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.
Excerpt: Not many games let you turn your arm into a long steel blade and cut people in half—top half going this-a-way, bottom half going that-a-way. Even fewer let you turn your hands into giant claws to cut off your victims’ legs, too.
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.
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...
Summary: Even with its lack of replay and inconsistent graphics, Prototype is still a worthwhile investment for anybody who wants to be the superhero. There's a lot of variety to your attacks and a great sense of pacing, especially when it comes to the first half of the game.
Summary: To conclude, I think that the game could have used some obvious improvements. The graphics were a little too far behind on the times. Animation and A.I. Could have definitely been bumped up a few notches on the people of the city. Along with detail quality of buildings and vehicles.
Summary: Manhattan Island has suffered all manner of fates in movies over the years. It was attacked by monsters in Godzilla and Cloverfield , hit by tsunamis in The Day After Tomorrow and Deep Impact , and targeted by aliens in Independence Day and Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within .
Pros: Intriguing storyline and protagonist, Varied missions that can be approached in numerous ways, Massive arsenal of moves and abilities, Plenty of activities and challenges outside of main story, Challenging, but almost never frustrating
Cons: The scenery is dull and never changes, Occasionally fiddly controls
