^no kidding. The Prey engine that was developed in house had to be scrapped and then Prey ended up using a modified ID tech engine. They restarted development on it like 3 times and we were lucky it didn't end up being redone when it was 95% along once more like Duke was
the game was fun. more difficult than most. great story and wolfenstein looks like its going to use the same gaming "spirit form". the only problem was the same boring enemies. but it was much better than the garbage that was area 51.
Prey was surely a lot more interesting than Bioshock. I am still baffled why that game got so popular. When it came out, without even looking at reviews or screen shots I jokingly told everyone it is the best game ever made. But I was just joking, not sure what gives. Bioshock just felt like another revision of Kiss Psycho Circus but Prey basically does too.
I falsely judged Prey 1 before I play it... what could be fun about some old indian clan??
Eventually, had to play it at some time...
To be honest, I was amazed how the directing of the game and story line was done.
Gotta admit... I ENJOYED IT TO THE MOST \^_^/ WANT PREY 2 NOW.
I really liked Prey. It gave me headaches when I first started playing it from the radical perception shifts (the guys also pukes when they start happening which I though was appropriate), though. For some reason, I can't even pin-point it, it was just fun. A bit on the short side though.
I bought Prey thinking I had read-up on the game. The only issue was that I had to copy the files off the disk to install it. Something about the install process was broken when installing directly from disk. Anyway, after playing for a few minutes it becamse obvious that Prey was not the game I was thinking it was, but it was pretty fun none the less. It played much better after a GPU upgrade too (poor old 7600gs couldn't handle it very well).

i agree to an extent. I played both games back to back and Area 51 was just downright horrible. But the story in Prey got really ridiculous towards the end.
