Some rereleased games from previous-generation hardware offer plenty of incentives for returning players to invest anew, including improved graphics, fresh content, augmented controls, and special features. Prototype Biohazard Bundle, unfortunately, has none of these. It simply delivers two old games plus all DLC at a reasonable (though not altogether cheap) price and bumps both up to 1080p, making them look a bit crisper on bigger TVs. Beyond that, both games are more or less identical to the versions that appeared on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. If you've paid for and played them before, there's no reason to buy them again now.

That said, older players who've never played either game and enjoy dark, gritty superhero dramas might want to consider this bundle. Neither game adds much to the (now well-worn) open-world superhero formula, but one of Mercer and Heller's more interesting powers is the ability to "consume" enemies to gain their strength and memories. It's an original way to evolve narrative that adds suspense and can make for some pretty dramatic storytelling corkscrews. Lackluster rerelease details aside, both games remain playable and fun, if perhaps just a bit creaky.
