The first Prototype was just that; a promising if flawed tease of what Radical's vision could evolve into. We're hoping Prototype 2 can move beyond mere promise, however, and deliver on its potential with as much gore and glee as possible. The sequel is shaping up quite nicely, as evidenced in this new trailer unleashed by Activision, showcasing James Heller's all new tendril powers.
So, impressions: Matt's already had a look at Prototype 2 in some depth, but the video spends a lot more time detailing Heller's power, specifically the tendrils. You can unleash these sinewy strands at any moment in the game, snaring enemies or environmental objects to spin a vast web of dynamic destruction. It's a great piece of tech, with bodies, cars and more strung up and swung around; but it feels a little like Radical is hyping an otherwise forgettable feature to me.
