Prototype 2 has officially redeemed this franchise. The mechanics feel the way you wished they would have in the first installment, and it’s a rush to abuse your incredible powers any way you see fit. If you’ve stayed away from the first game because of the lackluster word of mouth, don’t hesitate to jump right into the sequel. A slick video catches you up on everything right out of the gate so there’s no excuse to miss this taste of ultimate viral power.
What it may lack in depth, Prototype 2 makes up for in solid open-world action and fun. It’s highly recommended to anyone who feels that open-world games have offered too many constraints and would just like to engage in some havoc. However, the game’s lack of variety and repetitive mission structure may not offer other gamers the experience that they’re looking for, especially when compared to other games in the genre.
