Struggling to care.

I liked the first Prototype. I hope they can make this one even better.

A little intrigued, i found the first Prototype lacking in many areas.

Hopefully this one is different.

Bring it!

Why do they keep calling It Alex Mercer? 

Lookin like a pretty good follow up - I'll be watching it closely.

I'm pretty sure Prototype is the only unsealed console game on my shelf that I have not finished the story of. I should probably fix that.

is this amount of cheese necessary and on purpose?

Posted by wickedsc3

Cool. I really should go back and finish Prototype, I had fun with it.

@SteamPunkJin: Blackwatch probably doesn't know that.

Only thing I remember enjoying about the first game was the live action cinematics. To this day I have no idea what compelled me to go buy that game when I did.

They both had their good points and bad points. I played prototype and immediately played Infamous after it. They're about the same level of quality in my eyes.

It must be nice to be so delusional.

Weak trailer...story wasn't the reason I played Prototype.  I want to see 3 minutes of the new and better looking ways I'll be murdering civilians, military, monsters and anything else that moves in Prototype 2 :D

Yeeeaaa.... no. I've recommended Prototype to pretty much all of my friends who can get their hands on it because it's just so crazy and fun but certain aspects of Prototype really drag the experience down.

- The sidequests are just awful and don't ever really take advantage of your powers.

- The story is all over the place and I mean all over the place. The devs did a unique twist whereby killing certain people would reveal more of the story but they aren't told in order and there are loads to find and there's a decent story if you want to go find it but this is too much work for not much satisfaction for more people.

- The graphics look like a high res Xbox game

- Alex Mercer is just a dick. Even when you make Cole from inFamous evil, he still isn't even as much of a dick as Alex. He's a completely selfish douchebag and makes it hard for the player to connect to him or care why he should succeed.

Yeah Prototype is a fun game no doubt but overall quality is below that of Infamous. Still looking forward to this one.

"Mother." That's not cliched at all. I mean, Alien never used that name.

@EpicReflex: I'm not sure I have enough experience with Infamous to make that call but I'm gonna have to agree. Prototype was so fucking underrated - it isn't even funny. To this day I'm not quite sure if I'm just crazy wrong about the game or other people were just too eager to dismiss it. Either way I'm excied for the follow-up.

Sweeeeet...very excited. Loved the first one. :3

If it was an AI you might have a point, but it isn't, so you don't.

@AssInAss: Alex Mercer is the biggest dick. He released the virus unto the New York public.

@tehsorrow: If the character was an AI, it would cease to be cliche and become plagiarism. 
 
If it was the name of any of the other characters, I don't think I would feel the same. But because it is essentially the same case as in Alien of a mostly innocent character who is used for evil by the villain, that's the first thing I thought of as soon as I heard it. But I could be the only one. :)

Played the first one just few month's back. Game had some neat ideas, but it was pretty mediocre. If this does same leap as AC2 did over the first AC I am sold.

I really liked the traversal in the first Prototype. Just the way you move was incredibly fun. 
I spent hours ascending buildings in full armor then turning the armor off just long enough to glide to another building across the street and turn on the armor again on contact with the facade and all this while tanks and helicopter shoot at you. Damn ... well I guess I'm interested.

Also, I've noticed a couple of you have slipped back into being able to concentrate on your work and somehow managed to control your bowels, which means I have no choice but to terrify you by ratcheting up the alert level a couple of notches to... BLACKWATCH PLAID!!!!

With you guys on this one. Can't wait for Prototype 2.
Posted by mr_woo

I never understood the love for Infamous 1 and 2.  They are by no means awful but I honestly can't say I thought that they were great fun either.  They have terrible characters, terrible stories and the character is far too 'sticky' during traversal.  At least in Prototype traversal felt a lot more smooth and faster.  Also Cole is so weak compared to Mercer in Prototype.  In Prototype I feel like a mother fucking god laying the smack down on fools.  With Cole he never really gets to a supergod status even with his stronger powers, he still feels weak. The sense of power progression is very lacking.
 
I'm not going to have a go at fans of either Infamous or Prototype afterall you like what you like, just that I simply had a lot more fun with Prototype and would consider it a better game.  Really can't wait for Prototype 2.  But hell I think The Saboteur is one of the most underrated open world games in recent years with the funniest main character of them all (with superb dialogue) and I don't know a single person who also thinks that! :D
