Is Prey still worth playing

#1 Posted by left4doof (286 posts) -

I never played prey and since prey 2 is in the works I thought I should play prey  or should I wait for prey 2 ?

I did not enjoy Prey very much at all. If you have nothing else to play then I would say to go ahead. I wouldn't put in front of anything else though.

Prey 1 and 2 are very different games, they just share a name. Prey 1 is an FPS puzzle game while Prey 2 is some open world type game. It is an alright game but its not amazing, but I only got about half way through before getting pretty bored.  
 
If your playing for a connecting story then its not really worth it because i'm sure the most you will see of it in prey 2 is the main character in prey 1 coming back. (think it was mentioned) but you get what hes like in about the first 30 mins of gameplay.

Puzzle game? Prey is just a shooter.

I'd say the first 2-3hrs of the game are worth a play but after that the gameplay just repeats itself to much and the story moves at a snails pace of which there isn't much.

I don't think there has ever been a time when it was worth playing Prey.

Also, it seems to have little to do with Prey 2.

Play the demo. It features the best sequence of the entire game.

Yup there are no puzzles in the game. The portals that open are not puzzely and heavily scripted.
