Summary

Prototype - "They're all dead...Except for me"

The Good

They got mission-based gameplay right. There were no fetch quests and only a few protecting missions in the entire game. That's a major plus in my eyes seeing as there are so many games out there with the problem of too many of those missions.

The Web of Intrigue is a very original take on story telling. I personally like getting as much story out of a game as I can, so I went for every WoI icon I saw. The addition of the web gave players the option to delve deeper into the story or to just go through the main story and leave it at that.

The Parkour mechanics are amazing. There's a true feeling of freedom when you are able to move from one block to the next in what is sometimes a free flowling movement.

The Bad

There really isn't much not to like about the game.

The Bottom Line

Prototype succeeds where many other games have failed. It successfully creates the feeling of having super powers. Whether you play games for the story or the action or both, Prototype is for you.
