If you played the first Prototype and liked the story, Prototype 2 will be a letdown. The story has all the major underlying plotlines - which were left hanging in the last game - are all but completelly ignored, in favor of some easier to understand "angry soldier kills tough guy". The final battle with Mercer feels too cheap and easy even in the higher difficulty settings, and the ending itself is one big meh.
Prototype 2 also simplifies the power and upgrading system, the new one feeling so much shallower than the original; we also see that many of the interesting powers from the first game didn't make a return on this one.
If you need a game in which you slice people up at will, go ahead and buy this; if you expected a true sequel and an ending to the many cliffhangers of the original Prototype, well, you'll be left hanging.
Edit: I see a lot of people complaining about the port, which was, in my experience, one of the greatest parts of this game, with the controls being extremelly fluid, no noticeable lag or technical problems (running on a GTX960 at max settings).
