this gameplay makes infamous look like a nintendo ds game
i'm guessing you've never played any of the Hulk games.
hm youre so wrong. InFAMOUS looks alot better.
well, i think it's the other way around! have you ever played inFamous? it looks 10x better than Prototype and the story is also really good for a superhero game. i'll rent Prototype to see if i like it as much as inFamous.
yup its a rental to see if ill buy.
It looks unpolished and from those videos it seems to have some kind of terrible noise in the background.
LMAO - "Sorry for the audio, DJ Hero was being announced at the time of this recording."
i did not find any review of the game on major site and it come out june 9th. Thats weird no?
No demo, well ok, no every game has a demo. However, no reviews? those guys want people do a blind purchase, somenthing is not right here. I hope the game is decent.
That's seriously messed up.
after enjoying infamous' lighting, gameplay and audio/video detailfor 2 weeks now, prototype looks very weak.
The graphical quality is at about the same level of GTA4, maybe slightly better. Gameplay Mechanism is the same as previous titles such as Hulk. Prototype really should be released last year. Release after Infamous really makes Prototype looks bad in comparison especially when Infamous is getting some good marks in the reviews.
There are no official reviews for some reason but the impression from people with hacked 360s seem to be mixed. The game iso was released days ago from people with hacked 360s ans some are saying "it's the best game they ever played" while other are saying "it pretty much sucks" but with no comments on why so they're probably people who havn't played it and are just taking sides. No demo: Sand box games had NEVER had a demo up until the release of the demo for inFamous. No Press Reviews: This one makes me think they're hiding something. The game looks good from what we HAVE seen so I don't see how it could suck unless the games main story can be beatin in under 5 hours or something...
I've played it, and it's bad. Not horrible, but barely decent. The controls are sloppy, the narrative is atrocious and instantly makes you adverse to caring about the plot in the slightest, and the graphics look like PS2 graphics at times (though in all fairness, they look better than GTA4 at other times). It's obvious they had a load of preorders for it and didn't want to lose them so they held off on the demo and made everyone hold off on reviews. No, I can't actually prove that I've played it, but you'll see.. they'll be lucky if this game gets above an 8 anywhere. I'm thinking 7's at best, 4's at worst. But we all know numerical reviews are bullsh!t anyway. If I were grading the game based on the developer's overall objective, I'd give it a C-. Of course I could be completely wrong in my prediction and it could get tons of 8's.. but it's highly unlikely. Though you never know with gaming press today.. especially when you see people getting fired for providing accurate reviews of Kane and Lynch... EDIT: yeah, I was already proven wrong by that comment below with all those PS mags giving it 8's and 9's. Really doesn't deserve that.
that exclusives Pwn multiplats...... and we all know why. edit: thank you misterjeff for the official, "unofficial" review...LOL.
Most of the industry was at E3 last week (and preparing for it the week before) so the review will likely start coming up on Monday.
No prob, 50 cal. Glad to see people believe me, despite the fact that I'd never advise anyone to believe some random commenter on a website lol.
It might simply be because the embargo is tomorrow and everyone was too busy with E3 to break it.
I dont need reviewers to influence me, I like what I like no matter what some jaded reviewer thinks of it. ps: there is one review, http://www.metacritic.com/g...
Your right, the reason no reviews have been seen is becuase there is likely an embargo. That or the PR in charge of getting the games out to reviewers, attended E3 and were too busy to fulfill request at the moment. Nothing is "up", you guys just suspect too much.
