    Let me start by saying I did not play Prototype 1 so I don't have a frame of reference between the two. That said, I really liked inFamous and thought this would be similar so I picked it up. The Feeling you get fro... Read Full Review

    Mediocre game with too much repetition. The attempted story makes the over the top violence offensive rather than fun.

    My summer of whoring trophies and working my way up the list of easiest platinums has actually taken me across a newer game, Prototype 2. I don't know if I have ever played a game that trivializes violence as much as ... Read Full Review
