    Seems promising, but a little dull and a slow to start.

    The graphics are good but the story line is kinda slow and gets boring after a while.

    This game was cheap and now I know why. It's a very boring game.

    I bought this game because it was getting pretty good critic reviews but, for the life of me, I am not sure why. The story is very cool and intriguing and that is the only thing that kept me playing to the very end. However, moving around on the space station becomes tedious at some point. Also, I switched to playing on "easy" mode because I was getting frustrated with frequently dying. This did very little to actually reduce the difficulty. I still found myself dying frequently, even when facing "easy" enemies.

    Game feels like half-life. Good storyline. Scrounging around to find stuff is a bit tedious at times.

    This game starts interesting but after the first 2 hours, for me, became rather boring. Graphics are also below average.

    This game is pretty awesome for game enthusiast. But if you're more of simple gamer, then I would recommend moving past this game. This game, comes with the Pre-order content, but thats about as much of a bonus you have. Mechanics are awesome and story is intriguing but this is a pretty much sandbox-esque dead space, except without the graphic content.

    It was a rather boring game, the aliens were boring and uninteresting. They were kinda spooky at first then I got tired of them. I played for a few hours and haven't played it since. In my opinion, don't waste your money buying into the hype.

    At first, it felt like bioshock to me. Which I love the bioshock games. But, after awhile the game play felted a bit boring. Perhaps it lack more to the story of what is happening? Still, rather a good game. Choose to stay more human or inject your self with alien abilities. To kill what humans are alive or not. There is usually more than one way to enter an area if you can find it. And having the alien abilities will help with this. Weapons are upgradable as well as your abilities to aid you on your journey. Graphics are good and control setup is OK.

    There was a certain level of disappointment by many when this new Prey was announced and confirmed to not connect to the original franchise. But, with that in mind, Arkane has proven with its Dishonored series that they have an impressive vision and unique handle on first person fare. They've also continued to commit to this game with new DLC just recently released, so they haven't allowed any sort of consumer hesitancy prevent them from continued support. The enemies have a bit of lackluster diversity in their alien form, but the fact that many can shapeshift to hide in plain sight will keep you on your toes and paying attention to the action. Allowing yourself to focus on one in a group of three will almost certainly guarantee the others will transform into everyday objects out of sight and get the drop on you the moment you go looking for them. @@@@@@@@ Unless you get an augment that allows you to scan objects). And, much like the Deus Ex series, you'll have some hard choices to make, largely on how you want to play. You'll never collect enough augments to MAX every category, so careful planning will be needed when you head into the game, and multiple playthroughs if you want to see how different each playstyle can be. If you enjoyed Deus Ex's spin on FPS with augmented abilities, Arkane's beautiful art style, and an enjoyable story-driven campaign full of choices, don't allow the lack of "true Prey" dissuade you any longer, now that the price has dropped significantly. Grab this reboot and take the time to enjoy this new vision.

    Overall this is a pretty fantastic game. If you liked any of the Bioshock games, this game will feel familiar. The FPS combat is smooth, and the crafting/power upgrade aspects of the game allow you to play however you want. The overall story is linear, but there are some choices you can make to change how you get to the end. The story seems simple on the surface, but to really get into it you need to explore the environment and do a lot of in-game reading and listening to recorded messages, which may not appeal to everyone. It's not necessary for the enjoyment of Prey, however. The game can seem tough early on in normal mode, but can quickly become quite easy as you gather resources and gain powers. Some people may not like this, but you can always increase the difficulty if you want a challenge. It's great for those who want to feel powerful and unstoppable, though. Some issues I had with the PS4 version of Prey were some pretty major frame rate issues that occurred after a specific point in the story, about halfway through. I had to restart the game several times and experienced a couple crashes before I could finally make it to an exit from the area. After I loaded in a new location frame rate when back to normal. Thankfully it did, because if it had stayed like that the game would have been unplayable. I believe this issue has since been patched by the developer. A second issue I've had is that the loading screens are quite long on PS4. This wouldn't be too much of an issue except for the fact that the game constantly has you going back and forth between sections of the space station you are on. The loading screens become very tedious after a while. Despite a few flaws, the overall game is very good and I hope to see a sequel or some DLC soon. It's a great new universe to explore and I hope there will be more to dive in to in the future.
