Through streamlined controls, nonexistent difficulty, and a bevy of impressive-looking attacks, Prototype 2 transports you to lớn a consequence-không tính phí world in which you can happily cleave soldiers and smash helicopters to lớn your heart"s content. This relentless accessibility is Prototype 2"s biggest strength và weakness. With nary a moment of genuine challenge to lớn be found, you sprint from one entertaining sự kiện to lớn another, laughing at the delightful absurdity of it all. But without any barriers khổng lồ overcome, there"s little sense of accomplishment. Prototype 2 isn"t the slightest bit novel, but it"s so utterly ridiculous that it"s hard to wipe that mischievous smile from your face.

There"s a sadistic joy to brutally murdering your enemies in Prototype 2. You"re blessed with such a powerful repertoire that you can cause excruciating pain with ease. Although much of the excitement exists because of this savagery, your enemies are such pushovers that you rarely feel the satisfaction of a hard-fought victory. In many ways, Prototype 2 encompasses the kiến thiết philosophy normally associated with quick-time events (even though that control method doesn"t often surface). In other games, frequent QTEs make you feel lượt thích a badass without much work, and that sense of unlimited power is Prototype 2 in a nutshell. Your overpowered enemies keel over after barely even scratching your durable skin, so you tear them to lớn shreds without any fear of dying. Even when you start a New Game+ on the unlockable Insane difficulty, you progress through missions without any serious opposition.

Your biggest challenge comes from overcoming twitchy controls and a camera that falters under certain circumstances. Killing dozens of enemies is no problem in Prototype 2, but when you want to hurt just one attacker, things become a bit more complicated. You move sầu so quickly that homing in on just one man is a crapshoot, and this means you might piông chồng up a box or stray rocket launcher when you desperately need lớn grab on khổng lồ a specific person instead.

In tight spaces, the camera doesn"t know how to lớn properly showcase the actions. Characters become obscured behind obstacles because your view zooms in too tight, making it tricky lớn get your bearings. Neither of these issues is detrimental because even with hiccups you rarely confront death, but they vày get in the way of the freewheeling action during the most intense moments.

A tank is a poor way lớn attaông xã a supernhân vật.

Outside of missions, there are oodles of collectibles lớn nab. The bản đồ sends out a radar pulse in the approximate location of hidden blachồng boxes & secret lairs, so you don"t have sầu lớn explore much khổng lồ uncover them. But it"s fun khổng lồ traverse the city locating every spare part, và the upgrades you receive sầu for doing so are worth your while. The pacing is handled well in Prototype 2. You learn new abilities every few hours, so you always have sầu something new to play around with, and bumping your stats makes you stronger and faster as you get deeper into lớn the journey. It"s a shame the challenge doesn"t scale with your newfound powers, but that doesn"t detract from the excitement of learning new ways khổng lồ tear your enemies khổng lồ pieces.

Prototype 2 is a safe sequel. It doesn"t add anything particularly new or inventive sầu to lớn the genre, but small tweaks make it more accessible than the original game. Most importantly, it"s an unabashedly fun adventure that doesn"t have any doubt about what it wants lớn be. This is a game about killing enemies in an open-world environment, và little stands in the way khổng lồ hinder your enjoyment. Mindless violence is is all the rage in Prototype 2, which makes for a stupid yet entertaining experience.
