Prototype – PC Review

Unigamesity
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.

Prototype (PC) - Review

VGChartz
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...

Prototype

Auracore MediaWorks
6 July 2009
  • Summary: Jumpkick a helicopter, hijack a tank, or just fling someone fifty meters.
  • Pros: A wide variety of objectives; large amount of upgrades; intense action; lots of options for combat; good targeting system; enough gameplay to keep you occupied for a while.
  • Cons: Sub-par graphics; constant army attacks can get repetitive; camera can't keep up; movement gets a little difficult to control.

Defunct Games
23 June 2009
  • 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.

Prototype Review (PC)

OCModShop
15 June 2009
  • 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.

Expert Review

13 June 2009
  • 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.

PROTOTYPE

ActionTrip
11 June 2009
  • Conclusion: Prototype easily stomps over numerous boring movie-based action games we've seen lately and effectively covers all the necessary themes to engulf gamers in a relatively interesting horror/sci-fi story.
  • Pros: Decent story, enjoyable free-roam action game with plenty of challenges, great gameplay, a wide choice of supernatural powers and vehicles to toy around with, dashing through the city and across rooftops is fun;
  • Cons: Perhaps they should've incorporated a multiplayer mode, some character abilities feel redundant, battles tend to get a bit overwhelming, little replay value.

Prototype Review (PS3)

Yet Another Review Site
15 December 2009
  • Excerpt: If this is the Prototype, then I look forward to the real version! Once every few years a title comes along that epitomises what free-roaming games should all be like. Numbered among these classics are Super Mario 64, Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time, Spider Man 2 and the Shadow Of The Colossus.
  • Pros: + Awesome gameplay., + Vast, sprawling city to explore., + Tonnes of stuff to do.
  • Cons: – Hardly a gripping narrative., – Non-existent soundtrack.
