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

  • Melmoth
    Melmoth EA announced today that a Battlefront II story trailer for the single player campaign trailer is coming tomorrow.. nice timing (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX And while there may be a nugget of truth in there, people are DEFINITELY jumping to conclusions. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Melmoth: Yea.. but what's not as obvious to people is that their PR wasn't for the benefit of consumers. It was spinning this for their shareholders. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: that's a pretty obvious thing he says. If visceral were doing great progress at a single player game, EA would probably just ask them to change the direction, not fire them. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And as usual.. our analysis is dreadfully misinformed anyway (taking this back to Visceral): [url] (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm not as pessimistic about where things are headed. I think a lot of stuff is better in regards to this problem vs. a decade ago. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MrWhite: Time for what? People are noticing stuff that impacts game design more than ever. That's not a new problem. Add-on content of any flavor has presented this problem through decades now. (4 Hours ago)
