Fuck this game

Ok ive played this alot and went really far in the missions and so far i LOVED all the action i mean really this game blows you away with all the blood and destruction and combat and chases.. just a big pack of explosive fun either with the wild freeroaming or the very entertaining and challenging missions/side missions..

BUT, now towards the end the missions are pretty fucking impossible to do.. i mean its not even the smart kind of hard or the kind that requires attention or skill but just WE WANNA MAKE YOU SICK hard.. anybody noticed that? im not sure whether im about to beat it or not, maybe im still in the middle (the mission i just tried to finish was when you iscort the square blood-something vehicle and have to defend it from the infected things that come out of the ground)

they just make you and the things you need to protect pretty vulnurable, make the enemy pretty strong, the environment and the people around you fucking with you arent really helping... its sole purpose is to piss you off and make you feel like shit

the GTA franchise has a pretty similar mission system, still, no matter how fucked up the situation is and how short the time is and how strong the enemy is, with GTA you can ALWAYS feel that there's hope and give it a few tries and succeed.. hell, even when its the worst it could ever get i would STILL be feeling awesome and excited because GTA knows how to keep it spicey, but these losers (prototype) copied GTA's mission style and left out the part where the missions should feel a bit alive and do-able

FUCK, THAT. im done playing this game. military everywhere and you cant make a move without having tanks and helis bombing your ass which drains your health so quick like theres no tomorrow, where the fuck is the fun in that?i bought tons of health upgrades and they dont do SHIT..

  i dont mind HARD circumstances or hard missions, i love the challenge and i usually pick the Hard difficulty to go, but not this way, this is sickening and unbearable! makes me wanna punch the goddamn monitor.


Edit: excuse my language..

Sounds horrible, i hate it when games just spews more enemies at you instead of coming up with something clever, to me thats just shitty game design. But i´m that kind of moron who just keeps pushing my self to finish it, no matter how pissed off it makes me.

Which is stupid, cause there is no reason to punish your self, by beating a game thats just god awful crap. And what may have started out as a good game, will end by you loathing it and talking shit about it, cause your mind is clouded by hate.

normal i think.
but really this isnt about the difficulty this is about the hard unbearable nature of the missions
Posted by RipTheVeins

Yup. That's the exact reason why I wish that I would've not wasted my money on this and get Blazblue, a game that I know I would've enjoyed, but instead I got Prototype a few weeks ago since I though open world= more value.  Too bad all of the great open world stuff and just messing around is all ruined later in the game when military and infected are everywhere making things nearly impossible to just mess around and have fun.  Also, much like the OP, I rather enjoyed Prototype at first, but it's desperate attempts at difficulty just ruin it, and the fact that when you do beat those missions you just feel like you cheated the system rather than used skill.

 After beating Ninja Gaiden Black and Ninja Gaiden II I vowed that I wouldn't play a game that pisses me off to no end since that completely ruins the whole purpose of why I play games, since I just want to have fun with them, which doesn't mean that it shouldn't be challenging at all, but it certaintly shouldn't make me want to slit my wrists out of frustration either.

For it came down to either getting inFAMOUS or Prototype, I got the former. It seems I made the right choice.

I always went in guns blazing for both games.

If I could give a tip that helped me out tons, I'd say that rolling on the ground is terrible. It never works, and it slows you down. Try short hopping and dodging to get places fast, and only use gliding when you are traveling or fighting heli's.
Posted by OwnlyUzinWonHan

All you really have to do is constantly shoot the machine guns, shoot the cannon when possible, and use lock-on targeting for everything in that game.

But wheres the fun in "planning"?
Posted by Shadow

having beaten it on the hardest difficulty without dying, I'd just say you suck

Posted by Jeffsekai
@The_Drizzle  : Part of the fun is figuring out how im going to attack the African military base or the infected leader thing...if you don't like that stuff then you wont like these games, its that simple.
Posted by HandsomeDead

I agree with OP. The later sections of the game are just so messy and cluttered that it gets so tedious just getting from A to B.

Edited by Equal_Opportunity_Destroyer497

I definitely see your point and I was probably at the level of anger/frustration that you are. But I persevered and finally finished it over the holiday weekend but at what a price. I haven't taken my anger out on a controller in a long time but that last boss is such a dick.


Edited by JustinNotJason

I agree, the games beginning was shit easy but later it got hard out of no where. That last boss fight really pissed me off as well. For some reason everytime I tried to pull off a devastator it would just read it as me charging 'B'.

