“Prey’s space station is fantastically explorable and its shape-shifting enemies maintain tension when combat doesn’t.”

“An ornate and clever if slightly under-cooked System Shock successor, which makes the most of a truly magnificent space station setting.”

“The worst version of Prey is the game its ending thinks it is, an action-y game with stealth elements about humanity and moral choices. The best version of Prey is the game that happens in between, one where you ignore its plot completely, take your time to explore every cranny, and hide in a tree to look at the stars. It fails itself when it tells you what to do, but you have plenty of opportunities not to listen to it and have a great time in the process.”
