After a long history of developing games based on licensed franchises Radical Entertainment exercised a bit of creating freedom with the 2009 super-antihero open-world game Prototype. In 2012, they're back again with Prototype 2, a sequel of sorts, told from the perspective of a different character, but mostly just another excuse for more super-human sandbox carnage.
Reviewer Dave Kozicki has spent the last several days embracing the tender tendrils of James Heller for AusGamers and has predominantly good things to say:
Prototype 2 is just a massive sandbox that is just waiting to be destroyed at your pleasure as you jump, glide, punch, pummel, shoot, smash, infiltrate, absorb and consume any entity with a pulse that you can, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Prototype 2 is now available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with PC to follow in July.
