Prototype 2 marks a fresh start for Activision and Radical Entertainment's super-powered, open-world affair, thanks to a brand new lead – one James Heller, a former Army sergeant on a quest to take down original hero Alex Mercer for causing the deaths of his family. Injected with the virus, Heller becomes every bit the insanely aggressive warrior he's trying to kill, with the ability to spawn blade claws from his limbs, toss dumpsters with ease, and glide around the city. He's just like a superhero, albeit without the colorful spandex. Our last hands-on showed Heller to be a bit hypocritical in his aims, but considering the immense amount of mayhem you can cause in New York Zero, that may not really matter a whole lot in the end.
