Game Revolution writes: Radical Entertainment, developers of The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction and Scarface: The World Is Yours, began its session at the 2008 Game Developers Conference on the open-world design for their new IP, Prototype, by asserting that it was unique. Like The Prestige, they declared. Not like anything else.
Prototype is like Grand Theft Auto 3 smashed into Assassin's Creed in a modern setting - more precisely, New York City. In just the first shot, Alex Mercer - a white-hooded man whose eyes are covered Altaïr-style and who sports a grey padded vast and blue jeans - leaps off a skyscraper into the hustle and bustle of Times Square. He's a badass armed with shape-shifting abilities but without any memories of his past, which only makes him hungrier to find the heart of the conspiracy that created him.
