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.Read more ›
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).Read more ›
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.
