Discover what lies beyond the edge of evolution. An all-new, 3rd person open-world/action game, Prototype puts gamers at the helm of Alex Mercer - a genetically mutated shape-shifter with no memory of his past hell-bent on solving the mystery of his existence - as he tears through a densely populated New York City moving with Parkour-style fluidity and consuming anybody that gets in his way... assuming their physical identity, memories and abilities.
Building the ULTIMATE PROTOTYPE - This isn't your usual sandbox game: The Prototype himself has DOZENS of incredibly useful ATTACKS, MANEUVERS, and ABILITIES he accrues by earning EVOLUTION POINTS throughout the adventure. Naturally, the guide provides not only a complete list of how many Evolution Points different aspects of the game (enemies, completing Missions, collecting items) are worth, but also what you can spend your points on: UPGRADES. Every single UPGRADE available to you throughout your adventure is showcased, with FRAME PICTURES showing the consequence of each MANEUVER. You ll learn how much each Upgrade costs, what it does, and when to Purchase it. This is the KEY to unlocking the MOST POWERFUL ATTACKS and MOVES in your repertoire!
METICULOUS WALKTHROUGH COVERAGE - The MAIN BULK of this guide reveals all of ALEX'S MISSIONS in meticulous detail. However, instead of simply giving you a bland list of objectives, each of the 27 Missions comes complete with an OVERVIEW and CITY MAP showing pictures of the major LOCATIONS for each Mission, essentially briefing you on what to expect. After this, MULTIPLE COMPLETION METHODS and ADVANCED COMBAT TACTICS allow you to choose a variety of ways to play. BOSSES are taken down, too. This guidance doesn't end there, either: There's a section on the 60 EVENTS accessible in the game. Not only will you learn exactly when these become accessible, but there are tried and tested Tactics for gaining the FABLED PLATINUM RATING, along with a special RADICAL SCORE (which doesn't even appear in the game!) that only the very finest players can hope to beat!
COMPLETE COLLECTIBLES, AND APPENDICES - When you're not practicing COMBO ATTACKS, or perfecting your EVENTS Scores, you'll find a HOST of COLLECTIBLES to find to uncover secrets, Achievements, and gain more Evolution Points. Trickiest of all is the WEB of INTRIGUE; 131 victims to search through the streets of Manhattan and CONSUME to reveal Memories of those responsible for this viral OUTBREAK. Fortunately, the guide has TAGGED and BAGGED them all, giving easy-to-understand instructions on how to gather them all. Also, there's numbered map locations where all 250 COLLECTIBLES can be grabbed, with a picture showing the exact spot of each one. To finish, there's a complete series of APPENDICES, handy checklists showing exactly how all your UPGRADES and EVENTS appear, as well as your ACHIEVEMENTS and TROPHIES.
(And we didn't even mention the 40+ page Gallery of exclusive art, double-sized poster showing all of ALEX'S moves and COMBOS, the complete WEB OF INTRIGUE, and every secret of Manhattan Island!)
