Prototype 2: Damn Good Fun
I wasn’t a big fan of the first Prototype. For me, both Crackdown and Infamous were waaaaaay better superhero, open-world games. But I gotta say, Prototype 2 is pretty damn fun. It finds that perfect balance of upgrading your character to ridiculous levels, where you really do feel like the ultimate badass, while still remaining (fairly) challenging. The targeting system can be a bitch, as it apparently decides on its own, which things are most important to target… As a result I am often left frantically trying to lock on to my desired target in the heat of battle… LAme.
But this problem aside, the game is really a ton of fun. While the complaints of some that the missions are a bit repetitive, are reasonable, the point is that you upgrade so fast and gain so many new abilities, that missions never feel or play the same as you progress. The point of Prototype 2 is that you are a badass that can F!@# $#!T up… And it overachieves at this. Watch out Crackdown… There’s a new sheriff in town…
