kinjirossd's Prey (Xbox 360) review

Lackluster, pathetic attempt at a Doom-ish FPS

Story:
You star as Tommy, a Native American without any regard for his heritage, who was abducted by aliens. Unfortunately this never is truly elaborated upon. He only cares about saving his girlfriend and the dialogue gets to the point that if you hear one more whiny comment from him, you will reach the screen and choke him. Story is pretty bad considering who wrote it.

Graphics:
Straight Doom/Quake 4 carbon copy. Truly uninspiring

Gameplay:
It's a run of the mill FPS and it even fails to accomplish that fully. Aliens rush at you from portals and you shoot them. No challenge can be found here. Heck, you can even die all you want because the only consequence is a side trip to some a spirit world with flying manta rays or something of the sort. The games does try to introduce a gravity switch/railing twist, but after you've done that once, all future instances just impede progress. The weaponry does have an artistic flare symmetrical with the surroundings however, their functionality are FPS cookie-cutter.

Sound:
I can't even recall the musical score so that is self-explanatory

Overall:
Play it once if you can muster the endurance, get the easy achievement points and send it back

This is a pretty lackluster, pathetic attempt at a review of a game that is nowhere near as bad as you claim it to be.

    I have been anticipating Prey ever since it was first shown in it's new form a couple E3's ago. The demo was released a couple weeks before the game came out, and it just solidified my hype. Then the sad truth came out. The game is not as amazing as we all thought. First off it's probably nice to talk about the good. Well the technology that has always been associated with the game works perfect. Portals, weird gravity etc all show up as promised. Without them the game would be very mediocre. A...

    Prey offers interesting ideas, but doesn't fully execute on them. 0

      Although I found Prey to feel a little dated having come out a little more then 3 years ago, I still enjoyed my recent playthrough of this diamond in the ruff of bargain bins. When this game was new, it recieved praise from critics for throwing a lot of unique gameplay elements at gamers and boasting some pretty interesting and detailed graphics and enviroments. While Prey does offer some interesting settings and cool gameplay mechanics, it fails to truly realize the full potential of what the...
