    A great modern day System Shock

    Prey has nothing to do with the 2006 game or the cancelled Prey 2 whatsoever, so don't go in expecting those. What we have here is an exploration based game that harkens back to titles like System Shock and Deus Ex. So far it's been really good, it's got great atmosphere and an interesting story so far. Only complaints I have so far is that it gets randomly difficult at certain points, and the enemies get repetitive. It's a very solid game. If you enjoy games like Deus Ex and System Shock, you'll enjoy this one.

    Picked this up on PC even though the lack of marketing and hype on the game made me wary. Within the first hour I was hooked. The reviews that say this feels like a hybrid of System Shock, Bioshock, Deadspace and Dishonored are right on. Some quick twitch action, but punctuated with periods of exploration, story building and lore recovery. Note that an incoming patch is supposed to fix some late game problems, but that isn't enough for me to reduce the rating on the game.

    Never got a chance to see how it was. You can't get it through their digital library, so BB sets you up with Steam...which doesn't let the product download. BB cust service hangs up on you, re directs to another department,never really helps you. I only called them 16 times, mostly got hung up on. DO NOT BUY from this company

    If you like games like System Shock, Bioshock, Dishonored, Deus Ex, etc. you will most likely like this game. Very surprised just how good it is. Only complaint is that you start out quite weak but by roughly 75% of the way through the story you've amassed so many healing items, upgrades, and perks, you're practically invincible. But it's a fantastic feeling of progression.

    Prey is a great sci-fi experience.

    My personal experience with Prey has left me wanting to play more of it. I generally enjoyed the game so far. I enjoyed the science fiction elements of the story, setting, as well as the interactive parts of the game. To sum up Prey, I would consider this a sci-fi heavy version of Bioshock as far as its gameplay mechanics. The story is very much 1900s sci-fi.

    Before release I ignored this game, imagining it to be another reboot that nobody ever wanted. It's not in the least bit and more of a spiritual sequel to System Shock 2: a modern horror FPS/RPG hybrid, or a spooky Deus-Ex for those unfamiliar with the series. For the best experience, do not play this on easy or normal.

    This game is a masterfully done tribute of late 90's-early 2000's fps rpgs. This game works so well that you can accurately press a button with a foam dart from 20 feet away after climbing stairs you made of gloo with ammo you made out of a vending machine, FROM a vending machine.

    I've been a long time PC gamer, so I tend to buy the PC vercions of games when they come out just to help out the numbers a bit. Typically I'm very disappointed by what I get, but not with Prey! So far this is an amazing PC port of a great spiritual successor to both System Shock 2 and Bioshock. Very highly recommended
