Can't believe the lack of interest in this game. Gameplay and graphics look great.

Gameplay could be fun... looks about like Hulk: Ultimate Destruction which I thought was fun... I am buying this just because I am a fan of the super hero sandbox gameplay genre... just hope it turns out to be half as good as Infamous has been.

Unfortunately, not even close. I won't be buying this thing. It's annoying as hell...

People are talking about how similar to InFamous this looks and InFamous is out now and is overshadowing Prototype (in hype), IMHO.

I've actually played the game extensively, hence my comments...

Another boring hack and slash like Wolverine. Waste of time. Played a few hours on a 360.

I just noticed that they are the same developers that made Hulk: Ultimate Destruction. I watched some clips of that game at gametrailers and the Prototype is identical to that. So, if you liked that one, this is a game you should not miss...

Can you expand a bit? Why is the game annoying?

It's a free-roaming beat-em up. That's not the annoying part though. It does things fine(lots of mayhem, superman-like abilities, full freedom etc. )

My main problem with it is that it gets a bit repetitive and the difficulty curve is all over the place. You can lose time after time on one mission (on one boss I lost 30 times in a row) due to the incredible difficulties the designers chose to implement and then breeze through the next one without losing once, like strolling the park... There's also a lack of enough checkpoints on some points. Certain sequences require you to do something really hard 10 times in a row (each time takes 2-3 minutes) and you have to start from the beginning if something goes wrong. I nearly threw the controller at the screen... My hands actually hurt after each session, I had pain in my joints and felt tired from all the button pushing...

I'd rate it as a 7. It's interesting, it's fun. It can become boring and the main story missions become very annoying from time to time. So annoying that it ruined the game for me...

There, trying not to reveal any spoilers...
