Images of Prototype

Alex Mercer is truly a Kirby ; he can absorb the powers of its enemies and transform in order to send them back in their teeth. Here is the premise of Prototype for the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Radical Entertainment whisper me that the game takes place in a modified New York city with a big sense of freedom. Will be released in 2008.

looks awful, perhaps a lot goes on at once to justify the quality?

I would be OK with this graphic quality if everything in the game was destructible, that includes all buildings, cars and random objects. Thankfully we won't need to worry about it seeing as how these are early screen shots and most games have a tendency to improve as they are finished.

Bitching about an early build of a game is like telling a chef that his cake looks like shit before he puts it in the oven...kind of pointless.

looks acceptable, no idea the point of this game kinda looks like that "possesion" which never saw the light of day.

And the sandpit gaming kinda bores me though

"Radical claims that there will be 750 "unique combinations" of powers"

"the player can visit most locations and interact with the environment while not engaged in missions"

"A key aspect of Prototype is the 'disguise or destroy' concept"

Those monster designs are so ugly and generic. The graphics don't look too bad technically, but the art pushes it into the 'ugly' category.

I dont know. It seems to be looking on par with GTA4. I see realtime lighting and shadowing, per pixel motion blur, great particle effects and a ton of people on screen at once. The physics also look they will be a treat.

Looks really bad Graphics wise. Like an Xbox 1 or even Ps2 game(maybe that's pushing it)

screw the visuals...I want to see this in gameplay visuals.
Screenshots doesn't make a "next-gen" justice.

It may look like shit on screenshot but in motion it looks much better...hopefully.

The Wii does not have the specs of the 360 or PS3...We all know this and it isn't going to change. Take the games for what they are and you may even enjoy them? Stranger things have happened at sea you know.

This isn't a Wii game, yes, I know it's hard to believe.

Well, that was true in Crackdown. All the early previews made me think the game would suck, but it was tons of fun, and the graphics looked great while playing.

I can certainly agree that this game does not look fantastic but then again i'd love to play a combo of shape-shifter-monster-crackdown ;)

the textures look really bad...

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite It's performance related. Also, people underestimate the point of correct calibration. Having the 3d just off slightly for your eyes can cause bad eye strain, thus leading to nausea. (51 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I think motion sickness can be alleviated in future to the point where it won't be that much of a deal breaker. I noticed playing on Pro is a hell of a lot more comfortable than the standard PS4. (53 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite And that's entirely possible. I can imagine RE8 being that way. Having to physically aim down iron sights to get a headshot on a zom would be immense, but scary as fuck. (54 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite As good as RE7 was in VR, it could have been even better if they had a control scheme for it that allowed for free hand movement interaction. (56 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Capcom have since said they are setting up a team to focus more on VR stuff, which is promising. (56 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i'd love for the game to have a combat system as deep as DMC3 or even GOW. with a traversal system that actually uses some skill to land jumps and move around. (57 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: i did. i didn't like it. traversal become even more tedious having to grapple gun everywhere due to wide streets and combat still had dudes taking turns to kill you. (58 minutes ago)
