In all fairness I didn't like the first prototype, but I thought I'd give this one a try. It just didn't do it for me.
Simply put Prototype 2 is a 3rd person view, open world, button masher. You do feel like a killing machine. You are extremely powerful. If you liked the first one I think you'll like this one just as much or better.
If you didn't like the first one I don't think enough has changed for you to enjoy #2.
For those with kids this game is filled with profanity. If you don't want them talking like drunken sailors you shouldn't let them play this game.
1) you feel awesomely powerful
2) graphics are good
3) interesting things like shape shifting and consuming
1) camera angles were a little clunky at times
2) tons of profanity
3) story is only okay
If you did not care much for the frist Prototype then you wont like the 2nd. Has some cool kill moves alot of blood upgrades are Nice- But the missions most of them are just a Bore. Search for this Doctor search for this Guy so on and so on. Its worth playing but not worth 60 bucks!! Great Rent are a nice buy at 24 bucks sorry folks!!
Simply fun... This sequel is great, continuing from the first Prototype. It plays as a third-person free roam game that keeps an easy to learn, intuitive gameplay with a great story and combat system that allows you to play however you like.
The story is about James Heller.
Returning from leave in the Military -- Sargent James Heller had a family waiting for him at his home in New York. Anxiously anticipating to get home, Heller listen as his family's problems started as Black Watch reappears to counter measure the Mercer virus outbreak.
The Mercer Virus was thought to be eradicated, but a spanning new outbreak had emerged that was rapidly spreading to the public of New York.
Heller finally makes it home, only to find his family killed by Alex Mercer. Filled with hate and anguish, Heller reinstated into the military to hunt Alex Mercer down.
You will have to purchase this title to get a new online feature called Radnet. It is a dynamic leader board that gives awards and extra missions, while online. It gives additional missions, but doesn't interfere with the story line. It makes the title replayable as new activities and missions are added routinely.
The new title is great, they still keep the same control elements and keep the combat simple. The town evolves dynamically as, so does you. Instead of requiring you to stop and upgrade your stats... They implemented the ability to popup when you are to upgrade/evolve -- It was a great addition, for many times you would forget about needing to add new features to your character as you progressed through the game. You can do everything by stealth or go all out Rambo-style.
This game is awesome in every aspect and is definitely worth a rent and purchase.
