Metacritic – 360

Cozwn: It’s a fancy sandbox button basher with combat not as deep as something like Ninja Gaiden 2 but it’s certainly better than Crackdown. It can be hard to get a bead on who is attacking you at some points but thankfully your powers seem ‘intelligent’ and only attack ‘baddies’ and your lock-on seems quite smart too (i.e. you can’t lock-on civilians). You have a lot of health so bullets don’t do much damage but as bazookas and the brutes can mess you up, you can’t just be mindless.

Metacritic PS3

Telephone Thing: I’m having so much more fun with Prototype than I was with Infamous it’s not even funny. Infamous just seems so mannered and restrained in comparison; even playing as a bad guy, there’s not really much potential to Fuck Shit Up beyond three or four gas stations that all go up in the same, minimally destructive explosion and cars that detonate in the feeblest way imaginable. Meanwhile, Prototype lets me destroy a Blackhawk by throwing a goddamn tank at it. And the Whipfist! Oh my god, the Whipfist alone is more fun than any of the powers in Infamous by an order of magnitude.

Eurogamer Review

Polyphonic: This game might be straight-up garbage in some ways, but the core experience is flying around, swooping into crowds and murdering people in the most absurd and satisfying ways. Then, run up the side of a building and glide away on your squirrel wings.

EZ Snappin: One of my favorite last-gen games was Hulk: Ultimate Destruction. This is Hulk with more people, more powers, and better graphics. It’s a mayhem simulator without equal, despite the creepy emo hero.
