Weak

Sets a new bar for tastelessness

To sum it up:

cons
Muddy, jaggy textures (played on hd)
Redundent enviroments and enemies
Portals and gravity leveling become tiresome gimmick
Horrible story and dialogue that disgraces Native Americans
Plays just lie Quake 4, which is bad

pros
The game took me 7 hours to beat (this is a pro because I couldn't imagine playing this any longer)

Stick to your Doom 3, if you can stand these generic FPS's

Good

Fun But Way Too Short

The game is fun but I have to admit it was extremely short. I beat it in a day and a half!!!!! I didn't use cheats, not like there are any, and I beat it on Cherokee (hard) difficulty and I'm not that good at beating video games. I had high hopes for this game and it was a real let down.

sincerely,
Fatman

Excellent

One of the best shooters on the 360

Prey is definitely a game that all 360 users have to try. It has everything anyone could possibly like, a good story, awesome setting, and some of the best shooting I have ever played in a game.

Prey stars Tommy, who is a bad mouthed Native American. He is soon abducted aboard an alien ship and must find his way home. However, the stupid sounding aliens didn't know Tommy escaped, so now he is running rampant around the ship. This is where the fun ensues, because now Tommy can use all their weapons and their skills. He can run on walls, ceilings, teleport, and even use a spiritual guidance to pass barriers.

The best part of Prey has got to be the surroundings. You are able to walk on the walls and when you do, the entire world shifts so it looks like you are playing normal, but everyone else sees you as upside down. It totally gives out a sort of sci-fi feel.

The multiplayer is fun too, but it ultimately gets boring after a while, as nearly all of the levels are the same, and there are only one or two modes to play.

I highly suggest this game to everyone, it is fun exemplified.
