Expert Review

  • 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...

Test Prototype

Generation NT
14 December 2009
  • 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

Prototype

  • 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

Unigamesity

  • 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.

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 goal with only a few minor exceptions in the entire history of gaming.

  • 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.

  • 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. At the end of the day it's a violent action game that should please just about anybody that likes this style of open-world gameplay.

PROTOTYPE

ActionTrip
2 November 2007
  • 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. It may lack somewhat in the visuals department, which didn't matter much from where we were standing. Despite some of its downsides, this is still one of the better action games we've played this year.
  • 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.
