"More gameplay per square foot than you've ever seen;" that's the tagline developer Radical Entertainment used to describe Prototype at a recent press event. And from what IGN saw during the demo, that statement may end up being more than just marketing hype.
In Prototype, you play as Alex Mercer, a hooded, mysterious denizen of New York City. So mysterious, in fact, he doesn't even know anything about his origin. As Radical describes him, Alex is a "dark anti-hero." When he awakens in the city, Alex has no idea who, what, or where he is. All he knows is he has some truly freaky powers, and he's pretty much an unstoppable juggernaut.
