The final Hexen game on my Steam list, a terrible conclusion to a poor series. I also briefly cover the series’ previous games and how they aren’t as fun as some nostalgia blinded fans claim.

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.

Painkiller’s story is absolute nonsense. Event’s unfold via cut scenes played between chapters and have the barest relation imaginable to the actual game play. After a level or two into the game though it becomes apparent that the developer’s care even less about the story than the audience. They know very well that the story is just an excuse to throw wave after wave of enemies into the path of your very strange and hilarious weaponry.
