The climbing up the wall thing was worthless, first of all, unless you were trying to get to the top of a spire or something. There are no ultra-pinpoint moments in Prototype 2 because there are none of the Charge Orbs or whatever. The Cannon (hyper flesh fire or whatever) sort of got replaced with the Colossal Mayhem Pack Thermoboomstick or whatever. A hyper amount of damage, can be used multiple times, just with a larger, nukey range. The Armor Power will be returning for both Heller and Mercer in the Excessive Force DLC pack (only for Mercer if you have Radnet) and should hopefully provide the tanksmashing you've been craving.
I do kinda miss Mercer's fleshy Kamehameha blast thing, but the charged Tendrils make up for it. Majorly though I miss being able to hold down the jump button to charge it; you could keep it charged during a sprint and time your launchs juuust so.
I miss all that too, I also miss being able to call in artillery strikes and using patsies. I feel that they also need to put in a skindex for free roam, where the player can select any skin that they've ever consumed for when they go into disguise.
I agree completely, TC. Trust me, Sebz, the climbing up the wall thing was NOT useless. You don't know how many times I needed a good, high angle on an opponent but couldn't get that because I couldn't attach to a wall. More things I personally miss: The backflips Destroying trees The more complex hand to hand combat The old control scheme Prototype 1 had endless playability for me because I learned how to use these things to play in style. Prototype 2 took away all the fun little things to focus on the more important (but not as fun) aspects of the game.
No clue why they took out the wall slide... maybe they thought it was just too cool to stay, or they thought that since Infamous 1 and 2 didn't have it, this one shouldn't either. It's all about keeping up with the Joneses, the opening sequence should be proof enough of that.
The Armor Power will be returning for both Heller and Mercer in the Excessive Force DLC pack (only for Mercer if you have Radnet) and should hopefully provide the tanksmashing you've been craving.
Wait, you can play as MERCER?! HOW?!
If you have RADNET and complete all of the challenges, then you get the Alex Mercer skin to play with. Of course, you can't really do that until the second week of June because of RADNET events being time released.
