I had picked up the original Prototype on release day but after beating the game, I traded it in. It is not that I didn't like Prototype, I mean its pretty much Grand Theft Auto with super powers but that also means that I cant help but compare it to the amazing inFAMOUS series. I was excited to pick up the sequel to if it made improvements from the first game and I have to say, it was much better.
When you start a new file in Prototype 2, there is an option in the main menu to watch a quick recap of the original game. I did not remember much of the first game so it was a nice feature.

Prototype 2 brings new enemies to fight and new abilities but not much is different than that. I did enjoy new "Evolved" enemies. Evolved enemies have some of the same abilities as Heller and Mercer which leads to some of the best fights of the game. I enjoyed the new fights but I did not feel as if they were enough to make this feel like a "new game".
Heller feels extremely similar to Mercer but actually has a personality. Heller has a wicked attitude and only cares about avenging his family. He sympathizes with few people and becomes a unique character that you actually care about and want to help.
Though the game is much better than the original, I was pretty disappointed about how little was changed. Then again, if its not broken why fix it. The changes were enough to make it better than the first and I was glad about it.
Anyone else pick up the game yet? Anyone think it was good? I'd love to hear your opinions!
