Expert Review

24 April 2012
  • Excerpt: What do you get when you take a city like in Grand Theft Auto, replace the armies of cops with real armies outfitted with helicopters and tanks, and give yourself some ridiculously over the top super powers? The answer is Prototype, an action game made by Radical Entertainment. While there may be quite a few similarities to the GTA series such as the sandbox city structure and story driven missions, it isn't long into your first mission that you realize that Prototype...

Prototype – PC Review

3 November 2010
  • Excerpt: From the start you should know one thing: Prototype is not a game, it’s not a sandbox game, nor an action game, nor anything else: it is a huge explosion. A blast. The biggest nuke in the world, detonated on the screen. What does that mean, after all? Well… read my Prototype review and find out!

4cr Review – Prototype

  • 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. Alex Mercer’s incredible set of powers and his determination make for an excellent anti-hero, and Prototype puts you in his shoes so comfortably well that when you’re not playing, you’ll want to be able to run up...

Test Prototype

  • Conclusion: Héros redoutable aux multiples aptitudes, Alex Mercer n'en est pas moins attachant. On apprécie le jeu pour quelques points essentiels : son scénario, les super-pouvoirs très jouissifs d'Alex et l'action dynamique que nous sert le titre tout au long de la partie. S'il enthousiasme suffisamment pour que nous lui donnions une bonne note, il ne faut pas perdre de vue en revanche les quelques défauts qui ont tendance à agacer.
  • Pros: Scénario, Action omniprésente, Pouvoirs d'Alex très jouissifs à utiliser, Original sur certains points, Durée de vie
  • Cons: Des graphismes en deçà des attentes, Difficulté mal dosée, Redondance des missions

  • Summary: Yes, a less pulpy story and more detailed Manhattan would have been welcome, but what Prototype does well it does awesomely well. Even better, after you finish the story mode, Prototype lets you start a new game with all your accumulated powers intact—why save Manhattan, we thought, when we could rip a hole through it instead? With great power comes great irresponsibility.
  • Pros: Spectacular, bloody combat with plenty of room for replay. Beautifully animated parkour moves.
  • Cons: Uninspired missions and post-game challenges. The story is literally scattered all over the place.

Prototype – PC Review

11 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Even though a blast, as I said in the introduction, Prototype is kind of a chaotic one. It still remains a blast, indeed, but one you can’t really control as you would’ve wished to. However, Radical’s game does manage to deliver what an action title should: fun, tons of enemies (or at least living beings) to destroy, awesome attack moves and superhuman abilities.

PC Review - 'Prototype'

4 September 2009
  • Summary: Prototype tells the story of Alex Mercer — a man haunted by his past, fighting a secret war in New York City. As the action spirals out of control, a conspiracy tied to his origins threatens the future of mankind itself.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Traversing New York through a series of leaps, bounds, air dashes, and glides is exhilarating.
  • Cons: Some mission objectives are more obscure than they need to be.

Prototype (PC) - Review

12 July 2009
  • Excerpt: Prototype is, at its heart, the game that so many superhero games of the past have always wanted to be. From the supremely terrible Superman 64 to the surprisingly decent Spider-Man 3 , superhero games have always reached for that epic experience but inevitably seem to come up well short of that goal with only a few minor exceptions in the entire history of gaming.
