Just ordered prey for pc from newegg for dirt cheap, I heard good things about the game hopefully its great^^

doubt anyone still plays the multiplayer though lol

It looked pretty good, I never did get around to trying it, you should make a video or do a review on it if you can.

It's kinda like Doom 3 only better. The multiplayer's bare basic deathmatch stuff, I didn't like it much. Single player's fun though.

I never tryed multiplayer because no one was still playing it when i got it but it has a solid single player

I played through Prey on the 360 about a month or two ago. The single player was better than I had expected although it's totally linear. Like 100% linear. It's good for the price it's at nowadays, and with good audio and visuals.

Prey is a solid shooter with some really nice innovating stuff. I enjoyed it very much.

It's like Doom 3 with more light, better gameplay, and some cool mechanics. Also, the main character is an Indian.

I heard you can't die.

#9 Posted by torus (1096 posts) -

Nah, you can't. You just go to a small annoying minigame.

@Bucketdeth:  yea I'll def do a review, if I can make a video I'll try, I'm not running the best monitor right now (1280X1024) even though my pc rig is pretty beefy.

hmmm maybe if I like it I could see if some GiantBombers wanna gather up at a server to play some multiplayer^^ should be getting it mid next week.

@torus:
yea I find the graphics to be impressive even this far out after the game came out......I hope this type of game doesn't die out, I also think the arena type multiplayer still has a place in the industry, although not as predominant as it was before, don't die peeez *tear* lol
#12 Posted by torus (1096 posts) -

Oh, I love arena FPS. It is a shame that it has mostly been eclipsed by objective-based multiplayer, which usually requires less raw skill.

@torus:

yea I'm a big fan of the style, I think if its done right it can be a really fun and flowing gameplay experience that's easy to hope in and out of.

but that doesn't mean I don't love other gameplay styles, I just hope the industry doesn't give up on the whole arena style after the whole UT3 thing......not that its a bad game...just majority of the population didn't find themselves coming back to it i think.

@Jman522:

true... Also i hope we see less mute fps characters... it's annoying. 

I like the fact that in prey the character really has a personality and really talks, though it can get cheesy. 

And as is the last game we'll ever see from 3D Realms, it is the only little glimp we'll probably see from duke nukem in a long time, but probably not forever. 

Duke Nukem still packs a punch :D

@Forcen:

Thats awesome, if you ever feel like playing multiplayer hit me up if I like the game enough I might try to get some giantbombers to hop on a server^^

I played the game for the 360 and thought it was a great game...it got a lot of shit, but it has a good story and the MP was fun the few times you could get it to run lag-free.

Prey was probably the last game I played all the way through on my old computer.  I liked it a good amount.  Was thinking of installing it again, but my old PC ran it fine.

#22 Edited by Linkyshinks (9880 posts) -

It was alright game, I had the PC version, My sense of direction is crap, so I found myself getting pretty confused very easily on some levels because of the flipping mechanics.

That spirit walk stuff made things easier, I became pretty accomplished at that :P

It had some pretty sweet guns. Pretty gangster those were.

Prey was great in the beginning but kind of lost steam toward the end.  The death minigame was kind of annoying too.
