The world of superhero video games has actually remained pretty small over the years, being mostly limited in the recent decade to movie tie-in games only. The main exception to this rule has been the MMORPG market, where City of Heroes and City of Villains have been running relatively strong for years.

Ever eager to expand, of course, Activision have put together a bit of a new idea - a stand-alone "original superhero" game, backed by the same engine they've used for Spider-Man 3 and Spider-Man: Web of Shadows. The good news for the property is that the engine is capable of doing just about everything they would like to accomplish, and did quite well.

Unfortunately for Activision, while Prototype is a great start for a possible franchise, it really only rises to the level of a semi-mediocre title. Great ideas, a bit of an issue with execution. It's one of those that leaves players looking for a sequel, while not having stellar memories of the game itself.
