IGN - Prototype received mixed reactions when it was released in 2009. Some loved the brutal combat, the enormous open world, and the feeling that you were an unstoppable superhuman. Others, though, found it unpolished with uninspired mission design. It was successful enough to warrant a sequel, which will arrive next year. Prototype 2 is set 14 months after the first game, stars a new protagonist, and tackles some of our complaints.
