Prototype

Postby Netwatcher on Wed Jul 01, 2009 7:48 am

First all, the graphics!
It's amazing, even with my NVIDIA GeFORCE 7600GT it looks liked a frigging awesome movie!

And everything is there to give you that feeling, the pause menue is awesome by itself, just looks amazing and that's where you spend almost half the time of your game, purchasing upgrades, watching your memories and looking at the map ;)

So why is prototype so amazing?
not only it has an awesome story, the game lets you play in a "free roam" mode, which is the good old Do-whatever-you-want mode, you can hijack helicopters and tanks, glide above the city, run REALLY fast, infilitrate army facilities, destroy infected hives and ALL that actually affects the city, the city is evolving as the story goes and by the stuff you destroy, it's just that awesome!

You have so many abilities and neat tricks you can do... you can even parkour from the beginning of the game... wallrun buildings and climb them (yep, can do both) and even jump way high and drop down, delivering a huge shockwave.

Another highlight in this game is the Web of Intrigue, there are certain people that contain information about your past, you find them(by a special marker over their heads) and consume them, and there you go! one fresh memory that none can really understand without unlocking the whole sequence of memories retrieved from several people(the memory are seperated into "sequences" that make more sense then each memory on it's own), consuming one's memory will give you a lead about it's related memory in the same sequence(one of things you have to play to understand...).

OK kids... it's story time!
You play as alex mercer, a male... dude... who wakes up in a morgue in the middle of an autopsy, only to find out he remembers nothing of his past, oh and he also got super strength and super-parkour skillz.
So the game is all about recovering his lost memories... but who gives a damn when you're a Mutant BADASS Who can manipulate your body in the molecular level and blow stuff up?... seriously


And c'mon... Great graphics, Web of Intrigue, Free Roam, and a Story?! this is one of the games I can proudly call an Interactive Movie.

Wow, a religious asshole... and one full of shit.
You seem to get it all out, wonder how much you got left in you...

do you even know what fag means?
Fag-
A British colloquialism for cigarette;
A junior boy who acts or acted as servant;

So no we are not slaves nor cigarretes, and the ones who are homosexual are doing it from their own choice and whatever you say won't bother them.
But you sir, are an asshole, no doubt about it.

Back on topic: I have prototype for my ps3, and it is quite enjoyable. Although the camera/targeting can be awkward at times, this is still a great game. I have 22 hours clocked in, and Im on the final main story mission.

You've got Story missions but you don't have to do them, and like Jax said there are fun challenge missions.
Plus you get some points for doing cool stunts and killing people in innovative ways ;)
Also you can destroy stuff that will affect the city itself and tour the city to find some collectibles, there is plenty to do in the "Free Roam" mode.

The game looks pretty good, although I haven't played it yet.

Seams somewhat like "Second Sight" from the review you gave us.

You can't alter your body to super-cool weapons in Second Sight :p or glide, or burst tentacles from your body that hits everything in it's way and looks super-cool.
