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.

This is one of the most polished and most interesting FPS games I have played in many years. I'm still in the first 3rd of the game apparently after 15 hours. Arkane Studios, while possessing a rather strong track record, I wasn't sure if Prey would hold up to System Shock 2 or even be close after seeing all the comparisons drawn to it. After playing it however, I was in shock (no pun intended) at how it managed to not only exceeded my expectations, but it turned out to be one of my favorite games of the past few years. If you love System Shock 2, you owe it to yourself to play this masterpiece. I recommend Prey 100% and 10/10 So Just GO and Get this game NOW!
Prey is a science fiction game that introduces us into a recurring battle against aliens in a space station. This game can be played thanks to the fascinating sci-fi elements and the engagement story of the game itself, but at the same time Prey has the ability to keep you out of the game because of the weak system of struggles and imbalance. If you want a fascinating science fiction game, Prey is a very good game, but if you're looking for a shooter game, Prey will disappoint you.
Prey is without a doubt a GOTY nominee for me already. Not since the likes of the Bioshock Trilogy, Mad Max, Assassin's Creed 2, Fallout New Vegas (to name a few) have I been so intrigued to keep playing and learn about a game. First off I expected this game to be a more heavy on the horror side, something I wasn't too keen on really, but honesty after an hour - maybe less, you'll realize that horror is more so a background aspect to the game, sure you'll get a few jump scares every once in a while, but these are mostly due to the Mimics. The Mimics can change into any object, so you got to keep aware of you're surroundings, because you never know when they could appear. This aspect to the game is brilliant, and is also really unique compared to the ideas that are seen in most recent games. Not only that but you too can gain abilities to mimics objects as well. If this game does anything well, it is that it never restricts players to one path. Just like the Dishonored games, you can take multiple paths. Will you go guns blazing through a room, killing the Phantoms and Mimics carelessly? Or Will you use the glue gun to make a pathway to a vent just above you and sneak past them in the vent? It's so great to have this freedom given to us. And the glue gun, by god the glue gun is quite possibly one of the most creative weapons in gaming today, you can make your own path with it, and you can pretty much freeze enemies with it temporarily, it's not a gun that you kill with, and that's a good thing. The audio is brilliant, it's what makes moments tense, the music will be calm one moment, but when near enemies it'll become more tense, you become more aware about your surroundings. And when a enemy spots you the music will notify you subtly, and when they lose you, it'll play another sound to notify you. That's only a little bit of the music does, but it's great and helpful. And the soundtrack is also awesome, it really suits it's theme, the feeling that you are alone, you are in space, and that nothing is safe, it's definitely one of the superior soundtracks made in recent memory. As for the PC Port, it's amazing. I didn't experience any crashes, and on Ultra graphics using a GTX 980, i7 4790k and 16GB RAM, I had a steady 60+FPS. I didn't notice any FPS drops throughout playing the game, so as a PC Port this game also excels. Overall the game is one of the greatest games made in recent memory, it certainly deserves to be compared to the likes of Bioshock and System Shock and it's easy to see that this game has had some inspiration from those games. It's replayable as all heck, it's definitely intriguing, and it's most certainly a GOTY contender for me.
I am not going to go into HUGE detail, but here we go. Story: The way the story was laid out was awesome. Not to give to much away, the twist in the beginning hooked me, even though I saw it coming, and the end game... Let me just say, STAY THROUGH THE CREDITS! It's worth it :D GamePlay: It's fairly normal Third Person Shooter when it comes to 'Normal' armaments. The abilities, and such are excellent in many ways. The number of options to upgrade, and how each choice effects you makes the gameplay feel real. Design:The 'levels' are amazing. they are intricate, and gorgeous in a strange way. The whole world (I only reentered a small number of areas my whole first playthrough.) honestly, the world is very big, and it feels completely open world. On a personnel note, I did LOVE how the fabrication, and deconstruction worked. It was very, cool just how much detail went into it. TL:DR K guess I lied. I went into detail. So here it is. The game stunned me. I expected an AMAZING game, I got better. And will gladly buy any DLC, or new games in this series.
Prey surprised me by how much of it's influences it wears on it's sleeve. It's like bioshock and system shock combined with half like. It's really fun and challenging to play. Don't let the start fool you into thinking this game is simple or aimless or even too easy the start may be slow but after the first hour thing really pick up after the alien abilities you gain. The game takes place on a space station research facility called Talos one and even though the visuals are not that great most of the times in my opinion but the design and look of the environment make up for this there are lots of thing everywhere it really shines in it's level design. you should definitely try the game out if you haven't yet it's definitely a great experience.
