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.
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.
Excerpt: Several months after its console debut – the so-so sales of which lead to Activision closing its developer – open-world superhero game Prototype 2 is now out on PC. I’ve been hulking out, wall-running up tall buildings and eating people alive for the last few days, and then I played some Prototype...
Summary: A solid port is nothing to scoff at. Prototype 2 finally makes its way to the PC after debuting on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 back in April, and the transition has been kind to this brutal open-world adventure.
Pros: Empowering movement mechanics, A huge variety of deadly attacks, Incentives for experimenting, Collectibles are fun to hunt down, Solid port
Cons: Almost no challenge, Contains little that hasn't been seen before, Keyboard and mouse controls are clunky
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...
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.
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...
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 ...
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.
Pros: Alles draait om verhaal, Nieuwe krachten, Vijanden met superkrachten, Geslaagd jaagsysteem
Cons: Eentonigheid, Veel acties pas laat bruikbaar
