Prototype, Radical Entertainment’s open-world superhero title from 2009, is now available in digital download format. You can grab it from Xbox Live Arcade now, and it’ll be hitting the PlayStation Store tomorrow.
Damn right! Pit Mercer against the Infamous dude, he'll get whacked! I loved the first prototype, but lets hope you still play as Mercer
I pre ordered Prototype over inFamous, what a mistake that was. The guy from Gamestop convinced me it looked better. Guess I deserve it for taking the little fagles word. What a terrible game. Repetitive as shit too. I sold it within the first couple weeks.
With the way the trailer presented itself. I'm getting the feeling you don't play as Mercer, and you play as another character in the same timeline as the first game.
" Damn right! Pit Mercer against the Infamous dude, he'll get whacked! I loved the first prototype, but lets hope you still play as Mercer " I kind of doubt it. Mercer survived a nuke or at least regenerated from one. That means that cole probably can't just disintegrate him. Meanwhile Cole's got a lot of stand off abilities. That means Mercer probably can't get close to him unless he screw up. It would be a very long frustrating fight. Maybe Alex could dump water on him or something. I dunno. And maybe if Mercer Ate Mcgrath he'd get electrical powers? Or maybe he wouldn't be able to eat him at all due to the electrical discharge interrupting his "break 'em and absorb" process? Maybe evil Cole could suck out Alex's life force WHILE being eaten sorting of putting them at a statemate? I dunno.
So many full games coming MS need to start selling bigger HDD's
...it's been on XBLA for over a week now. :o
Didn't get far into the game. Controls were wanky and just didn't give a dang about anything happening in the story. Furthermore, I was told that I could finish missions how I wanted, but every single one I finished required me to do specific things at specific times. I guess it's good for those people who look for the ability to openly wreak havoc in the game world, not very good for those who are looking for a worthwhile story. You should be able to pick the game up for $20 on the disc, though, so really this is kind of overpriced unless you really prefer digital media over disc-based media.
If you're smart just buy it in the store used, and get it for a low price of $14.99
This is why I don't buy games off XBL, PSN and Steam. They're way too overpriced. Fuck digital downloads. I'd rather have physical copies of my games.
But Steam has CRAZY sales from time to time, Bioshock was 10c the other day. 10 FRIGGING CENTS!!!
Horrible looking game with sub-par gameplay. it was like a mutant version of Crackdown. InFamous was a better game in terms of both quality and playability.
its a shame you're not the alex in prototype 2
Exactly I want to be Alex Mercer and kill the new wannabe
IDK, going after Alex b/c he infected your family is pretty cool.
Complain about it like we did for infamous 2, maybe activision will listen to their fans.
I got it from Gamefly for 5 bucks with my Gamefly dollars.
i hate this game. spent 15 minutes trying to climb a dam building. horrible controls.
Totally. This game is sloppy as hell...and totally repetitive fighting the same stuff over & over & over again. Could of been good, but it is a mess of parts pieced together.
lol, how did you manage to spend 15 min trying to "climb" a building when all Alex does is Run up them ? The controls were sloppy yes, but scaling buildings was not one of the problems.
I love all these blustery "quality" critiques from people who obviously didn't play it and obviously have no idea what the hell they are even talking about. :) What? Did this guy not hold down the right trigger while running for fifteen mintues and then give up? You autostick to ALL walls when running for god's sake! If he can't get up the buildings then he is NOT playing Protoype. Maybe he was playing Crackdown or Just Cause 2 instead?
Not worth $29.99. Should be no more than $14.99 like Tomb Raider Underworld was recently on PSN.
True, I wouldn't pay anymore than $15 for Infamous too.
30$?? Forget about it. I might be swayed for 15$.
This is not available on Xbox live arcade but on xbox live games on demand. Xbox live arcade is a different section lol
prototype it good game but it need to have more missions and create better graphics why there just 2 consle games on psn(infamous and prototype) ??? and why they didn't offer ps2 games to this moment regrdless GOW HD collection ??? isn't ps2 already over now their only sport games FIFA , PES , NBA .etc
There's more than 2 games available on the PSN Store for digital distribution. On top of the two you mentioned, Warhawk and Red Faction Guerrilla come to mind.
and also assassins creed, rainbow six vegas 2, littlebigplanet, burnout paradise...
Are you sure about those first two? *goes to check psn store* They're not there. I think you're looking at PSP games and confusing them for PS3 games.
Protoype mainly needed the missions to be closer together. It sucked having to cross the map to get all the side missions and it sucked losing a timed rooftop race and having to corss the map to do it again. Also, the stealth and shape changing bit didn't work very well. People didn't see me doing stuff right in front of them more often than not. A lot of the boss battles were kind of tedious. Thankfully there weren't that many of them. Chasing rhe general in the tank during the evacuation was the worst as was Elizabeth. Still it was a lot of fun to play though due to all the different ways to blow crap up like highjacked vehicles, using weapons, powers, elbow drops, etc.
Prototype 2 should have better graphics and less repetative gameplay and better story.the first Prototype was awsome but i got bored after completion,the enemys were to easy and the city looked the same EVERYWHERE. it was better than infamous tho i have to be honest
Go play it.
