Review: Prototype 2

Last generation, Psi-Ops: The Mindgate Conspiracy and Second Sight had the ill luck to release at the same time, despite sharing an otherwise unique concept. Games involving psychic powers and telekinesis were few and far between last gener...

Prototype 2 shows the power of revenge (and Johnny Cash)

Prototype 2 is almost upon us, and it needed just one more thing to complete the pre-launch hype -- an "emotional" trailer with suitably melancholy music. It's an old trick, but I still find it effective, so this live-action video featurin...

Activision opens Prototype 2 merchandise store

As much as I loved Prototype, I had no idea it did well enough to get a sequel. I was pleasantly surprised, to say the least. Now, I find out it's a big enough deal to get its own clothing line? Was I asleep when that happened? In any case,...

Prototype 2's Supersoldiers sound delightful

Early Prototype 2 buyers to get 'Radnet Edition' upgrade

Prototype 2 getting 'Hardened Steel' Best Buy bonus

If you pre-order Prototype 2 at Best Buy, you'll be getting your hands on the "Hardened Steel" bonus. From what I can tell, this bonus almost breaks the game by making Heller near-invincible whenever he gets into a military vehicle.  ...

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 speaking with d...

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 about what happened...

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 game? Activision i...
