Prototype 2, the sequel to Radical Entertainment's 2009 action adventure title, is out this week in Australia on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The game will introduce a new character, Sergeant James Heller, who must fight to avenge the death of his family. (As you've undoubtedly guessed by now, there's a new bio threat in town: a different type of biological beast that has grown organically.) Like the first game, Prototype 2 takes place in a modern New York City called New York Zero, with the war zone split into three distinct divisions: Red Zone, the infected bio jungle; Yellow Zone, playing host to survivors; and Green Zone, under heavy military control.

Weaponisation plays a bigger role in Prototype 2, with Heller sporting the ability to disable and disarm vehicles.

For those among us looking for something a little more bloody, Bloodforge on Xbox Live Arcade also lands this week. This dark action combat game is set in an ancient Celtic world and follows a warrior by the name of Crom, who goes back to fighting the gods after they do something bad to his family (are you noticing a pattern here?).

Other games worthy of a mention this week include Bejeweled 3 on the DS and Top Gun: Hard Lock on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
