SPoNG: "Some niggling issues stop Prototype being the game we all wanted it to be, but it remains an involving action adventure. The gameplay is a little more linear than SPoNG might have hoped and the side missions can quickly become tedious. But the main missions are involved and challenging. Restart points can be a little hash, which quickly forces you to play strategically. The complex controls can be daunting, but once mastered, unveil a huge array of dramatic moves and impressive weapons."
