    On PC, Prototype 2 hums along nicely in the presentation department, but playing a game a game like this with a keyboard and mouse is ridiculous. It's not as accurate as playing with a controller, which this reviewer switched to after about 20 minutes fidgeting with the keyboard and mouse and finding them completely impractical at best and frustrating at worst.

    Like a lot of action games, the story needs a bit of work, but if you can overcome it's minor short comings, this game can be a whole lot of fun.

    Prototype 2 is not perfect and there are a few things which need to do a better job next game - like the lack of variation in missions - , but nonetheless this is one of the most visceral, spectacular and brutal sandboxes out there. A far better videogame than its predecessor.

    A solid conversion of a solid game, but the three months delay can't be justified in any way. A really poor treatment for the PC gamer.

    Prototype 2 on the PC is almost identical to its console counterparts, which makes for a brutal and exciting adventure.

    By blindly copying the first game, Radical killed most of its original ideas and made a lot of mistakes. Prototype 2 is a derivative tale of a stupid superhuman who walks in a city made of shoeboxes.

    Tons of fun and action-packed carnage, made all the better by NG+ playthroughs on higher difficulties once all abilities are unlocked. It'sTons of fun and action-packed carnage, made all the better by NG+ playthroughs on higher difficulties once all abilities are unlocked. It's never particularly challenging but the spectacle and scale of brutality is never a disappointment. It's such a pity the company was closed down and we won't see another instalment. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Good optimization on the PC. The plot has become more interesting than in the first Prototype, but if you have not delved into the plot of the previous game, you may get confused, but the game tries to explain everything to you as you progress. Something bad can not be said about the fighting, as it was emphasized in both parts, a pleasant innovation in the form of a combination of weapons with which you can turn beautiful and fast combos. We still have claws, a blade, hands hammers and a whip, just as our main character has acquired new weapons and capabilities. They are a bio bomb and tentacles, but we were deprived of the opportunity to build armor and muscles, they also took two types of vision, the infected person’s vision and infrared vision, but they weren’t used by anyone, but in exchange they made it possible to call for help not a large flock of infected screamers. The characters have become more interesting and memorable.
    There are more enemies than in the first part, namely, we got juggernauts and goliaths, and the developed ones who sometimes act as Mercer's minions and are like mini bosses. The graphics became more beautiful and the city felt more vibrant. What can I say about technology, now we have the ability to quickly finish off and the ability to tear rockets from a helicopter or a machine gun from a tank. For me personally, the minus in the game is that we are now playing not for Alex Mercer but for James Heller. We can play for Mercer, but only have a skin no more. For me, this is a big minus of prototype 2, because with the charismatic and cold creator of the virus we were given the chance to play as a sergeant’s boring and obsessed revenge. I advise you to buy the game in Steam for the full amount along with the DLS, since you definitely will not want to spend money.

    Cons of Prototype 2

    -Prototype 2's mission focused on sneaking to consume some your target sneaky,Prototype 1 focused using the special ability on most of mission
    -Heller run slower than Alex
    -Alex's power is better than Heller's power
    -Shield too OP,it is possible to complete a mission by deflecting bullet and rockets
    -After you complete everything,Prototype 2 is getting very boring
    -Why do they make Alex became very evil person?

    Although I enjoy leaping around the city with my near-invincible superpowers, I can only give Prototype 2 a 6 because of the totally crap AI.Although I enjoy leaping around the city with my near-invincible superpowers, I can only give Prototype 2 a 6 because of the totally crap AI. I can toss a car into a bunch of soldiers, destroy a tank, then run around a corner, disguise myself, and come back in less than 10 seconds, and the stupid brainless AI soldiers have forgotten it happened. Even with the fires still blazing. But other than that...it's a lot of fun. Expand

    Same as the first game, HORRIBLE PC port. Playing with mouse and keyboard is really hard and tiring. But not only the controls, the fps jumpsSame as the first game, HORRIBLE PC port. Playing with mouse and keyboard is really hard and tiring. But not only the controls, the fps jumps around from 20 fps back up to it's original place A LOT, and crashes do happen from time to time. Get yourself a controller to play with and the controls will be just fine though.

    Apart from the negatives, this game is very entertaining. If I would rate it on the console I'd give it a solid 7 for it's (not so well written but) interesting story, mind-blowing non-stop slaughter action and it's very efficient way of letting you roam the streets and rooftops of New York . I'd say this is the evil version of Spider Man.
