About This Game

Welcome to New York Zero.

The sequel to Radical Entertainment’s best-selling open-world action game of 2009, Prototype® 2 takes the unsurpassed carnage of the original Prototype and continues the experience of becoming the ultimate shape-shifting weapon. You are Sgt James Heller, husband to a deceased wife and child and a soldier left simply to die.

As the game’s all-new infected protagonist, players will experience Sgt James Heller cutting a bloody swathe through the wastelands of post-viral New York Zero. Equipped with unparalleled new shapeshifting powers,players will gradually build a vast genetic arsenal of deadly new biological weapons and abilities as they hunt, kill and consume their way toward the ultimate goal – to kill…Alex…Mercer!

Are you ready to murder your maker?

Key Features:

  • The Power of Tendrils: Prepare to unleash the ultimate form of shape-shifting devastation. Sgt James Heller’s incredible new Tendril power lets you lift and tear apart cars and military vehicles, ensnare powerful infected beasts and even rip large groups of enemies to shreds. Get ready to unleash hell!
  • Customize Your Killer: Prototype 2 delivers the raw power of character customization back into your hands, allowing players to creatively mix-n-match a devastating range of new Mutation perks into their ultimate Prototype. Faster and bigger locomotion abilities, sharper claws or even enhanced disguise abilities – the choice is yours!
  • Hunt – Kill – Become: Imagine having the power to track down any enemy by unleashing a powerful sonar-pulse from your body! Sgt James Heller brings an all-new dimension to the Prototype experience by letting you Hunt, Kill and Become anyone standing in your way. Disguise yourself as a soldier, scientist or anyone at all whilst absorbing their memories and acquiring new abilities. It doesn’t get any better than this!
  • Bring Down the Devil: Gamers will experience the epic story of Sgt James Heller attempting to take down the devil himself… Alex Mercer. Unraveled against the explosive backdrop of New York Zero and it’s vicious factions warring for control over the infection, Prototype 2 sets the stage for the ultimate showdown “event” videogame of 2012.
  • Size Does Matter: Utilizing the unparalleled technology of Radical’s proprietary ‘Titanium 2.0’ engine, Prototype 2 will redefine gamer’s expectations of over-the-top open world action. Witness building-sized Infected behemoths bullrushing entire city streets, whilst gliding and parkouring across swarms of highly trained Blackwatch soldiers. Prototype 2 = Bigger, Badder, Better!
  • New York Zero: An All New Open-World Hunting Ground! The New York that humanity has come to know and love over the years no longer exists…it is now New York Zero, or more simply, NYZ.
PROTOTYPE 2’s NYZ open-world sandbox is broken up into three completely distinct zones. From the heavily militarized “Green Zone”, to the overcrowded refugee shanty town camps of the quarantined “Yellow Zone”, all the way to the war-ravaged nightmare known as the “Red Zone” – this is a city unlike anything gamer’s have experienced before. The home of Alex Mercer, the Red Zone portrays a nightmarish vision where the Blacklight virus has completely overrun the city’s shattered skyscrapers and population, with infection and the risk of death at every corner.

Completely unplayable me, as it locks up almost immediately after starting, even after trying all the possible fixes shared in the forum and elsewhere online. Unfortunately for me, I bought it from Humble, so I can't refund. Everyone who's able to play it seems to love it, but if you're going to take a chance on it, buy it directly from Steam so you can get your money back if it doesn't work.

This is defintely a recommended sale purchase. The game is short, but that is because there is no filler crap. Every minute in game you're doing something. Good progression and fun combat makes this game a blast from start to finish

In my opinion it's definitely better than the first one and I won't go into too much detail because it could ruin the game for you. I suggest you buy it and find out for yourself. I mean you can always refund it within a week or two if you don't like what you experience.

I cant even get past the third misson, cause for some reason every time the "optional objective" I have to complete starts the friggin game glitches and im then stuck trying to complete it. The worst part is normally I would say this is a great game and worth buying but unless this issue is ficked I would not recommend purchasing this game it is nothing but a waste.

I usually do not write a bad review if I cannot play the game (afterall the game could be really good), however because many people had the same problems:

I tried for hours to actually start the game, but it always stopped working. And when I finally managed that, it keeps hanging or crashing after a few minutes in game.

