In Prey®, you awaken aboard Talos I, a space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032. You are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever – but things have gone terribly wrong. The space station has been overrun by hostile aliens and you are now being hunted. As you dig into the dark secrets of Talos I and your own past, you must survive using the tools found on the station, your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities to defeat the Typhon alien threat. The fate of the Talos I and everyone aboard is in your hands.

Play Your Way
Gain alien abilities to develop a distinct combination of powers and upgrade your unique skills. Craft increasingly useful items with the blueprints, gadgets and tools on board the station to overcome dangerous obstacles in your way. Survive unprecedented threats with your wits and ability to improvise.
This first person sci-fi shooter from Bethesda has all the elements of the System Shock games, with a touch of Alien Isolation and dabble of Dishonored.
After playing through the first hour of the game, I was gripped by the immersive story and the impending sense of dread that Prey teased out of me as I wandered fearfully around Talos 1. Taking on the role of Morgan Yu, you’re quickly swept into a story of deceit, secrets and an enemy that is wonderfully clever and instantly difficult to fight against.
The Prey story is emitted to us through smart interactions and glorious in game technology, which had me guessing and reassessing my thoughts of the space station that I wake to find myself stranded on. Without giving too much away, Prey will lull you into a false sense of security and quickly destroy your illusions that Morgan Yu has so defiantly resisted.
The weaponry and special skills that you enquire along the way take me back to the Bioshock plasmids and the importance of switching between power abilities and your weapon set. I can’t wait to jump back into the role of Morgan Yu in May and unearth the deadly secrets of Talos 1 and the TranStar Corporation.

Prey has elements that are 9/10 or better and other parts that are 4/10 or worse. It has a solid story, good atmosphere and ambience, and only crashed once. I couldn't stand the repetitive traveling in zones and I really didn't enjoy the combat. I would've much preferred a 6 hour game with the story compacted in there. Honestly, I would've preferred Prey as a walking simulator - and I'm someone who loves Deus Ex and Dishonored and enjoyed Bioshock, but I was just waiting on this game to end the last half or more. The stealth options are not anywhere near what Dishonored or Deus Ex bring.
I picked this up expecting to have a bit of fun, nothing more. I ended up really enjoying the great gameplay, excellent upgrade mechanics and surprisingly fun story. I really can't fault this in any way. If you enjoy Bioshock, Half Life and any shooter like that then this is worth picking up. Pick it up on PC though, the load times on console are unbearable. This becomes a big deal as each 'area' loads independently and when you want to move around quickly or explore waiting for minutes for each area to load can really try your patience.
The beginning of the game is pretty hard and was a bit frustrating but if you stick through it you're rewarded with a surprisingly fun experience. The game has an interesting story and setting, which is a breath of fresh air since most FPS these days lack creativity and originality. While I wouldn't say its the most original game (it borrows a lot from Bioshock and the Dishonored series) it still delivers a fun engaging experience thats similar enough to those games to enjoy but different enough to be its own thing as well. Main point is if you enjoyed Bioshock Infinite and any of the Dishonored games, you'll definitely enjoy this one too.
Prey is a good game in terms of graphics. Arkane Studios team seems managed to use Unreal Engine well and has succeeded to get good graphics out of it. Although the game does not have enormous environments, and most of the time you are not dealing with very detailed and complex models, but yet graphics is still fairly commendable. Of course, it can not be compared to the best of the market games of 2017 but Prey can be called a Fair game! When I compare the experience of Prey with my experience of the awesome Dishonored games, I could not see at all the freedom of gameplay as I had in Dishonored in this game. Honestly I had too much expectations of this game and it kinda disappointed me somehow but it maybe called a fun and enjoyable game but it wasn't for me in every aspect at least!
Prey is a fresh take on the survival horror genre. It borrows a lot from System Shock and Bioshock but introduces plenty of new features and a variety of unique enemies to fight. Prey takes place on a space station far from Earth where contact and study of extraterrestrial beings has gone horribly wrong. The player takes the role of Morgan Yu as he/she treks through the station completing missions in order to save his/her crew and escape. It's a superb game with a brilliant atmosphere, twisting story, interesting new weapons, unique enemies, and fantastic abilities. I couldn't put this game down. It had a fair amount of jump scares, creepiness, combat, and stealth all wrapped up in a compelling and well-written story. Do yourself a favor and pick it up soon. 10/10
