Excerpt: Three weeks ago a virus was released in Penn Station and you woke up in a morgue. After taking out a military squad and a few creatures, you will get to know the game a little better, so it's a bit like a tutorial. Then you meet with a mystery man whose face you cannot see. You have less than an hour to kill the last person responsible for the virus.
Excerpt: Every memorable game—be it good or bad—has at lease one defining moment. Moments that leave you in disgust, wondering why you shelled out your hard-earned money for such a travesty. Or, moments that inspire awe, that captivate you and reaffirm your decision to invest in the game. For me, that moment came in the very first cut-scene Prototype had to offer.
Excerpt: Prototype Review Script Platform Tested: Xbox 360 Video games based on comic book characters are nothing new, but while you know what you’re getting with a Hulk or Spider-Man game, with titles like Prototype where the comic came after the game, it can be a crapshoot. After shape-shifting publishers and enduring delays, this open world action game’s outbreak is ready to break out.
Excerpt: Close your eyes. Imagine for a moment that you are the most powerful force of destruction mankind has ever encountered. Whatever you've got in mind, I highly doubt it measures up to the kind of powers you are given in Prototype , the new sandbox action game from the talented minds behind 2005's The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction .

Excerpt: Alex Mercer is having a really bad or a really good day Blur Studios is making a name for themselves On the audio side of things, funny enough, it The beginning of the game gives a brief taste of The storyline in Prototype is unveiled in an interesting fashion Overall there are 31 main story missions, 131 Persons of Interest, and a deluge of powers that unlock over the course of the game.
Summary: Some minor issues with the camera sometimes not keeping up, but there is no slow down regardless of on-screen action. Draw distance is good, with no pop in that I could see. Character detail is good as well. Crisp sound effects, weapons sound specific to each type, and explosions sound like explosions. No tedious powering up so you can get places. The choice of using stealth or rushing in all limbs blazing adds some nice variety. Free roaming is a blast.
