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
