*spoilers* Ending

Ok so I just finished the game, surprisingly quickly. I've done all of the Radnet quests, and most of everything else. But the story didn't seem to be has vast as the last one, very little reference to pariah or anything of real interest...

Did anyone else think that Mercer's whole motive/personality was wrong? I mean at the end of the first game you save NY, and you hate blackwatch/gentek and it is all about him redeeming his human self. Which in turn makes him a better man the he was before he became the virus.

But in this he's just a flat out bad guy...Why? It's completely against his original MO. I get the revenge thing but taking over the world? Becoming a comic book villain to try control the world? WTF?

I was really hoping that he'd be corrupted some how, that I could have accepted, but to suddenly do this to him makes no sense.

Did i miss something in the side story stuff that explains why he's gone off the deep end?

What did everyone else think?

Meh lol gameplay etc was enjoyable but jeez how short! I only need 1 more upgrade (ran out of consume upgrades) and need a lot more EP to level up so got to do a new game once thats done I'm gonna sell it while it's worth a ton if dlc adds anything good/achievements (dout it very much) I'll rebuy on the mega cheap. Meh least with stuff like crackdown has reasons to keep it (messing in co-op etc) or just cause 2 (huge sp game)

No idea what else they have been working on but for time since prototype 1... is that it ?

I'm not one 2 really speak considering I havent played P2 but if memory serves me right didn't the real Mercer save NY n when he left the crow/raven that touched the virus residue became the clone Mercer. I remember this clone Mercer giving a mean/evil look before u were able 2 free roam. Could this be the bad Mercer u r seeing in P2?

I really hated the fact that I couldn't get into this story as much as I did with the first one. Everything seemed so rushed together. I got this game Wednesday, I've already done all the side missions, collectibles, and all consumes. All I have to do now is level up three times and beat it on hard.

The main thing I didn't like about this game was how evil Alex was, he was much better in the first.

u need to read the comics. it explains why mercer is such a bad guy in prototype 2. basically, he tried to save a family he was staying with in the mountains but they turned out as crooked as criminals so he just realised humans arent worth saving. fuck em.

Oh i might get the comics now then, but if it's the whole "he lost faith in humanity" chestnut then he should have come across better in the game. He still comes across as a old comic book villain who takes over the world because he knows best.

Basically in the comic he comes to the conclusion that humanity really isn't worth saving. He tries to find a reason to believe in humanity, but everything he sees makes him more disillusioned until he finally decides to wipe humanity out and start again.

I have never been so pissed in my life. The comics are weak and retarded. Alex is nothing more then a cheap Saturday morning cartoon villain.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't he NOT a human at all? Wasn't it the case that he was just a mutated form of the virus that took the shape/personality of Mercer because he was the last host before he died (This was the big plot reveal from the first game if I recall correctly)?

If that's the case, why would he even care about saving humanity? I thought that was why he was already the villain if the second game, because he was already planning on wiping humanity and turning all living beings to an infect creature like him?
