Prototype is a fast paced open world action game. You take control of Alex Mercer, who lacks major brain power, but more than makes up for it with his over the top action style super-powers. During the course of the game, the military is doing what it can to control a virus that's turning the city of Manhattan into creatures similar to Mercer. You spend much of your time caught in the crossfire, sounds unfair? Well as a result, he's an incredibly fun character to play. The story ends up containing an interesting story, different types of missions, and some sweat dripping boss battles that are even more over the top than the star of the game.
