Very interesting story
The story for this game is very good and interesting. The graphics hold up well for being such and old game and there are some cool game play mechanics that work well. This is definitely a game that any shooter fan should check out.
Picked this one up used and cheap - my idea of the perfect game. Once I got a little ways in, I started enjoying it more. I'm new to Xbox and wanted something fairly simple control-wise. This game is rather dark, in mood and in lighting, and the handy cigarette lighter proves quite useful a few times. The weapons are interesting, being mostly biologic, as are some of the enemy and their weapons platforms. I'm a tad claustrophobic and found myself cringing a couple times when in (virtual) dark, cramped spaces. I also noticed I kept turning my head in odd directions as the very environment I worked through kept spinning and tumbling around. Gravity shifts point of reference often, with powered walkways and ceiling and floor swaps. Portals open throughout the game, spewing enemy and providing access to disconnected locations. For me, the most fun came from looking around this weird universe and determing where to go next. All in all, an enjoyable game.
The slow summer months have made me thirsty for a good new game to play, but my wallet was very slim unfortunately, then I saw this game, looked okay at first. But when I stuck it in my console, it blew me away, I wasn't expecting anything good for such a cheap bargain, but I was mistaken. Prey's storyline isn't necessarily Top Hollywood material, but its good enough to keep you captivated. The graphics are very nice looking on a regular tv or an expensive one. And there are enough options and downloadable content to keep you occupied for a while. The campaign is short and sweet, and I like it like that. The sound is also great, but the guns do lack a certain punch, since all the guns in the game are alien-based, I can sort of forgive them for not blowing up your speakers when you pull the trigger, like most fps games. The multiplayer is fun, but a little Laggy. All in all, this game is well worth the price.
Just like Duke Nukem...
Prey is about you playing as a Cherokkee named Tommy,his journey is to save his girlfriend Jen from the invading Aliens.This game is unique in many ways.Examples:Tommy uses supernatural powers to keep himself alive and to go through various obstacles.You also go through portals into other parts of the spaceship.The guns are also unique because half the guns are alive.The game is only 1 player but online is enabled.I can't say if online is good or not cause I never tried it before.Also,the enemies and monsters are fun to kill,and looking at weird looking creatures are also interesting.I never finished the game yet but I think there is about 22 levels.When I first played this game I thought it was really imaginitive.Like how the guns are alive and the fact that the aliens turn people into monsters,basically Im saying this game is cool.So when you get this game I hope you enjoy it.
Oldschool in a brilliant way
This game has a definite olschool shooter, 90's video game feel, but that's because it's development began in the 90's. The gameplay is fun and creative. The portal abilities are awesome, as are the abilities to walk on walls and ceilings whilst having a shootout with aliens. Epic. The graphics aren't like today's, but it is a 2006 video game. But the graphics are nice. If you are looking for a fun, action packed sci fi shooter with cool graphics and creative gameplay, then Prey, for just $2.99, is a heck of a deal. Buy it. Especially if you are a fan of Duke Nukem or BioShock.
Great Game for the Price
I picked the game up dirt cheap not expecting much, but to my surprise I actually got a good shooter with a very original story line. Graphics arent bad considering and the portal and gravity technology is great. I have not had a chance yet to play Multiplayer but its well worth picking up just for the single player- not to mention you get achievements every 5-15 minutes of play. New weapons show up just as old ones begin to get too weak and boring and the spirt walk is a nice touch. If you are a fan of Portal and shooters then this game should suit you just fine. Not that you have a portal gun, it just requires a bit of thinking to solve some of the many puzzles in the game. The only down fall is that there are not too many different types enemys and skill level drops quite a bit after dying just once.
Great shooter with great features!
First off I would like to say this is a smooth ride all the way through. This is a great game with great quality, it has perfect graphics and it came out in 06! Its storyline is great! The game had me addicted from the beginnning-getting abducted by aliens while don't fear the reaper is on the radio(lol). The gameplay is great and its nice for a shooter to have puzzles every now and then, so gamers will actually use their brains! I highly recommend this game to gamers who like shooters and action. The only flaw in this game is the diffuculty, but just put it on hard and it will make it tougher. I have not played this on multiplayer yet- but I heard it is great! So, since this game is so awesome and its got a REALLY cheap price, you might as well give it a try(you won't be dissappointed)!
For $2.99 USD... Not bad at all.
I bought this game when it was about $3.99, which I believe it is now $2.99. I think for the price of the game, it is a great game. It is obviously outdated at this point, but the concept I thought was interesting and unique. And, the end had a pretty good twist, in my opinion. The graphics were good for the time, the sound is good, and the story is okay. I would not say the game has too much replay value considering that there is normal mode, which you have to complete to get to Cherokee mode (which some have disputed unlocked for them immediately). The multiplayer I thought was pretty cool, but as one could imagine, there are not many people playing this game, but the servers for it are still up and running! For only a couple of dollars, I'd say it's worth the entertainment you can get out of it. And I'm looking forward to Prey 2.
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.
