PREY, You gotta love it
OMG, I love it, the way the bar in the intro was so interactive, the fact you "aqquire" your tools in such interesting ways,  portals ( a bit serious sam) but still great, And the gravity is amazing too. Anyone whos played the first few levels will agree i hope.


But what do you guys think?

Re: PREY, You gotta love it
Finished the game, it was awesome aside from a huge plot hole (one of many, but this one is weirder to me).

Spoiler:
Who were those little girls, and why did they come back to haunt me?  :confused:  :shaking:

Seriously though, they seemed to have tried to make a more FEAR like game but then gave up on it and some parts seem to have been left over without any explanation

Yep, for for 360 at least. For a while now, I believe.

I wonder if its worth getting, the demo was very dull.

Weren't you the one person back in the very first Prey thread who didn't like the game, though?

Not the only one. I didn't like it either.

Am I wrong to assume that it's another Doom3 clone, like Quake 4 was?

Re: PREY, You gotta love it
I liked the demo and was going to buy it but everyone says the full game is very short and the initial wow factor wears off quickly. I'll just wait for SCDA and Crysis instead.

No, but it is much better than either of them I can assure you.

And yes, it's very short. If you wait after the credits you can see they are trying to milk this game for all it is worth.

^^^ I agree with you there. It does feel like Quake 4 and Doom 3 though - Quake 4's stroggy and Doom 3's screaming.

at least with prey, it shows proper usage of specular maps.
the engine itself really does lend itself to curvature, whether it be steel pipes or fleshy walls that look like they want to -eat- you.
the earth-type stuff (the bar, etc) look real nice, but could've looked a lot better.

Re: PREY, You gotta love it
There are some Very nice original effects in the game as well, for instance when you approach mother or Jen i forget whic, and as you near darkened corridoors the floor and walls slam into place/form before you. I was like wow, then i was like whoa i feel sick........:D

The localisefd gravity fields are coool, Plus quite near the start when you enter a portal and exit shrunken, I'm not sure if the exit led to another sectioned off part of the level or whether the portal actually scaled you dwon, If its the sectioned level trick BOO !!

If it was the actual scaling then that is OH SO COOL!!!!!!
ITs all good :D

Quake 4 owned Doom 3 in every way. Okay it was pretty similar in it's gameplay mechanics, but the way it was played and the pacing was a million times better.
I mean I actually finished Quake 4, but couldn't be arsed with Doom 3. After you do Hell there's nothing else to see.

it seems that all Id do these days is make a pretty engine, they really need better story writers.

Re: PREY, You gotta love it
Q4 was Q2 with a boob-job, strogg conversion was just to differentiate it from Q2 enough to stop complaints in my opinion.

What. Don't tell me you think they ever had any semblance of story in thier games at all.

Hilariously, they actually hired a professional writer to pen Doom 3's story. How a published author could bring himself to create a character like Betruger (or, well, just about anything in the game really) just boggles my mind. They might as well have cast a giant angry face with 'I AM TERRIBLY EVIL' tattoed on its forehead.
