Prototype (2009) Game Review - Teh90blog

Prototype (2009) Game Review

The prototype is action-adventure open world game made by developer Radical Entertainment published by
Activision in 2009 for
PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. Games it is also released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 14, 2015 at the same time as Biohazard Bundle Prototype.

Just like open world games others, Prototype also presents
free roaming system where you as a player will be freed to travel all over the city.

But it’s unique because the main character is equipped with super powers, so you can act freely, such as blowing up cars, killing NPCs who are walking leisurely, and blowing up helicopters. I even think games it’s like GTA played with
cheats because all along games Our character is equipped with various super powers to destroy the city.

Not only has the main character very over power,
games This turns out to also have a pretty interesting storyline. Well, instead of being curious, let’s just peel it off together
games this prototype.


Prototype Gameplay

Story games The prototype began when a man named
Alex Mercer suddenly woke up when going to undergo the autopsy process. At that time, Alex woke up with his memories gone, but he definitely had to run away from that place.

While Alex was trying to escape, a group of soldiers Blackwatch even shot him, but all the bullets did not injure Alex’s body in the slightest. Alex can even jump a very high fence and then run away from the location.

But unfortunately, Alex was still surrounded so he had to kill one of the soldiers who came in his way. All the memories of those dead soldiers somehow entered Alex’s head and now he finally knows that he has a brother named Mercer Fund.

Alex then looks for Dana’s whereabouts and the two of them finally start an investigation to find out what really happened to Alex’s body and who should be responsible for all this.

Since then, Alex must try to recover his memory while trying to stop a deadly plague that is now starting to infect the entire town.

Game Features

For a games with open world action genre, The prototype can be said to appear quite stunning because games It has various features which include the following:

1. Has various types of power

Prototype Gameplay

As the host of the virus Blacklight, Alex Mercer can modify his own body which he can use against enemies.

There are at least 4 types of power with different characteristics, some are suitable for use in long-range combat, some are suitable for close-range combat, and some are suitable for destroying heavy vehicles such as tanks.

Alex’s various powers can be used as you wish, so the effect is games This is indeed very suitable for players like me who really like to cause chaos.

Of Alex’s four power types, the most satisfying I think it’s Claw’s power because when using this power Alex looks like a Wolverine in series X-Men who attacks all his enemies very quickly and brutally.

Alex is also equipped with armor that can protect him from various enemy attacks. As it goes gamesyou will later find armor that makes Alex look like a bloodthirsty alien.

2. Equipped with various interesting side quests

In addition to the main mission, games It also presents a variety of
side quest which I think is quite interesting to complete.

There are many types side quest contained in
games this, some of which are like quest killing soldiers and infected humans, destroying military bases, even some
quest which requires you to land in the right place from the top of a tall building.

Various quest that variety automatically makes me interested in continuing to play games even though the story is over.

In addition, reward points from completion quest which can be used to upgrade as if to make a variety of things
side quest that appear have an equally large contribution to increase in strength Alex Mercer in completing missions.

3. Disguise mode

Incognito mode is one of the abilities Alex Mercer what I really like about games this prototype. How come? With this power, you can become whoever you meet throughout games take place.

For example, if you want to dress like a doctor, then just absorb the doctor’s life and you can automatically change your appearance as a doctor.

Interestingly, this ability can be used on all characters that appear in folder so that it makes your character seem to have a lot of outfits to use.


Prototype Gameplay

Talking about graphics, Prototype can be said to be
open world action game which was very successful considering its release year was 2009. The graphics featured in games this is already very good, the atmosphere of a densely populated city is also displayed quite realistically so that when playing it the city looks always crowded, not like being in a dead city.

The character movements are also not stiff, yes, although in some movements the impression is still strange, but for the size games like this Prototype has packaged it well.

Internal control system games I think this is enough too
maybe the difficult thing is only in the helicopter control section, because it is very difficult when you have to adjust the height while trying to aim at the enemy who is constantly moving, the situation is similar to the helicopter control in GTA SA games which is hard to forgive.
