Don't do it, unless you have a penchant for horrible frame rates, with even the fastest CPUs on the market...

  • Summary: I'm sure this is a great game, yadda yadda (actually, it looks pretty silly and juvenile 15 minutes in, but I digress), but with a 2500K at 4.5 GHz (faster than any CPU on the market at stock speeds, per core; see below), I'm seeing an average of a very clearly CPU-limited 47-50 fps. Anything under 60 fps, minimum (barring loading), is unacceptable to me, let alone a port from 2009. This game couldn't be programmed worse than it is.

  • Summary: I have Windows 8.1 and when I downloaded the game I only received a folder labeled "Prototype Download" on my desktop. There was no way to complete the installation of the game.

Super Repulsive

  • Summary: I bought this game since it was on sale and had a relatively high rating. I should have done more research. The "hero" goes around killing people and absorbing them. There is no way to even attempt to justify it either since many of the people are innocent civilians or soldiers just doing their job. It is gory and makes me sick just thinking about it. Even if you have no conscience and can actually get past the moral problems of the game, it is just not even fun.

Horrible performance - CPU dependant

Boomhauer, Amazon
17 November 2012
  • Summary: Never got a chance to play beyond the initial kill spree. It has horrible performance on my system 4GB / Win7 x64 with an ATI video card I play many other AAA titles on. Quick search of forums seem to substantiate my claims. Tom's Hardware even noticed that this game is CPU dependent for it's rendering. I bought the Prototype 1 / 2 bundle. Hopefully the P2 will play better than P1.

Blah!

  • Summary: This game sucks! I am really easy to please too! All I will say is it sucks that you play the game and build up all these cool powers only for them to be taken from you. Oh and then it throws everything at you afterwards. I really didn't like this game.

Audio broken

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 August 2012
  • Summary: The audio for this game is broken. The music sounds ok but the SFX and voices are non-existent. I downloaded it twice and it still fails to work. This game for PC is a waste of money and you should save it until Amazon offers a product that is not defective.

Worst Game Ever!!!!!!

  • Summary: The hame was horrible. The story line was very repetitive. The graphics were very bad. It wasn't that much fun because of the lack of things to do.

  • Summary: If you own a PC and have bought this game "cross your fingers". the first time you play it because you may be a victim of one of the game numerous bugs and there are no fixes for the PC version and no news of one either, i bought this game when it first came out and i still cant play it. i say there are better games out with companies that will support there games. don't believe me? look at there tech forms and look at views and posts.
