Prototype wasn't bad, but inFamous showed in comparison how much better it could have been. Not to mention inFamous 2, that one will kill P2.

For me, the joy of Prototype was doing insane maneuvers and essentially flying around the city. inFamous didn't really have this, as you were stuck with electric powers. In Prototype, you're closer to being the Hulk. In inFamous, you're closer to being Electro.

I'm also glad that Prototype didn't adopt the same half-assed morality system as inFamous. Binary morality is worthless, especially when your moral alighment is tied into the powers you gain. There's no thought involved. If you want the "good" powers, you choose the "good" options. If you want the "evil" powers, you choose the "evil" options. It's so utterly contrived and shallow. Moral choices need to be ambiguous and thought-provoking with equally compelling options.
Totally agree. For me inFamous felt weaker than Prototype which was much much more fun. I got about 35% through inFamous and was totally uninspired by the gameplay to continue playing.

I enjoyed the game overall but a lot of people here are glossing over its flaws. There is a lot of room for improvement.
I also agree with this. While Prototype was fun, it could definitely use some tightening up which I hope they'll do with this sequel.
