Those of you who followed the first person shooter genre back in 1998 probably vaguely remember a game called Prey that was in development at 3D Realms. The game featured a Native American theme and a unique portal technology that allows enemies to appear out of thin air among other things. Then the game suddenly disappeared for years only to recently resurface. This new game, developed by Human Head Studios, features many of the original ideas from 1998 as well as a state-of-the-art graphics engine and fierce combat. The amount of hype surrounding the game when it was shown at E3 was enormous. Luckily, Prey manages to deliver a solid and compelling first person shooter experience.

Prey opens with the main character of the game, a Native American named Tommy, talking to himself in a bathroom mirror. He wants to take his girlfriend and leave the Indian reservation. She on the other hand doesn't want to leave. While trying to talk her into leaving, his girlfriend and his grandfather are sucked up into an alien ship. Tommy manages to get free and then sets out to rescue his girlfriend. Of course along the way he will end up saving the world.

The plot in the game is actually pretty solid. The game starts out pretty intense and things rapidly escalate and get pretty desperate. It also does a pretty good job of explaining why you of all people are the one who has been chosen to save the world. While the Native American influences are not a major part of the gameplay, it is an interesting and recurring theme in the storyline. The last few levels in the game make up one of the most intense climaxes to any first person shooter in recent memory.

I loved Prey - the atmosphere, the art direction, the mood... it was all bang-on perfect. I love games that offer an excellent experience, as opposed to just more shooting bad guys. Prey had a story to tell, and it did it well while drawing you into it's world and it's mythos. That said, this is easily the WORST Collector's Edition I have ever had the misfortune to purchase. The metal tin is nice, and the figurines are interesting (if altogether useless)... but the big two sell points are the art book and the soundtrack. I've already said the art direction in the game is fantastic, and I love to get a peek at the concept art that goes into making the game world come alive. Unfortunately, the art is all spoiled by censorship boxes (yes, those little square boxes) that cover "offensive" bits of sketches and paintings. Mind you, this is a Mature game with all those anatomical bits readily present on the hideous and horrifying aliens. There is nothing explicit here, and the game isn't censored... so why ruin an otherwise excellent collection of art?

The second big problem is far worse than the first. Although the game is advertised as coming with a soundtrack (and what a fantastic soundtrack it is, too) - there is absolutely no CD. In fact, it's not even an iTunes coupon. What you get is a slip of paper with a web address and a code. Before you can listen to your soundtrack, you have to download and install a special music player. The music will only play with this special software. It's not MP3 format, and you can't put it on any kind of mobile music device (like an iPod or PSP).

Space portals, spirit walking, walking up walls, and coming back from the dead may all seem "gimmicky", but they are gimmicks that work!

Any gamer can tell you how easy it is to lose track of time. In any other shooter, when you die, you are forced to pick up at your last save spot - that could have been minutes ago!

But now you simply shoot for health and power in the spirit realm and come back where you left off. Never played a game that continues even when you die! The autosave is a big help too. It even loaded the "save file" from the demo version. So, I was able to continue playing without starting over. Awesome!

I liked the conveinence of the DVD version because it is a single disc, and installs faster due to better transfer rates than CD. The collector's tin has a nicely aged look, and two cool pewter figurines inside. The "Art of Prey" book is a leather-type covered book with B&W and full color artwork. A nice plus for the manual which is very easy to understand.

While you will need a powerful computer and graphics card to maximize the visual feasts, there is enough to creep you out during game play. Who ever thought the spirits of a little girl would cause such angst!

I have even taken to playing the death matches online, something I NEVER used to do.

Prey is a bona-fide 5 star game. Play it soon because everyone is going to be raving about it. The SUMMER BLASTER for 2006 is HERE! Basically it is Turok meets Doom 3 on steroids. If you like first person shooters (fps), then getting Prey is probably the next best move you will make next to owning Half-Life 2: Episode 1 and F.E.A.R. The future of fps in space has not outlived its lifespan. If you liked Doom 3, which was the last good adrenaline pumping monster mash on Mars, then you will love Prey. Prey is back to basics again, whopping up the graphics considerably, brilliant lighting effects and a frightening story to boot that isn't afraid to have lots of gore and shocks around the corner. It has a certain feel of HALO about it too with its alien-type weapons. You play an Indian who has been beamed up off his reserve into a spaceship where the aliens are eating up the humans. Prey has awesome in-game action sequences and is quite shocking for the sum of its fiendish parts. You have an old Indian trick out-of-body-experience (OBE) which helps you to reach areas in the rooms you can't normally get to. The rooms also rotate when you shoot switches which offers various level puzzles to get through. Most of the time you totally loose your orientation which makes the play even more fun, especially when portals start opening after room rotations. Duke Nukem lovers will also enjoy the fun on display. An alien's severed hand to open doors is a nice touch. Art Bell's radio talk-show of the aliens invasion is broadcast at various junctions in the game. You don't die either. Well you do, but you are given unlimited chances to regenerate your blue or red health by shooting at blue or red birds in the land of your ancestors. It is a great idea and works. The Boss fights are massive.Read more ›
