"Pretty enjoyable!"
4 stars"

I picked this up at a discount and expected to be unimpressed. I was wrong!

While not gods gift to FPS it certainly held my imagination for a while. The levels are well designed with all sorts of variation in settings and a slew of interesting and challenging dimensional puzzles to keep you occupied. The storyline could be better as is often the case with modern games but the developers have at least tried to expand on their characters and settings. Weapons are of interesting design also, appearing as living guns with cool abilities. They are however fairly run of the mil in action.

All up i enjoyed the game alot. I can only hope DNF is half as well done as Prey.

"The ZM of video games"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Just like the music on most commercial radio stations this game had great production but very little content. This game really looks great. The Doom 3 engine is great for atmosphere but the plot, characters and universe it's set in are just not very interesting. The enemies are not paticularly fun to kill and the weapons you use to do that aren't satisfying to use. In the end the novel physics and portal elements just can't save this game from being less than engaging.

"not good"
1 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game is so so so so slow; it takes 30+minutes to actually get some action. The cut scenes are poor; however, some of the messages in the bathroom were quite funny. Overall a terrible game, i only paid $10 for it and I still feel that I got ripped off.

"solid shooter"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

this game is a pretty solid shooter. nice weapons and design. decent story. its re-playability isnt its strong point. the gimmick of the game is you dont die, but go to the other world to get your powers back. it works as a story device but means you cannot lose at this game.

"Ok but nothing special"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game might have been more fun if I had not just finished playing Borderlands GOTY. This game got very repetitive to me – same enimies throughout. All very easy to kill. Only died like 10 times during the whole game. Had good fun playing it though. The portal system made it very interesting and somewhat challenging at times. Some of the puzzels took quite a bit of thinking (and some youtubing I must admit – esp the cube one haha). Good game if you've got a day off work.

"A must own shooter I cant beleive I didnt buy it earlier!"

A great FPS that does something different to others.

Description

Prey tells the story of Tommy, a Cherokee garage mechanic stuck on a reservation going nowhere. His life changes when an otherworldly crisis forces him to awaken spiritual powers from his long-forgotten birthright. Abducted along with his people to a menacing mothership orbiting Earth, he sets out to save himself and his girlfriend and eventually his planet.

Prey is serious, dark story, based on authentic Cherokee mythology. Themes of sacrifice, love and responsibility are explored and the story dives into emotional territory not yet explored by similar games.

  • Highly organic, living environment that itself can attack Tommy.
  • A deep, emotional story of love and sacrifice.
