New York, Manhattan Peninsula (very detailed), our days. The townspeople are struck by a mutation that turns people into bloodthirsty monsters.

The protagonist of the game is a seemingly unremarkable young man named Alex Mercer. At the beginning of the game, we know little about him, but it's still more than he knows about himself - Alex does not remember anything, does not even know that he has super abilities.

Abilities are very useful to him, because he will have to stop the epidemic and at the same time hide from the army, police and mercenaries.


Alex comes to the senses in Ghentec's morgue, located in its Manhattan headquarters. Apparently, the reason for his awakening was the noise produced by mercenaries of the organization Blackwatch, trying to break open the doors of this headquarters.

Alex tries to hide, run away. The mercenaries try to stop him, but Alex discovers in himself one by one amazing abilities - he is not harmed by bullets, he can jump high, throw heavy objects, run on the walls of buildings. And he can "absorb" people, taking their appearance and gaining knowledge about everything that the absorbed people know and remember. For example, after the takeover of one of the commanders of Blackwatch, Alex finds out that he has a sister.

Alex finds his sister and learns from her (this time without absorption) that he was an important employee of the company, at the headquarters of which we met him at the beginning of the game. Alex's job duties included working with biological weapons.

During the game, the army and the police consider Alex guilty of creating and spreading the virus, Blackwatch pursues Alex for other reasons, and Alex himself tries to stop the mutants and other opponents with all the power of their super abilities. Soon it turns out that among these superpowers there is the ability to turn his body into almost anything, including weapons, shield and armor.


All of Manhattan from the very beginning of the game is open for the game. Outside of Manhattan, however, you can not get out. The player can follow the story, and can perform separate missions. Due to the presence of super abilities, the hero can move both horizontally and on walls. But not as an insect, but just running. Falling from the height does not hurt Alex, so he can use this trick to defeat opponents - literally falling on their heads.

Alex can jump very high, and manage to plan in the air.

Alex fights, using the ability of his body to transform. His hands can turn into sledgehammers, blades, whips or shields. He can instantly increase the volume of his body's muscles to increase their strength - in normal mode, such a mass would have prevented him, so he does not wear all these muscles all the time. His skin can be turned into armor. He can also see in the dark and distinguish mutants from normal people by eyes.

All abilities can also be improved as you progress in the game and perform various tasks.

In addition to the super powers of the body, the hero uses assault rifles, machine guns, grenade launchers, rocket launchers, captures infantry combat vehicles, tanks, helicopters and uses their weapons.

Prototype reviews and comments

Super.... You really don't need to say more about this Game anymore. It has numerous Mini-missions, such as Races, Tank Experiences, battles Enemies, etc. But actually the Main Story is huge Fun for anyone who likes to slaughter Monsters, Civilians, Zombies and of course soldiers, besides, you can happily "put yourself" into People (literally) and thus infiltrate bases. By the Way, you almost get Bloodlust from all the Moves to kill ^ ^. So buy this Game if you really want to let off Steam.

Arguably the funniest, most exaggerated, unbalanced superhero/game there is. The Story is okay, Graphics are spades and the Sound track is okay, but what this Game seems like is the unbalanced Game system. And this time it benefits you and not your Opponents. If you're looking for a Game where you want to crush your Enemies with formidable Mutant Forces without even carrying a Scratch, you've come to the right place. I've had to laugh as rarely at a Game as I did at this one, I just can't take it seriously. You are fighting here with godlike Powers against Opponents who can do almost nothing. Like crushing Insects. Although the Game will be heavier against the end, here the Advantage is on your Side. You have dozens of Forces with which you can shred your Enemies, throw, crush or absorb your enemies, but there is no Danger, as the Enemies do only minimal Damage that you can heal. Even other Mutants, the only "serious" Enemies are so easy to defeat that it plays more like a Mutant Simulator Than a Proper Game. But that's nciht bad! Even if the Game has little to offer in the Area of Story, it just takes Fun after a frustaking day to walk a little Amok around the City and throw with Cars, drop People to the Top of Skyscrapers or cut a few Soldiers in half. There are still a lot To complain about. The Game is a Fail and in the Sense that it tries to take itself seriously. Story, Atmosphere, Gameplay, you can see quite clearly that the Developers didn't want to create a Parody but a serious Game. This is exactly where the Game fails, the Story is not told well, Cutscenes are usually very boring. The Gameplay looks like absorbing People gets points that you can put Into new Skills in a role-playing way. But, except that the Skills only offer more Opportunities to crush Opponents in an exaggerated way, they offer no higher Purpose. One is already too powerful from the Beginning and even more powerful to earth is just Exaggeration. At no Point in the Game is one challenged, at least seen from the Main Story. The only Challenges are the Time Races, where you have to run all the Checkpoints in a certain Time Slot and get a Medal based on that. Since this is more likely to be seen as an optional Addition, you can say the Game is too simple. Still, if you just want to host Chaos without being restricted, the right thing to do is. For even if the Military is chasing you, you can't care, no one can kill you. Definitely recommended!
