Prototype (Microsoft Xbox 360, 2009)

In Prototype for the Xbox 360, you are put in the role of a smart, young scientist named Alex Mercer as the virulent plague, known as Blacklight, terrorizes Manhattan. Once you awake in the morgue at the beginning of the game with no memory of your past and powerful shapeshifting abilities, your ultimate journey in the plague- and zombie-filled Manhattan begins. You'll shapeshift and absorb other beings as you navigate the island and discover new, exotic powers. Boasting an open-world format, you maintain complete control of Alex's actions, whether you're crushing the head of an innocent bystander or fighting off hordes of infected, monstrous citizens. Moreover, you can undergo 31 missions, including everything from seek-and-destroy affairs to strategic infiltrations to epic boss battles.

Cons Overpriced, No Online Play, predictable
