    I enjoyed the first one until it got repetitive and turned into a huge chore.

    Nope, not where DB is concerned.

    The first game looked terrific, and turned out to be a big disappointment.

    I still think there are some ideas buried in there that have great potential.

    I loved the game from start to finish. Did this come out around the same time as Infamous? I remember trying to decide between this and something else but do not regret buying it at all.

    Just enjoy jumping from a skyscraper, flying around for a bit & dropping down & killing a load of things. I love games like that (Crackdown also springs to mind).

    I would welcome a sequel. Just hope they don't do what Ruffian did with Crackdown 2 and have a totally new setting.

    Duffmeister, if you're looking to get into the story of the first one you're honestly not missing much by not playing it. It was a generic mess as far as I recall, with zero reason to root for your character.

    So saying, I enjoyed it to begin with for just messing about in a Crackdown type way, but as Dirtbox said at the start of the thread it really did turn into a boring grind. I made myself finish it and I was really glad to get done with it. I even plopped it on ebay right afterwards.

    It must be pennies on ebay etc if you can't find anyone willing to trade/sell here though.

    Been playing this for a few hours now and whilst it's fun to zip around the city and wreak havoc, the missions are so incredibly repetitive uninspired.

    "Find X character and consume him, then enter facility and hack computer". Rince, repeat, with the tiniest of variations.

    Not sure the open world play will keep me playing in the long haul, I need more eventful missions.

    Just to confirm you mean P2 and not the first game ?
    Give us some facts and figures please ;)

    Yup, Prototype 2. Aside from more fluid controls and streamlined level up system, it's very similar to the first. Graphically it's much improved and the frame rate holds up during the mayhem, but as I've said, I'll get bored of it all before long without some proper interesting missions.

    Anything you want to know in particular? :p

    Got my copy this morning and it's a good game, as said above, the controls feel a lot better. The graphics are better but still not as good as some more recent games. But there is a lot of fun to be had dashing around the city and some of the new powers are awesome. Going to play more later and will give more thoughts!

    Seems similar to the transition between crackdown and crackdown 2. I did not like crackdown2.
    Is this worth the buy at full price?

    Sounds very much like the first game, then. Are there any sidequests outside of the main mission, or is it more time trials and "kill X in Y seconds" type challenges scattered throughout the map? I got very bored w/ P1 myself just b/c there wasn't much to do outside the story missions but fly around the map and kill stuff.

    Stryker - there are side missions now that unlock new moves or upgrades.

    Am I the only one wondering why there was so much hype and build up for this including midnight launches for a game that's first title wasn't all that great? Advert on TV is dreadful too.

    And no reviews yet for it either. Hmm. Suspicious.
