Prey Review

finally.........scoring 85% from 11 reviews on Metacritic.com

Reviews Summary

The game that Doom3 and Quake4 wished they could be
Ruthless, violent, action packed, subversive and innovative
Prey's campaign wont' take too long and it's rarely difficult
Potential wasted by straightforward level design (?)
Multiplayer modes will have players involved for months
A corridor FPS, grows as you play and sucks you in
Visceral shooter, great story, great visuals
Ten hours later you'l have gotten what you expect from a well-done shooter

Ouch!
Multiplayer dosen't add much to the package (Gamespot)

Nice visuals, a whole level, naff story and playable arcade (pacman-style) machnines... In the demo!

Why bother with the fullgame I ask you...

The Elderly said...

(elderly considers whether Gnome is psychic)

I couldn't agree more...... and the pleasure of forking out €74.99 for 10 hrs ahh thats a big no from me too.

gnome said...

All ninjas are psychic and Askaninja has a new episode-podcastthingy!

75e... I tend to forget how costly console games are. even for the elderly...

But, the Elderly is (are) wise...

The Elderly said...

off we head to askaninja..... i like getting out......

indeed the pricing irks me, along with gamer pics on xbox marketplace, and hoovering things..... oh and doors that can't be opened in Silent Hill3

gnome said...

Gamer pics seems the most terrifying from the whole lot... Unopenable doors, on the other hand, seems like a tradition.

(hope you enjoyed askaninja)

The Elderly said...

indeed i did enjoy your fine link, three is a magical number and now i know why...not a lot of people know it....but now i know it...and knowing it gives me power.....and power i beleive is essential to mastering the skills of the ganinja.

that and being a gnome of course

gnome said...

Apparently (and unfortunately) so...
Still you can be an h-ninja... or just ninja... Yes.

The Elderly said...

but i so wanted to be a ganinja..... a lowly hninja or ordinary plain old garden variety ninja.......just dosen't have the same ring or power to it.

surely my race dosen't limit me, are there no special artifacts that can help me rise above my limited character stats.....?

gnome said...

Your stats would have to ..er.. plummet. At least the height thing should..

Garden (variety) ninjas are lethal too. Awww, here, have a hanky.

The Elderly said...

sniff........thanks pal........

(blows into gnomes hankie and hands it back)

I guess I was asking for too much, but my dad used to say reach for the stars and you'll at least hit the sky......

(takes gnomes hankie again.....)

blubber...i'll be fine....guess its the sugar withdrawal.....

gnome said...

Waitress, quick, a piece of Scwarzwald Torte. And a Chocolate souffle.

Oh, and a beer for me. Thank you dear...

The Elderly said...

Torte.....sniff, well i could try a little bit.....
it wouldn't be any harm i suppose
....chocolate souffle looks....

good....hmmmmm.....thats just too good.

snicee slake chop u've ngot ere, nd wuutress int qite wubmuftiful. chanks grome uuuur e wheel pulall

gnome said...

waitress! Please come sit with us. And do bring some more waitresses along. And a mousse for the gentleman.

Nice...

The Elderly said...

(smacking his lips) that is the nicest mousse i've tast.....no i couldn't take anymore....no...im reall......

well okay just a little bit, Gnome why are there 14 waitresses sitting at our table? your using pherenomes again arent' you........

gnome said...

Nope.... Just tipping heavily...

(and a "Charm waitresses" spell. It's a 9th level one)

The Elderly said...

ah heavy tipping (watches as gnome upends another waitress)

i couldn't borrow that charisma scroll for Saturday night could I?

gnome said...

Sure... I've got dozens of these things. Made in taiwan. Usually working all fine.

The Elderly said...
