Prototype 2 is an action-adventure open world video game that was released for consoles on April 24, 2012. It was developed by Canadian studio Radical Entertainment and is the sequel to 2009's Prototype. The game was published by Radical Entertainment's owner, Activision. The game features a new protagonist, James Heller, as he goes on a quest to destroy the Blacklight virus. The story is also one of revenge, as Heller wants to kill Alex Mercer, protagonist of the original Prototype, after his family was killed in the outbreak of the Blacklight virus. The game was announced at the 2010 Spike VGA Awards with the tagline "Murder your Maker."

Ok managed to fix the settings now. Getting 60s with Vsync on, can get 80+ without but it causes mouse lag. Pretty bad port imo.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. No matter how good your PC can be, you'll probably fall in the **ty optimization category. My specs meet the recommended reqs, but I still can't get more than 10 FPS on lowest res with lowest settings.

I have 20 fps on everything low on 1440x900. I get 40 fps ultra on shadow of mordor which is a lot more demanding, so I got no idea. Try it and post results.
