Prototype 1 AND Prototype 2 AND all the DLC for only $7.49?



Amazon is killing it with these deals. Like the Square Enix pack they had earlier, I predict this will sell out very quickly.

Edit: This sale is only open for 2 hours. Or so I hear. (Aaaand I just realized this was already mentioned in the OP. Reading fail)

Saw it on Slickdeals earlier and jumped on it.

I've not played either game. Which is better - P1 or P2?

Keep in mind I haven't played Prototype 2 but I heard it wasn't that great, however I greatly enjoyed the first game back when it was released. I loved the open world feel and the different abilities.

Damn, I missed it. Would have picked that up in a heartbeat.

Loved the first Prototype, although many people gave it bad reviews, but couldn't quite bring myself to buy the 2nd even @ $20 when it was on sale (because of worse reviews).

The bundle will be coming back for a longer sale at $9.99. The $7.50 price was just for that few hour window for the flash deal.

The first one works with xbox controller just fine, I take it?
Indeed it does!

I just started playing Prototype 1, and it's a blast. I'm surprised no one ever told me how fun this game was. It plays like a good, old-fashioned "superhero game" from the PS1 or N64 or something. In fact it reminds me a lot of Spiderman 2. It doesn't try to be realistic at all, and it doesn't try to be too dark 'n' edgy. It's just balls-of-the-walls fun. A game that revels in being a game.

Grabbed it. Loved the first, skipped the second since the protagonist actually seemed less likable then Mercer, which takes a bit of work. Thanks!

Well, beat the second. Gameplay is one step forward, one step back. The plot is awful and completely inconsistent with the first game. $10 is about what it was worth.

I wasn't a huge fan of the first one, as battle difficulty just jumped all over the place and the story was pretty awful. The battle system itself was pretty fun though, I felt like it was a great game that ended up mediocre because of lack of polishing of the product (or the dev team liked it as it was).

Not biting on this since I already own the first and I haven't heard especially good things about 2.

Bought it. To think this was a 50 dollar game just a few months ago. 10 dollars id well wroth it for prototype 2.
