Prototype 2, Xbox360, £37.99 With most mature action adventure titles, you’ll spend ages assembling an armoury that gives you the firepower to really send your enemies packing.

But here, in Prototype 2’s arresting environment of New York Zero, it’s actually you that is the ultimate shape-shifting weapon.

On the plot-front, a vicious viral outbreak has killed Sgt James Heller’s family and transformed him into a Prototype.

Powered by revolutionary powers, you must hunt, kill and consume your way across the ravaged wasteland to take revenge on the man responsible: Alex Mercer.

Yep, that’s right — you from the last game!

It’s another very polished production of over-the-top adult entertainment that will have you wince, whimper and whoop in equal measure as you harness the incredible powers bestowed upon you and raise havoc across the city.

Not one for the faint-hearted, but Prototype 2 should definitely be top of your console shopping list this month if you loved the first instalment.
