The first 10 minutes: Prey

The first 10 minutes: Prey

Prey is one of these mythical games like Duke Nukem Forever or Team Fortress 2, announced years ago and either disappearing completely, or barely looking alive. Well, who would have thought 18 months ago that Prey would be in stores now, and that Team Fortress 2 would be back again? Certainly not me, so I'm quite happy to present this video of the first 10 minutes of Prey, that many of you guys certainly know already thanks to the demo. My full impressions and another video, this time showing what's happening after the demo ends will be online either tonight or tomorrow.

Still dont no if to get this game! The demo got a bit boring after awhile (Single Player)! Multiplayer would proberly be the only reason Id buy it!
Might rent it thou!

I got it on Launch day, and it really is amazing! The Single Player is so much better than just the Demo, please don't judge the whole game by that, as you will be VERY misled!! Plus, the Multiplayer rocks too! Besides some lag issues, it's kinda fast-paced (Not quite Unreal, but alot quicker than Halo), the maps are pretty cool, though there could be more of them. Overall, i'm very happy with my purchase, as are many others.

just be forewarned that if you buy the LCE you will most likely get a scratched game disc as it is just on a rubber dot on the back door of the tin. :(

i got this game yesterday (uk) and i must say this has been one of the most satisfying fist persons ive played in a long time, the story is engaging, graphix (might not be on a par with GOW) are very nice indeed
and the whole gravity and portal thing.....very nice ,very well thought out.

and some of the weapons just crazy.

wipes the floor with doom 3 and quake 4, (imo) one of the best fps out at the moment

Limited Collector's Edition

I think this game was fabulous for the single-player demo, but absolutely despised the multiplayer. I don't agree that faster is always better.

I think their multiplayer weapon damage and health ratio is unbalanced. Many game websites also said this.
I would say if you wanted to buy the game, get it for single-player, and it will be much better than demo, because the demo showed the initial puzzles, and the later game builds up on them.

Looks ok since the single player is only 6hrs i will just rent this game for about a month or less.

I've beaten this game twice and it has secured a place in my heart as one of my favorite games. I really love the puzzle they throw you into and let you try and figure out and how they play with the dimension of space and gravity. Very well done game and it just felt so extremely satisfying when you finally beat it, awesome game.

FYI the second part right after the end of the demo is ready and can be downloaded from the game's page. It's just too late for me to write a complete news, so I'll do that tomorrow.

Great game, I'm about half way through and I love it. The weapons are friggin great also.

Well the voice acting and dialogue seem a bit crap. maybe it plays fun.

to my eyes and i have got a big hdtv screen the pc version of the game looks much better than the xbox360 one, but its a great game, its like what quake 4 should have been ;-)!

The first 5 minutes of the game were great. Runeman:), Card games and judas priest. I was like "wow. All this fun stuff", but when you get to the spaceship, there's nothing fun:/ Well, those "underwear- guy's" were pretty fun...

I have no idea what you just said....

I played the demo on my PC and although i was just able to drag enough power from my graphics card to display the bump maps and stencil shadows i was impressed by the gameplay. The gravity bending and portals were really cool.

Downloading now... can't wait to see how it looks on 360. :)

I just got the game yesterday and I must say I was impressed with how they play with gravity and the portals in the game. Really cool stuff there. Just played for an hour or so, but it looks really good.
