Prototype Trophy Guide. Difficulty: *** A third-person action title as anti-superhero Alex Mercer absorbs likeness and memories from people around him. Requires both time and some skills for the Platinum, as well as a playthrough on Hard mode.
[Prototype] is a third-person action game, much in the tradition of Infamous, with a comic book like feeling.
The Blacklight plague is spreading through Manhattan, mutating people into vile creatures which desire nothing else but to kill those uninfected. Blackwatch, a black ops organization, has been sent into contain the infection.
You play as Alex Mercer, a shapeshifter suffering from amnesia. Alex has the power to "absorb" other people, acquiring their likeness and even memories. You must follow the clues to the virus' origin, avoid getting shot at by Blackwatch soldiers, and save Manhattan from the infestation.
The game has received fairly positive reviews by most online gaming websites, ranging average scores of 82% for its interesting story and character, imaginative abilities to play with, but mediocre scenery and sensitive controls.
This game can either be difficult and rather time consuming, or time consuming and sort of difficult, depending on how you play. You will need to playthrough at least twice - once on Medium in order to unlock Hard, then again on Hard. It's up to you whether or not you also try to acquire the Hard To Kill trophy - which requires you to playthough without dying - while collecting other trophies on Medium. It could save you a third playthrough, but would be very difficult.
Overall, this Platinum is certainly doable, but will take up a fair amount of time, patience, and skill.
NOTE: The trophies on the PS4 share a separate list from those on the PS3.
As we mentioned earlier, you can either take things slow and easy by starting on Easy mode, or go straight into Medium - which is necessary to unlock Hard mode. Either way, you want to make your way through the story, unlocking Nice Guy, Half-Truths, Mankind Is Your Mask, Hard To Kill, and the Return Fire trophies along the way.
Once the story is complete, the city is open for you to roam around, and mop up any missing trophies.
By now, you should have all of them, except for Revenge Revisited, which requires you to start a new game, and select Hard mode. Once you get through, the trophy - and Platinum - will unlock.
