CVG Preview: Prototype

CVG writes:

"Admittedly, the city of New York itself has been served up in videogame form on a tri-yearly basis for most of recorded history (and Ghostbusters will soon put the place through armageddon yet again), but as soon as you play that opening Times Square level you'll see what an utter play-ground of destruction Prototype has made it. Once the game proper begins you'll have the run of the place, whether you're stirring up hives of Infected and leading them into the military to kick off impromptu battles or simply attempting to climb the highest skyscraper you can find, giggling inanely with a struggling policeman in your left hand. The city will genuinely react to your presence and your actions; the days that people would ignore you or mutter something like "Hi Spidey" as you pirouetted into the middle of 34th Street in Spider-Man games are long-gone."

Heh, I like the bit where you'd be able to accuse people of being you (Alex) in disguise. Hilarious, I wonder how that works out!

Is it just me, or does this game look repetitive? I mean, the blowing up everything in sight looks cool but there doesn't really seem like much of a story, i.e. rinse and repeat.

I hope this doesn't turn out to be another Assassin's Creed, which had great visuals btw, but story is what drives the narrative (or is it the narrative that drives the story) not the action -- they should ask the heavy rain producer for tips.
