Eh, what's this about a story in Prototype? I just played the game for the video game part. Maybe they will show some of the game before it releases? That would be nice.

A game that should have remained a prototype (couldn't resist).

Story is simple, experiment virus gone wrong.
In Prototype 1 you play as Alex Mercer trying to get to the person who did this to you considering you "were" the only one with powers.

In this one, you play as Heller, a ex-soldier who gets the same powers and is after Alex Mercer because he is the one who killed Heller's wife and daughter.

Anyways, I cant wait to get this game. Just pull off some anger managment steam badassery off LOL
Pure god tier character control in a game IMO, its this one.

I'm surprised how a game's story can completely make me uninterested in a game. I really liked the first game, the story and the protagonist. This...I just don't know. I don't like the story and I don't like the main character.

Well if story fails, atleast look at gameplay for interest.
Story is something that you shouldnt look at first for a game considering its the gameplay that matters.

Leave good story for books or movies, game is all about gameplay, if it comes with good music to set the mood and vibe nice, story for a plus.

For example Ninja Gaiden has the most generic japanese ninja story, dont care why? gameplay is spot on.

I dont get how you could have enjoyed the story in the first, but i agree. I'd take angsty mercer over this guy. I just hope they focus more on less powers, cos they all felt really meh in the first one. Almost to the point that they where conflicting with each other. I realise they like trying to throw in everything into open world games, but prototype really would benefit from the 'less is more' motto,

Will this one have split screen co-op like the first one was supposed to have?

All the powers in Prototype is boring IMO, but then again i hate mutation powers.

Only ones I used was Mecer's agility to speed and acrobatic manuevers and his pure strength. Only mutation power I used was the whip to get a hold on to the helicopters.
Though I loved jumping from helicopters and then doing a huge Thor like dive to the ground, awesome moments to me.

But just like the first game, story is not important to me, and I will continue to use non-mutation powers.
Just give me fast paced hectic locomotion with huge jump leaps and strength in human form and I will love it.

Co-op...doubt it.

My previous Xbox got three red lights on the first part of this game. And for that, I quietly hate the entire series. Anyway, slime, tentacles - not interested. As if hentai anime in the American version.

About the game

    alimokrane @Melmoth: Exactly and that's my point :) I convinced myself to play it even though its first person - for a game to do that for me, it's BIG! (2 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @alimokrane: i used to read Edge reviews in the 90's and early 2000's because their opinions very often lined up with my own. Also, reading reviews is better than "reading" scores. (5 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @alimokrane: for me it's worked well to find a site, or even better, a reviewer you often seem to agree with or have the same taste in games, and you hare some reference point. (7 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Having played other recent horror games, they probably just decided/realized it was a superior camera for the genre. (7 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker happy as hell because boy.....was 6 a mess. Even the good parts really weren't that good at all. Still though I am slightly sad about no third person. (8 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I'm sure if Resi 7 had been exactly like 6 nobody would be happy. It seems Capcom now looked at modern horror games and also brought back some Resi stuff. If I was a fan of this franchise I would be (10 minutes ago)

    asdfg @Sdarts: Agree, nice atmosphere and graphics looks solid. So nice to see a RE that doesn't look like a shitty action B movie. (17 minutes ago)
