Prey has a demo on Xbox Live and Steam, but if you’re still on the fence, we have some initial thoughts after spending an inordinate amount of time messing around with the game.
I first saw Prey behind closed doors at Gamescom 2016, and I saw a game that was as impressive as it was intriguing. You can turn into a cup? What the hell are those “Typhon” things? Is he really going to stab himself in the eye?
Initially, the closest comparisons I could offer were between Prey and more contemporary titles including Bioshock, Half Life, and even a hint of Dead Space. It’s a horror shooter set in a wide linear map, full of wacky and wonderful weapons and gadgets, with an edge of tension and fear. And prey’s trailers really don’t do the full game justice.