Also the lock on was fucking retarded. I'm fighting that last boss and hit lock on and it'll lock on to like a soldier running around. I'm carrying a helicopter to throw, I don't want to hit a stupid foot soldier I want to hit the big fucking thing following me around.

Other than the few times I got really frustrated, the game was decent. I'd give it 3/5.
I'll say this, this game is a good game to base future superhero games off of. Like if they ever had the urge to make another spiderman game, they should really take alot of the mechanics from this game. The jumping (which seems to be wrongfully negated in most Spiderman games) is spot on in this game.

That being said, I knew I'd get bored of this game really fast, so I'm glad I rented it :D

well thats the thing, you can never know whether you do suck and the whole world is beating the game easy, or that the unbearable difficulty and stiffness of the game is actually there.. apparently from people's posts i wasnt very wrong, no sir you suck :P

Im glad im a PC gamer :P
Edited by Shadow

I don't see how you giving up halfway through the game makes me suck.  As for any proof I actually did that, just look at my achievements.  The time and date for having beaten it on the hardest difficulty and having beaten it without dying are the exact same.  I can understand not wanting to do what I did, but giving up halfway through a game where the hardest mission is the third or fourth one (you passed it already) is indeed, pretty damn sucky.  That's not even the reason I think you suck though.  If you're not great at a game and aren't having fun with it, you have every right to quit.  However, making a blog condemning it and labeling it an impossible mess that no one can ever finish is a different story.

Its not hard its just getting old school difficult, like ninja gaiden did :p
I've been playing it since I got it yesterday and I'd like to think I'm near the end

*semi spoiler*
just killed blob in timesquare, easy so far.

Edited by zityz

It's not challanging hard, its fustrating in "how  the fuck is that possible?" kind of way. I mean in the beginning of the game your awesome and pretty much unstopable. By the time your back to those 18 days you don't do nearly as much damage. I found the bosses not that bad, just had to figure out a plan. The missions though are some of the worst thought out designs within the past 10 years.

As far as oldschool hard is concered half of those games were hard because of the limitaions they had. There are certain things in this game that were put in place to fuck with you. What's the point of having health upgrades when you still start off at the minimum health, and your health doesnt regenerate all the way ( non crit mass)  What's the point of being super speedy when half the time the camera goes into convulsions? What's the point of having powers but you need to use military weapons half the time?
I mean doing the Challanges and running around doing the achievements/trophies is fun for sure. It's just the missions or rather the mission structure thats poorly layed out.

Also I found that the super soilders are way easyer to get away from  then it was normal soilders with rocket launchers. Hell, it is easyer to evade and take out helicopters then rocket soilders.

The games not horrible, but its not properly thought out either.

OP that part was easy, get the blade upgrades.

Last boss was easy too, devastator attack near it gurantees stunning it nearly everytime.

That's nothing! You should have seen what Brad did to his controller while playing this game!
Posted by YetiAntics

I had trouble on bosses, but as for the tank mission, its all about strategy most of the time.
but yeah, the game is weak and its only worth a rental.

get inFamous instead.
and if you don't have a PS3 then... i dunno lol.

Posted by Snuffy

I have to agree with you.  Having not played a lot of open world games, I don't have as much experience with this kinda stuff.  The game gets really frustrating later on and I normally stop playing for a couple of days it turns me away so much.

Yea that last boss man... Probably the most annoying boss fight I've ever had, so fucking annoying...I didn't die once, but the amount of times I had to retreat and replenish my health by consuming anything in my wake was annoying...and all those leader hunter things, how i hate them lol...
I'm so glad I chose the easy difficulty on that game lol
Edit: Actually I meant the second last boss, that big massive red thing, that one was the one that really pissed me off

2 sittings did it for me
Posted by Stunt

DUDE, I totally know what you mean!

I'm at the mission right now where you have to protect that truck that's shooting blood gas, or whatever the hell it is (I'm not following the story to tell the truth, I borrowed the game from a friend and just want to beat it for the action), and those freaking big ass hunters keep spawning and spawning and I can keep Alex on high health but they always freakin' destroy that truck I'm supposed to be protecting.

Damn Radical.

I never figured out how to do the devastator. Actually, I never tried. But, I beat the boss on my 3rd try once I was able to not fall off and realize I should throw the helicopter, etc lol.

It does get a bit unfair towards the end. And....really fuckin annoying. Best tip to stay alive? Just keep running. Run away, consume, come back, run away, consume, come back, rinse and repeat.

@Ahmad_Metallic:  Dude you wont have any military on you if your disguised as them... disguise yourself, take a tank and blow the infected up ( referring to that particular mission where you have to protect another tank ) easy as pie.
