Prototype 2: Better side missions, expanded gameplay

If gamers had one lasting complaint about Prototype, it's that the gameplay could get pretty repetitive. Side missions were particularly galling, featuring drab time trial exercises that felt like petty wastes of time. While ...

Prototype 2: A more engaging, funnier protagonist

Prototype 2 comes to iOS with Protoslice
by Jim Sterling

Prototype 2 is getting some extra promotion in the form of a free iOS games. Protoslice is a puzzle game in which you have to move Sgt. James Heller's mutant virus blades out of the way of a panic button without getting cut. It doesn't look all that hot, but it's free!

I think you should watch the video above, whether you get the game or not. It's incredibly dynamic.

Radical Entertainment talks Prototype 2 at gamescom

As a guy who lives in a city that used to be divided into two areas by a wall, it intrigues me very much to see how the storyline of Prototype 2 is developping. I had a chat with the studio head of Radical Entertainment abou...

Prototype 2 screens are full of sharp, pointy things

You want screenshots for Prototype 2? No? Tough bollocks, son, you got 'em anyway! There's plenty of death and destruction in these images, as James Heller chews through half a city with his mutant virus arms. Fire, claws, knives, there's basically everything you need to commit your favorite brand of genocide.  I am so stoked for this game.

Prototype 2 gets 'Evolution of Awesome' trailer

With a trailer that's called itself "Evolution of Awesome," I was expecting a bit more from Prototype 2's marketing department. Instead, we get that Valkyries tune with a slow-motion image of James Heller jumping toward a he...

Get in the Game: Become a character in Prototype 2

My mind is always blown at these kinds of promotions. It could be seen as risky to open up the playing field for anyone to become a character in your game. What if they're really scary or strange? Do you want that in your gam...

Prototype 2 has a Father's Day message for you

I promised myself that if the powers that be continued pumping out Prototype 2-themed cards for every single holiday, I'd make sure we posted them all. And, it looks like they're actually following through. F*ck! So here you are, fathers everywhere. Enjoy (?) this ridiculous image.

E3: First impressions of Prototype 2
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Main protagonist of Prototype 2, Sergeant James Heller, was given a second chance at life after being infected by the The Blacklight Virus. He now shares Alex Mercer's powerful abilities but unlike Alex, Heller embraces his powers from the start and uses them to seek revenge against Alex for having a hand in the death of his family.

Heller is also on a mission to save New York City, now rebranded New York Zero due to the biological outbreak that has literally divided the state into three cordoned off sections. The Red Zone contains the worst of the infection while the Yellow Zone sees an overcrowded human population quarantined from everyone. The Green Zone sees the least amount of biological activity, but that doesn't mean it's all good.
