Maybe I didn't give this game enough credit in my first review. Ever since I played this, it's been growing on me and sticking in my head.

Prometheus Academy is a story about superpowers. Specifically, a superpower school. But what could've been another, generic, Sky High clone instead turned out to be one of the best games on this site. You see, Prometheus Academy isn't a school for heroes... it's a school for villains.

You play as Mia, a young girl who had her family massacred by an explosion. An explosion that could've been prevented if the Crimson Cape, the flying brick archetype of the story, would've been the tiniest bit more careful.

After being recruited into Prometheus Academy, you get a badass cyborg arm and eye to replace the ones you lost. At this point, the game takes on a rather 'unique' school dynamic. Every student is cussing, swearing, and beating the shit out of each other in some way or another.

The game becomes very much linear at this point, which was an understandable disappointment. The story transitions into picking groups of classes, picking the choices that obviously correspond with what you would've learned in those classes, and enjoying an ending.

That's where Steve's writing shines the most, though. Each ending is thrilling in its own right. Mia doesn't feel empty or jump for joy after killing the Crimson Cape, she just feels... satisfied. Just satisfied. That's when you realize she either let go of her family a long time ago, or didn't ever love them in the first place.

Either way, Mia just wanted to get away with killing the city's greatest hero. And that, is fucking awesome.

The story was great. I like how each character had their own unique personality that is easily identifiable between them. The plot was quite interesting and I enjoyed the environment that was around. The writing was alright except for a few typos here and there but nothing to devastating. However, I did feel there was a lack of variety in the choices you could make. It felt very linear to me in that there was only one choice that would make you win the game. In addition, I felt the ending was kind of anti-climactic, brushed over and rushed. Don't get me wrong, the ending was fitting for your character and satisfying (don't want to give away spoilers) but it just was very disappointing considering everything that had led up to it. Overall, I enjoyed the story and had a great time going through it. It kept my attention and I was engaged until the very end. I give this game a 6/8. Pretty solid!

HA! I killed Micheal in the end. That was my favorite ending. (Micheal is a drunken prick who can die in the deepest, darkest, and most fiery places in Hell.) I loved the story and saw why it won the contest. I only noticed a few spelling errors. EX:
Mona is already tucked in [her] bed, [his] red, ruddy face looking up at you from under the covers.
or when you said, tot he, instead of, to the, this made me smile. Overall it was a great story and I enjoyed it a lot.

The grammar was patchy and the errors present sometimes were a little distracting, but the story was fantastic and quite enjoyable.

One of the best stories I have ever read! I went back and got every ending and choice and I still want more!

I got the wolf ending. The game was a bit shorter than I expected but I'm not sure if that's just my fault. Overall the game had well-developed characters, a good plot, and few grammar mistakes. I give it solid seven, which is crazy since NOTHING is better than Reeses.
