Welcome to New York Zero
The sequel to Radical Entertainment’s best-selling open-world action game of 2009, Prototype 2 takes the unsurpassed carnage of the original Prototype and continues the experience of becoming the ultimate shape-shifting weapon.
You are Sgt James Heller, husband to a deceased wife and child, and a soldier left simply to die.
As the game’s all-new infected protagonist, players will experience Sgt James Heller cutting a bloody swathe through the wastelands of post-viral New York Zero. Equipped with unparalleled new shape-shifting powers, players will gradually build a vast genetic arsenal of deadly new biological weapons and abilities as they hunt, kill and consume their way toward the ultimate goal – to kill... Alex Mercer!
The limited Radnet Edition comes with bonus DLC that expands the game even further.
Are you ready to murder your maker?

Anyway, Prototype 2 for the few that have played the first title is basically more of the same with a slightly better sheen in terms of graphics. I was expecting better gameplay, a bit of depth to it that was missing from the first game but what you actually get is more of the noise from the first game. This is gaming for the Michael Bay fan club in terms of a lot of explosions and little in the way of storyline, think of it as a playable version of a Transformers movie without the robots!
I actually wanted to like this game but unfortunately it felt like a bit of a slog even though it is not actually that difficult on the average setting and is not a particularly long game. The game basically in a nutshell is go to point B consume person A beat up infected and that is it, this game is as deep as puddle in the sahara.
I would love to tell you about the side missions but even these are carbon copies of the above formula and after you have done one or two you will gladly skip these, which is what I did as they are just distractions from the end goal of completing the game in as short as time as possible.
What positives are there to this game? The cut scenes have a nice graphical style to them and the game should be quite cheap now as it has been out a while and even after its release the price dropped like a stone. Other than that I guess if you want a game to play where you can just switch off and hit a few buttons mindlessly then I guess this is perfect for you apart from the constant noise on screen which will probably keep you overly stimulated if you can make out what is going on.
Also if you get chance to download the additional game options, I strongly advise you do so!
