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.
I must say I was looking forward to this game for the longest time, but all it ended up offering are a few extra game mechanics on top of very familiar gameplay. The gravity changing adds a new twist, as does the spirit walking in single-player, but if you've played quake or doom, you've basically played this. As for the weapons, they are a new touch, but aren't that rewarding to fire. In the end, the game gets old somewhat quickly, but it's worth a rent.
