I found the gameplay frustrating, it had some clever mechanics but at times I just did not get on with it. It was fairly tough due to the limited resources but I found towards the end it became overloaded with enemy creatures which at times took away from the suspense. It made me less inclined to try to complete more of the side quests which is unusual for me. The story began to fade and I felt little empathy towards any of the characters which is never great with a story. However, there were enough interesting ideas and moments of fun to warrant a play through.
Recommended, but it does have issues.
Apart from the technical issues present throughout the game, the game is very enjoyable and allows you a lot of freedom and provides a very satisfying non-linear, open-world experience. I have a few minor problems with quests not updating and mission / quest items disappearing which prevented me from completing a few side-missions, which can be fixed in a future patch / fix.
The game itself has a lot of jump-scares and has a tense and anxiety-inducing feel that provides for some really atmospheric gameplay. I look forward to patches / updates and the future, confirmed DLC (downloadable content) and hope the game is successful sales-wise because I am very interested in a sequel that developer's have plenty of opportunities to make great and even better.
I would definatly recommend this for anyone who likes SS2.
Genre: Open World RPG.
Morgan Yu is trapped abroad a space station filled with shape-shifting aliens with no memory of how he got there. Guided by a mysterious stranger & his former self, he must set the station's self-destruct before the aliens reach planet Earth.
- Excellent level design.
- Varied choice of gameplay.

- Intriguing storyline.
- Creative puzzle solving.
- A challenging game with a balanced level of difficulty.
- Main character Morgan Yu feels entirely passive in the storys narrative.

Prey is a first-person sci-fi action game from Arkane Studios, creators of the award-winning Dishonored series, you play as Morgan Yu - the first human enhanced with alien powers aboard the Talos 1 space station who wakes up with amnesia, with most of the stations crew dead or infected by strange symbiote created creatures who can mimic there surroundings.
The open world environment gives you the freedom of choice to play the game as you like. It’s a world that makes sense to the scenario which is intelligently designed as you search for any survivors & try to piece together the mysterious strange going's on within Telos 1.
The graphics are crisp, clear & look similar to Dishonoured, the soundtrack creates a tense atmosphere while the sound effects of hearing various creatures chanting nearby adds a eerie tone to the game as you feel truly isolated on this space station not knowing who or what is real.
The game play is solid & really holds the game together, there's so much to explore with different routes & choices that affect gameplay, crafting items, upgrading weapons & most importantly your character are a must as the difficulty level even on the easy/normal settings provide a strong challenge but not to the extent that it becomes too frustrating.
The story is well written & i felt myself completely drawn in & invested in the game as i delved deeper into exploring Talos 1, those of a nervous disposition be aware there are several jump scares throughout making for some intense moments but i wanted to know more about what's happened & discover who or what is responsible for the contagions outbreak & the final twist is a good one.
The DLC - Mooncrash is a 10 hour add on that is even better than the main game & packs enough content it's spooky, space-based environment that ties into the game's main storyline as you’ll have to live through the disaster through five different TranStar employees each with their own objectives & means of escape.
Minor quibbles? Only a couple, the earlier part of the game can be a tad frustrating battling symbiote creatures until you upgrade Morgans abilities & obtain stronger weapons to do more damage, the back tracking can get repetitive & the loading times are painfully slow which is annoying especially for a next gen console.
Overall, Prey is a challenging tense atmospheric part open world RPG that delivers a solid challenging 15 - 20 hour campaign + a additional 10 hours with the Mooncrash DLC, so if you enjoyed Bioshock & Dishonoured then I highly recommend giving Prey a play.
Gameplay is fluid, fast-paced, (rarely giving the player time to rest) and, being survival-horror, runs the usual protocols of abandoning your character in a world of chaos, facing overpowered enemies, and inviting you to actively scavenge, fight, solve puzzles, and complete quests, in order to build a skill tree which will better equip you against the overwhelming odds of the game's first half.
The New Game + feature is essential with PREY, as there is much you can easily miss on the first playthrough. Moreover, for those of us who are trophy hunters we get to experience the game in two survivor modes: we can finish the game relying on only human abilities, then finish a second game using the telekinetic and enhanced mental abilities of the alien hostiles. Great Fun.
I’m a big fan of the bioshock games and it felt like finally theres another one.
It had everything I like about the bioshock games but still felt fresh and unique. The station as a setting is great, it feels isolated and claustrophobic but also beautiful. The first half of the game is incredibly tense as you are far too weak to beat the phantoms and need to sneak and hide around them, the sound of a phantom nearby made me jump throughout the game because of this. Even as you get stronger you have to plan and pick your fights carefully but it’s so statisfying finally destroying that one typhon that kept catching/blocking me. The zero gravity parts were fun and challenging but I did manage to get lost several times which was a bit frustrating (I get lost in a lot of games so that’s probably just me). I liked uncovering the history of the station and it’s residents. I liked having moral choices. The main story is interesting, avoiding spoilers I guessed parts of it correctly but the full truth.
Has some great mechanics, the ability to mess around and find your own solutions rather than one telegraphed "Go Here" was a breath of fresh, as were seeking out all the hidden things (of which there are many)
Absolute cracker of a game and it's a real shame it was so overlooked on release, and already at a bargain bin price. Gave it a 4* as it's not quite as entertaining as its clear influence game, and parts of it were very mundane with very little happening at all, also I hated the fact I could see where enemies were coming from with markers above their head, really removed the tension of the game when you lacked the surprise of running into a new enemy as you knew they were coming long before they jump out.
I'd heartily recommend it to anyone that enjoyed any of the Half life games though, or anyone that likes a good FPS that hasn't got Cod or Battlefield in the title. At around a tenner it's a must buy for anyone's collection.
It reminded me of something akin to dead space and bio shock.
If you like games such as Dishonoured or Thief, then this game may appeal to you.
Plenty of exploring, collecting, crafting weapons, upgrades, gadgets, accessing new areas, interesting storylines, some aliens to kill.
Started on normal difficulty then dropped to easy just to make the alien monsters a bit less lethal ( easy is still a fair challenge )
Never been bored with this yet.
For under a tenner, very good value.
Oh and everything leads to more life like set walk in simulaters leading you in circles with no way point like the order that is a cramped barren and the first game that's crashed on a week's old, brought new PS4 console. What der fuc¡¿