My nephew has been playing this game since last Wednesday and he loves it! I have to admit though that I have been playing inFamous and when I tried out Prototype I must say the controls are not as smooth as inFamous, but really the only bad thing is the jumping. The graphics are good and the game is pretty graphic (grabbing pedestrians like they are rag dolls) not to mention it has multiplayer (beats inFanous there) and from what my nephew and a few friends that got it say, they can't stop playing it! When I am done with inFamous I will get to Prototype. ~Peace
Since this is the only anticipated action game on 360/PS3 this month I expect higher than average reviews, inflated scores from 360 fanboys, and relatively high sales numbers. I know I'll be reading a million comparisons about how this is better than or different from or not quite at good as Infamous in every review whether it's from the xbots or pees3s. This game will sell a LOT of copies and will be number 1 on 360 and PS3 for the next two - three weeks. All the reviewers that didn't like Infamous will drool all over Prototype like a virgin teen shy boy at a strip club getting his 9th lap dance. I am kind of afraid of buying this game because I don't see any reviews and the game drops tomorrow, BUT when the reviews do drop I bet it will average at about an 87 score.
The videos in the link make it look pretty crappy. Just an impression but it looks glitchy...
Looks okay. Didn't like seeing him get hit by a storm of bullets and remain standing like nothing was happening. Perhaps a bit nitpicky on my part, but that's something I usually like in a game, reaction to damage being taken. I don't think it looks bad. Cut scenes are really nice to say the least and the story looks very mature in nature. Did like that they were playing this on a PS3, shows some confidence in the game on both platforms.
The Controls are a bit awkward at the best of times, but the gameplay is solid fun. I've played it in an official capacity and I can confirm it's a damn fun game.
But will it last? I have no doubt that this game will be fun...for a good 30 minutes to an hours play. After that though it will get boring if it doesn't have any real depth to it. There are PLENTY of games out there that can offer fun that lasts. That is what I am looking for, something that I can play for a good 50-60 hours(Probably more) and just have a fantastic time with it. Something I was actually amazed at for me was that GTA IV was a game that I didn't overly like, it was good, not great, about an 8-8.5/10 for me. I picked up Saints Row 2 a while after it was released and absolutely loved the game, was fun to play, the side missions were quite fun, etc. but amazingly I have played GTA IV for AT LEAST 120+ hours(Not including multiplayer, which I have played probably an extra 30+ hours on) where as Saints Row 2 I have actually only played for about 12 hours(Haven't played multiplayer in Saints Row 2). It just seems to me that there is nothing that really draws me back to Saints Row 2, I am hoping the game gets trophies just so I get a reason to go back as I really struggle to find one to get me to play the game again. Something that I never found myself really thinking with GTA IV. Another real amazing thing is that the co-op in Saints Row 2 makes it so easy to jump into a game with another player and the way I have been playing and loving co-op games I thought this would keep my times for days on end. I just haven't found a reason to play co-op though, I have plenty of mates who I could play co-op with, just that I don't ever find myself thinking or wanting to do it. This is what I have a feeling Prototype could be like, fun for a limited time. After a while you just get bored of it and can't really find a reason to go back to it other than maybe a 20 minute session to smash some people up. It isn't substantial enough to really hold up in my honest opinion. I really hope that Prototype can offer more, but am starting to highly doubt it.
Meh the video quality sucks. I felt like I was looking through a fogged window.
I was just thinking the same thing. Where are the reviews??? The game is out now and theres nothing. This is one game im truely undecided on. Im really waiting for the reviews so I can think about a purchase once finished with Infamous.
that game comes out tomorrow also. As stated above I'm sure most were busy with E3 among other things. Meh. I gotta save up the money anyways. Ghostbusters is out next week so I may just wait til then.
Dont want to bring metacritic to the table but have you guys noticed they havent putten up the 5/5 review to inFamous from X Play..WtF!
@ Kushan Man I gotta say who the hell u think u are. stop trying act like youve played it.
"No demo: Sand box games had NEVER had a demo up until the release of the demo for inFamous. " You are incorrect. There has been several sandbox games which released demos on the 360 and before their release. Saints Row, Crackdown and Superman for example to name a few.
