Prey Reviewed

Macworld's Game Room recently reviewed Prey, the unique first person shooter which features gravity flipping and wall walking. The game's story centers around the tribulations of Tommy who struggles to survive onboard an alien mothership after his capture. The Game Room gave Prey a score of 4 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

This game is rated M for Mature by the ESRB, and it deserves it. Not only is there a heavy amount of gore and violence, but there’s also a lot of R-rated language, Although to be fair, you can turn off the profanity in the game’s settings. And if you don’t, Tommy’s occasional comments are not only funny, but they’re spot on, offering the same sort of internal monologue I was having playing this game. Still, giant sphincters spewing acidic waste and zombified humans spraying to bits after they’re riddled with bullets do not a family-friendly title make.

The story behind Prey’s development is almost as interesting as Prey’s story itself. This game was first shown to the public in the late ’90s, and quickly gained a reputation for being another “Duke Nukem Forever”—a game that was heavily promoted by its developer but never released. The game went through several development cycles and ultimately succeeded in being released after Human Head Studios became involved. Long-time gamers may remember them as the developer of Rune, another interesting shooter (this time using a Viking theme) that came out back in the classic Mac OS days.
