Editors' Note: This game is intended for adult audiences only. It contains graphic violence and profane language.

Prey tells the story of Tommy, a Cherokee garage mechanic stuck on a reservation going nowhere. Abducted along with his people to a menacing mothership orbiting Earth, he sets out to save himself and his girlfriend and eventually his planet.

In Prey, players enter a living spaceship that enslaves alien races and devours humans for lunch. Prey turns the first-person-shooter genre upside-down with new gameplay features like wall-walking and gravity flipping, making for intense single- and multiplayer experiences. Prey is built on a heavily modified version of Doom 3 engine and is developed by Human Head Studios under the direction of 3D Realms.

Editors' Review

+

Nearly a decade in the making, this first-person shooter built off the Doom 3 engine isn't likely to reinvent the genre, but it's still a great-looking game with enough gameplay twists to make the action interesting. The demo is very large and has rather high system requirements, but if you have the bandwidth, the firepower, and a tolerance for mature content, this download gives you a great look at the beginning of the full game.

The demo starts at what appears to be the beginning of the game. You are Tommy, a garage mechanic looking to leave the Cherokee reservation behind...if only your girlfriend, Jen, would let you. A dramatic abduction traps you, Jen, and your grandfather aboard a hostile alien craft with little explanation about your predicament. Armed only with a wrench, you must learn the aliens' deadly plan and destroy them all to save the planet.

Overall, the game looks fantastic, rivaling Half-Life 2 for character expression and reaction. Sound effects and visual details add nice touches, especially the Art Bell broadcast from the spaceship's radio, and the bad classic rock on the bar jukebox. Alien portals spawn enemies from nowhere, and little details like conveyor belts, health-spewing spores, and worm-like doors make the spaceship a unique environment for exploration and combat.

    "OK shooter"

    August 02, 2006   |   By RoboticUAV

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    It has a cool story-line, and great graphics. The weapons are sweet too. Challenging puzzles make it more than just a run-and-gun.

    Cons

    It's a bit too much like like D3 and HL2. Also, the "M" rating is there for a reason...

    Pros

    Innovative, new, and fast action! Switch the gravity, walk on walls, and play online! What 's better! I don't even need to mention the great story behind the game.

    Cons

    While the game is great (I actually bought it, thanks to this demo), the ending left me wanting more. I hope I won't be disappointed...

    "Prey for PC - Great Game."

    July 21, 2006   |   By indecipherable

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Prey, What to say other than the gameplay and the physics are amazing. The graphics are also out of this world.

    Cons

    The story is rather odd, and out there but you get it. It's more so run and gun than it his sneak and stealth. The weapons could be alot better.
