I grabbed this little gem this morning...

My first impression of this game was 'Booooring..' Confused Then things started to heat up a little and drop you into an alien ship.. After a few minutes I started thinking 'Ohh, another Doom clone.. YAWN!'.

Then all of a sudden things started getting interesting, very interesting. Smile Running up walls, killing aliens only to have then fly off and hit the ceiling, that turns out to be the floor. Razz

And the teleports are well smart, I love the way you reorientate when you jump through them, really spins you out. Razz And the part where your looking into a small glass cabinet with a planet in.. Well, i'll leave that bit blank for those that have not played it yet. Wink

As for weapons, well i've only messed with four.. Which are a pair of stilsons, an alien rifle with scope, heavy alien machine gun (with 2 known ammo types charged from freaky alien things on walls) and the Bow and Arrow when you go into errm out of body mode. Razz

Of the four I loved the Rifle for its semi fast fire rate and scope, the machine gun does some serious damage but with the red ammo type make sure nothing is close by otherwise you will get hurt! The other ammo type freezes enemy’s, quick to take small enemy’s out with.

As for the Stilsons, things get very very messy with these babys. Secondary fire is nasty too. Smile Now the Bow and Arrow are very effective, just make sure you grab the souls of the dead before they disappear. Wink

The comments coming from your character are also genuinely funny with comments like 'Now that was f***ed up... NOooo, this is f***ed up!'. Very Happy and watch out for all them 'MAAAADD!!' people freaking out. Reminds me of Quake 1, only loads better. Really puts you on edge. Smile

The programmers seem to have done a sweet job with this game and I can say without a doubt that I would go out and buy this game without a worry.

So a big thumbs up from me, although it does not take FPS's to the next level it for sure steps them up 2 or 3 notches. Smile

Think Descent vs Doom3 and you wont go far wrong. Only with much much better GFX, SFX and from what i've played of it.. Better gameplay. So very much worth the download, even though its a heavy 1GB+.


So whats your thoughts on Prey? Disagree with me? Is this the ground breaking game that will set the 360 apart or just another Doom Clone? Post your thoughts here.

Not a bad demo, looks like a cross between Halo & Doom 3 in my opinion, the abduction scene was awesome at the start of the game, the only weapon I was kickin ass with was a damn wrench,didn't really get a taste of all the other weapons. I managed to try the multiplayer version but the only person in the room was me, maybe I'll give it another shot later on.. Prey looks like a real winner to me, I look forward to the full version. Very Happy

Not sure where the Halo feel comes from elusiv, but either way a damn good demo. I've yet to go online with it, i would think it would be some crazy s**t if any of the levels are designed like that one where you shoot the glowing things to spin the room around. Razz Twisted Evil

Just how the hell your going to find that twat of a camper in this god only knows. Smile I do like the way you can actually shoot people through the teleporters tho. Wink

I really loved the first stage and the interactivity in it..
Playing poker, jukebox, switching channels on the tv etc etc.

Then I thought it got a bit boring.. Its exactly like Quake 4 really.
Same idea except in Quake 4 they are upgrading the humans to stroggs and not killing them all..

I enjoyed the first level and the beginning of the alien portion but then it just seemed much like every other game..

Ill probably get this title anyway just for the hell of it due to there being nothing else coming out im interested in.
