Gameplay (Benelux) (Apr 27, 2012)
Wat lichte humor, een overvloed aan powers en perks en een levendigere omgeving zorgen ervoor dat Prototype 2 het eerste deel moeiteloos in alle opzichten overtreft.
Overall, Prototype 2 delivers an experience which advances the franchise in the right direction. Many of the issues which plagued the first game have been addressed this time around making for a sequel that feels great, is engaging, and is a thrill ride from beginning to end. While the game’s visuals could have used a few more months in the shop and the repetitive nature of the game’s mission and quests do hamper the experience somewhat; at the end of the day Prototype 2 is an enjoyable open world experience that fans of sandbox style games are sure to enjoy and fans of the original game should appreciate.

Overall, Prototype 2 is a decent game. It’s less frustrating than the first, with more options for customization, better abilities and more stuff to do. It’s hampered though by a garbage storyline and a serious lack of Barry Pepper. It’s worth a look if you liked the first game, or if you like super hero games at all.

A relentlessly fun game, Prototype 2 is marred only by a barely decipherable story and a dull, unsympathetic character in Sgt. James Heller. Everything is geared towards showing you a good time though, and if you can switch off your brain, you'll enjoy everything Radical Entertainment's sequel has to offer.

Prototype s'offre une suite relativement sympathique qui saura assurément se faire une place dans le cœur des fans. Toujours plus violent, notamment grâce à l'ajout de nouveaux pouvoirs dévastateurs, ce titre gore à souhait offre ainsi une expérience aussi jouissive qu'accessible. Si le scénario déçoit et que quelques défauts plus ou moins gênants sont de la partie, Prototype 2 n'en reste pas moins une très bonne pioche que nous ne pouvons que vous conseiller.

Prototype 2: Nicht gerade hässlich, aber auch weit von hübsch entfernt. Jede Menge Missionen, die aber größtenteils ähnlich aufgebaut sind, wodurch es ihnen auf Dauer an Abwechslung mangelt. Das Absorbieren von Personen macht Spaß und verleiht dem Spiel einen interessanten taktischen Kniff - bis man dahinter kommt, dass man auf die Pseudo-Schleicherei pfeifen und einfach die Klingenarme zücken kann, das Ergebnis ist das Gleiche und deutlich einfacher. Das Spieldesign: Lediglich eine Verfeinerung der Formel des schwachen Vorgängers. Ein klassisches Wechselbad der Gefühle also. Und dennoch hat es mich unterhalten: Zwar fehlt Hellers Rachemission die Ironie und Over-the-Top-Action der Konkurrenz, aber das wird mit einer gut präsentierten Handlung und simpler, aber sehr flotter Action ausgeglichen.

Prototype 2 c’est un peu une série TV qui a trouvé son public : de bons épisodes, d’autres mauvais, un season finale complètement pourri... mais on s’y accroche quand même parce que ce n’est finalement pas si mauvais que ça. Par contre pour la prochaine saison il faudra probablement prendre un peu de risques si Radical veut garder son public.

Having no impact is kind of the M.O. of Prototype 2. I enjoyed leveling up Heller and completing side quests, but none of it really meant anything to me. Outside of the Achievements I have for my efforts, I doubt I'll remember much of Prototype 2's sterile side missions and curse word-laden dialogue. Prototype 2 is fun, but it sure is forgettable.
