Prototype 2 is all about mindless combat, flying through the air, running up buildings, and cheesy dialogue. Don't expect a deep story, but get ready for a fun ride.

We like

  • Smooth combat
  • Traversing the environment is a blast
  • Stealth consuming missions

We dislike

  • Occasionally funky camera and target system
  • Dull story, dialogue
  • Repetitive missions, bosses
