Product Description

Prey is the story of Tommy, who is a down-on-his-luck garage mechanic, stuck in the middle on who-knows-where on some forgotten reservation, where Native Americans are tucked away out of sight, out of mind. And then the unthinkable has happend! Earth becomes prey to the galaxy's largest predator, a space bound Texas-sized alien. Aliens turned Tommy's world upside down. Now he's about to return the favor.

From the Manufacturer

Tommy is a Cherokee garage mechanic who denies his past and is uncertain about his future. His world comes to a halt when he and his people are abducted to a menacing mothership orbiting Earth. Tommy taps his latent Cherokee spiritual powers to save himself, his girlfriend, and the planet.

Prey is a first-person shooter in which players enter a living spaceship which enslaves alien races and devours humans for lunch. Built on a heavily modded version of the Doom 3 engine, features include wall walking, gravity flipping, and intense single- and multi-player gameplay.

Each year, I wait for something to come out to blow me away. FEAR was the last one that I actually could not get enough of. Now PREY appears, and WHOA, what a ride. Fantastic visuals (I mean FANTASTIC). Great dynamics in control of the characters, cool weapons, the anti gravity stuff and portals are mentioned quite a bit by most who comment on this game, but they are just part of the whole thing.

The voice acting is almost uniformly great (with the exception of Jen sometimes), and the story is mostly original, save the overall plot, which we've seen a zillion times before. But the characters are new to the genre, (nope, no super human marines, or master gunfighters) and treats the traditions of the cherokee with respect and dignity.

There are some moments where it feels like some other games, an occasional dopey boss battle, and too many elevators, but wow, the overall pace, artwork, character control, and AWESOME MUSIC makes it the most movie like video game I've EVER played. Yes, even more than Half Life 2. The health regeneration is a little annoying at first, but then you learn to appreciate it somewhat, as it is less disruptive than having to go back 2 or 3 saves and start over.

One more comment on the music. I was amazed at how cinematic it was. I felt like I was in a live action movie sometimes. Just awesome.

My library of PC games numbers over 100, and I've played them all. But this one is in a class by itself. Yes, its somewhat short, but the work that went into it was intense.

I would ignore most of the adolescents that talk about the "doom 3 engine" (heck most don't even know what it means, they are just repeating some noise they saw on some forum somewhere).

Graphics. Not bad. Music. GREAT. You get samples from the Grateful Dead, Judas Priest, Ozzy Ozbourne and SO many more. Physics? So real it just *may* make you a little queasy at first. Story line? Totally UNREAL. The storyline consists of Indian folklore. This is not your typical shooter in most ways. Sure, you have weapons, sure you blow a lot of crap up. But, that's where the similarities begin and end. There is so much more richness to the environment. There is so much more challenge here than is in most FPS games. So, to the reviewer who poked fun at us gamers J. Jiminez (below), the reason we get so excited about the latest game and the latest technology is very much similar to the reason why you feel the need to be so judgemental and pompous. We just can't help it. It makes us feel good. Hopefully his review hasn't been deleted. Otherwise this whole rant will look rather foolish.

Anyway, this program runs VERY well. It takes up about 1.5 gig in drive space. Very little for such a fully loaded game. It does come on a few CD-rom discs. It can be a little complicated for the run0and0gun types. A little like Deus Ex meets Aliens VS. Predator. You get to walk on the walls and ceiling a lot. This truly is a special program that deserves to get a LOT of attention.

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 ›

Prey is a pretty good first-person shooter. It looks good, has some interesting features and is mostly fun to play. It is a pure shooter, you run around by yourself and shoot everything that moves. You can't hurt anything you aren't supposed to. You can't get to places you aren't supposed to or even go directions you are not supposed to. The weapons are the standard ones: gun, machine gun, grenade, rocket launcher, etc. They have been dressed up in alien clothes but they are the familiar guns you are used to. If you liked Doom, Quake, Fear, etc. you will feel right at home and enjoy this one. FYI - I didn't play the multi-player at all, just the single player game.

It has several gimmicks, one is the native American thing which comes across pretty goofy, its really just an excuse to give you special powers. Hey, in Doom you were half-badguy and got special powers, in Fear you were the brother and got powers, In Pariah you were infected with the virus and got special powers, in this one you are a Native American and get powers. I found the powers themselves pretty useless and obvious. The spirit walk thing was kind of fun but got so obvious and tedious after a while. Stuck on a ledge? You can be sure there is an invisible spirit bridge (why?) that will lead you to the switch. There is a bow and arrow you can shoot while in spirit form but I never did, there didn't deem to be any point.

Other features of the game are the "walk on walls" and "portals". Both were fun but nothing standout. The walk-on-walls thing was primarily a problem solver. Can't get over the fence? you can bet there is a way to flip gravity so you can walk on the ceiling and then flip back. The portals are magic doors that open in thin air and allow you or enemies to walk through.
