I personally like Prey. Sure, itīs no 90% Game, but itīs pretty entertaining, plus, it canīt frustrate you since you canīt die. A nice game for the 15 or 10 bucks it costs right now. Just donīt give a damn about the obviously unfinished and hurried storyline in the game.

This game's plot was crazy...but somehow worked in the game. I played this game for a while, and I found it frustrating to leave my body for so long, and so often. The targeting system was a bit glitchy on my computer, but I managed to work around that. The not being able to die thing really got on my nerves, mainly because it is never explained, but mostly because it ruins the game's feel for urgency. The aliens are really tough and you need to be good to kill them, not invincible.
Had they put in a feature that made you have to kill a certain number of wraiths, or complete a puzzle, to restart outside your body at the beginning of the level. And have spiritual enemies that attack you, until you returned to your body. And if you died here, you'd have to restart the level.
That would have improved the game a bit, maybe not perfect, but better than the current ordeal.

This game gave me more headaches then any game before it.....the screen was constantly busy, the colors clashed ALL THE TIME, and the puzzles just plain pissed me off....

It had a good plot idea. It was pretty retarded how you couldn't die, though. But it did introduce me to Coast to Coast AM.

prey wasnt that bad of a game, it wasnt the best game in the world, but there are worse games than it! it was a fun little romp, but i would never buy it for Ģ40 ($80 american... thats right kids, thats how much games cost in the uk)
My main problem with it was the lag and the achievements. I got it for the 360 and after i finished the game, i went on to take on the multiplayer, and thats when the headaches started. trying to find a game was terrible, the lag was stupid, and the achievements were so stupid to get, you would end up with a great big bushy beard when u finaly got them. when will companys learn that achievements are supposed to be fun, not work!

I haven't played it, but I heard towards the end of the game some ghost tells you to go to some temple of trials, then when you actually get there that ghost says "Nevermind, go back and fight the aliens."

I disliked Prey. It just seemed to throw me for a loop after I bought it from the bargain bin. A game with good graphics, but plays like a fps from 10 years ago? I just couldn't comprehend it.

Believe it or not, Prey had the Portals before the game "Portal".

Duke Nukem 3D is the epitome of all 3D Realms games, in my opinion. You should do a bit on that, and Shadow Warrior! There is another game, similar to Duke and SW as well, called Blood that you also should try if you can get your hands on it.
