There’s a lot going on in Prototype. It is foremost a sandbox, GTA style open-world game taking place in New York, where pedestrians, motorists and military populate the environment.
You traverse the city in an almost Assassin’s Creed like manner – climbing buildings, clinging to walls and jumping from rooftop to rooftop. Your character can leap enormous distances and glide through the air in a way that is practically flying.
Your character’s superhuman body can mutate its limbs into various types of weapons and armour, allowing you to battle humans and monsters in a third-person style reminiscent of Bayonetta and Devil May Cry.
Various firearms are available for when melee is impractical. The targeting system is useful for fast moving targets such as helicopters and quick moving enemies. You can also pilot tanks and helicopters to reign death on your enemies.
Prototype’s most prominent feature however is that it is astonishingly unexceptional.
