    Anyone pick this up? I didn't play the first one but heard it was good. I thought about picking the new one up. I need something new and exciting.

    I had the first one and enjoyed tearing the city to shreds w/ Alex Mercer. I haven't purchased any new games in quite a while, so I don't know if this one is any good, but from what I have read - it seems to be quite the upgrade from the last installment.

    I played the first one... it was pretty good - good fun... I can imagine that the second one would be worth a look :)

    I didn't play the first one either, but I must say I am quite interested in this. Probably pick it up after the price goes down. It's hard to justify spending that much on a game....(save skyrim ;))

    I liked the first one somewhat, but it had just about the worst story in gaming, ever.

    But it was still fun. Definitely a discount-bin/on-sale type buy for me though.

    I played and really liked prototype and I'm pretty sure the 2nd is going to be good too.

    Didn't play the 1st one but rented this one from Redbox. Fun game but it gets repetitive after the first few hours.

    More or less like the first. Fun but repetitive after a few hours. Although the opening cutscene in the first is kinda badass.

    I just finished it after getting it when it launched for the 360.

    What I will say is some added things made it easier to fight, play and finish this game vs 1. At the same time....those same things woulda made 1 better IMO. More frustrating times in 1.

    When I game gets too frustrating I stop playing for months, maybe years...lol.

    It woulda been good to play 1 first. It was fun trying to see if the area from 1 was in 2. And seeing what it looked at after 1.

    Played finished and enjoyed prototype one but it did have alot of issues and the last badguy was absolutely solid even on normal difficulty.

    Just finished prototype 2. really enjoyed it great game.

    Only problem i have with it was that they seemed to have gone abit too far the other way with the difficulty. Played my first playthrough on hard and it wasnt even challenging till i got to the 3rd island. And the final badguy only took a few goes and about 15 mins to defeat.
