Prey (2017) Review


An excellent game overall mixing elements of Dishonored (Developed by said Arkane Studios), Deus Ex and BioShock; both in feels and mechanics! Which is never ever a bad thing as those are all great game(s) series and personally among my favourites.

Provided your prepared to work with the loading screens coupled with the back-travel required depending on how dedicated you are to some side stuff.

Overall Review Rating:



The When

Completed in 7 episodes in just under 53hrs taking into account break times etc on May 11th 2018 on the PS4 Pro (originally played about 40-50% on PC first).

The Good

  • Great mix of inspired and new game mechanics that work really well and open imagitive gameplay possibilities.

  • Fantastic visual feel and atmosphere.

  • Great story with a great twist (go in blind, don't let no one spoil this for you!).

  • Absolutely fantastic soundtrack from Mick Gordon! The first day at work ensemble (Everything Is Going to Be Okay) will be your new 'Starting your day' track!

The Bad

  • A minor few of the side quests themselves are busy-work that is arguable on whether it's worth your time or not.

  • Sometimes you'll wish there was a fast travel or you knew certain things earlier beforehand that would have saved you some time.

The Ugly

  • The quite horrendous amount of loading screens that will mount up depending on how much back-tracking / side quests you are willing to partake.

The Who

If you like(d) / played BioShock, Dishonored or Deus Ex and wondered what it would be like if they had a child, I can't see why you wouldn't like this bad-boy (or girl). Sneak, shoot or/and alien your way out of problems.

The What

In Prey, you awaken aboard Talos I, a space station orbiting the moon in the year 2032.

You are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever – but things have gone terribly wrong. The space station has been overrun by hostile aliens and you are now being hunted.

As you dig into the dark secrets of Talos I and your own past, you must survive using the tools found on the station, your wits, weapons, and mind-bending abilities.
