2 out of 5 eggsWOW! Not impressed

Pros: Lots of gore. Cool disguises/morphs/transformations. Cool how you can drive tanks and helicopters by either stealing them or taking them away.

Cons: Not all what it seems to be. I bought this game thinking it was going to be game of the year...but I see why it can't. Too dark, not enough weapons, too many button combos to remember. I thought you were super-human. It's just a guy with a lot of cool tricks and transformations. Story line not as good as I thought it should have been. This game should have been developed by Rock Star.

Other Thoughts: I bought inFamous before this game thinking that Prototype would be just as fun and great. If you have a choice to purchase this or inFamous...I would have ONLY purchased inFamous and left this on the shelf. To me (and this is my opinion) I think this game isn't worth the hype. To me it was a waist of money. I gave it a two because it wasn't the game for me. My son won't even play it because he said the same thing. I let him play it and be the judge for himself.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Amazing game honestly it's now one of my number one favorite games to play.
Graphics are great and better when played on HDMI.
Beat the game in about a week and it has a great story line that keeps you addicted. Tons of moves and lots of upgrades.
One of my favorite upgrades it the bullet dive jump off of a tall building and bullet dive into the streets to watch the cars go flying and blow up tanks when you land on them.

Cons: The people inside the cars if you look carefully are very cheap in graphics but it really doesn't matter because you barely pay attention to them i was just curious that's why I looked. Really nothing to worry about. Can't think of any cons that would stop anyone from getting this game.

Other Thoughts: Lots of gore and swearing but i love it so get the game if u like that kind of stuff

5 out of 5 eggsSandbox for adults

Pros: Great sandbox kind of game. Lots of gore, violence, and swearing. Think of this game as Spider-Man + Hulk: Ultimate Destruction + The Thing = Prototype. I love how much you can do in this game, consume people, slice people, jack tanks and helicopters, and even take a walk in the park. Plays just like the usual sandbox games, but a lot of upgrades makes traveling and combat fun. With all the different type of weapons you can morph your arms into and the different "event" games you can play to earn more points. Best part I like about the game, just jacking a helicopter and going to town on hives and military bases. Infiltration is great in this game also (watch out for the sensors!).

Cons: Only NYC, Sandbox games seem to mostly stay in this area. What about Detroit? Atlanta? Orlando? L.A.? Or even the Hawaiian islands? I'd love to see another major city, one with a theme park would be funny and fun.. Man Prototype: Las Vegas would be insane, glad Fallout 3 is going that route. can't wait for that..

Other Thoughts: If you're into action/adventure/sandbox games, this is def one to pick up. This game really dishes out the swearing and the gore. If you've seen The Thing, you're good to go.

5 out of 5 eggsA great open world action game

Pros: The gameplay is very fun, your character has pretty good moves from the start but gains more as you progress which makes the gameplay pretty addicting.

The graphics are great for a open world game with tons of explosion and what not, I have not seen any frame rate drops or anything even though theres like a hundred or more characters on screen.

Sound is good, voice actors get their job done and theres explosion, gun fire everything sounds like they should.

Cons: There are pop ins during the game but its rare that you'll probably won't notice but its still worth noting.

The game can get pretty hard even on the normal setting.

The graphics are great but not anything mind blowing, I mean the city; its low textured when you look at it from even pretty close.

Other Thoughts: newegg has the best deals.
