From the removal of irritating difficulty spikes, a revamped control scheme, to a graphical overhaul, the game eliminates many of the woes of the first game exhibiting the type evolutionary improvement displayed by its main character.
A bit long, but a good review.
I'll try to keep it shorter.
Longer is better with most things, right? Damn, hate the part about buying in now to get Radnet access. Was going to wait until it dropped.
What about waiting, Madmad? Longer is ALWAYS better?
The game is good, but not a first week buy if you asked me
I wish this had a demo.
I really wanna play this game. Good review :)
Never finished the first one. I just got more frustrating than fun.
I didn't either... I just had too many games at the time. Anyway, I just started over from the beginning last night to play through it and catch up so I can pick up [PROTOTYPE] 2 on the cheap for Black Friday or something. The game does get frustrating at times.
Yep, I'm glad they took care of that for the sequel. Hoping I get this for $20, which I played for Prototype.
Any sales of this? I wouldn't mind grabbing it this week.
Epic game. I can't put it down. I've probably put in about 30 hours into it so far. So many improvements over the first. Far superior to infamous 2.
Not trolling, but why do you think it's better that Infamous 2? I haven't played it but I heard it was really good.
You may not be trolling, but he sure is. Don't worry about a reasonable response from Gigawatt25.
It is good and a big improvement from the first, but in my eyes infamous 2 is still better, better graphics, better gameplay, better story, better motion capture, the list could go on
Better gameplay is debatable, if you've ever played a third person shooter, Infamous is no stranger, except lightning for bullets and grenades, and the melee weapon was a bit uninspired. I guess when it comes down to Infamous, it's a TPS at heart when Prototype is a melee hack and slash. Gameplay wise since I've played enough TPS's to choke a horse. The environments of Prototype 2 is also better than Infamous 2, there's actual life in the city. AI actually talk to you and to each other, even involving them self in actions, as well as reactions, the animations in Prototype 2 is a lot better, than the choppy animation of Infamous 2's AI. Prototype 2 wins in my book, it was just a better fun game that has evolved better than it's rival. Hopefully Sucker Punch can improve on Infamous 3 with what I've seen Radical improve with Prototype 2.
I love this series. In my book Prototype rocks!! I hope they make Prototype 3!!!!
