Prototype Making Waves With Many Fans

Apr 27, 2008
Free roaming video games have become quite popular in the past few years due to the go anywhere, do anything feel that they give the game player. These games give the player a sense of freedom that level based games do not. However, most of these games involve merely driving, or shooting.

It is in the realm of characters with superpowers that these games thrive due to the larger than life nature of games like these. A good example of this would be Activision's Spider-Man games, and The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction. Radical Entertainment, the same company that came out with Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, is coming out with a new free roaming game entitled Prototype. Prototype is a mixture of sorts of Grand Theft Auto and Hulk: Ultimate Destruction.

The plot is as follows: Prototype follows the story of Alex Mercer, an amnesia-stricken experiment. As the game opens Alex finds himself on the experimentation table with absolutely no recollection of his past. The confused prototype emerges from an underground lab deep within the heart of New York City, only to discover that there is much more going on in the outside world.

With no knowledge of where he came from or whether he is even human Alex is forced to kill to discover his past and avenge what has been done to him. He soon discovers that he has the ability to consume the power of those whom he kills, taking their memories, skills, and even their appearance.

Above these new found talents Alex is suddenly thrown into a war between himself and two different powers. The Black Watch Special Forces, a horribly mutated virus-infected populace, and the prototype himself all wage war in the streets of New York City.

The game play is set to be built heavily around shape-shifting. But this does not just include mimicking an enemy. Alex is capable of using his environment as a weapon, and he is also capable of extreme acrobatic feats, such as running up the walls of a sky scraper, jumping off of the very top, and landing unharmed.

The shape-shifting abilities Alex possesses also allow him to use the skills of an enemy, and this enables him to do things such as pilot a helicopter, drive a tank, and learn certain hand to hand combat moves. Prototype is set to launch on all major next-gen consoles and will be released some time in the third quarter of 2008.
