    So is the protagonist supposed to be sympathetic even though butchering random civilians is a core gameplay mechanic?

    Clearly Heller will get the 'Put down civilians and pat them on the head' mechanic from The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction

    Well, my first check from my new job is supposed to come in this week.

    Maybe some of it will go towards this game, because the trailers look awesome.

    Also, I love the lighting, the lighting is great, just make the game all about the lighting.

    (Please like me @Kochikens.)

    ok those trailers are doing their job pretty well (i.e. making me want the game)

    looks like they took a few cues from the Batman games with regard to fighting multiple opponents

  • PaperLuigi44PaperLuigi44 I believe they disproved that on Mythbusters... Registered User regular
    I was thinking the same thing, if they can crib from Batman to tweak the combat I'm all for it.

    The first review is a 9/10 that praises the story and combat.

    Definitely, the boss fights were not the first game's strong suit.

    I'm very curious as to how they handle Mercer.

  • DouglasDangerDouglasDanger Registered User regular
    Heller hates Mercer's guts, but I sort of hope Prototype 3 is Heller and Mercer teaming up against Spider-man

    I play games on ps3 and ps4. My PSN is DouglasDanger.

    Spent a couple of hours with this, game is pretty fun so far.

    Early story spoilers
    Spoiler:

    Cutscene style is nice and I haven't had too much trouble on hard, but it's still early days.

    I had so much fun with the first prototype

    eventually I just looked for ways to make my own fun

    like one time a woman hit me with her car while I was walking across the street

    then she got out to see if I was okay (or yell at me, I forget which)

    so I picked up her car and ran away with it

    yelling HAHAHA IT'S MINE NOW

    then I threw it in the river

    No idea about 2, but Prototype 1 is pretty different.

    You can still cause chaos in a big open city environment but it is way less silly and whimsical than UD where you were making bus surfboards and car fists

    in Prototype you slice old ladies in half and absorb them to fuel your scythearms

    Right, so is Prototype 2 more like Prototype 1 or Hulk:UD?

    As far as Prototype 2 goes... it's very telling that Metacritic has ZERO reviews for it at this point. Usually hyped games get sent out early to the review sites. And now that I think about it, there hasn't really been any previews of it recently, have there? Looks like Activision thinks this is a turkey and is hoping enough suckers buy it before the bad reviews hit, a la Silicon Knights' X-Men.

    I'm enjoying this game so far, but I've made it to the Green Zone and it seems that they've stripped out the large moveset Prototype and UD had for basic light and heavy attacks.

    You map two powers to X and Y instead of switching to a form and that form having its own moveset. Completing challenges earns you tokens to spend on specific categories to provide some form of buff, consuming labelled monsters/soldiers allow you to upgrade your powers/military skills respectively and experience goes towards level ups that allow you to put points into health, regeneration, threat detection, etc.

    So the combat isn't bad, it's just simpler. I've been playing hard out of the gate and I'm still liking the challenge. The tendrils' ability to throw everything except the kitchen sink at your target (including other enemies) is pretty damn great.

  • ButtlordButtlord Fornicus Lord of Bondage and PainRegistered User regular
    yeah this is a really good game

    it's simpler

    but that isn't a bad thing at all

    i've said this a few times now

    but

    i love that the angst from the first game has been replaced by heller just yelling variations on "fuck you" and then beating someone up

    I just want to do more with the cool abilities I have.

    But the first Radnet challenge allowed me to use some ground pound powers I don't have in the story so I will hold my tounge and see what other powers I will unlock. Stealth gameplay is much better with the ability to see who is watching your target/the game preventing you from blowing your cover with a non-stealthy consume. And I like Hunter Mode.

    Upgrading powers seems to be the way to go to make combat more interesting, higher level tendrils were ensnaring things all over the place. I can't wait to upgrade the blade, at level 1 it sounds amazing.

  • ButtlordButtlord Fornicus Lord of Bondage and PainRegistered User regular
    i just got my claws to 4 and they look so radical

    i have claws 4, tendrils...2 or 3, blade 2, and hammerfist at 1 or 2

    i like keeping tendrils as one of my powers so that i can dismember shitlords

    My preferred setup right now is blade on X and tendrils on Y.

    And it's great that once your shield is upgraded even blocking messes enemies up.

  • Local H JayLocal H Jay Registered User regular
    the boss fights in this are actually fun and not a pain like last game

    And there's no shortage of people to snack on.

    Taking the upgrades to boost health restoration from consuming has been the biggest help on hard, enemies can't hurt you if you trigger the consume animation.

  • HobnailHobnail Registered User regular
    So are you still slicing old ladies in half for health or is it ethically masked soldiers only this time?

  • Shazkar ShadowstormShazkar Shadowstorm Registered User regular
    do i buy this or the first one if i didnt play the first

    I refuse to play this game if they removed my ability to consume old ladies and innocent bystanders for fun and profit (health).

    nope

    it's literally the most consistent game

    the whole thing is about him trying to get revenge

    at no point in this does the emotional tone waver from being anything but pure, unadulterated, unchained rage
