  • Conclusion: Seriously, that does not get old. Don’t even get me started on throwing people fifty feet into the air just to have them land in the ocean. Despite some very minor camera issues, Prototype is an immensely enjoyable game full of great action and storytelling.

Prototype – PC Review

11 September 2009

AV Club
16 July 2009
  • Conclusion: Grittier and more gratuitously violent than InFamous , Prototype is a mature, science-fiction superhero fantasy that somehow makes players feel simultaneously powerful and vulnerable.
