After the announcement of Infamous 2, I'm very surprised there wasn't a Prototype 2 announcement.
I have to agree with not seeing a Prototype 2. I want it! I want it! Better story this time though, obviously better graphics but everything else was so damn enjoyable about the game. I hope Radical are working on this and not further raping Crash Bandicoot's soul and legacy, they suit this kind of game a lot more.
I WANTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT IT lol i knew Cajun was gon be in here. i seriously think me and you were the only 2 on this site that was hyped for Prototype. Its the only game i Plat'd and my personal GOTY 09
Prototype was a very enjoyable game...just not worth the $60 I paid for it. The abilities Mercer had were awesome, but the game had many flaws. -Story could have been alot better -Character models and animations were subpar -Most buildings weren't destructible(this is mainly why I think Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction was better) -The city and its pedestrians were bland and unlively -The game got old fast I wouldn't buy a sequel unless all the above things I mentioned get improved upon. Co-op would be nice as well.
Prototype was my pre-Crackdown 2.
Because prototype sucked big time.
i agree. let sleeping bandicoots lie, and give me more mutant mass murdering! its one of the few games you dont get punished for just wailing on people
why would there be a sequel to a mediocre game that's completely forgotten about?
@dizzleK there is alot of mediocre games like wkc..wait there making a sequel?! prototype unlike those games was fun im saying this because in one of your comments you said you like wkc
WKC is mediocre? Yeah... if you're a FPS-lover... O-T The Thing I liked about the Game was the "feel" of Madness-Destruction, other than that, It wasn't that Good Imo
because it was fun?
Prototype was garbage
Perfect? No. Garbage? Not Really. Iron man was garbage. Yaris was garbage
let em hate deep it was trash just like Infamous was trash. (gasp!) Infamous wasnt trash?? then neither was Prototype
lol you go too far with that comparison, Iron-man the Game sucks Bad..
i agree prototype wasnt garbage but was very flawed gameplay and the story was pretty poorly done. @Bubbles how you can even compare prototype to infamous is a joke, infamous beats the hell out of prototype and the second one looks even better. but i hope radical make another prototype it had potential.
gamers this gen are the worst i have ever seen. ya r so caught up in how a game looks that it pleases ya more so than the gameplay itself. As bland as Ptype may have been it offered almost an infinite amount of playability and ways to tackle certain missions. You had a MYRIAD of powers ranging in everything. In infamous all u had was electricity. And when that drain u just go to a power source and charge. Then repeat. Yes infamous was a great game but i partly believe a lot of that was due to its comparison to Prototype. No one and i mean absolutely no one gave Ptype a fair chance and judged it on its fun factor. Reviewers are a joke but u gamers are a laughing stock. PS3 fans are the worst because they come from a generation where visuals werent they best selling point and learn to appreciate and love games based on how FUN they were and not how GOOD they looked. It seems like almost everyone forgot just a few years ago that it was Xbox fans who kept rubbing gfx in our faces, now its the other way around. Hypocrisy doesnt even begin to describe it. Yea Prototype isnt perfect because of its many flaws including its abysmal graphics. But that is a far-cry from its gameplay and if you really wanna compare Ptype's gameplay to InFamous, we can do that. in fact.....allow me: Please, only ppl who owned both games read, as everyone elses opinion is asinine. Power Variety: Prototype, no need to explain Speed factor: Prototype Climbing: Infamous Ways of traversing: Prototype. Infamous just had running, a hovering move, and gliding on wires. Prototype had tanks, running, speed upgrades, a dash, air dash all upgradeable, a helicopter, a arm that can latch on to things, and an armored Alex that can plow through anything. Destruction: Prototype. its biggest selling point. Mission Variety: Infamous, just barely. Ways of tackling missions: Prototype. I can disguise myself, fight my way in. Use a tank. Use a helicopter. Use any one of my multiple powers. Use help from the Infected. Use help from the military. Side Missions: Infamous. though i thoroughly enjoyed Ptype's side missions, Infamous' were more fleshed out. Story: Infamous Sound: Equal Pacing: Equal Replayability: Infamous. It had Karma choices. Nuff said. As you can see i purposely left out gfx simply because that seems to be the only merits in which games nowadays are judge on. Prototype is the exception that proves the rule. As simple looking as MVC2, is still the most played and wanted fighting game ever made. You gfx whores are cheap like real whores, and ya wouldnt know a fun game if it was up ya ass
Personally speaking, and again I reiterate personally -- this is an opinion, so don't bite my head off, please...I thought Prototype was absolutely garbage. Trash. Definitely. As bad as Iron Man, if not worse. I hated it. Terrible mission structures and world design, lame story & characters, mediocre graphics (and that's being generous) coupled with bad animations, poorly implemented controls, abilities, gameplay mechanics, boss fights, success/failure conditions, enemy A.I., need I go on? For me, it's easily one of the worst games I've played this generation. I honestly don't understand what anybody could have liked about it, it was just such an unbearable chore to play. The original Crackdown and the original inFamous, those are shining examples of this genre done right. Prototype shouldn't even be compared to those two excellent games.