There are many suggestions to solve these problem, however none of them seem to work. I didn't try to download the unofficial (uncut) patch, because a) I had to download them from not trustworthy sites and b) that is what I use steam for.

So if you try your luck, make sure you do not try for to long so you can refund it if necessary.

Half way through the game, you'll start to notice some annoying glitches, mostly in the cutscenes. I have the game installed on an SSD but once in a while it'll randomly jump into a loading screen for a minute glitching things like muting all sound for the rest of the cutscenes (it goes into a loading screen in the middle of a cutscene or in the middle of a checkpoint "race" mission, etc). Combat can be a bit sloppy and annoying too because when you're trying to target and attack 1 thing, it can randomly decide to go after something else, or you're trying to consume something but instead, you pick up a weapon or a heavy object blowing your cover. Stuff like that.

Aside from the annoying stuff, the game is actually pretty good. I especially like how the game is pre-loaded at all times (aside from the glitched out stuff). Like, when you first load up the game into the main menu, the campaign is already loaded and playing in the background, the second you click Continue, the background rotates a bit to your location and you start playing.

I was able to complete the entire story as well as all the side story related missions (I didn't do any of the DLC stuff though as they were just challenge missions completely unrelated to the story). I do think this game is much better than the first one. And this game runs at a very solid 60+ fps on my GTX 660 at maximum graphics settings.

I don't understand why more people didn't play this game when it was released. This is one of my favourite games, it's fun, immersive and well designed. There are some technical problems with it now and it is a shame that the PC port isn't better.

I read today that there is a Biohazard collection available on PS4 and Xbone with both this, the first game and the DLC included. GameSpot reviewed it and just criticised how it's a bad port on those systems as well. They didn't mention any of the games strenghts which is normal actualy when it comes to the Prototype series but a big shame in my opinion.

With a few tweaks here on PC the game is running pretty good for me. However there are still some frame drops and some stuttering but this decreases in the later areas. It's a shame that I can't experience it with better performance but it's still an amazing game. Which I am enjoying alot regardless of these issues.

It's packed with interesting content, immersive menu screens, good sound design and a great athmosphere throughout.
I put a SweetFx profile on it too and it looks pretty good. It's just a shame nobody has modded in a HD remaster yet like they did with Remember Me for example.

Anyway, I highly recommend you buy and play this game, especially if it's on sale.
Grab the Radnet DLC too for more cool content.

Even with it's technical problems the game can still be enjoyed and is definitely worth playing.
I googled some fixes before I started and I'm having a blast with it now.

Become A Ultimate Shape-Shifting Weapon

Taking place a year after the events in the first Prototype, Prototype 2 is gritty, bloody story about revenge. You play as James Heller, a soldier in the military, freshly made infected by the main character of the last game, Alex Mercer. He has given you the power to get revenge for your wife and daughter, who died because of what is known as the Mercer Virus, supposedly released by Blackwatch (the acting military force in the New York (or what's left of it). As the game progresses, while the missions you do may change, revenge remains your motive, and anything that stands in your way will be killed, blown up, or consumed.

9,9/10 Will like it

UPDATE: There is a fix that if applied makes the game work great if you are running an AMD card:

http://steamcommunity.com/app/115320/discussions/0/451852225145790704/

I changed it to recommended but you have to take into consideration that if it were not for the community, this game would still be unplayable for me. Thanks to the community, however, I am recommending this game because you can get it to work, albeit in a roundabout way that does not include the work of the developers trying to fix the problem. Great game though.

Old Review: This game starts running at 1fps, and then after the first cutscene, it goes down again to 1fps, then crashes. This game is utterly unplayable and they will not be patching it. Avoid if you have an AMD card.

This is a great game. Your basically a superhero running around a city. The city itself is similar to that of gta3, pushing 4. There's plenty of people on the ground, cars don't really appear, as everything is in a military lock down. You the hero basically run around running up buildings and leap / glide around the world. The level system works well letting you pit skill points where you see fit.
The story is good, your piecing together events from memories of those you consue

Early on the game will bug out when using the claws, there's a affinity bodge that works well and once done you can set the game back to all cores.
I love it
