You awaken aboard Talos I, a space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032. You are the key subject in an experiment meant to change 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 delve into the dark secrets of Talos I and your own past, you have to survive using the tools found on the station, your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities.
Prey might not be the prettiest game, but it's among the most atmospheric. Arkane Studios has proven itself time and time again to be comprised of world-class world builders. Prey is no different. If you're a fan of Dead Space, Deus Ex, or Bioshock, you simply have to buy this game.
Prey starts strong, then gets better and better as its compelling narrative gradually unfolds, and new terrors stalk the confines of Talos I. A sci-fi survival masterclass, Prey is quite simply sublime.
Prey expertly blends a compelling narrative with open level design, a fear-inducing mechanic and near-unparalleled player freedom to deliver an appealing, atmospheric and aesthetically pleasing chunk of sci-fi that will get sink its spiky teeth into you and never let go.
Prey is a one of a kind experience which has a huge world, a thrilling story and very rich content. It would be most appealing to fans of science fiction shooters.
Prey has so much gameplay and objectives to accomplish it takes quite a long time to see what all the game has to offer if you choose to do everything. I didn't do every side mission and the game took me around 37 hours to complete. The game is tense and addicting throughout the entire campaign and it's a joy to play. Despite a few shortcoming, it's definitely one of the best games I have played so far this year and I highly recommend it if you're a fan of first person shooter RPGs such as Deus Ex or BioShock.
The aliens don't quite cut it, but Prey offers one of gaming's best settings in years. [July 2017, p.73]
Prey really wants to be the strange science fiction cousin to Dishonored, with varied combat and deep world building. Arkane Studios has really succeeded with the latter. It's easy to tolerate the lackluster combat when Talos 1 is such a fascinating place to visit.
