In Which The Man In Prototype 2 Uppercuts A Helicopter


Now then. I'm not going to get into the hyperbole of this Prototype 2 trailer, titled the "Top 11 Reasons You Need PROTOTYPE 2". Frankly if you do need, actually need, something as grim as Prototype 2 in your life then I have concerns about your well-being. There are piles of inventive, awful deaths in this catalogue of cruelty, but it's nothing anyone could need. I can't even begin to describe what happens at number 10. But for all the smeary, gloopy, wobbly innards flying past the camera, my favourite is number 6: he gently places a soldier down on the edge of the building and the slight momentum causes him to stumble off the edge. I like my evil with a smidge of elegant cruelty.

Dare you click to see the horrors inflicted on the citizens of New York?

I can't believe you did. A quick recap: it's a game where you have immense superpowers and all of New York to use them in. You are not a nice person. The original game let you run up a skyscraper while carrying a taxi. I don't need to add any more.

The PC won't see it until Summer, July 24th.
