"Another free roaming open city? More 'dark themes' gruff voice acting and over the top violence? In a gaming environment teeming with look-alikes and re-treads, it's easy to be skeptical these days. Radical Entertainment's new 360/PS3/PC project Prototype is in many ways an effort to combine all the best parts of other market-leading games into one title. Often such lofty ambitions are undone by poor execution, but with a pedigree for both super-hero and free-roaming game types, the project appears to be coming together. We recently attended an event put on by publisher Vivendi showing off an early build of Prototype, and while it's still some way from release, we were impressed by several aspects of the game."