This game is a questionable purchase to me,and here in the noerht east us we get those Gamestop TV promos for the game and it's so cheesy that it further solitifies my thoughts on this game being mediocre
They have one review up but it's from a site made specifically for the game... HOW THE HELL DOES THAT HAPPEN? How can just ANY site post a review and it be accepted but meta? No wonder no one trust the site, that's one bad judgment call. xboxlj Oh, well then i stand corrected but can you name any multi-platform sand box games that had one? In any case i'll just say that it seems rare and i dont expect them to release one for this game. That game play makes this game look clunky though. I'm sure it can still be fun above that but it doesnt help this games case...
it's just proof you're a fanboy. infamous looks pretty lousy too. not that i think this game looks better. but infamous is nothing special. as for everyone's concern on reviews. haven't you learned your lesson with just about every game released this generation? reviews are garbage. i haven't seen a AAA game get below a 9 and most of them have been crap. not only that, but if a multiplat game or a 360 game gets a good review, all the ps3 fanboys shout that the sites are bought off by microsoft. sorta tired of hearing this hypocritical logic from gamers. if there are no reviews, something is wrong. if the reviews are good, something is wrong. if the reviews are bad something is wrong. just rent the damn thing, try it out, and if you like it, buy it.
I not going to rip on the game or anything, but I really don't have high hopes for the game.
Quite interested in buying it but I could use few reviews before I make my final decision.
I'm pretty sure the reviews of this game are behind because of all gaming press currently covering E3.
Tomorrow there will be floods of reviews for this game. Ill call it now AA confirmed but a very fun AA game.
I hope they polish this game, cuz right now its not looking to good...
PSW mag 9/10 OPM UK 8/10 OPM Australia 8/10 Gamesradar preferred it to Infamous Played it at E3 and it was phenomenal. if you like action games that are violent / over the top you'll love it.
Wow, I can't believe it got that good of reviews.. my prediction in my comment above has already been proven wrong apparently. It's really not a good game.. it's not unplayable, but it's uninteresting. I was so burnt out on mediocrity after the long-winded exposition that I had to stop playing.
"Gamesradar preferred it to Infamous" A gamesradar reviewer preferred prototype's action over infamous' IIRC.. there's a difference. It's like someone saying they prefer God of War's action to Gear of War's action... the games are completely different, so comparing them is totally subjective.
this looks bad very weak graphics ,and i have the feeling like its Hulk with a different look
I think it looks good...better than infamous even. Too many jaggies and pop ins on infamous..
People saying they were too many jaggies in Infamous need to do three things: Back up from the TV you're sitting too close. Program your own game and shut up. Don't talk about Infamous in a Prototype thread and shut the hell up. Jaggies and pop ins don't make a game suck but if you're going to talk about how much you don't like a game in a thread not about that game then you should elaborate a bit more. I broke my third rule but I'm a hypocrite.
Jaggies? What jaggies, there are no notable jaggies in infamous.. Playing on a 54inch plasma so things like that really stand out.. (Fallout 3 PS3). All games have popin, especially open world games. The popin in infamous is far better than GTAIV
This does not look good at all. Especially the camera. Not to mention having a car fly by simply bumping into it. I'll definitely wait for the reviews to roll in. But judging from those gameplay videos Infamous is way better.
The camera's definitely an issue, the same way it is in say Wolverine. Imagine having to control the camera in God of War, trying to do combos and moves with the face buttons while also trying to use the right stick to see what's going on around you. Edit: you know, now that i think about it, the face button controls are the same as god of war. square/x is regular attack, triangle/y is heavy/special attack, circle/b is grab, and x/a is jump. Only you need to move the camera at the same time as all that.
that gameplay video to me looks wholly unimpressive. The physics look last gen, there's alot of clipping, and the buildings look really drab and boring. The camera looks really bad too, and the combat looks choppy. Also, the way the character moves, its like he's not weighted to the ground, more like he glides above it. Overall it looks like whoever is playing is having a tough time trying to control this game. I was considering buying, but the lack of respectable reviews is a worry, I might rent it first. I'd like to see more games like this use Euphoria like physics. The biggest step forward in GTAIV for me was the physics, and even though it was over a year ago, nothing has been able to match that yet. Imagine inFamous/Prototype with GTAIV physics. That would rock.
