Prototype's lead character--a guy haunted by his past and fighting a secret war in New York City--is not Max Payne, but Alex Mercer, a very different character. Mercer can use shapeshifting powers to steal the skills and abilities of his enemies. This may sound mundane in a video game sense, like Grand Theft Auto crossed with Kirby, but Radical is focusing on providing a free-form movement system to provide "over-the-top action" across the urban landscapes.
"Prototype can climb or wall-run across any surface, jump 30 stories high, and destroy anything that crosses his path,Â” said Radical president Kelly Zmak. Radical is responsible for games such as Hulk (PC, PS2, Xbox, GCN) and Scarface: The World is Yours (PC, PS2, Xbox).

I reckon Nick Breckon is trying to make me like this game.
Haha, not really. It looks like if The Incredible Hulk snuck up behind Asscreed and they had a baby 9 months later.
Saving an abortion line for future coverage if it turns out bad.
