Prototype is more than just demolishing Manhattan

Apparently Radical Entertainment’s open-world sandbox destruct-o-thon, Prototype, involves more than being a dick to the citizens of NYC. This video, narrated by the game’s executive producer, Tim Bennison, highlights some of the missions the main character, Alex Mercer, will get his shape shifting, superhuman self into. While the requisite rescue scenario looks pretty Spider-Man 2 awesome, it’s the identity copying that really makes me want to hump the air. Not only does Alex kill and absorb some poor sap to become him, but he tricks the dude’s comrades to off one of their own then he calls down an air strike to ruin everyone’s day. That’s top-shelf dickishness right there and I want to be a part of it.
