I'm about halfway through it. The gameplay is as fun as it was in the 1st one and there are some improvements (not big ones though). It's nice that some movement powers are available right away such as multiple airdashes & gliding, throwing, run & grabs etc. I like the lair missions too. The game is less challenging than the 1st one. I've only leveled up my health once to keep it a little challenging. Maybe it'll get tougher later on.
I agree with the OP. It's lame that they made Mercer into the enemy. I thought he was a decent hero & Barry Pepper (the sniper in Saving Private Ryan) did a good job, methinks. I find myself caring less about the story in Prototype 2. I feel like I'm aimlessly running around and smashing things. The story in the 1st game wasn't amazing or anything but I think it was better.
My personal thoughts on this topic. I will say that if you play part 1 you notice that there is a team after you to kill you as alex and then when you start playing part 2 I guess I can say that its like you are playing on the other team and then you get infected by alex. The game storyline and game it self is dumbed down I will admit that but in away the two go hand in hand. I did enjoy the game play and missions and I had fun with it but my real disappointment and let down is that it did have some issues in preforming correctly. Memory leaks and such. I must agree on the other two that said the same thing. If you have not played through this game then you cant really say if it sucks or not. Play it and then decide if you want to bash it. Just because you are not alex and just because you are out to kill him does not mean the game sucks. Give it a try first.
So they messed it up. Just as expected.
That is what you get when you turn heroes into villains in the second part of a planned trilogy.:evil:
They swithced to Sgt. James Whiner, and the whole studio came crashing down along with the game. Staff layed off or supporting other games in development. We obviously won't have a Prototype 3. Should have kept Alex as the anti-hero.
Thank you Radical for destroying such an awesome game with such a high potential of being one hell of a trilogy. :( :x
