No kidding~~this reason alone makes him one of the most annoying game characters I've ever played with, and I do say Eff a lot, so it's not like I have a problem with saying the word.
Even with all the complaints about Mercer being "too quiet", or not having enough personality, he's still got a ton more than Heller in the first game. On top of that the original Mercer (Not the big nosed joke they made him in this game) just simply had the best outfit, best moves, and better everything else.
And wtf happened with the story anyway....I swear whoever wrote it didn't even play the first Prototype. People can argue all they want that Mercer was actually nothing more than the virus, which is mostly true, except for the end when he flies a bomb away to save the city when he easily could have just broke out himself and left. There was obviously some semblance of humanity in him left, whereas if he was just the virus, it would be all consuming and wouldn't care.
Graphics are slightly better, and there is a better feel of depth and height with the taller buildings. The leaping grab is cool as well as an addition. Pretty much everything else though was garbage, and even on insane difficulty, a child could beat this game. No challenge at all unlike Prototype 1, where the last boss on the hardest difficulty was more of a fight and you actually felt like you accomplished something when beating it.
He's a soldier, who are known for being potty mouths out in the field. Coupled with the fact that he's no longer human, his wife's dead, and his daughter is god knows where, as well as the fact that none of this is his fault would make him pretty pissed.
Be honest, anybody in Heller's shoes would have just snapped and killed everything around him.
I have a habit of killing topics I post in. Completely unintentional.
