inFamous VS Prototype – Which One Is Better?

A short while back, I reviewed Prototype and found it to be a pretty fun experience.

I have now finally also had the chance to get some good playtime into inFamous and was astounded to see how different the two games really are.

Both look similar on paper, but once you are playing them you quickly realise that they come from two different worlds. One is realistic, huge and intricate and the other is more focussed, detailed and easier on the learning curve.

To sort this out, Gametrailers have put up a versus video that shows off the different aspects of each game, with the main idea that users will vote and give a definitive answer.

I have also made my choice as well as posted the video, after the jump.

Ok so here is the video, check it out and tell us what you think.

I have to personally say that after putting time into both games, my vote would have to go to inFamous. The game feels like it captures the essence of what console gaming is all about, and in the end I find that it is just a “better place to be” when compared to Prototype.

I am enjoying both, but if I had to recommend only one to someone, it would be inFamous. It’s a dog damn shame that it’s only available on PS3.

    I have to agree i picked up InFamous first finished it on good got ProtoType just after that played about 40min naah back to InFamous Evil this time round

  • Prototype sucks.generic trash.more generic and full of empty promise than any campaign slogans we heard in the elections.

  • Besides the clear gameplay plus points I throw in the way of Infamous,the awesome story and epic punchline at the end makes it priceless.Honestly,Prototype and the little it offers,should cost under R500.dissapointing.especially cuz its looks EXACTLY like The Hulk game.made by the hulk devs.its just the main character model thats different.just dont buy that fraud of a game.if you own it,trade it in and get Fight Night 4 ,like me:)

  • I haven’t played inFamous but I’m waiting for my chance to get my hands on it and I’m looking forward to it.

    Prototype was an awesome game, and I tried as long as I could to keep from finishing it. I finally did finish it the other weekend.

    What I really liked about it is the idea of the web of intrigue you really need to collect memories to fill in the gaps of the story, so some people who may have rushed through it, may get confused by the ending.

    I really wouldn’t take Strife’s advice it doesn’t seem credible, but if you’re unsure on getting it I’ll definitely vouch for it and so do these places:

    Im really enjoting infamous just hate the pop ups!

  • Sorry, a bit too busy enjoying that fraud of a game
    to get rid of it just yet 😛

  • Yip.in the sincerest way possible,maybe Im not easily impressed.the game is pretty sub standard. . .and the story isnt that rich,I totally got bored of it.

  • I have to agree with kold here. I’ve got both of the games on the PS3. And even though Infamous is a lot of fun, I enjoyed Prototype a lot more.

    Prototype also have more replay value for me… having the New Game+ and the open-end play at the end is great.

    Still playing Infamous though… got a bit more to go before finishing it

    I dunno I downloaded the trailer for Prototype some time ago ,and now that i think about it.. It does look like a generic HULK. Naaah.. Game seems to complicated anyways.. I just want a point and click… *Sigh*
