  • Conclusion: I so wanted to love [Prototype] . In the end I could't, no matter how hard I tried to. If you like its premise then go get it anyway. Just don't expect it to be as great as it seems on paper. Or just wait for the price to drop.

  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Since the first teaser trailers hit the gaming scene, there’s been a lot of buzz about Prototype. The early gameplay footage looked frenzied and full of action, and we couldn’t wait to get our hand on the real thing. Having finally had a chance to give Prototype a spin on the Playstation 3, I have to come away with some mixed thoughts.

Prototype review (PS3)

HonestGamers
28 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Correct me if I'm wrong, but Prototype may be the first game since Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 2 where the core mechanic revolves around consuming people. This, in and of itself, makes the game awesome. The question as to how awesome is a bit trickier, as Prototype is one of the most unique and schizophrenic games I've played in recent memory. The game introduces Alex Mercer, a moody bloke with amnesia and super powers (i.e.

  • Conclusion: Prototype is well worth your attention, but give it a rental to see for yourself. For me, I'm glad I stuck with it through to the end, but it wasn't without a lot of frustration and repetition.

Prototype (PS3)

EL33TONLINE
18 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Prototype is an open-world action adventure game that seems to test the very boundaries of videogames as we know them. Unfortunately it doesn’t manage to break all these boundaries successfully but, despite its shortcomings, it’s a hell of a good romp.

  • Summary: Manhattan Island has suffered all manner of fates in movies over the years. It was attacked by monsters in Godzilla and Cloverfield , hit by tsunamis in The Day After Tomorrow and Deep Impact , and targeted by aliens in Independence Day and Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within . But though I am Legend comes close, the New York borough has never before been subjected to a disaster quite like that depicted in Prototype.
  • Pros: Intriguing storyline and protagonist, Varied missions that can be approached in numerous ways, Massive arsenal of moves and abilities, Plenty of activities and challenges outside of main story, Challenging, but almost never frustrating
  • Cons: The scenery is dull and never changes, Occasionally fiddly controls
