My review of prototype, the game gets a 9 outta 10 for me. It really wasint such a bad game to begin with except for the fact that your abilities in the beginning of the game are nothing to be excited about, but as you work through missions you build up your identity and are able to use experience points to buy upgrades. As you start out you are Alex Mercer one man infected by a lethal virus that has become you. Alex is mentally aware of this and uses his sister, Dana's support throughout the game. His whole motive is to find out who brought on this disease and vanquish them for making him like this. In a sense you do play as an enemy character but his story sets his purpose which makes him seem to be a good guy as others in the game begin to get infected and he is in search for the culprit, one man who created the infection. The game has a total of 31 missions not including the side challenges. A select few of the missions are very hard to beat, but can eventually be figured out. Other missions are extremely time consuming and i could probably recommend sitting down for an hour and a half just to pass a single mission at times...The thing about Prototype that will keep you hooked as you play are your upgrades as you gain EP and get more upgrades the game becomes alot more fun and interesting. Air gliding throughout NYC, jacking or destroying tanks and helicopters, and consuming humans to find out your true story as Alex Mercer are all pretty fun. Though the game does remind me of a combination of Spider Man (once you get the air glide ability you'll understand what I mean) and Grand Theft Auto in a sense to the way the game is designed for you to follow a way point on a map. The game is great, it does have free roam at any time and new game+ after you have beaten the whole game on any difficulty. The story is sadly unoriginal though and the gameplay reminds me of alot of other games including InFamous,Infected and Assassin's Creed. Other than that Alex Mercer is a cool character and i recommend this game if you like gliding around NYC and playing out as a destructive badas* dude!
