    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.

    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.

    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

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Not Prey 2, but still amazing

    I was one of the many who were depressed to learn that the original Prey sequel was cancelled. I still hope some day we get the Prey 2 that we all want, but the Prey we got is an amazing new Bethesda franchise by Arkane. For $19.99 + 20% off GCU with an included steelbook this game is well worth the purchase.

    This game is somewhere in between Deus Ex, Bioshock and Aliens. Well-made upgrade and crafting system. (Although you'll question if you should upgrade.) Interesting characters, tough enemies and combat scenarios. The free-space flight is also pretty fun. Bethesda does it again.

    Had to go to Portland ME to get this game

    This game came up on a super sale and I had best buy bucks to burn, but my local store had no copies, so I traveled across the country to get my hands on this awesome game. It's definitely a thriller, not for the faint of heart. But if you like this type of game it's worth the trip to Portland.

    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.

    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

    Initially I was not sure this would be my particular cup of tea. That being said, I played the demo and decided I liked it enough to gplay be the game a shot. Long story short? Well worth the purchase! The game has an interesting story and a wide range of ways almost every challenge in the game can be approached.

    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.

    Prey was everything I hoped it would be. It's a very well-made survival Sci-fi game, the controls are responsive and well laid out, the soundtrack is atmospheric and adds to the gameplay, and the enemies being able to mimic any object as to the tension. I can firmly say I recommended it.

    Prey feels like if Bioshock had a baby with Alien. The Mimics are creepy, the gameplay is open-ended with multiple paths to objectives, and I found the story to be legitimately fascinating as well. Definitely worth a play for fans of tense, claustrophobic horror.

    Haven't finished but it's been pretty good so far. Feels like Bioshock in space. Runs well on PC. Running 1440p at 60 fps with no problems. *Please note the retail copy does not install the game and directs you to Steam to download the game.

    According to steam I have spend over 70 hours with this game and I feel that I am not even half way through, but still going strong. It is very much worth your money. I love this type of game and hope very much for more of the same in the future.

    For fans of narrative driven shooters, Prey is totally worth checking out. The story grabbed my attention very early on. Combat is unique and the abilities that are unlocked are extremely fun to play. Runs great on my PC with a GTX 1060 graphics card.

    This game is great, the lack ammo and supplies makes this game very challenging and stressful at times but this game is good. Just plain'ol good. I wasn't really a fan of the Dishonored games but I really liked this game.

    Creepy space station fps with good replay ability. First run will be done only using human tech, with future runs playing with alien skills. 25 hours and still more to go, I am exploring the base and doing side quests.

    I have only just started playing, but enjoyed every minute of it. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because it has crashed twice. I have a 7700k processor and a GeForce 1080TI, so it is not from lack of hardware.
