Product Details:

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.

In Prey, gamers enter an unpredictable world where nothing can be taken for granted. Most of the game takes place within a living ship, a giant entity that can sense and react to Tommy's presence.

Prey makes use of Joseph's Campbell's renowned story structure, "The Hero's Journey," for guiding the main character arc. Campbell's extensive work on mythological story progression was made famous when George Lucas used it for Luke Skywalker's story arc in the original Star Wars.

* Built on an enhanced Doom 3 engine, the most impressive 3D engine used in a released game.

* Portal technology adds a new dimension to gameplay, allowing enemies to appear out of thin air and create new and completely original puzzles and gameplay styles.

* Several never-before-seen gameplay elements such as Spirit Walking, Wall Walking, and Deathwalk.

* Highly organic, living environment that itself can attack Tommy.

* A deep, emotional story of love and sacrifice.

* Tommy has a sidekick, a spiritual hawk that can help him fight enemies and decipher the alien language of the living ship.

* Multiplayer game support that takes advantage of the unique gameplay styles in Prey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A sadly underrated gem This game breaks the mold of your garden variety "shoot everything that moves" shooters that are shoved down our throats these days. The game dares to be different, but it's a shame that most gamers prefer the stale Battlefield, Call Of Duty, and other games. Seriously, all these games are anymore are just a new weapons and map pack that the companies push out once a year for sixty dollars, and people only buy them for the multiplayer. Shoot me down if you want, but if you do, you're only deluding yourself. All ranting aside, Prey is unique in a few ways, such as walking on walls and ceilings, a spirit walk mechanic, using portals (this was before Portal, mind you) and no real in game death. You read that right; you don't die. See, dying is supposed to be a punishment for failing. But let's be honest here, that interrupts the flow of the story. Prey decided to go a different route; when Tommy (the protagonist) loses all of his health, he is taken to a mini game where he must shoot down spirit birds to get back health and spirit energy. Red ones give health, and blue ones give energy. This way, you don't get sent back to the last checkpoint and have to replay parts of the story you've already seen just to get back to where you were. Speaking of, there are no checkpoints, the game lets you save whenever you want, so it's a good game to sit down and play if you only have a few minutes. The weapons variety is nice. You start with your wrench for a melee weapon, but that gets obsolete very quickly; you only need to do dispatch a handful of enemies until you get your first gun, then you never even need it anymore. Your first gun is a smaller machine gun that replenishes a small amount of ammo when you run out. That's just one example of the guns Prey has to offer. The story is cool too. Tommy is a Cherokee on a reservation who wants nothing to do with said reservation, and he wants out. Sadly, his girlfriend and grandfather do not. Then, aliens invade and Tommy must save everyone, and eventually Earth. As good as this game is, it's sad to see it didn't get a sequel, or at least more recognition. It got swept under the rug, like all the modern shooters that dare to offer personality and a protagonist other than silent, nameless, soldier 2047. The game is good, and since you can pick it up for just a bit more than a buck, you're saving yourself money on a game that's worth a darn. If you're into shooters, check it out. Final note: THE POSSESSED CHILDREN FIGHTS ARE REALLY SCARY FOR A GAME THAT'S NOT A HORROR GAME!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good for 99 cents Strengths -Puzzles are engaging and fun. -Guns are creative. -Enemies are at a good level of difficulty on normal mode. -Interesting back story when it is fed to you. -The end was fulfilling. I'm not talking about the very end when you go through a portal. -The graphics are adequate for its time. Weaknesses -Not enough dialogue to lure me in a quarter of the way through in story mode, but it makes it up in the two thirds through the game. -The very end of the game was disappointing because it said to be continued. Guess what for now Prey 2 is in the development abyss. I wouldn't have put it as a weakness if they went through with releasing Prey 2. - Glitchy at times. If you didn't save, o well. Make sure to save a lot because the beginning is kind of glitchy so you can move forward. If this wasn't a problem I would rate this game 8 out of 10.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Prey - Not Your Average Shooter Prey is not your average shooter. This game begins on a Cherokee reservation, which is something I've never experienced in a video game before. In light of this intriguing setting, the main character's internal conflict develops from this. Tommy wants to leave the reservation, but his girlfriend refuses. Tommy also feels dissonance with his culture and heritage. He doesn't believe the myths and traditions of the Cherokee lifestyle and constantly denies his grandfather's spiritual wisdom. Abruptly, however, an alien ship abducts the three characters, which is pretty cheesy in my opinion. BUT it's the gameplay that saved it for me. The gameplay feels pretty smooth, but takes a little bit to get used to. One cool feature in the game is the spirit walk where Tommy can use power from his ancestors' spirits to perform mystical acts, like passing through barriers and so forth and so on. The graphics are above decent for a 2006 release, and the sound and other features are great, too. I would recommend this game to anyone looking for an FPS that isn't the typical military or space cowboy theme, if you get what I mean. Certainly a great addition to my Xbox games, great replay-ability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gameseeker gives his review on "Prey" I bought this game because I needed something to stall me until Call of Duty: Ghosts was released. I stumbled upon an epic game full of emotion, action, and adventure. The graphics are not INCREDIBLY bad since they are from 2006. The audio is amazing, the pulsing noise emitting from a deadly alien creature is very realistic. The storyline is very good with plenty of scenes that make you want to replay them again and again. Prey is a masterpiece with only one flaw: the graphics. If the graphics were sharper than the game would have scored a perfect ten AND be placed on my honorable mentions list. I suggest you get this game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a weird dream if ur into native american things, or u just want something where ur abducted by aliens and have to take ur revenge on them, then this is a good game for u. although graphics are dissappointing, and the storyline is a bit weird. there is a few gross parts, and the shape of enemys look very weird. its a good shooter for fighting aliens though i must say.
