Very Great Sequel,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Prototype 2 - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
I've been a fan of the first prototype ever since i've played it. Prototype 2 really steps it up from the first in all aspects. I have been following for a bit of what the developers have said the changes in this sequel and it delivered. The graphics got a big boost, the game definitely seems longer, combat system is even better, new combat skills with a boost to the same ones, and what I probably noticed right off is that the environment seems to be scaled quite well compared to the first. Even though there is a new protagonist there are still quite a few tie-ins from the first game. If you haven't played the first, but are interested in Prototype 2 I recommend playing, although there is a prototype recap on the menu (I haven't messed with yet).
So far from playing it there really hasn't been any cons at all besides a few tad nit-picky things. The story is better than the first overall, but it still kind of feels like the first in terms of a little repetitiveness and kind of goes off trail. I recommend trying to get the Radnet edition to make the game more worthwhile. I was thinking the game had challenges like the first one, but radnet gives you some new challenges each week (for now anyway depending on when you purchase). With completing the challenges you get a few new things in terms of content. I guess it is a little trade off since there is the blacknet side missions you can do.
*Update. The //Blacknet Side missions kind of tie in with the story line missions, but are optional. The game length will depend on how you play also, with the challenges slowly being unlocked on Radnet.
Oh and don't listen to Timetorise, definitely is a troll trying to be funny.
I also wanted to add that everything in Radnet Edition content is free even the 5 system themes you get that are coming up EXCEPT the 2 DLC: Colossal Mayhem Pack and Excessive Force Pack. The Colossal Mayhem (May 8th) will be 4.99$ on PSN and i'm guessing the Excessive Force Pack (May 29th) MIGHT be the same cost as well.
"Received" The First Freebie Thursday and installed the 2 wallpapers and I would consider them "Premium Themes" since there is animation on them, but doesn't change your XMB icons. They are cool nonetheless.
