Must-Play Entry 2: Prototype

leave a comment »

Entry 1 is Killzone 2 (I forgot to include that in my previous post)

Prototype ( Sierra, 2008 ) is an open-world action game (for you noobs, think GTA and Assassin’s Creed Combined). It’s by Radical Entertainment, famous for games such as Scarface: The World is Yours and The Simpsons: Hit and Run. These titles, however, can’t seem to compare with this upcoming project.

You play as Alex Mercer (related to Ron Mercer? :p), a mysterious, amnesiac shape-shifter finding his way through New York City. He has an unbelievable absolute mastery over his genetic structure and learns that he is not the only one with this remarkable skill. Soon enough, he finds out that there is a secret war brewing within NYC as the government tries to stop a deadly viral infection from spreading further – or will you help the creatures spread the virus by infecting more people? This is the decision said to be made by the gamer in this very open-world game that stresses freedom.

Adaptive Parkour and Combat

What I find intriguing in this game is the Parkour element. You breeze through cars, climb walls, and hopscotch over buildings throughout the city. Combat is violent with lots of explosions, gun fire, melee combat, as you unlock and unleash your full power over your enemies.

The Bad News
The game is forecasted to be released in Q3 this year, however, with no official announcement yet of an official release, there are rumors that the game would have a delayed release to 2009. If it requires that much time to build and develop this game into something even more mysterious, and gameplay-generous, then the wait could be more than worth it. I still have MGS4, GTA4, and Killzone2 to play anyway
