exact same style of game. A sandbox game with super powers. You get all the ones from infamous powers (gliding, climbing buildings but faster, shooting) but it also has soooooo many more melee powers it makes this a totally different and better game. And you can steel tanks and helicopters and drive them around destroying the city!!!!

i was really excited when this game came out but after a few hours it got sorta boring
the good
#1: good story
#2 i liked the consume and the weaponization part
#3 ok graphics
the bad
#1 the ai is not smart when they discover you. you like a block away and then they lose you
#2 repetitive
#3 colleting items is like looking when your blind you dont even see the land mark until you pass it
#4 the parkour is broken

A Great Game RUINED BY THE F BOMB!!!!

Wow was my first reaction to prototype. Beautiful graphics great control schyme and for the most part excellant sound. Except for one severely glaring problem. The language. The story in prototype isn't anything we haven't seen in movie's or books before and it is done extremelly well. The way the story and your knowledge of it and the back story move along with each person you consume is genius. But as I said at the beginning, the amount of F bomb's is something that is unacceptable. It truely gets to the point that you wonder if the voice over actor has turets syndrome and can't stop swearing. This game is like the 10 year old boy, (you know the one your parents didn't want you hanging around, the bully kid in the neighborhood) that just learned how to use the F word. Now since this 10 year old learned what it thinks is a great word it uses it for everything. Sadly in the space of just a few seconds it isn't uncommon to hear several and I mean several F Bomb explosions! They go off like carpet bombing runs. With each F bomb setting of another!

If this game would have left out most if not all of this language sadly it would have been a truely awesome game.
