Prototype 2 preview hands on gameplay

As we mentioned in our Prototype 2 PS3 review, the game is pretty good. Although it’s hard to sympathise with Heller, a character capable of minicing thousands of innocents in the pursuit of, um, justice. Here’s a compilation video of gameplay.

You’re reading this for one of two reasons. The first is you loved Radical Entertainment’s Prototype, and want to absorb every fresh piece of information about the sequel. More likely you’re sceptical – understandable, since the franchise has grown mossy in the shadow of Sucker Punch’s inFamous 2. If you fall into the latter camp, let me put Prototype 2 into perspective for you: it may be a sequel, but…

The original Prototype was a victim of its own hype – and the electric hands of a man named Cole MacGrath.

Blank-faced, shaven-headed Caucasian protagonists are everywhere in games these days, so it’s truly refreshing to see Prototype II fronted by Heller, a hero of African-American origin. Even so Radical studio head Ken Rosman told us that this ethnicity was something no other journalist “wants to touch” during an interview in the current issue of Official PlayStation Magazine.

You are going to kill a lot of people. You won’t mean to, it’ll just happen naturally along the way. Amnesiac mutant Alex Mercer’s range of shape-shifting superpowers are mostly based on mimicking knives, and create the effect you might get if you strung piano wire across the road during the London Marathon. He’s able to morph between a range of razor tentacles, blade arms, hammer fists and more, turning a…
