X360A Review: Prototype 2
Written Monday, April 30, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Having been the hero of the first Prototype, Alex Mercer is back for the sequel, except this time he's the bad guy and new protagonist Sgt. James Heller is out for revenge, as he seeks to murder his maker. That's about all you need to know about Prototype 2, a game that drops you slap-bang into the middle of New York Zero and then gives you all the power you need to have fun.
As an open-world playground, could it be one of the best out there or is it just a bland city with nothing to do? Does Prototype 2 address the shortcomings of Prototype 1 or is it a lazy sequel? Is the story any good? Is Heller a cool character? Are the powers fun to wield? And most imoportantly, is it still awesome to karate kick a helicopter out of the sky?