Not gonna even bother asking that question myself. I have Infamous 2 to look forward to.
Yeah I don't think the original lived up to what it was promised to be so it's probably where it belongs...not in existence.
Lol, yea im definitly looking forward to Infamous 2. That game looks amazing. Prototype could have been much better, it was fun at points, but got boring fairly quickly.
i platiniumed prototype and it wasnt that good repetitive combat innane side missions led to a fairly meh game only one part really stood out and that was the web of intrigue
what?! Stood out in a bad way. That was the worst thing for me. It has to be the WORST plot telling device EVER. It made the story so disjointed and confusing.
This game was flat out bland all around, It was just a rehash of hulk ultimate destruction which was great back on the ps2.
Prototype was like this game that I wanted to finish as fast as possible just as soon as I started playing it so I can go out and sell it because it was shit heck i didnt even play the whole game my young brother finished it for me
How can Prototype or Crackdown able to compare with InFAMOUS, really? inFAMOUS is AAA status.
plainiumed them both and honestly they were abotu the same to me infamous has a nicer more compact story prototype had the one feature i loved which was web of intrigue watching it all is like watching a conspiricy movie
Prototype is one of the worst games I've played this generation. Doesn't need a sequel
After finishing the game i'm so done with Prototype. What kind of ending was that? the last boss was boring and dumb.
Prototype started out awesome but I ended up getting bored mid way through and didn't bother completing it. Same thing happened to me with the original Assassin's Creed, because of which I haven't bothered with AC2. Not sure I'd be much interested in Prototype 2 unless they could really display it's very much improved.
i never finished AC1 but AC2 is well worth playing. finished it and was awesome.
Around the time of inFamous 2 so they can ride the hype train of 360 owners claiming Prototype 2>inFamous 2 leading to an increase of sales.
That's exactly what i was thinking, its almost like every multiplatform game needs to be compared to Sony exclusives just to hype it up then once it comes out they're average games at most and will be forgotten.
I think Prototype is a very good game, I enjoyed playing it. The only thing letting it down to me was the city graphics, they were a little bland. Looking around at the buildings, they all looked the same. Prototype 2 could be good, if made. I would be interested in seeing where the story went. Just make the environment nicer and more detailed.
I don't know how good it was on 360 but it was a real let down for me on PS3, I got both games, Infamous and Prototype. I don't think they should make a 2nd one, I mean their isn't really a point to and Infamous 2 looks to feel more better then it did when it first came out.
Prototype had great ideas, but awful, awful execution. Story was horrible, targeting system was bad, and the way those Hunters could pull off unblockable combos on you even while you were hitting them with everything short of a devastator was pretty annoying.
Not to mention the health regeneration system sucked...absorbing people. Looks cool, but ultimately becomes really annoying with the way the fights are set up to pummel you in an enclosed area.
air lsash= win against hunter or ping em with wrip arm, but thats not the point infamous has its what happened next angle with its revelation protopye had some very interesting ideas but a sequal would equate to new outbrerak axel finds out axel kills everything
deserved a s squeal...Crackdown on the other hand did not
they were both decent games. Two worlds did not need a sequel, Kane and Lynch did not need a sequel...
Gamers today are so freaking jaded it's amazing. You didn't like it? Fine. But to call it "garbage" and "trash" just screams "LOOK AT ME! GIVE ME ATTENTION!" Prototype was what superhero games are supposed to be like, you actually feel powerful and like a total badass. I'm playing Infamous right now and it's good, better graphics, more polished, etc., but not NEARLY as fun as Prototype was. And I'll take FUN over POLISH any freaking day. That's what games are supposed to be about.
I think it was a step above garbage. I would call it half baked with some good ideas, but overall a sloppy clunker of a game.
If the developers would try better, maybe I would want to play a sequel. However, it was so mediocre there should not be another one.
The first was pure death feast, but it was tons of fun when you are drunk!!! Other than that the game was not that well done at all. Story was just plain stupid and it was a technical nightmare.
If Radical can simply learn from their mistakes, like Ubisoft did on Ass Creed 2, then I think this sequel could be monstrous. make it happen Activision!!!
Prototype was fun and it was ok - i got it used a few months after release for 30 dollars, so the issues it did have were not as glaring or concerning to me. I would not have paid 60 dollars for it. I liked Infamous a little more, but for me, infamous was not great either.
Here is a idea, have it only on 360. PS3 has their own game like it, then why not have it as a 360 only title? Just a idea.
It's still in the planning stages. I can't say how I know, but it's being planned.
