Prototype is an open-world action-adventure where the player will crush SWAT helicopters and kill aggressive mutants in a beautiful metropolis called New York City.
In New York City (in the heart of Manhattan) a total bacchanalia begins. A modern plague is spreading through the city - it turns the city's residents into the walking dead who want to eat other people. Alex Mercer is a scientist geneticist who, as a result of experiments in his own laboratory, gains powerful abilities. Imagine the long hours spent in the lab: experimenting on the genome, writing formulas on a piece of paper, computer simulations of gene-code interactions. He tries to understand the mystery of the virus. After the experiments, Alex loses his memory. Alex gets superpowers and flees New York City from the secret service, who believe he is responsible for the viral epidemic.
The player's task is to stay alive during the disaster and the special forces hunt for him. The U.S. Army closes down the city, taking it in a ring to deal with the national disaster. Most people are infected two weeks later. The city is engulfed in hostilities and is likely to be destroyed soon.
The task of the protagonist - to remember the past, to understand the causes of the virus and understand how to save his hometown. In order to remain aware of what it is, it is necessary to eat all those involved in the conspiracy against the peaceful city. The culprits will turn out to be other scientists and the military, pursuing selfish goals. Memories will appear with muddled and confusing cutscenes.
The hero's abilities are phenomenal:
- Runs through walls
- Huge physical strength
- Turns into other creatures
In addition, the player can unlock weapons for combat: a long whip, sharp claws, strong fists, a blade, strong armor, a thick shield, super vision. Isn't that enough? Then I'll tell you that you can shoot machine guns and bazookas, control tanks and helicopters, hurl objects - other people, blocks, vehicles.
The crumbling New York City is gradually sinking into the abyss - graphically it is well shown. If at the beginning of the game everything is calm, then at the end the horror continues: zombies and ordinary residents in the streets look like Brownian motion, the military are shooting everywhere and riding in combat vehicles, corpses are rotting in the nooks and crannies. A veritable apocalypse! Your task is to kill as many enemies as possible and explore the city. The player collects experience to buy new skills. Become stronger, faster and smarter. Improving skills, by the way, perfectly improves the player's motivation - you want to unlock all the available features faster, so side missions are quickly completed. Great move by the developers.
The player clears his way by killing many thousands of ordinary people - the game is super bloody. You have to crush live crowds with tanks, like it's suppressing student demonstrations in China.
Prototype is a crazy action game with trigger scenes. The plot is banal: a virus sweeps the city because of bad people, and the main character has lost his memory. The implementation at that is decent - dystopian graphics and spectacular combat system.