Despite all the great looks the whole world seemed rather hit and miss. Cars would fly and what not, but a pile of garbage bags was completely immovable. Then you got the characters who repeated the same canned animation when they got taken down. That's probably one of the few things prototype holds over infamous is at least they got some rag-doll physics in there. However, I can't imagine it being in the same league as infamous when it comes too narrative. Infamous was a top notch super hero story. Still tho despite all this neither hold a candle to the world of GTA. Hate on it or not but that world felt alive. And that very satisfying physics engine, which i to hope to see more of.
that's worse then i expected. i thought Prototype would be atleast decent. not as good as Infamous, but atleast rentable. but to be honest, that gameplay looks absolutely horrible and now i dont even feel like renting it. InFamous >>>>>> Prototype. hands down, calling it right now before its even released, going by that footage i think its very safe to assume this. Im sure prototype will sell atleast alright, due to the hype and lack of decent reviews to shoot it down. but its still gonna be a sheitty game and i bet a good portion of those people who preordered it are gonna be very dissapointed. i predict there will be tons of used copys at gamestop within a week after its release.
Damn i was going to get this game until is saw this. It just doesnt look........good.
doesn't matter, I will be buying this game regardless. and, I can't find freaking 3 shards in Infamous :( for my platinum.
Off a pier in east neon. Top of the tallest building on the 3rd island next to where the ray-sphere exploded. Dunno bout the last one... Sorry =[ Google?!
I really like the fact that u can scan the nearby area. makes it a lot less tedious than say the hidden packages in gta lol but damn theres like 350 of them. I was happy when i got another trophy related to them the other day, but reading it realised it was for 50% of blast shards. my expression was :| lol
print out a map of the city, and scan down one block at a time, checking them off as you clear them. it takes a while but there's no way you'll miss any if you do it correctly. except the one that's of on a pillar out in the water in the north eastern rim of the neon, that one doesn't show up on radar.
I scanned every corner of the game and got all of 'em.
but on the level of Infamous??? Yeah F'n Right!!! It looks like some Crackdown-clone with Infamous-type imitations!!!
It's obvious from the vids that the guy playing is literally fumbling with the controls and not using the targeting. I'm sure I could make killzone 2 look rubbish too if I played it without learning to target and use the powers correctly. Don't be fooled - play it for yourself since it was getting huge props on the podcasts [1up etc]
The attacks looks a lot more interesting then those lame lightning ones from inFamous, thats for sure!
I think it looks better than infamous because infamous has too many jaggy edges and pop ins...and prototype has better moves and more realistic city.
to buy it TheMart! You are just a hater because you claim to have a PS3! When real PS3 owners know how good a real game is by playing the demo and then actually going out to bUy it because we KNOW it is f'ing awesome. We will see about Prototype. Got a 50.00 reward gift cert. for best buy, will check it out. If it is wack, I will leave it to the 360 fans to worry about! We have INFAMOUS BEOOOTCH!
your full of it. i bet you never even played infamous or maybe you did and you secretly love it?
Play inFamous then talk. The lightning attacks are amazing from the shock grenades, especially with evil Cole, to the lightning strikes from the sky. The explosions and action that results is certainly impressive not the mention satisfying. The Thunder Drops alone are more impressive than the ground pound in Prototype. Prototype isn't terrible looking but don't say inFamous is "lame" compared to it.
I've played inFAMOUS and it's a great game. Plagued with jaggies, pop-in, stuck objects, inconsistent physics but it's a very fun game and SP did a good job of balancing the controls. Who didn't see this coming anyway? People are going to protect inFAMOUS and downplay this game because it's not a PS3 exclusive. I would say don't knock Prototype until you've played it. Watching some of the game play trailers I am really looking forward to Prototype and it looks to have a lot more action. However, I won't enjoy inFAMOUS any less. These guys messed up imo by not releasing a demo.
can we agree both suck.
wen i'm finished with inFamous i'll check this out but waiting for reviews first. The game could be really fun but the gameplay video's i've seen so far don't look enough to convince me without hearing some reviews/playing a demo (well we can't play a demo)
