While it's hard to justify waiting over ten years for a game, Prey delivers what people wanted, and much more. The game is undeniably fantastic, and is geared up to battle other upcoming FPS games for the best of the year. The game is well put together... everything is great. The sound, the graphics and more importantly.. the gameplay. The weapons in Prey are unlike any you have seen in any other FPS game. While most will mimic similar weapons in other games, they look nothing similar. Your most 'normal' weapon is your pistol, which doubles as a sniper rifle. Others include bomb spiders, an energy gun, rocket launcher and a shotgun that is incredibly powerful. The energy gun is one of the most interesting though. Occasionally you will find a pod that houses a certain element, which you can suck into the gun. There are a total of four elements that I recall, and all of them have devastating power
The storyline -could- be a bit better, because it still follows the simple 'guy out to save the world' scheme, although they did make it more interesting than some other games out there.Human Head has had a long time to perfectly plan out the game, and it shows.But overall,this game had could have been better if innovative features like Spiritwalking and Deathwalking were implemented better.
The Good: Totally polished feel, bug free, killer graphics, fun weapons, good audio, portals, gravity tricks, clever puzzles
The Bad: Pretty short single player, very basic multiplayer,underwhelming singleplayer combat,Short,,Story gets a little hasty toward the end,Only two multiplayer modes,Spiritwalking is unnecessary and Deathwalking is cheap
