It's a lot of fun when you're actually playing, but when it comes the story related material, it falls flat. If you enjoy open world sandbox style games, Prototype has a lot going for it, and there's certainly a lot of ground to cover through the entire city, and a lot of random stuff to find and toy around with. In the end, I had fun with Prototype, and while I might feel a bit more partial towards a couple other likeminded games that have recently released, it's certainly worth playing and checking out. The story is bland, but the action is great, and in a game like Prototype that's about all that really matters".
