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: With a 2500K at 4.5 GHz (faster, per core, than any stock-clocked CPU on the market; see below), I'm seeing an average of a very clearly (GPU utilization nowhere near 100%) 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. Aside from that, I had to download a modified .dll file to attain a resolution higher than 720p. Heck of a port, guys..
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.
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.
Summary: this may need xp--I have win 7--3g quad core processer-1g video card,so I do not think any tbl is with my computer-after dnload-tryed to run game & it was just unplayable...video jerk-not even playable--I contacted amazon for help & they suggested I contact activision ?? Very nice !! SO--STAY AWAY FROM GAME DOWNLOADS !!
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.
Summary: This should be, and would be, a fantastic game -- if it worked. The game mechanics and story are tons of fun. The problem - and it is a biggie - is that, at least on Vista, the game is so unstable that it has become unplayable for me. Cut scenes freeze, forcing you to kill the game from Explorer and start over. Savepoints don't save, forcing you to go back to previous savepoints -- sometimes, from hours (of real time) ago.
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.
