Prototype 2 Review (PC)

27 September 2012
  • Summary: The first Prototype came out back in 2009 and, while it delivered a pretty intense open-world experience in which players controlled the supernatural abilities of Alex Mercer, it had quite a few flaws, chief among which being its not-so-detailed version of New York City.
  • Pros: +Impressive powers, +A few clever twists in the story, +Good progression with levels and perks
  • Cons: -Textures can still look low-res sometimes, -Missions become repetitive, -Some clipping occurs in chaotic battles

Prototype 2 review

  • Excerpt: In the intro, your wife and child are killed when you unaccountably tell them to stay in New York City after a virus outbreak starts killing everyone. If you set out to hunt down the monster responsible for this tragedy – yourself – it would be a short game. So you hunt down the protagonist from Prototype 1 instead, who has just given you superpowers and awesome claw arms.

Heller Violent

Game Debate
8 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Fun’s a funny thing. Sometimes, nothing beats sitting down with a snifter of finest brandy and reading the Times Literary Supplement while Jenkins, your loyal butler, brings you Haribo Starmix on a silvered platter. On another day, however, you might want to get stuck into a complex and engrossing game of Civilization or a noodle-baking foreign art-house movie, if you’re so inclined.
  • Pros: Silly fun, Over the top powers
  • Cons: Silly story, Sometimes fiddly control

Prototype 2

Game Boyz
12 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Take control of Sgt. James Keller during the 3rd outbreak of what is now known as the Mercer Virus as he fights to avenge the death of his wife and daughter. Prototype 2 is so far the most addictive game I’ve yet reviewed, though it could be that it’s the gratuitous, over the top violence that draws me in. I mean, in real life, that would be incredibly disturbing; but in the video game world? It’s a bloody (har, har) good time.

Prototype 2 (PC) Review

2 September 2013
  • Excerpt: I have a lot of history with the first installment of the Prototype series. I was a late adopter of the the Xbox 360 console, having bought my first system in 2009, roughly 4 years after it’s launch.  Prototype, an action-adventured sandbox title developed for all three platforms by Radical Entertainment, was the first game I ever bought for the system.

Prototype 2 - Review

  • Excerpt: Prototype 2 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 is, like it's lead character Sgt James Heller, an interesting beast. It picks up the action following the events of the first Prototype game, flinging you into a New York that has been sectioned off, quarantined and put under rather dubious surveillance following the outbreak of the Blacklight Virus seen in the original Prototype three years ago. Seems like a long explanation to begin, yes?
  • Pros: Almost effortless gameplay, Compelling and revealing story, Expanding powers are fun to play with
  • Cons: After Heller is exposed to the Blacklight Virus (and given the very strong suggestion of who the real enemy might be) you set off into the city to piece together exactly what is going on, and never has the phrase "having the run of the place" been so apt than in Prototype 2. Like in the original game, you can effortlessly run all over the streets and buildings with very few limits, which is very handy once the bad guys get you in their sights., Opening cut-scenes are ...

Prototype 2

3 September 2013
  • Summary: Het virus is amper uit Manhatten verdwenen of Prototype 2 laat datzelfde virus weer los in de stad. Miljoenen geïnfecteerden, tientallen gemuteerde beesten en zwaar bewapende monsters maken de straten opnieuw onveilig. Met de welbekende moves uit deel 1, wat extra toevoegingen in deel 2 en met het idee in mijn achterhoofd weer helemaal los te gaan ben ik de game gaan spelen. Om nou te zeggen dat ik Manhatten veiliger maak, ik denk het niet.
  • Pros: Alles draait om verhaal, Nieuwe krachten, Vijanden met superkrachten, Geslaagd jaagsysteem
  • Cons: Eentonigheid, Veel acties pas laat bruikbaar

Prototype 2: Jetzt kommt die PC-Version

3 July 2013
  • Summary: Im ersten Spieldrittel fällt auf, dass die Entwickler die meisten Nebenmissionen ständig nach demselben Schema gestrickt haben: Soldaten absorbieren, Militärbasen unterwandern, Supermutanten bezwingen. Später gibt es weitere Auftragsvarianten. Spielerisch unterscheidet sich Prototype 2 nicht von den Fassungen für PS3 und Xbox 360. Dies bedeutet, dass auch auf dem Rechner eine gelungene Materialschlacht auf die nächste folgt.
