Weak

Too much emphasis on "stealth"

Prototype 2 controls and plays pretty much the same as the first game, meaning I always felt like I was "floating" through the game world and nothing I did had any real weight to it, even when falling from hundreds of feet in the air. By contrast, inFamous' controls seem to pack a punch, and you feel as if you have more control over your character.

This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but you are never really allowed to just "run with" your new powers in P2 in the early game. Many of the missions require you to "stealth" Consume a target, find some info, then run away. You don't really get to be this awesomely powered "hero" you are portrayed to be. Since the early game just wasn't any fun, I never got to see if P2 had the same fun side missions where you tried to hit waypoints as fast as possible, kill a certain number of baddies in a time limit, etc.
More emphasis was placed on the boring story, and the characters made it seem like every little consumed memory was this world altering reveal, but as the player I didn't understand what was going on (or just didn't care).

Overall, Prototype still plays second fiddle to the far superior inFamous series in the land of "sand box" superhero games. Hopefully this is make it back in time so I can get The Amazing Spiderman to see how it compares.

Visually stunning kills and matrixy physics action. If you have played the first one then there really going to be many suprises for you which in this game works for me. The platinum trophy was easy to get which is awesome. So basically if you like apocalyptic themes with hordes of undead\mutants and other frightening genetic mutations, and tons of hack n slash fun. Then youll love this. A must rent.

i played part one and it was actually surprisingly good. so idecided to rent this. played at least half our. god. its the same exact thing as part one. part one was really repetitive and prototype 2 was exactly the same with diff character and story. graphics are the same, gameplay the same, missions are similar. was getting bored of 1st one but ended it. could not go another whole game playing the same exact thing.
