New York Zero is a post-viral wasteland broken up into three distinct districts. The Green Zone is heavily militarized. The Yellow Zone is an overcrowded refugee camp, nothing more than a quarantined shanty town. The war-ravaged nightmare known as the Red Zone is where the Blacklight virus has completely overrun the once-great city's skyscrapers and population.
You are Sgt. James Heller, a soldier left to die, distraught husband to a deceased wife and father to a dead son. You are infected. There is one thing left to do — hunt down and kill Alex Mercer.

James Heller, and hunt, kill and become anybody who stands in your way to absorb memories and gain new abilities.

quick challenges nice to give one a comparison to other players, normally I do not get to see others abilities as I never play co-op or online for
many reasons. It was fun to develope the different weapon skills of the main character. Wonderful play field layouts also! Only complaint on this game would be: MAKE IT A LONGER game overall!!! Good price, prompt delivery as promised by seller. One of this year's BEST games in my humble opinion for the PC format. Happy whipping!!
If you have anything that vaguely resembles a conscience, this game is SERIOUSLY TROUBLING. In many shooters, some pretext is made for the fact that your character has to commit vast amounts of bloody murder, such as "the bad guys are all evil" or "the bad guys are already dead" or both. In this game you have some of that, but the outdoor areas of the entire game are filled with people who look like desperate and abused refugees. The game situation requires you to commit a huge amount of carnage amongst these helpless bystanders, who occasionally take to flight and run. Even when you are actively trying not to kill them, the lack of fine control that you have over Heller means that many, many of these people will become splotches of gore on a frequent basis. Would it have been so hard to make this a little less morally ambiguous? A good example of this is the tank levels. You have to drive this enormous piece of armor around on heavily populated streets. People barely even notice that heavy machinery is bearing down on them.Read more ›
The Bad: Missions are repetitive, too easy in spots
Prototype 2 is a huge improvement over the first game in every way possible. The first game was clumsy, lifeless, and just got boring after a few hours. Prototype 2 is streamlined and even changed the gameplay style to that of a hunter instead of a destroyer. The game is so much fun that I hope people who didn't like the last game will come back, like I did, and enjoy this game. You play as James Heller who gets turned into an Evolved by Alex Mercer. His goal is to shut down Blackwatch and Gentek who are trying to test a biological weapon on the populace. Alex Mercer is now your enemy and you must revenge the death of your wife and daughter.
The story is actually one of the first things that you notice is improved. The first game had a disjointed irritating way of telling the story; it was random and mashed around. The delivery is still the same in which you get tid-bits here and there by consuming key people in the game, but it all makes sense and is actually quite engaging and entertaining. I always wanted to know what happened next, but even side quests have story tid-bits that you will want to hear. The game is open for a third sequel which I hope comes along. Heller is much more likable character than Mercer and is a little more relatable. Alex is a jerk and is selfish, so he plays a better enemy this time around.
The combat is another major improvement because it focuses more one-on-one combat then killing dozens of enemies everywhere. There's a better lock-on system that allows you to track certain enemies and the auto-target it pretty smart.Read more ›
