You’d think two games packed into one bundle would hold your attention for quite some time, but the Prototype Biohazard Bundle will find a way to burn you out before you even transition to the second game.
Lazy PS4 port, but still a fave series from back in the day. The Prototype characters powers kind of make Venom look tame ha ha. Some really messed up dark abilities to play around with. These games are full of crazy destruction with a whole city as a playground. Trying to avoid collateral civilian damage is impossible in this game. So just have fun with being a anti-hero of sorts.
The Biohazard Bundle is now free from the painful glitches and frame rate drops that were numerous when it first released. It is an amazing game. The powers I get make me feel like a super powered legend and also an infected virus. The powers are beautifully destructive and killer. The ability to consume people and pretend to be them is also a fun mechanic. The bundle allows you to experience both Prototype games with all DLC included. The frame rate is not all the time solid but for most of the time it runs perfectly even when a lot of events are going around at the same time. The story is very dark and gritty but does not take away from the overall presentation and chaos you can wreak in the games medium sized open world. While the map itself is not very big it does have distinct features. You can actually pick up and use weapons like guns and also drive military vehicles. The combat is pretty enjoyable sometimes it comes down to a good strategy other times you can tear up your enemies forces without losing half your health bar. The ability to run up buildings, pick up people and throw them far distances or any of the deadly bioweapons and powers the Prototype has in his arsenal is sure a blast to experiment with. The game is an action packed game mixed with horror and science. You will be fighting everything from the military to zombies to other mutants in this extremely violent open world. I don't mind the violence but younger players should stay away limb dismemberment, blood and gore are all to common sites in the world of Prototype the story is strange and sometimes predictable but the characters themselves do have some sort of personality even if it is only vaguely implied. The voice actors did an excellent job and the soundtrack is alright but could be better. A feature to see every ped you killed or every vehicle you stole in the statistics menu is also an awesome touch. Overall Prototype will be enjoyed by people who can handle and find creativity in the amount of insane violence that happens in the game and also people who do not take video games too seriously and just want to have fun and mess around as their are few side missions to complete. Me being a fan of anime like Parasyte and Tokyo Ghoul I found it awesome how some of the characters abilities in this game is similar to the weapons and powers of anime characters. I bought it recently for a good price and the game is a blast to play if you like out-of-this-world power and carnage then this game is for you! I want the game to do better in sales as unfortunately the chances of another Prototype game is dangerously low.
Had the Prototype Biohazard Bundle actually been a full upgrade, it would at least show us how far we’ve come. But given even Prototype 2’s mind-boggling technical limitations, this troubled bundle is more of a reminder that mediocrity is still not obsolete.
Overall, the fact that the Prototype Biohazard Bundle is so poorly named and that it was snuck on to the market without so much as an acknowledgement it was there should be all the warning you need. But allow me to reiterate the obvious; they didn’t bother to graphically update an outdated game nor did they try to clean up the messy controls.
Prototype is one of those games where it is just mindless fun without much need for it, prototype one is fun, that's about as much as you can say about it but the fun gets stale when you load up the second game, they are so alike that it's like playing crackdown 1 and 2 back to back, sure the gameplay is smoother but it is also the same. The prototype games are definitely worth a play if you're a fan of mindless violence and hilariously fun gameplay but don't expect a rich story or interesting characters, Alex Mason is cool but he does this whole "Am I doing the right thing" while I am consuming civilians to keep my health up and Heller is just boring old miserable protagonist with some funny dialogue from time to time.
Over all this is worth a play but give yourself a break before yo play the next one as you'll get Deja vu.
Is it good? Well it's as close to a remaster of those cool games as you're going to get unfortunately.
Has it been worked in or fixed?
Any review that says anything along the lines of "is now free from the painful glitches and frame rate drops that were numerous when it first released." is not truthful at all.
There has not been an update to the game and its still the shoddy version that they slapped together and released.
I suspect they have a community relations manager that just put together that positive review...
Prototype 1 and 2 were good games, they weren't perfect but they were good games.
This so called "remastered" version of the games makes those good games unplayable!
The frame rate is worse than in the original versions dipping down to 15 FPS at times and the graphics are exactly the same how can you mess something up that bad?!
Shame on you Activision at least you didn't market this awful port.
NEVER buy this not even on sale, it took longer for you too read all this then it did for Activision to make this port.
Wow.... just wow... how can you **** up games this bad?
I mean, the original version of prototype 1 was great, 1 remastered..... i turned it off after 20 minuts... worst port i ever played...
prototype 2 normal was good to, but the remastered, thoe not as bad as prototype 1 remastered, was also a mess, i could only use 1 hour and 30 min on it...
Worst money i ever spend...
